I am of coarse, delighted and relieved to know that he's going to be okay. though he hasn't really been eating..I had to put the anti-arthritis medicine on his food . He doesn't like it. The vet said not to worry..cats like the liver flavor. Apparently, she doesn't know my cat.

This LO is based on a sketch from pencillines. The sketch was posted in Scrap Happy ( an online group)..and as I am part of the admin team I feel that it is my responsibility to participate often...even if the sketch is way out of my comfort zone ( as this one was). I am uncomfortable cutting my pictures this small. So many things can go wrong...Anyhow, dispite my feelings ( and the fact that it took me hours to finish), it turned out pretty well. Though looking at it now, I think that I should have used the moss green as the background cardstock color instead of the blue. I used the green to mount the pictures in. I should have reversed the the colors. Mounting the pictures in blue and using the green as the solid. The printed paper is double sided cardstock by Three Bugs In A Rug, cards stock is SU Bordering Blue and Moss Greeen, letters were cut out using my Cricut ( cart. Plantin Schoolbook) then they were colored with my copic markers in dk.blue and then stickled with the diamond glitter. There are blue and green buttons on the tree and some mini snow flakes and mittens as well.

I want to thank Julie for letting help with the weekly sketches in Scrap Happy ( an online group on Cafe Mom). I get to pick a sketch every Wednesday. Yesterday was my first day on the job so to speak. I chose a sketch from www.pagemaps.com in the half map section. I really liked the way this particular sketch looked. I am hoping to find a frame for it now that it's finished. I think the most difficult part for me was the layering of the flowers. I suck at it. I've seen flowers layered in many layouts and I love the look. Who knew I was going to have such a hard time with it? I don't know that I'm completely satisfied with the LO..I might add some white polka dots to the dark brown flowers. You'd think by now I would have learned to leave well enough alone...

After a really frustrating evening last night I decided I needed some craft therapy. I didn't really feel like doing a LO, as sometimes they take a long time to finish..and it really irritates me to leave something incomplete. It took me a while to find my acrylic block, but when I did I stamped another Tilda image from Magnolia Stamps. Here's the card I made with the image. I much happier with the end result of this one!

Well, this is the second time I've made this post. I must say that I'm getting tired of this. :) Anyhow, I when I checked my PO Box this morning this is what I found. I was super excited! I found them on line at www.ohmycrafts.com ( I love this store). They were on sale for $9.99 ( normal price is $29.99). What a deal! I bought 2...1 set for me and one set for my best buddy. Anyhow, I lied. It isn't either one of our birthdays...hers is in 5 weeks and mine is roughly 7 weeks..But seeing as I already told her what I got her I figured that I might as well post it. Her they are Kathryn. Happy Birthday. Thanks for being such a wonderful friend. It has been such a blessing knowing you.
This is my very first Tilda Card. My husband got me 6 Magnolia Stamps for Christmas. I am really embarrassed to admit that I thought I had to mount these on wood ( like with SU). Then I was reading up on it and found out that you can take the plastic off the back and stick it on acrylic blocks! How could I not know this? More importantly, I missed 2 weeks of playing with my stamps! The images were colored with the Copic markers that I got for Christmas. Patterned paper is from my scrap bin, card stock is SU.
