Cupcake. . .


My little Mojo has been on safari this week. She was fed up with the rain that we have been having here. She saw an ad in the paper that read "Camouflage Boot Camp" "learn from the experts how to blend in". So just like that, Wednesday morning, she packed her little rucksack and off she went.  She has sent me a picture of her with some of her new girlie friends... Arjana the leopard, Kagiso the giraffe and Themba the gorilla. 

My little Mojo says they nearly fell out when they all spotted a cupcake on the path leading back to the camp. It was a bit of tussle to see who could nab the cupcake before the others... My little Mojo says there was no contest really Kagiso, swooped in with her long neck and cruuuuuuuuuuum the cupcake was gone.. Apparently giraffe's go mad for cupcakes especially when there is a cherry on top.

The Snail Mail has been wonderful the last couple of weeks... Julie over at On the short side sent me this wonderful painting that she did for me...I was lucky enough to win her give away... The girl is gorgeous and I love the quote "Dream it up little one"   Thank you Julie I love her... :)

I also received this wonderful card from Tracey Fletcher King check out her amazing artwork... and she writes the funniest things...always has me laughing.... Thanks Tracey.. :)
Sharing all these goodies with Sunday Sketches... a little of my "Fun and Nonsense" for this weekend... xx
