Follow your dreams...

Hello all - I hope that your week has been going well?  I've had a mixed week really - it's been lovely having our daughter home for a few days, so plenty of girly chat, lunch out, etc.  But I've also had a rather poorly Grumpy Poppy the Cat to deal with.  She was diagnosed with kidney disease over 2 years ago, and has stayed pretty stable on medication. But she seems to have suffered something of a rapid downturn this week, hasn't been eating or drinking and has had a couple of visits to the vet. I'm not sure how much more they can do, but she may well pick up a bit again. I just wish I could get some food into her - but she's always been a stubborn madam!  Thankfully she doesn't seem to be in any pain, and I'm hoping that she'll improve a bit. We've to take her back to the vets again shortly - at the moment she's laid out in some sunshine in the garden so I'll have to sneak up on her with the cat basket and prepare to do battle!

Sadly my daughter has headed back down south on the train, so as a consolation I've been playing with my craft stuff and got a new card to share

I've used a gorgeous digi stamp from Mo Manning, coloured with copics
The backing papers and sentiment stamp are from LOTV, with some added stitching. I've also added a Memory Box tree die cut and the Doo Hickey fence die cut. 

I quite like the soft colours on this - but it's hard to go wrong with the cute images. 

The card will be going on sale in my Etsy shop.

I'm hoping for some 'blog time' over the weekend to catch up with what everyone is up to.
You may also have noticed the link on the sidebar - I've joined the world of Twitter (assisted by my daughter lol!) and I'd love to know if any of you are also on twitter. Please let me know and I can 'follow' you! 

Back soon,
Kim x
