The image is called Christina and is by Delicious Doodles on the Stitchy Bears Digi Outlet.
I decided to make this into an easel card and I thought the embossed white paper, despite being flowery, looked quite like snowflakes. I used a 7" x 7" square card and made it into a round card using my Grand Circle Spellbinder die. The circle where 'Christina' is placed is a Grand Decorative Circle. I do love this decorative die! I matted a piece of the embossed card on the top and then glued some gorgeous holographic fibre around the edge. You will have to take my word for it that it is holographic because it just wouldn't show up on the pic. The trim around her red top is covered in Polar White Flowersoft - something else I found in the cupboard!

Anyway I did
warn promise you an update on Blossom's progress. Well, she went to the V-E-T's on Tuesday for her second injection so at least that is now done with until next year. She complains louder than any other cat we have had and we have certainly had some vocal fluffies! Our vet is Portuguese and is wonderful - we were discussing about whether or not she had been spayed, of course you can 't tell unless you can see a scar under her fur!!! Have you ever tried - I have and have the claw marks to prove it. Anyway I said we would watch to see if there were any signs that she was coming into season and we would then make an appointment. We couldn't make an appointment for 7 days anyway because of the injection she had just had. Something to do with building up immunity etc etc.
I am sure you have all heard of Murphy's/Sod's Law and this happens to us in spades - I tell you no lies!!! Wednesday evening she started behaving really oddly, Graham was with her out on the patio and she was crawling towards Donny (aka Don Juan) with her lady bits in the air (hence the new name of Dirty Gertie, Sue J) she was also singing to him - she has a wonderful voice, a bit like Tiny Tim on acid (do you remember Tiptoe through the tulips??). Anyway hubby managed to capture her and brought her in - she wasn't pleased at all! I had already asked the V-E-T what would happen if she had any carnal knowledge with Donny and he said not to worry because she could still have the operation. Anyway she has been out since and even went to wake him up, boy she is a lusty little Dirty Gertie! Naturally he was chuffed to bits and his little eyes lit up, I really thought he would pop in afterwards to ask if we had any ciggies for him to have a smoke - LOL!!! (We don't smoke!!)
At least she has an appointment for next Friday now, so we will have an eventful few days methinks. It's a little odd that she hasn't been pregnant before though! I forgot to tell you that Donny lives in the garden as well, he joined us in March with Blossom but doesn't appear as vulnerable - once Blossom is sorted out he may have to move in, providing he is happy to be neutered !!! Ooooooeeer! Then again he might move on if the love of his life has a permanent headache!
Roll on next Friday!
Thank you so much for checking out my blog and if you have managed to get through the above without nodding of, I am in awe of you!

Big hugs to you all from me and Dirty Gertie (aka Blossom)
