A few good blogs

Well here I am again with two posts in one week - blimey! I don't even know where I have found the time to be honest.  It's been a very busy week but end of term is looming and I am counting down the last few hours in the classroom before we begin two glorious weeks off!!  Yay!!   It's been a very 'cuddly' week this week has.  We visited the children's farm on Monday and I cuddled a lamb, a baby chick, a tiny rabbit and a rat, and stroked an alpaca and calf.  Then today we had a visit from The Animal Lady and I got to stroke a python, a tawny owl, a tortoise and even a skunk!! OMG, they were all absolutely gorgeous and I have been in my element!  I did decline stroking a bearded dragon though - sweet though it was, it looked too prickly and uninviting to me, so I just blew him a kiss!!

Here's a little something I conjured up this week which I am showing in 4 different Magnolia blog challenges.

I am showing this off in:
Totally Tilda - Tilda holding flowers (I did have some after all!!)

and here's the finished product:

It's a tealight candle holder which I saw on Stempelinmaleins blog and I just had to have a go.  It honestly does have lots of folds as you have to make a box to begin with, then there's the back/underside.  Tilda is coloured with Copics - my current 'thing' and I hope you like! 

If you've got a few minutes to spare, it would be great if you would pop over to Midweek Magnolias and take a peak at the amazing work our fabulous DT have created with our sketch this week, and hopefully you will be inspired to join in (pssst.... there's a prize from Magnolia for one lucky player!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!
