C & S 118

I haven't got around to making Christmas cards yet, but the Clean & Simple challenge has inspired me to at least make a start.

The sentiment stamp is by Stamp-It but I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know where I got the pine branch.

I'm behind with my posts and my cardmaking. Our little dog (Maltese cross rescue puppy) had his annual vaccination yesterday and has had a very bad reaction. He won't eat, drink or walk. The vet says we must just wait and see how he goes. If he isn't better by tomorrow, he'll have to go on a drip. I'm sure all dog owners will understand how worried we are.

I finished OSA Layout challenge 96. It's not as drab as it looks. The pale paper is all gold.

I also finished OSA layout 95 last week.

Our king parrots have been visiting a lot lately. I don't really approve of feeding wild animals, but these birds are very tame and very insistent. This is the male. I'm always surprised how little he weighs.

I haven't much time today so I've just had a very quick go at Clean & Simple FTL115. It hasn't got a purple border, I just put it on some purple paper to scan it.

OSA layout challenge 94

I can't believe such a simple card can take so much time and effort. I think I'm too fussy when it comes to straight lines and perfect squares or whatever. And I can never find exactly the right colour paper or inkpad to match what I'm doing. I keep reminding myself that the people who make Persian rugs never make a perfect rug. They always make sure they include a tiny flaw, because only God makes perfect things.
