First things first. Does anyone want a cat or a dog - or both? I've a stroppy cat that's decided she doesn't like the new covers on the sofa and wants us to move them all the time (although why she thinks she should automatically sit on there is another question) and wakes me up at 4am because she thinks she'll go out (although not allowed out at night) and then does something unspeakable upstairs when I refuse. And a dopey dog who keeps trying to eat grotty bits from under the bird table - can someone explain why I buy (expensive) "holistic dog food with the perfect balance of proteins, vitamins and minerals to keep your dog healthy" when she eats rubbish and drinks water from the pond.....! Not to mention the 'help' in the garden when we're trying to do things - she nearly got bits amputated yesterday when her dad was wielding a saw! Sorry, rant over. Although I did have a huff yesterday at one point and ask why the god of pet rehoming looked down and said "Ooh look, there's a gullible looking woman, we'll land her with these two gormless specimens....". Sigh.
And thank you for all your kind wishes re health! A quick update is that I saw the surgeon on Thursday and although there is a cyst he said they prefer not to operate except as a last resort, so further unpleasant treatment from the dentist is due but at least it's better than surgery (I think!). Things seem to have settled a little at the moment, so just keeping my fingers crossed!
So, apologies for yet another long-winded post, and if you've stuck with it this far, there is actually a card to show you! I was asked to make a silver wedding anniversary card so came up with this
I decided to go for a WOW (well, actually it's more an ivory on ivory!) using Centura pearl card as it's got a lovely sheen mounted onto silver mirri card. The base is embossed using Cuttlebug 'divine swirls'. The centre panel is using Spellbinders 'lattice motifs', with the sentiment printed on the computer.
The flowers are Doo Hickey 'doily flowers' with pearl centres
I've added a Memory Box 'precious heart' and some ribbon from stash.
Hope you like it!
So, apologies again for the rather long post - and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
Paper Creators Crafts - dies/punches
Brown Sugar - anything goes
Crafting by design - anything goes + ribbon/lace
Divas by Design - 3 or more layers
