Building a Snowkitty!

wow! Where are these weeks going...the girlies start back at college in 3 weeks!!! Doesn't seem like five minutes since Katie finished school back in May!! Must be old age making time go faster lol!!
Nico is doing great, he will be 13 weeks on Friday. Eating lots, loves sugar snap peas, monkey nuts, cottage cheese & yellow bell peppers! Also loving his walks....me & Nige are off out now with him, not sure where yet but I'm sure he will love it!
Katie took a photo of him being a demon, he bites really hard now when he's playing so I was trying to get him to bite himself & hopefully stop him.....not a chance, you have to wait for them to grow out of it!!! Lol...bruised fingers for a while yet then!

Anyhoos the real reason I'm here. Try Stampin' on Tuesday have a new challenge starting today, with a fab sketch. You will find it either here or at the end of my post!

Aww little Nico is growing up fast Shell… sounds like he is going through the equivalent of 'terrible twos' but thankfully they do grow out of it.
I love your Christmas Card… the papers are gorgeous and such a fab layout… a very sweet image too! :-)
Hope you have a lovely evening!
Big Hugs
