Lenny the Lion

Oh I knew it wasn't going to be a good day when I struggled to get out of bed this morning. There I was sitting in my nightie have my brekkie when the door knocked. My first thought I wasn't expecting any parcels! I peeked round the door to see a large van with my new chairs and sofa, was it Monday already and I've missed a whole weekend! No, when I told the girl on phone it would have to be Monday and not Saturday I really thought she believed me.
Lucky my DD was awake and we both got dress really quickly and sort of tidy the front room and the guys on the van dumped the old suite on the front lawn!
I'm hiding in my craftroom which is coolest place at the moment and hoping nothing more happens, at least I finally get to assemble Lenny a new stamp from Pink Gem Designs isn't he cute and perfect for a Leo whose birthday is at the end of the month.
I used the sketch from Create4fun but I've left it too late and there's probably a new challenge today. The papers are a mixture of Cosmo Cricket pads.



Janet has a fabulous candy over on her blog, check it out here.

Hi Debby,
Fantastic card. I love the image. I'm old enough to remember a ventriloquist whose dummy was a lion called Lenny.
