Good morning everyone mid week already! Thought I would share a bright card today to cheer us up now we are approaching the end of January:
I have used a Bildmalarna stamp I think she is going to cheer someone up with that big bouquet of flowers! She has been coloured with Copics and a bit of Stickles added to the trim on her dress and leggings. The papers are First Edition from the Hideaway Collection. I followed the sketch over on Papertake Weekly - a brilliant sketch thank you! The border die is a new Cheery Lynn one on its first outing, I don't think it will be its last either. The sentiments are from Lili of the Valley and I have tied them on with some crochet cotton. I used Spellbinders to cut and mat the image and distressed the Decorative Labels 8 die with some Shabby Shutters DI. The doily is French Pastry Doily die by Cheery Lynn - my favourite doily. The ribbon came from Kath I was lucky enough to win some of her recent candy - thank you. The heart button is from my stash I have tied some more crochet cotton onto it. The butterfly is two new Memory Box dies.

I know I have mentioned it before but we have three cats - Cleo (17), Harry (10) and Louis (about 8). We have had problems with Harry for the last few months his teeth were bothering him and he was over grooming (pulling his hair out). Well we finally seem to have got him back on track his coat is now lovely and thick again and he is managing to eat without having to have his teeth removed! Cleo then became unwell and she was at the Vets last week and she has renal failure and the vet told us that she only had about two weeks. She is still going strong and really enjoying her new food the vet started her on. Now Louis has become ill!! We noticed he was a quieter than normal a few weeks ago and then last week he went off his food. He is a gorgeous cat, he was a rescue cat and a giant of a cat but the most gentle and softest cat you could ever meet. He was at the vet yesterday and had some blood tests done. His heart rate is very rapid and she thinks it may be thyroid problems. I am hoping it is so that it can easily be sorted with some medication as I hate seeing him so quiet - fingers crossed, we will find out today.
Thanks for visiting me today I really appreciate it! See you tomorrow, take care xx
