Feeling Hot! Hot! Hot!

...well, not me personally, mind you, with that super sunny weekend we just had, I was a bit melt city.. however, the hot I am waffling on about today is the new challenge over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team blog. Tis time for a new monthly challenge and the team and I have been getting very inky indeedily. To see more of the hot creations, please CLICK HERE and you will be whizzed off on the back of a giant sombrero to see all the goodies...



So... you know me by now... so you know that I am a proud Mummy when it comes to my little furbaby AlfieCat... well, he was a clever boy yesterday! A very clever boy indeedily! Actually, he could be seen as being a very naughty boy too but... I shall leave that up to you. So... the back garden, otherwise known as the bombsite, has undergone a bit of a transformation in the last few days... basically the old sheds that were out there have been moved. So, these old sheds - and I mean reeeeally old - one of them looks like it was an extra in the Wizard of Oz - well, they both harboured little rodenty secrets... namely little mousey nests... and AlfieCat being a super intelligent and clever little fella has been laying in wait, ever so patiently and today, his patience bore fruits.






Yes, there I was, sitting in the Room of Stash when I heard a great thundering noise on the stairs... so I went out to have a look and there was Alf, resplendant in his hunter-gatherer role, tossing a poor mousey up the stairs, then running after it, catching it and hurtling back down the stairs again. Said mouse was alive (goodness knows how) so out it went into the long grass at the side of the house (where Alf doesn't go) An hour or so passed and again, I hear a thumping about, this time it is downstairs. "Further investigations are needed" I thinks to myself... so off I trot, down to the dining room where Alf is now tossing an even ickler mousey about... this time it is stiff... so yep, it was either deceased when it was caught or... Alfie helped it on its way. Said mousey was dispatched to the great Wheely Bin in the sky. So, back I goes to the Room of Stash. I settled down to a nice afternoon of inkyness and time passed, like it does you know. So, I hear a little tinkle bell on the stairs and AlfieCat appears in the Room of Stash and guess what!!! He has brought a little pressie for his Mummy... awwww, bless him (not!!) And he drops the little pressie at Mummy's feet... and the little pressie runs off under Mummy's desk... and Mummy is NOT pleased at all... However, I haven't got the heart to tell him off... he was bringing me a prize after all. So, the third mousey of the day was rescued and popped outside and the door was then locked and AlfieCat was confined to barracks... much to his disgust as he tells me there is a veritable feast of meeces out there... I told him there is always tomorrow lol Right... best go... enough wafflings for one day!!! Thanks for looking.. have a grand day! TTFN

Hi Huns
Great to hear from you. Yup I have been out of circulation and off the boil. Hoping this new month may turn things around. Feeling a little brighter and more motivated.

I love the bright colors and the ink dipping pen nib is fab.

Marijane said...

Your "red-hot" tag is really smokin' - my favorite part is the little pen nib and the bottle of ink! How cleaver of you to do that. What really makes my day, however, is your AlfieCat story! I just love hearing what he has been up to and your storytelling is magnificent! You've made my day. Thanks!

Andrea said...

Love your hot colors! Are those dates meant to refer to the years the sheds were built?

Love the story- one of ours used to be very fond of bringing her mousey playmates indoors too! Once, Beloved Husband called me from the kitchen, to the living room. 'Quick,' he calls 'you have to see this'.I'm busy, I call back from the kitchen, thinking he wanted me to see something on the tv. 'No, really, come here quick, he calls again. So into the room I go, to see him lay on the sofa watching tv, with a little grey mouse sat on the arm of the chair by his head, cleaning his whiskers & watching the telly! lol.
