Our little lodger & a card!

This little man has adopted us much to our cats disgust! He has been with us for around a month now. Last night, much to Tink's disgust, he managed to sneak upstairs and found Tinkerbell's bed which is on Adam's bed when he isn't home! It's a little small for him as he is like a gorgeous big fluffy toy! Grandaughter's  have named him Fluffy lol! He loves to be cuddled and makes himself at home.

Card is for my BIL it's his birthday tomorrow.

Less is More week 74

Hi everyone!  
It's hard to believe it's a week yesterday (Friday) since Adam & Diana got married.
Time goes so fast. 
It was Adam's medal parade yesterday we miss so much because he is in Germany. It's very hot over there now so it was a long but proud day for them. Typical it rained most of the time we were there apart from the actual wedding!
It's Saturday once more and time for Less is more challenge 74, it's lucky dip this week.

We had a wonderful time. It's lovely to see them all so happy & I hope it lasts forever.
Kelly is such a happy baby and is as good as gold.
Hope to be back with some cards soon. I have loads to catch up on. Sorry I have been such a bad blogger lately and have neglected you all but we have had so much going on lately. Adam only has a mobile dongle so couldn't get on very much.
