Ruby is doing really well...with the stitches out and her fur growing back she's starting to look more like herself gorgeous self :-D But I had her back at the vet as it looks like she might have 'womans' problems!!! She's 6 which makes her 42 in human years and isn't that when everything starts to go wrong for us lol. I have to get a urine sample and take it in to get processed...it could either be a urine infection or incontinence!!! Luckily tablets will sort both but if it's the latter she could be on them for a short time and the problem sorted or (and the most likely as we're talking Ruby here lol) she'll be on them for life!!
It was pensioner night Thursday...I picked Sadie up and we headed to Costco, Tesco (12 cans of Tesco own tomato soup, 6 cans of marrowfat peas, 2 cans of mushy peas and 2 packs of paracetamol = £3.56!!) then onto Rosso for a coffee. We just arrived in Bothwell when I got a call from Nic. This is how the conversation went....
me: Hey Nic what's up?...Nic: Hey maw, where are you? ... me: With Sadie, what's up? Nic: (sounding a bit upset) Are you on your way home? me: No we're just going for a coffee Nic: (still sounding upset) will you be long? me: (my stomach started to churn at this point) what's wrong, are you ok? (the last time I got a call like this she had broken down in her car on a pitch black road) Nic: (sounding tearful and slightly wailing) I'm going to London tomorrow and I can't decide what to wear...can you come over?!!!
ROFL...I was relieved it wasn't anything serious but honest to goodness I wasn't expecting that from my 27 year old daughter!
When I was making samples for last weekend I noticed I didn't have many of Robyn trimming the Christmas tree so at 9pm on the Friday night I started making a card. I knew what I wanted to make and luckily, apart from one thing, it turned out more or less as planned...
I thought Tree Trimming Robyn was perfect for one of these shadow box cards (can you see where I went wrong??!!) I stamped Robyn and coloured her in with my Copics, glittered, GA'd and dotted her up. I found some gorgeous embossed vellum and stitched it to a piece of pink cs then I cut a window out of this and the front of the card with my Nestie's then cut thin strips of cs to make 'window panes' and a piece of acetate for glass and stuck them to the inside front of the card. I used my snot gun to stick the image to the back of the cs and assembled the shadow box (have you worked out yet where I went wrong?) I trimmed the window with a scallop square with the middle cut out with a smaller square Nestie. My new snowflake dies were put through the Cuttlebug with white felt and adhered to the front with light rose Swarovski Crystals GA'd to the centres. Finally I added a sentiment to finish it off
I mentioned on Thursday I might have something to tell you...well here's a little teaser!!!
