Spring Air


We had to do an emergency visit to the vets on Friday, as Whisper has managed to take some of the skin of off 1 of her pads, so vet has given us some anitibiotics and told us to give her easy walks for a week or two - so at the moment i have a 3 legged dog - until she sees a crow in the field, then she sets off like a greyhound and comes back limping !!!

I'm absolutely shattered today, but i'm grabbing 5 mins of me time to upload my card that i made yesterday, but couldn't photograph till this morning !!! OH got a corporate invite to go to Twickenham to see England v Scotland at rugby and i couldn't really say No, as he lets me go cardmaking whenever i want to !!!, so son and i left home went to an activity farm, then lunch in a pub and then a mini steam train at a garden centre, and now we have just walked Whisper round the field !!!

As there are quite a few 'Green' challenges around at the moment i thought i would participate in them and also i must admit, use up some scraps of paper that were left over from a card i made at The Glitter Pot about 6 weeks ago - gee it's amazing what you can make with not alot - i must admit though the card is only about 4.5 inches square, so alot smaller than i would normally make, but then the image is very small too - it is actually a wooden stamp!!, but you'd swear it was off of a transparent set, it's that small !!!

Hi Sam

Who would have thought that using the same colour throughout would have produced such a brilliant card.

Love it!!

I hope that Whisper is improving. Keeping a dog still must be like kicking jelly up hill!!

Oh, that is one sweet card! Love the mix of patterned papers you chose. And best wishes for a speedy recovery to Whisper - I can sympathize with how hard it is to keep a dog quiet.
