Hic !!!!

By far the very BEST thing about drinking just a little too much brandy is the warm toe effect. How much have I drunk? Em, let's just say I have exTREMEly warm toes.

:)

Hehehe....

well as I'm sitting here...er, sloping here... I thought I'd FINALLY load up pictures of some cards I produced in the summer. I was so busy I never got around to doing this...sorry!

Here is the card I made for Luvbug this year. His birthday was months ago but he still has this card on display!!!



Here is one I made for Jo, my friend from school. I love this stamped image; two wee girls killing time together, just like we used to!

Lastly, Luvbug's sister had a big birthday this year ( I shan't say how big) and this is the card we sent. Luvbug isn't a fan of decoupage. I find it soooo relaxing to do though, and so long as you fancy it up a wee bit it can still be artistic, IMHO. I did a crohet border on this one, which took a TINY crochet needle, so thin you could use it as a bookmark!!! Boy, I must have been feeling extra patient!:

Ah well Scooter has woken up for his midnight (ish) snack. I think I'll give him some of the pork we had left over from Sunday lunch. HE LOVES pork. But have you ever seen it as a flavour of cat food? -Never! This is quite worrying- first, it means they aren't providing a flavour that cats apparently love, and second, it may mean that the reason is cos they use EVERY part of the porker for US! Now THERE'S a sobering thought if ever I needed one!

Hope you don't have a hangover this morning!

They say that the only part of a pig you can't use is the squeal - so maybe we DO eat most of it and there's nothing left for petfood.

Oh Helena - hope the head's fine this morning?! A little bit of what you fancy does you good they say - super cards too and you can't have been all that bad as you uploaded and posted this fine! Big hugs, Di xx

You make such incredibly lovely and arty cards, Helena! I love looking at all of them!

As to Scooter and pork.. if you think about it, you are giving him a comfort food he gets from no one else, so that makes you like the Mama Cat of all mama cats! :)

Hugs and warm thoughts.

Your cards are so lovely. I wish I had a fraction of your talent! I'm really glad you enjoyed that brandy ;)

I'm delighted you want me on your card list. I'll e-mail my address right away. Just make sure you don't overdo things.

Miss Peach is looking out for all of us that she loved while on earth...it is so good to know that isn't it....she was such a grand wee ginger girl and we miss her so much. I want you to be the second purrrrrson to know that Peachy is sending us a Christmas kitty!!! Peachy is playing Santa cat this year and has asked her former foster mommy to part with one of her champion kitties to fill Lapdaddy's empty lap. shhhh don't tell anyone yet...
I am a nervious wreck thinking about being a new kitty mommy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love to you and Scooter and Luvbug!
