SUNSHINE AT LAST!!!!

Hello!!!! wow what a gorgeous weekend it has been. So lovely to have sunshine. The garden is looking amazing. My mate Steve came over and mowed the lawn and did loads of tidying up. I got out there and did some weeding (my body is sure telling me about now!!!). I just love it when the garden looks all nice and neat. I need to just go tidy up around hedgie villa's!!! fresh straw and have a clean out of their cabins as there is no one in there at the moment (mind you that can change on a daily basis). As we have had so much rain everything is soggy around there including the straw which really needs replacing. A job for this week I believe.

Ok, yesterday was a total disaster as we got to the Cats Protection and the open day was last Sunday!!! the ad that we saw a couple of weeks ago was wrong. I now have an up to date list of their future events and all is in my calendar now. Felt like a right plumb turning up on the wrong day!!!. We gave a good donation and took all of the gear I had sorted out for them, including the kittie toys, beds and rascal tunnel we collected. We went and visited the cats and kittens that are waiting to be rehomed and of course I just wanted to take them all home. I get so heartbroken seeing them and I am so baffled how people can abandon, abuse and neglect these beautiful and loyal creatures. I will never understand that for as long as I live. Thank heaven's for places like CP, RSPCA, Blue Cross, Battersea......etc.

Anyway on to one of my cards I have recently made. I got a crafty mag and they had some gorgeous Nit Wit paper's in there which I really love so have been using it on some of my cards.




















I have used one of my favourite House Mouse stamps (coloured with Promarker's), Wild Orchid flower's, East of India ribbon & a pebble's rub on. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

CRAFTY CATZ - Happy Birthday
CES CHALLENGES - Anything Goes

Ok my lovelies will be back with another card tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!!.

Big hugs Clare xxx

  1. Hi Clare I am so with you on the abandonment of any pet, I have never visited a re-homing centre because I know how heartbroken I would be at not being able to take every single animal home with me. I have never understood how anyone could be unkind to any animal. Anyway onto your card which is fantastic, the papers and design along with the image are beautiful.
    Hugs
