Couple of challenge cards

The first card I made today was using the sketch over at My Paper World (see link on the left) I like the sketch but just couldn't come up with anything decent, so this is my rather feeble attempt
I've had more success with my card for the Magnolia challenge, you had to make a male themed creation, I only have a couple of male images from a swap I did a while back, I must buy some of these but most places are constantly sold out and there is such a big selection to choose from! I also made a couple of atc's, I owed one and the other will go into my envelope ready for my next swap! I really like these images from Pink Petticoat you get one set of images with an easter greeting and another without, I am going to make some more of these as I think they are quite sweet!

We started the day with great excitement, Treacle our very pregnant guinnea pig had had her babies, she has 5 of the little beauties, they are soooo....... sweet!!! We have black again ? It fascinates me as our piggies are brown and white, Treacle is a gingery brown with a white tuft on her head. 3 of the babies are like her although 2 of them have a white stripe aswell as the tuft, 1 is black and brown, and the little runt oh it's tiny (I so hope it survives it's beautiful!) it is 2 tone brown like a dalmation!! Here they are with mum

Yesterday with the in-laws went well, we over filled them with lunch LOL...! They wanted to nod off in the afternoon but the girls wouldn't let them! Adam, Joy and the children arrived late afternoon, Rebecca was fascinated with the guinnea pigs and kept going in and out of the hall to see them. The girls enjoyed having them here, and this morning Lillie told us that she enjoyed her day yesterday!!!
