Happy

And happy I am!  Our Maddi is slowly on the mend, still not eating very much (okay practically nothing!) but is so much brighter today.  The waggy tail is BACK!!  She goes for her last Alizin injection tomorrow and hopefully this treatment will allow the vet to delay the spay for a couple of months till she is well and stronger.  I LOVE my vet, sadly he retired on Friday (totally gutted – not so happy there!). 

The furniture arrived for my craft room yesterday and it was major activity down there (till one of the sliding door rails fell on Tony, split his head open and left him seeing stars, poor bloke didn’t now what had hit him).  He came over all faint when I said I thought it needed stitches, funny how he was fine till then lol.  Needless to say he won that battle and is walking round with a plaster on the side of his head (an inch to the left and he could have lost his eye!!).

And happy is also for my card, it’s another magazine one because yesterday was spent helping … ahem supervising …. in my new craft room and am I heading back down there shortly to carry on.  I may even get some stash shifted down there today whoop whoop!

It’s another of the cards I did for a Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.  I had to make a set of 5, one had to have a matching gift tag so I thought I would carry the pennant theme through on to the gift tag.  The stamp is Emma Swing from Lili of the Valley, the sentiment is also LOTV.  The paper is Echo Park Springtime from Dies to Die For.  The blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts were airbrushed to match the deep pink in the paper and buttons.  The pennants were just bits of paper that I chopped into triangles then matted on to pink card.  The letters are a Quickutz alphabet.

Right I am away to go and supervise (interfere lol).  Have a fabulous Sunday.

  16. Hi Bev
    love your card & gift bag. So pleased to hear that Maddi is improving, there's nothing worse than when pet's are ill as they are not able to tell you. Poor Tony, hope he is feeling better today.
    Soooooo pleased for you that your craft room is almost finished, and glad to hear that you are helping/supervising/interfering to make sure that it is done how you want it. Sadly mine is on hold (YET AGAIN), as my Hubby is helping not 1 BUT 2 friends to re-wire their house's. I have said that I would like to become his friend rather than his wife, because MAYBE then I would get my craft room finished. It didn't help when he then said to me, that I was already his best friend anyway as well as his wife. Oh well one day I'm sure (not) that it will get finished lol.

  37. Hiya Bev,

    How are you? Oh that is such good news that Maddi is feeling well enough to wag at you hee hee!

    Sorry your vet retired - you become so dependant on them and takes a while to trust them with your FUR Babies (Bet he is not sad he has retired, he be off to Alcapulco with the prices Vets charge eh?)

    Great you got your Craft room Furniture, can't wait to see it - it will be fab!

    Poor Tony - Blood, sweat and Tears to build the Craft Room is a very true statemnet this time eh?

    Really hope he is ok , but men can be silly at times - should have went to Hospital -

    BUt I am saying nothing - I will not go to Hospital either - so there you go hee hee!

    Drama and drama - you have lots this few weeks but when it all works out the drama is a distant and amusing blip!

    It will all come together and will be so worth it!

    Your card is just so amazing as always hunny - a delight to see your creations as always.

    Have a great week end!

    Take care
    Big Hugs

    I am so happy to hear Maddie is making a good recovery if a little slower which is better than not at all. I hope Tony's head is ok, men great big wimps when it comes to needles, mine would rather suffer to, than have a needle of any kind lol.
