What a swine

There's not much that could interrupt the first two weeks of having my new baby to make me get creative, but a dear friend catching swine flu whilst 22 weeks pregnant did it for me.

Lisa has a fab sense of humour so I know she'll love this. It goes with two challenges, 'Take Your Pick Colour Combo' at Papertake and 'Good Sense of Humour' at One Stop Craft Challenge:

Pink Petticoat image, Doodlebug paper, Fiskars punch, Copics, Nestabilities

The image is from Pink Petticoat and the sentiment I thought was just spot on! I love it and know Lisa will too, although it will probably make her cough a bit laughing at it. Shaded with Copics and mounted on Nestabilities.

Sorry such a short post but I haven't much time before Blake needs his next milk fix.

I have got time though to say a massive thank you for all the lovely messages following my post about Blake, thanks so much, I will get round to replying to you all soon I promise.
