All Creatures Great and Small, with the Cuties!

Good Morning, and thanks for stopping by! Hope the new week has got off to a good start - my Monday morning started a little earlier than planned - with a phone call from work at 4.55am!!! Megan has a summer job in our store, but is working with a team that has been seconded to another store which is being refit, and when it re-opens will be a Bunnings Warehouse - instead of a Homebase store. Anyway, apparently her alarm never went off this morning, and when she wasn't at the prearranged pick up, they realized what must've happened and phoned me to give her a kick - the poor soul was up and out in about 10 minutes! Fortunately, I'm an early bird anyway, so I've had time to catch up on some DT stuff before I need to think about getting ready for work myself!

anyway, enough waffle - more today it is our "A Little Extra Cutie-ness" Inspiration post day - if you've not seen it yet, why not hop on over for a nosey??

our challenge theme is

  1. Oh, he's fun :)! Wonderful card Lisa, this would be perfect for my 24yr old son as he is still a cheeky monkey :D. Fab colouring as usual and I love the layered balloon, really effective.
    That was a bit of a rude awakening to say the least! I would definitely not stay up after that even though I'm up for 6.25am. Have a great week Lisa. Debra x
