Gorgeous girl!

Good afternoon! Hope everyone is keeping warm on this freezing cold spring day! I thought I would share some photos of my Gorgeous Girl, Mathilda. She is now six and a half months old, getting to be a very big girlie! It's not easy taking photos of her while she's awake as she desperately wants my camera! I had to resort to bribery (any food will do!) to get these!  That dead looking yellow thing behind her is Dirty Duck, one of her favourite toys, he is still intact (at the moment!). Most of her toys are currently awaiting major surgery to reinsert thei gizzards and have their wounds stitched up (again)! Not the easiest of tasks as Mathilda tends to try and grab them whilst I am performing these delicate operations!
As you can see she is stunningly beautiful (in my unbiased opinion). Some of the time she is good! She is always very affectionate (it can be a bit painful sometimes!!) and extemely friendly....
Oh, yeah, I have made a card too....

I treated myself to a couple of the new Gorjuss stamps at the weekend,( no self control) and had time for a little play yesterday. I kept the card quite simple because I really just wanted to play with the stamps!
Thanks for looking!
