Why am I not surprised that your entries last week for the Dotty Background were just the bees knees, they all knocked spots off my card.
Pop back to see who the winners are and not forgetting Tuesday for the Hints and Tips section on today’s challenge.
Before we journey on down the page just want to mention that Zoe has a NEW RELEASE of stamps out Digi and Rubber – this little beauty is called
Sandy at Beach – adorable isn’t she – well just check out the rest here and be prepared to drooooool!!!
There’s this family who had a parrot that was always
embarrassing them by cussing and other stuff.
So one day the boy took the parrot and stuck him in the freezer.
Two hours later the squawking stopped.
The kid checked the freezer and the parrot said, “Okay I’ll stop cussing,
but I have one question”. The boy said, “What”?
The Parrot asks, “What did the turkey do”??? 😀
