Good Morning Ladies,
Firstly I must apologise for not making it back into the café yesterday, it was just one of those days!
Todays card....Hmmm I am still not sure about it to be honest, I was in love with the idea of it, but not so sure about the reality!
I used Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals for almost all of the card, the two smallest Ovals are Spellbinders Floral Ovals.
I used Papermania Capsule Collection Parisienne Blue, to cut 3 ovals, I then cut the Grand Decorative Ovals in the three largest sizes out of Dark Blue Card and matted it over the patterned paper, I then cut the middle Sized Floral Ovals to cut a Dark Blue Mat and the next size down for cutting the sentiment, with I stamped in Blue the greeting and inked through the die with Antique Linen Distress Ink, using one of the new Sponge Eggs, them are great stress relievers!
I added a cream Bow to the right hand side of card and topped with a Creative Expressions Navy flower and then added a pearl to the centre, to brighten it up, the little pieces of accent ribbon on top of the bow came in the pack, so I used them to continue the colour theme through to the bow, I the added a few pearls around the Navy frames and some tiny pearls onto the papers to highlight some of the flowers.
I know its a bit different, but what do you think?
Please leave your comment as usual.
Now back to my day, I had all of about 1 and a quarter hours sleep the night before, worrying about Bella and the lump, so I was very tired, in a lot of pain, I think it must be from walking to and from the Craft Room when Pat and Sue are here and we are crafting around the dining table, I have to see how things look together before I make the decision to use something, it seemed that everything I needed was back in the flaming craft room, you can almost see a groove in the carpet, please don't think I am moaning about us all crafting together as I would never do that, those two ladies mean the world to me, the have 'bought the sunshine back into my life'! But I am usually excited to show them things I have made or received, they were both very envious of my Plaque from Myra, also the card that you sent with the little flower on reminded me that I bought a load of it when it was on offer on C & C ages ago, so I suggested that at one of our meet up days we will make some flowers, I then remembered I had the Ranger Melt Pot and all the gorgeous powders that you put in to melt, they look like jewels! I like to use it with Clear embossing powder to drop handmade flowers in, they come out all shiny, when dry they stay shiny and very hard, so that's another idea for another weekly meet up, this week I had great fun helping Pat make up some 'Izzy Bags', she went home with the biggest smile, which made my day!
Now onto the vets, our appointment was at 4,45 pm yesterday, I had been sick with worry all day, we started getting things ready to leave at 4.30, I got the pet carry bag out, both cats ran in different directions! we decided it would be easy to put Milo's Harness on him and put his lead on and take him out that way, so Sophie got him sorted and asked me to take him out to the car, so I carried him out towards the car, he then decided he wasn't going to co-operate, sank his huge claws into the bottom of my neck, my arm and my side, at this point I wasn't holding him, he was fixed to me with his claws, he then went to push away but almost couldn't get his claws out of my neck and just pulled with all of his 4.9 kilo weight, resulting in the most painful line of about 6 lumps that are very red and sore at the moment, he scarpered into the back garden, I was in so much pain and stressed by this point I just burst into tears and went in to get something to stop the blood flow, meanwhile Paul and Lucy were still trying to catch Bella, who is the Houdini of all cats, I ended up calling the vets to explain we would be late, 40 minutes late, Paul was the next to be injured by a very stressed Bella.
he has to amazing scratches around his wrists, arms and up his leg! We finally made it to the vets, Milo on lead and Bella who had exhausted herself to the point of collapse was wrapped in a very decadent purple fleece throw! I believe that the vets must have some kind of magic spray in the air because as soon as we get in the treatment room the pair of them were totally compliant, Milo was weighed, checked over and given his booster, Bella was weighed, given her booster and then the vet gave her lumpy bits a good examination, the diagnosis..........a fat belly!!!! If you only knew who much I was worried about her, it is just where she has gained a little to much weight and as her body is tiny in comparison to Milo, she (like her mummy) is carrying her wait around her tummy and the lumps inside are just where the fat has gathered around her Mammories! (again like her mummy)!
We got home, all very battered and bruised to find Freya at the door for my scheduled hair cut, we finally got to eat at about 8pm and then needed to pop to shop as I will be home alone as Paul has gone away to Cambridge today.
I will add something that will make you smile, when we went to bed last night, where do you think Milo slept?????? yes you guessed it, in the bl***y cat pet carrier, the whole night, curled up sleeping like a baby, little monkey!
PLEASE SEND IN YOUR PET PHOTOS BY FRIDAY EVENING!!
I think it will be fun to see every ones pets, so get snapping!
Love and hugs to all
