MDUC #32

Its so hot and sticky today - it would be great to head off to the pool again, like Ruby and I did yesterday (her first time). She didn't mind it too much, grizzled a bit to start off but soon after she was all smiles and loving the water like her little friend Albie who was splashing in water and getting himself in the face with it - tooo cute :-) I think Ruby liked it sooo much, its why she started to ball as soon as we got her out - or maybe it was because she was a bit chilly!! she did have her teeth chattering - but she doesn't have teeth so that was just to funny to see LOL.

I must say that even though I haven't been blogging for very long I can't believe how many talented people are out there showcasing their lovely cards etc. I really have been inspired to go that little bit extra with mine. Actually its Kellie Winnell's blog that has me gushing (over her stuff) as you can see I've started to use Lace and paper doily's - never would have thought of paper doily's (and such a bargain at Spotlight!!). You can check out Kellie's blog from my blog list. I also love looking at all the other entry's in the Magnolia Down Under challenges which have just become weekly - so I'm loving that. Hopefully one day I will get a mention for my work - but I think I have a long way to go yet, especially with my water colouring;-)

So this is my entry for the weekly challenge at Magnolia Down Under. This week we had to use Grey and Pink. Such a pretty colour combo.
