Long - Stem Cuties

Well it was another rush to the vets for poor Whisper this morning - this time she has been nibbling her bottom and when OH looked at it, it was red and inflamed, then this morning she wasn't eating her food and her ears and face were hot - she had blocked glands, so once the vet had cleared her out and gave her some anti-biotics she is well on the road to recovery, yipee.
This is my lasting posting for a while, as i'm having some internet issues, hopefully they will be fixed soon.

The image i've used today is one i've had for about a year and have never been brave enough before today to colour it in - probably because i use Twinkling H20's and not something like pro-markers, where you can blend easier.

Right onto todays Card and Challenges :

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where Challenge No: 148 is 'Happy Ever After'

The Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 131 is 'Pink, Cream and Brown'

Craft Your Passion - where Challenge No: 55 is 'Show Us Your Layers'

The Crazy Challenge  - where Challenge No: 64 is 'Use 3 Different Papers'

Sketch and Stash - where they are up to Challenge No: 60 which is pick your own sketch, so i went for Sketch No: 10

Image - Penny Black - 'Long - Stem Cuties'
Papers - Basic Grey - 'Bittersweet'
Punched Edge - MS - 'Valentine Lace'
Sentiment - Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases'
Ribbon - Stampin Up

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
