Thank you for all your kinds words, so i thought i would just to let you all know, my RA is a lot better now, that i'm out walking Clio everyday. Today is the 18th and that means mid month, over at Penny Black And More and our challenge this month is 'Warm Autumn Colours' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Whilst looking through my list of Penny Black stamps - i came across this cutie and it fits so perfectly at the moment, as our lovely Clio - has a couple of 'Oops'!! 
a) took her to vets to get checked out, receptionists thought she was adorable, gave her treats and strokes and she thanked them, by pooping on their floor !! - how embarrassed was I !! (i did pick it up, but they had to wipe the floor)
b) ate my glasses - and will be picking my new ones up today
The stamp is : Penny Black - 'Oops!! / 1695H / 2000', the papers are : Basic Grey - 'Pyrus', the sentiment is : Stampin' Up - 'Circle Of Friendship', the brads are : Basic Grey - 'Archaic', i've used my fabby : Die-namics - 'Fishtail Banners'

Absolutely adorable card, and a lovely story to go with it! Thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations.


Sue said...

Sweet card, love the layers and paper mix too.
Vets are soooo used to that! Probably got nervous, as for the glasses, we decided on a puppy after our 13 1/2 year old dog passed, and I am telling you she has chewed and eaten everything. She is three now and getting better, but paper of any kind is gone in a minute!! Hang in there, walks are good, expends some of that energy!!

Glad your RA has settled down. Sounds like Clio is going to provide lots of doggy tales! Love the card, when I had a dog he would sit and stare at things too - bit unnerving!
