Fab'n'Funky Challenge #144 ~ Animals....

Good Morning all...Well not so sure of the good, it's so dark & miserable here, not liken these morning.
I was really thankful when hubby said he would do the school run, think I will stay in all day and try and get some DT cards made.

I have just checked my emails and have about another  20 plus since last night of anonymous comments of these kinds...buy alprazlam, buy tramadol, order alprazolam no prescription, Valium for anxiety and many more along these lines. I have been having these comments for about 2 weeks now, must be 600+ , so annoying. Are any of you having these and is there anyway of stopping them...any help would be much appreciated.

Anyway I have popped on to let you know about our new Challenge starting today over at Fab'nFunky...
Our lovely talented Sue has picked the theme....

Animals 

So sorry Sue, I didn't get a card done for your fab challenge, I love animals too....just do not know where the last week went.
