Crafty Friends DT card - still a few days to enter

Good afternoon!

Scrappycat is at home, in her big dog crate, and doing well. She's eating and drinking and she seems to not be in too much pain (probably due to her powerful painkillers - she seems to like me a lot more than usual too LOL! I think she's a little "out of it") so I'm OK. She meows a lot in the night and her cage is in the bedroom, so that's a challenge, but it's not for long. Her stitches will be coming out next Thursday/Friday. 

I made a second card for the Crafty Friends Challenge Blog's current colour challenge of Pink White and Green. We have three fab sponsors, SheepSki DesignsStar Stampz and Bugaboo Stamps


I used another SheepSki image for this card too - they're just too cute! Andrea is a great artist, her images are gorgeous :) This image is Flump n Tic.

Ingredients
Image - Flump n Tic from SheepSki Designs
Nitwits papers
MS doily border punch
Pearl trim from Live and Love Crafts
Charm from Ribbon Girl
Ribbon and Diamante embellishment from stash
Coloured with Copics

Crafty Friends DT Card - Colour Challenge

Evening all

I'm SO late posting this. Life is hectic and so not fun at the moment. Like...this year has just been pants so far! Every week there seems to be some new disaster and I am stressed beyond belief ha! I've seen the vet SO many times this year, and the Emergency Department at the hospital more times than I would ever want to. I really wanted to start afresh at the turn of the half-year, but it only took three days in for life to hurl the next box of lemons at me.  Guess I'll just have to start afresh next January ha. Or, college "new year" is September, so maybe September is a good place for a fresh start?! I just got my beautiful Scraps back from the vet, she had a graphic injury that I'm not going to describe and was hospitalised for four days, she's doing well now but I'm heartbroken for her! And really not looking forward to having to administer her medicines for the next week, she's a very highly strung nervous cat so it's really not going to go well :(

Anyway, back to crafts! The latest challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog is a colour challenge:

Use 
Pink, White and Green

I love this colour combo! It's definitely one of my favourites, for girly cards anyway. We have three fantastic sponsors for this challenge:

For my card, I used this fantastic SheepSki Designs image called Humphrey (image no. 23).

And here's the full card I made using this adorable image! I made this as a Thank You card to give to our vet for taking such great care of our bunny Zorro :)

Flamingo :)

Good evening everyone

I hope you're all well! Life here is stressful at the moment, but I got my college results on Monday and I have a GPA of 89 right now, so I'm pretty happy with that at least :) 

When I saw Squirrel's Random Challenge had the theme of "wild things" I instantly thought of flamingos for some reason! I love flamingos :D Here's a pic of me last year in Orlando with some flamingos. Hottest day ever, about 11 am and I'd already sweated off all my makeup haha!

I searched for a good while to find a nice flamingo image that I was happy with - if anyone has any recommendations for flamingo images, send them my way ;) 

I went with this gorgeous chap from 2 Cute Ink
Ingredients
Nitwits Collections papers
LDRS Lovely View die
