Well another day has nearly gone! I am sure when I was younger the days didn't go so quick.  All I seem to have done today is get up get showered and dressed, walk the dogs and do lunch.  I am having 5mins to write this then I have to go get Tiger ( girls cat) and take her to the vets - nothing wrong with her just needs her booster jab. Could leave it to next week but girls like to take her which means a late appointment, this way she done.
I said yesterday I would show the girl card that I also made for my box, so here it is.

Sorry not the best of photographs,  but you can keep taking different shots and none are any good. The image is from a pad of Lily of the Valley that Patricia and I have shared, a SB die , and embossing folder both borrowed from Patricia.  Kept it simple so the image is the focal point.

I have noticed that I have a new follower Suzie of Suzies Card Den. Welcome to my little corner of blog land .   Also thank once again to all your lovely comments.  

Well I'd better make a move and go get this cat to the vet, she won't like me after this that's for sure, then again does it matter she has to have her booster. ( she is a stable cat ) I feel sorry that she lives in the tack room but she is there to keep the mice at bay, saying that she is well looked after and well cared for.
Sky getting dark again looks like we are in for a down pour, keep safe and dry.

  1. Hi again Hazel,
    My first reaction. Was "awwwww". Its sooooo pretty, just right for a new little girlie.
    Thanks for the folding tip with the tissue.
    Poor Tiger. My Sam used to be the sweetest cat in the world till you took her to the vet, then she morphed into a vision of wide eyes, fur on end and a flurry of claws!
    Best of luck with that!
    Take care.

  5. Gorgeous card yet again - you are a natural xx hopefully Tiger is now safely 'boosted' xx the only way we can get our very placid cat in the cage to transport him is to put on the side and lift into it - otherwise he turns into a starfish and I cannot get him in either head first or bum first xx all good fun xx enjoy your last few days of respite xx GailT xx

  18. HI Hazel - thanks for the lovely welcome and I love your beautiful card, just perfect for a new baby. Hope your cat was ok, you obviously look after her well and I guess she is used to being in the stable, a bit like my cat who prefers to live out doors most of the time.
