Run Away & Hide!!

Arghhhhh, if you're a regular visitor here at The Camels Hump, you will know I always try & enter the monthly progressive challenge over on Facebook for Sweet Pea Stamps. Well, when I received my free image this month I really wished I'd given it a miss....I HATE clowns, I know a lot of people do, but its not just clowns its people dressed up in costumes I freak out. I've always had it in my head that if you don't know who they are, they could do anything & get away with it!!! Yeah I know a bit weird but thats how I roll lol....I remember being about 8 mths pregnant with our Danni & we had free tickets to a special open day thing at Alton Towers, no point in wasting them so we went. Obviously I couldn't go on anything, but had a fab time laughing at Nige. Well we went for a walk around the little gift shop village & this 7 foot tall Peter Rabbit person thing was standing outside a shop. He moved to come & say hi......I screamed & ran (well wobbled lol) whoever was in the costume thought it was funny so chased me....mad Nige's day seeing me being chased by & giant Peter Rabbit. Got some free Peter Rabbit teddies tho for baby lol so was all good in the end!!!

Anyhoos enough rubbish yappin' on with  my creation. I decided to try & do half cute & half kinda zombie, what do you think? I haven''t put it on a card, as Katie wants it for her wall...lol strange child!!

See not so scary clown now, just a scary zombie lol!!!

Magical Tree Santa!

Wow what a week I have had....the dreaded flu on top of an M.E flare up, it totally knocked me off my feet. I ended up spending 4 days in bed sleeping, most of the time with Nico. He loves his momma, as soon as I settled back down again after being for a wee or drink he wanted straight back in with me, the only time he wasn't there was when he was hungry or eating his food! Little love has made being poorly that little bit easier! Did I ever tell you skunky snuggles are the best!!

Thankfully I had today's card already made early last week, so all I've had to do this morning is pop it in my blog & write my post!
