Birthday Fairy

I've had such a nice weekend.  Yesterday was a bit dull weather-wise, so I stamped out loads of images, and spent a happy couple of hours (in between the housework) colouring them all in.  Also went back to the vets for Arnie's blood test results, and they confirmed he's got a overactive thyroid and we need to get his heart rate down (it is over 200 and should be about 100 beats per minute) and his thyroid levels were over 300 and should be about 50.  Picked him up the tablets, and then nipped in Tesco for some economy cheese to squish the tablets into to encourage him to eat them.  Need not have worried as he's wolfed them down inside a small square of cheese so fast that I don't think it touched the inside of his mouth before it was gulped down and he was begging for more.   Feel a bit better now that I know he's going to take his medication, even though we've got to get blood tests done every month which is going to become very expensive.  Good thing he's worth it!!!

Today was sunnier, but I had a really lazy morning in my PJ's watching some fab videos on colouring Hanlar images by Chrissy.  I don't think I ever stand a chance of getting that good, but I'm determined to try harder with my colouring in future.  I spent some time this afternoon in the garden, dug over a couple of the raised veg beds, raked in some home made compost, and planted some onion sets.  Had a quick look in the greenhouse and saw that none of the plants that I put in there last autumn have survived the frosts, so have chucked them out, and had a sweep up of all the bits that have fallen off my neighbour's trees into my garden. I couldn't see where the path ended because of all the bits, so it looks a bit neater now.  I'm a bit of a "neat freak" so I feel a bit better now!!!

Back to the cards, and I got this fab stamp as a candy from the uber talented Bev Rochester last week, and have been so excited to ink it up and colour her in.  So, here's another card that I've finished off today. I've got a feeling this image may be out to play again very soon !!!  The flowers are die cuts layered up and dotted with a liquid pearl dot. I've also added some purple liquid pearls in the corners, and made my own sentiment, altering the 'Mother's day' freebie from yesterday to say Happy Birthday instead.

I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting
