Buddy's Stash Give-away

Hi all my lovely bloggy buddies...it's your bundle of golden deliciousness back again and what took me so long....well it took me a bit of time to rummage around the cubbyhole before I managed to gather some goodies to give-away....it's OK my crafty Mum gave me permission...alterior motive at work here....saves her making space for the US crafty purchases. I am really missing my Mum it seems ages since she left and I can't wait until she gets back....wonder if she will have some goodies for me.  Life has been tres boring since she left.....sitting watching TV with Dad....crikey that's not exactly riveting stuff.....I promise I will never complain about the hectic lifestyle in the cubbyhole again or those little sticky blighters that stick to my gorgeous coat.

But first I've been trusted with a very important job.....post my Mum's card for this month's challenge over at The Ribbon Girls Blog....fingers crossed I get it right....

The colour challenge this month is.... 
LILAC PINK AND WHITE

Gorgeous lace....pink dewdrops and Stickles all from HERE and if you pop over and see The Ribbon Girls you will get all the details on how to join in the fun and be in with a chance of winning this bumper bundle of goodies

At long last it's......
TIME TO SPLASH THE STASH
Christmas Papers....SU Silent Night Stamp Set..LOTV Cute Squares...Mum's favourite snowflakes...bling...buttons and ribbon
and a card from me

And you all know what to do girls...just leave me a comment here before midnight on Thursday 2 December and I will be back bright and early Friday morning to announce the winner

Off to have another power snooze dreaming dreams of being back to snuggling up in the cubbyhole with my Old Mum....roll on Tuesday lunchtime.   I am absolutely exhausted with all this blogging malarkey so I am having a bit of break for a few days and I have no idea how to keep this at the top anyway....maybe not such a whizz kid as I thought....but no doubt the wanderer will be catching up with you all bright and early on Wednesday morning with all the hot gossip from NYC.
Big Hugs and Furry Snuggles
BUDDY xxx

Edited to Add: just a quick message from sunny but cold NYC.....having a ball and am all shopped out....so relaxing today and getting all packed up for our flight home late on Monday night.....not looking forward to the wintry weather back home......Hugs Kath xxx

  6. Hi Buddy, first hope your back is feeling and getting better, though with the cold weather I bet you could use an extra layer. Hope |Dad has been taking you for walks. I somehow think your mum will need to make room still for all her crafty goodies but your choice of candy is fab, you sure are a fluffy cuddly guy with great taste. I hope mum's flight doesn't suffer any hitches cased by all the fluffy cold white stuff and I bet she will need lots of cuddles to keep her warm and of course because she has missed you, even if she does seem to be having a fab time. Hugs and cuddles.

  19. Buddy Dec 2 is my birthday. I would be so happy to help you out by taking this stuff off your paws. I hope you don't miss your Mum to much. I don't think NYC is a place you would like. There are some nice parks but they are cold and dark this time of year. If you come come in the spring.
