Howdy Rowdy-Roo!

HEre's our little man again in my FAVE photie of him!! He really looks like he's gonna chomp his way through the whole of that log!!
LO based on a class by the divine Charlottey who's blogless at the moment *Paddington Bear Stare*
Thanks to Charlotte- my LO is less prettiful than her's- mine's definitely grubby and dog-eared!!


Had a play with my new Hero Arts stamps I bought this month- so CUTE!!!
Based on a sketch by GeordieGirl- thanks Andrea!

Getting Inky- PERMANENTLY!!!!

Look what I got 2day!!!
Finally after years of umming and ahhhing I settled on Cherry Blossoms.
As a new Tattoo parlour had opened opposite Church it seemed a sign that now was my time to get inked *giggles* so I booked in and I was first customer 2day!
My guy was brilliant really took him time about the design and colours and spent ages colouring and shading these pretties!
Just a quick piccie on the Mac Cam.
The outline was bitchin' sore - I'd forgotten that bit!! After that (especially the top ones on my neck bones) the colouring in was a doddle.
Trouble is poor 15 year old fishy looks in desperate need of a touch up!! Ahh well another session in the chair of pain!!!

So relieved!!!

Had the threat of job cuts hanging over us at the old Oak Tree this week. Job cuts or TUPE. But fantastically 'DH' is the only one being kept on by his company- SO RELIEVED!!!!
Feel pants for his friends and co-workers but most still have jobs and that's a blessing right now.
Off to slump into a relieved heap on the floor!!!
