Good morning peeps, and a huge hello to my FOUR new followers, thank you so much for dropping by, I do hope you are all well, or at least getting there!  I haven't forgotten about my '100 followers blog candy' but I've had a couple of trials and tribulations with my back this week although I am not complaining 'cos I am still here ... and with Blossom to keep me company!

Graham is out at work this week (well four days to be precise - and that is per month!!!) so I am keeping Blossom on the straight and narrow.  She has had her op and, following a check up on Sunday, she is fine (no longer constipated - thought I ought to let you know Sue J!!).  She doesn't have to go back until next Saturday for stitch removal - can't wait to be honest, the vocals from her in the car are to die for .... not!  She was feeling very sorry for herself on Saturday and I said "Cheer up, 'cos you can go out and have safe sex now Bloss"  She looked at me as if to say "Do you think I still have the inclination after all that?"   Sorry sweetie, that was the idea.  Oooh cruel mummy!  LOL.

Anyway enough of the lurid sex life of my little fur baby - this is a card for a special blog friend because it is her birthday today - Happy Birthday Christine (Harrop).  I hope you have a lovely day and manage to do something really special.

I do like LOTV digis and this was in the Fairies Black and White Sketch Pad No. 6.  I know that Christine likes these colours (just like moi) so the choice of papers was so easy.
'Cos this is a special card for a special friend, I decorated the inside as well - yay!  I used one of my new Spellbinders Die D'Lites for the flower, it reminds me of an Osteospermum, some of them have little 'spoon' shaped petals and are beautiful.

I am just hoping that this card pops up on my blog when the Postman has been, this is why I am scheduling it for after lunch.
Hope you like it, thank you so much for visiting me and for leaving any comments (if you have had the time).  I really do appreciate reading every one, even the maestro pops in to check them out.  Bless him.
Oh and I do hope I haven't offended anyone with my lurid stories of Blossom's past life, when she was a sex goddess.
Thought you might like to see a picture of her and her husband Donny (aka Don Juan) he really is a lovely soul but much more frightened of humans than his wife!!  Just look at Blossom's face - pure lust!  Now look at Donny's face - he looks as if he is thinking "Oh not again!!!"
Big hugs to you all and good luck to you if you have entered any challenges recently!

  3. Hi Sue,
    me wonderful blogging mate.
    Now you are so gifted with words, even if it's the sex stories of your blossom. Mind you what male cat could resist a lovely looking feline like she is.
    I loved your bit about his thoughts, and his name is so appropriate too. Maybe he is Rudolf Valentino reincarnated into an animal. lol.
    Love your card fabulous image and colouring in too. That flower die looks great. You should try that flower I made last time with that lovely die. That's if you haven't thought of it yourself.
    Super photography Graham.
    Give Blossom and Pidgy my biggest hugs for me.

  14. This is such a beautiful card for Christine, and I'm sure she was delighted to have such a special handmade card just for her birthday. Lovely colors & great image too. Loved all the dies you used to make it so beautiful. Laughed at the adventures of your kitty as well. How responsible of you even if you've feeling mean, to handle the birth control issue!

I'm looking forward to meeting new friends, enjoying inspiration from some extremely skillful card makers & just sharing in the fun.
