Truthful Tuesday 28th March

My apologies: this went out a day early and in order to respond to comments has to stay here. Working on it CRAFT moment I’m afraid.

Welcome to Truthful Tuesday, a prompt originally set by PCGuyIV, covered by Melanie and now one I am temporarily hosting until he wants to take it back.
Unlike Fibbing Friday, the concept is quite simple in that I ask a question and you reply honestly and truthfully.
You can either leave your reply in the comments or write your own post and pingback to this one, then leave a link in the comments so that I can find it.

My question this week is

Do you allow your pet to sleep on the furniture?

Yep, I hold my hand up, Maggie always slept with me.
Maya on the other hand has never tried and will not be encouraged!

The Ring Finger

A few captions from me for Sadje’s What do you See #179 27th March

I’ve heard of the Ring Finger, but this is taking it too far, don’t you think?

Space travel was getting very popular so The Interplanetary Police came up with some traffic signals.

You know that ring of confidence for fresh breath? Well it’s slipped.

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a multicolored metallic hand which is encircled by a golden ring. This probably is a computer generated image.

Cards made today 26th March

A little while ago, I went into a craft shop and stocked up with some trimmings I could use. One was a decoupage of an cartoon elderly cyclist with two smaller pictures as well.
The problem was the layer pieces were not perforated so I had to cut them out which is not easy with my hands using scissors. I used a scalpel blade instead and cut round the largest layer piece but gave up on the others as they were just too fiddly. No picture of those three, or the one card I made out of scraps.
Here are the other ten I made today. I won’t ask you to guess the main theme!!
