A Spoonful of Sugar

One more day till Friday thank goodness (who else wishes the weeks away??) I came home to bloodbath yesterday, my hubby rang me at lunch time (he was on back shift thank goodness) to say our Ebony was bleeding from her back end. I think I told my boss I was going home but I can't remember if I did or left it to his imagination as to where I was going, I was in such a state. I am terrified of pyometra in my girls and was imagining allsorts on the way home. Anyway it turned out to be an abscess that had burst, poor little babe was in agony (and bit the nice Mr Vet as a thank you for his trouble at trying to help – oops). She’s had a strong painkiller and antibiotic shot and is out for the count now so hopefully some of the pain has eased. Here’s my Ebs – ain’t she a little doll xx So sorry that I did not get round to visiting any blogs last night as I had planned to, hopefully will be able to do so tonight.47b4d834b3127cceb004a4e86ef40000001610

Okay, that’s enough excitement for the week thanks, on to my card now. I have been wanting to use this little sweetie for ages, she was the start of my love affair with Elisabeth Bell images and is still one of my favourite stamps (even though she's been neglected for months and months poor little thing).sn-mme-grey1

I have used this weeks Spoonful of Sugar sketch - another that will be filed in my favourite sketches to be used again and again. I have had to leave the 3rd flower off though as there was not enough room on the card, especially with the busy paper (still not put these away and my stocks are dwindling very fast - I need a restock I think). I was going to stitch around the card but decided to do some paper pricking instead (divvie here didn't work out I could have done this so much quicker by removing the thread from the sewing machine and running the card through - rolls eyes again!!)

The inside is very plain again but thought I would photograph it anyway.

  24. Great card Bev, but poor dog! I hope he's feeling much better now.

    But... talking of pyometra...
    Last year on my birthday of all days, my lab/greyhound was diagnosed with pyometra after being poorly for about a day. Not insured!!
    Just 3 months later, our Golden Retriever also got it! I couldn't believe it! Not insured either... both ops total cost came to £1300!
    Then this year, the Golden Retriever had a breast lump removed. Animals, who'd have them?!

    Love Roz

  53. Bev gorgeous card. So glad that Ebony is ok. It is so scary when something happens to your dogs, as you don't know what is wrong and they can't tell you. Now when I take my border terrier to the vets I have to pull him in (thank god for slippy tiled floors), as he hates going now.

    I'm glad everything is allright again with Ebony.I can believe you were a mess when you heard she was bleeding at the back. My Charlie had it too once , but after surgery he was fine again.
    So nice you have a whole gang of cavalierkingcharles doggies, i have only two, maybe you can spare a couple??? ;-)

  74. How cute your dog is, super sweet! It's so hard when your pets are sick or injured, and not strange at all that they don't like the vets since they are only there when they are ill.

    Your card is absolutely gorgeous! That image is oh so sweet and adorable. Love the papers and decorations too.

  86. Oh Bev! I understand exactly how you must of felt. I would of been beside my self if I would of got a call like that about my Zoe. I had to put my little boy dachshund asleep in March and I still can't get over it! (He was almost 16)When you are an animal lover your pups are like your babies. I am so glad your little girl is better. She is adorable! I don't blame her bitting her Doc! There's just some places a Doc should not go!LOL!
    On onto that gorgeous card. After following your blog for while now I don't think I have ever seen a card that was even slightly ugly! Everything you touch turns to gold! Your coloring is always amazing!(I study every detail!LOL!) Thanks for the inspiration.
