Make A Wish

I have a few very special peep and family birthdays coming up in the next few weeks so I am trying to squeeze some card crafty time in between coats of wall painting and furniture painting for my little princess's new room (yup, I'm STILL painting!).  So much in my house is in a state of "in progress" right now but at least it's all still moving along.  I can't wait to see everything done, but it is slow going because with school out I have a little "helper" - if you know what I mean, lol!

I used Fairy Princess 1 by Mo Manning for this card - don't you just love all the personality this little cutie has? LOL!

I can't resist her bit of attitude!

Tonight I was out watering my tomato plants and I found the biggest, fattest, ickiest caterpillars ever!  I've only seen Tomato Hornworms a couple times before, but they were much smaller.  These bad boys though, ohmygosh they were HUGE!  The makes-your-skin-crawl kind of huge.

I went running into the house for my camera (of course) and asked my hubby what I could use to pick up a caterpillar with because I didn't want to use my hands.  He looked at me like he was confused and/or I was nuts.  I tried to explain their size (and the big spike on their butts) but I think he thought I was exaggerating.  Being the good hubby that he is though, he put down his laptop, grabbed some gloves and came outside to rescue me.  My hero.

You should have seen his reaction when he saw them - I wish I had taken a picture of that, LOL!  He couldn't believe it.  And he actually had to struggle to pull them off the plants because those buggers are strong.

Yikes these guys give me the creeps.  I can't believe I didn't see them on my plants sooner, and now I'm kind of nervous to be reaching into the plants picking next time.  Maybe I'll wear my oven mitts that go up to my elbows.  **Shiver!!**

Cranky Old Lady

That is the nicest way I can put it.  My witchy cat Willow is just plain ornery.  She rarely wants to be pet, and when she does she changes her mind so fast that she gives no warning and lashes out at you.  Just cranky to the core.

Today for some crazy reason she decided to climb up on hubby as we were on the sofa relaxing.  He was brave and let her stay, and although she started to purr (which never happens) she sat there frozen and giving me a deep glaring evil look.  I just had to jump up and take a pic.  She didn't give me the same intensity after I had my camera in hand but I caught this one:

I laugh so hard looking at her giving me those eyes.  She is just one unamused and ornery cat.  And this is the happiest that she gets, lol!

A Bunch of Birthday Wishes

Happy 4th peeps!  I'm sitting here stuffed from a yummy BBQ, how 'bout you?

My BBQ was a combination of a holiday get together and a surprise birthday party for my sweet mom-in-law.  You know what that means don't ya?  Yep, this morning right up til I walked out the door I was frantically trying to finish her birthday card.  But not my fault this time though, honest!!  I would have had it done a couple nights ago but somebody and his dad decided to delegate all the last minute shopping and planning to me so I was kinda busy.  At least that is my excuse reason and I'm sticking to it, lol!

I love this super cute Mo Manning image, so fun to color. 

Sigh...definitely feeling the addiction of her digis.

Hope you all have a great day - have fun and be safe!
