Just For Fun

This week's theme on Just for Fun is 'Anything but a card'.  Well I didn't think they wanted to see a photo of me doing my cleaning (well it is Friday you know) so I ditched the duster and dug out this frame I made a while ago.

It's bits of Friendly Plastic layered over a chipboard frame so lots of colour and 'inclusions' which is a posh way of saying I pushed a few more left-over bits and bobs into the hot plastic.

It has been sitting in my 'to do' pile for a while so this morning I stamped the background and butterfly.  Not sure it works - just a tad too much (i.e. a lot) colour but hey ho, the sun is shining and I'm in a good mood.

Just back from a great walk with Sorrel with lots of interesting smells (for Sorrel) as the walk is through woods and we see lots of squirrels.  Well I say 'we' but she misses most of them and only picks up the scent when she is almost sitting on top of them then decides there is nothing more interesting in the world than a squirrel chase.

Off to the vets this afternoon as she has a sore eye so that's another £30+ she cost me - think I'll get a budgie next time.

Oh how can you say that she is so cute, love the way her ears flop forward!
Your hanging is gorgeous, lovely colour combination . Great idea using the friendly plastic, I've struggled to make anything as halfway decent as yours using it. XX

Just lovely Ann and the inclusions compliment the colours nicely :) the only thing I would add is some wire for the butterflies antennae ;)
Thank you for sharing your wonderful hanging with us at Just for Fun

Very jewel-like colours Ann which I love to see. Yes, this is a fun piece with those colours which brighten up a dull day (not that it is, but brr it's cold)
Loved reading about Sorrel on her walks and I will never believe that you would have a budgie next time. Not the way you love Sorrel.
Thanks for joining us on JFF - Hugs, Neet x and one for Sorrel x
