The digi Jenny (my Teamie) chose for us this week is from Hope Jacare at the Sitchy Bear Digi Outlet and it is called 'Vase of Lovely Flowers' somewhat self-explanatory methinks!! This is the second card I had made using this digi, the first one I just wasn't happy with so I made this one instead. However, I will re-do (if that is a word!!!) the first one and will post it later on. It could turn into a 'happy accident' eh!!!
I had some dark pink card which I wanted to use so I used everything to go with this colour! As you know, I am partial to a little bit of purple so I chose that as my secondary colour. Coo, I sound as if I know what I'm doing but I don't really! BTW those little butterflies were the waste from a Spellbinder die - I keep everything! - they were white but I dabbed a little of the Victorian Velvet DI on them and when they were dry, I added the Clear Wink of Stella. Sorry that it doesn't show up as much on the pics - the maestro did his absolute best!!

I love purple and this pink together - really yummy! I also managed to use some items that I had had for ages in my stash, ie ribbon, butterflies and the charm.
I mentioned yesterday that I would update you on Blossom's diet - we have always fed our cats the same ie same amount, same time of day etc but somehow Blossom just put on weight after her 'hysterectomy'!! We have halved her food and made sure she exercises (guffaws) every day but... we have found out that she pushes Donny (who is fed in his little shed) out of the way to lick up whatever he has left and then she takes a nap in 'said shed'! Basically she is her mother's furry daughter so we are having to make sure Donny leaves nothing in his dish for her to 'snack' on! We have to do something though, 'cos she is so round she is not 'washing' her bits and pieces - she can't reach them. I've told her that, as a teenager, she is far to old for her human mother to be doing this for her and it is sooooooooo unsavoury! Well, back to the drawing board, the next step is to give her even less food - well give it a try anyway. I'll let you know how she goes - Mrs Duck, do you think she is too laid back to bother about her middle??? Just a thought.
Hugs to you all and thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I've enjoyed the comments I've read on yesterday's card, thank you so much for them all. Take lots of care and enjoy the weather if it is sunny where you are.
