Good morrow my blog friends and a hearty welcome to my new follower Nataliya - ooer sorry I have been reading too many novels set in this period!  Seriously though, thanks to all of my followers for your comments and good wishes on my blog.  One more follower and I will have reached 100 - whoopee!  I do feel so lucky, when I started out I never dreamed I would have ANY followers never mind 99!!!  Now Christine, Jenny and Sue J - are you all singing 99 Red Balloons with me - or should I say Neunundneunzig Luftballons!  Oh well 'nuff of that.  Do you remember last month when I was asked to make some cards for an ex-colleague's twins.  I posted the one for the Adam who is studying Mechanical Engineering and here is the one for Jemma who is studying Bio Chemistry.  I found this digi on the internet, it is by JadeDragonne of deviantArt.  She has some lovely artwork on there.  If I am honest, this is actually a young man but ... I put some make-up on his face and cut out another little 'skull' for the necklace to cover up the Adam's apple and he is now a she!  Think I got away with it meself.

Have you noticed the eight legged beastie web - I don't mind those as long as they are uninhabited!  I bought the die but decided against the 'other thing'!
I must admit to choosing my favourite colours for this one, I think they suit the theme though.  Graham hasn't been back to work yet (he does four days a month - lol) so I haven't had any feed back from the twins.  I know their dad liked them, so my fingers are crossed.

Before I wander off into the ether again I have a picture to show you of how I am struggling working with Blossom on the desk - sorry if it isn't up to the standard of the maestro but I took it on my phone and then passed it over!!!  That's as technical as I get!  She also likes to lie under the daylight lamp - hence the very bright light!  Don't tell me to switch it off 'cos I've tried and she just sits up  blocking the screen and stares at it until I do the necessary.
If you check out the laptop, you can see that I am trying to comment on Christine's blog!
I have to type like this all the time, trying to resist that gorgeous chin!  She's always stretching out her left paw as well so I have to do a 'high five' with her.  Yes I am potty - it is lovely on Planet Susie!
Well that's enough from me for now, thank you for stopping by and for putting up with my usual warbles.  I always enjoy your comments so if you have the time to leave one I do appreciate it.
Take care all of you and I'll see you again soon.
Hugs  SUE  xxx

  1. Hi Sue, what a fab card. Just perfect for the recipient, all the detail on the image is designed to make you smile.

    And I really smiled at this happy post from you today. Blossom sure knows where she's totally spoiled :) Maybe, just maybe, you can train her to hunt spiders? I still giggle about the one you found where a saddle wouldn't have looked out of place.

  24. Hi Sue,
    me wonderful blogging mate.
    Now I am singing at the top of my voice after your comment.
    You are a very clever crafty person to change the sex of your image. I would never in a million years thought of that gem of a idea. Love the colours and papers used in this superb creation. I bet she was sooooooooooooo! thrilled with it.
    Now I don't know how you can bring yourself to put one of those dreaded web up on your card. lol.
    I never do any gardening at this time of year due to the dreaded cob webs and those horrible little blitters lurking there waiting and ready to pounce. lol.
    Fabulous photography Graham, and not bad photography for you Sue. I could never manage with my screen that far away.
    Off to the hospital tomorrow for the info on what they can do for me. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    Have a wonderful day.
    Lots of love. Jenny L.
