An Update & Some Birthday Cards

Hi folks! sorry i have not been in blogland for a while but have been having some bad days lately with my Rheumatoid. I ended up going to the hospital on Thursday for steroid injections which have helped a lot but unfortunately they are quite short lived so will be making the most of it!!!. Back to the Rheumatologist on 22nd so will find out about a new drug trial which i was informed about on Thursday.

Anyway enough about my ailment crap!!! back to cards. It was the hubsters birthday yesterday and as his love for cats is as big as mine i knew i had to get my new Magenta cat stamps to work (i have been itching to use them on that spesh card);

They totally look like my little furbabies Bert & Simone which was my ultimate reason for buying them, he he!!

The pp i have used is by Clare Curd for Papermania, Prima flowers, brown organza ribbon (to blend in with brown fur!), bling and cannot remember who the sentiment is by.

Just another quicky card with a Penny Black image i was sent. I delved into a colour i wouldn't normaly use, a splash of red. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone of colours, the next maybe orange!!!

Just a quick hedgie update, i had the dreaded job of cleaning out the hedgehog cabins last week. Eeeww it was gross, good job i love them!!! the cabins were empty so took the decision to have a clean up. Unfortunately since i have done this they have vacated during the daylight hours. They go in there during the night though so atleast they have a resting spot. I wanted them clean in the hope that any pregnant Mum's would be comfy to have her hoglets, i still live in hope!!!
Over the past week i have witnessed a hedgie throwing up, sneezing & hobbling!!! on Saturday night one even looked right up at me behind the conservatory door & put his/her front paws on the door ledge. I gently opened the door and i was able to pet the hedgie for about 5 minutes. This is the type of reward i live for. It is as if they are thanking me for looking after them.

Have a great day everyone.

Big hugs Clare xxx
