Luca is a hottie!

Finally a card!  This is Luca, how tasty is he and why didnt 18year old lads look like him in 1985?????

Luca is from Tickled Pink.
I have coloured him with PM's. I have distressed the edge of the image panel with adirondack dye ink.  The stamping around the edge of the DP and on the image panel is just a random swirly stamp and Cranberry adirondack.
The paper is from Papermania,surprised i can remember its been so long in my cupboard.

 The sentiment rubber stamp is from LOTV. Punches are from Martha, cutting dies from Marianne.

Thanks for looking!

Im a sucker for a sob story!

 No crafting again yet today, still working around yesterday's distaraction, i said i would show you didnt i.  Well, i went to Bromborough to buy a bag of bunny nuggies for Milly & Saphire and came home with
1 large bag of nuggies
1 pack of willow sticks
1 new bunny des-res
2 boy bunnies!!!!
and an empty purse
This is Jakey,the cute little one!

This is Sam,the rough & ready one!

They are both 2 years old best mates, apparently the previous owner had to move and was unable to take the babies, so they needed adopting. They have been sat in a pen since Oct/Nov cause nobody wanted them-they had to be adopted as a pair, i think there would be plenty of takers for Jakey becuase he is a cutie but Sam is bigger and has more in the personality department than cuteness.

So last night, (somewhere between fitting the 2 kids/2 bunnies/a hutch in the car, washing/drying Steve's footy kit, taking Steve to footy,keeping bunnies safe from a jealous Milly bun while i did the afore mentioned, and feeding everybody)  i had to put the hutch together in the dark while Stevie & Amber and the 2 boy bunnies watched a movie in Amber's room.  Both bunnies looked quite happy on Amber's bed, Sam tried to "be friendly" with Softy the bear- Amber asked if that meant Sam was gay?  oh the joys!!

Today i carefully introduced the boys to Saphire bun, they didnt try to kill each other so they may become friends but Milly will not tolerate them, she was running from one room to another last night making sure they were not in the house.
Anyway thats enough from me, im off now to put a sign up outside the house

See you tomorrow with a card!
