The Scarlet Pimpernel

Hi Guys and Gals,
Where have I been, well I will try my best to make a long story as short as possible.............
Those of you who have met me know that a neighbours cat has adopted me(trust me not the other way around) by using Ninja tactics to get in my front door, and after a battle of the wills she got me wrapped around her little paw.
A week before christmas the neighbours approached me and asked me to have her, as they felt she had bonded with me !!!!!!
While I have got used to her(I call her Doodles), the sad fact is I am allergic to cats, so I found a new home for her to go to.  The downside to this was they have a male cat and Doodles hadnt been spayed, so guess who had to cat sit while we waited for the operation. Doodles is used to being outside all the time, except when she is in with me so keeping Doodles in while we waiting for the operation made her stir crazy and turned her into physco cat, and me into physco woman trying to keep her occupied.

So if I got my crafting stuff out she would think it was a toy, if I got my knitting out wool would dissapear, and if I got my laptop out she would chew the cables, you get the picture.
So no getting to play for me until she went to her new home on Friday night, a very sad night for me :(
Well I did say I would try and make it short lol.:)
So as soon as sirstampalot opened Saturday morning I was on the door step and collected my new magnolia stamps.
