spots before the eyes...


Good morning everyone ok everybody prepare to faint, theres not a button in sight today lol...there is a lot of dots though and a huge amount of glitter glue...I'm sitting here covered in cats hairs, they are getting everywhere and I don't know if its just because I'm not used to them but they are making me itchy as hell and I'm forever itching my nose...the cat has a very strange habit...she loves sitting on the deck watching the birds, shes no danger to them shes too big to jump or run fast enough to get them, but she loves watching them but while shes doing in her jaw judders really fast...its like she has a spasm in her jaw and there's no sound either...so strange and so hilarious to watch...even the birds were looking at her as if something was wrong with her...its so funny lol, I heard from our Daughter and her other half yesterday afternoon to say they had landed and everything was great and the weather was very warm, the lucky things and good girl for stopping her Mum worrying, even though shes almost 29 it doesn't stop me fretting. well its in a Mum's job description isn't it...right now onto my card for today which is using a favourite stamp of mine...this is of course a Sugar Nellie stamp from Diane Duda, shes called Believe, I think one of the reason I like this stamp is that she can be used for any occasion at all...this time I used her for a monochrome card with lots of glitter...I coloured her very softly with my distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Glitz 6x6" Paper Pack - Colour Me Happy pad, I struggle wondering what to do with wood papers don't you and they are perfect for this monochrome look don't you think...I added a chocolate brown ribbon and bow and a couple of wooden hearts covered with Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust, the pad and stickles are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the lush sketch is from the Sketch Saturday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Ribbon Girl Make it Sparkly Challenge too...I think I'm going to have a bit of a crafting day today and if I can drag the cat away from juddering at the birds she can keep me company in my craft room...hair and all...whatever your up to today I hope its fluff free and whatever your up to you have a giggle and a good time too
