It’s a tad windy out………….

I’m late accessing my blog today what with one thing or another, but got here in the end.
Dennis is blowing away outside, but I don’t think he’s really got started yet. I do know that it has turned very cold and Hubby walked the dog before the rain was due to hit just after 1pm, which surprisingly it didn’t.
Maggie had a good night last night and seems over Thursday’s panic, though we are still treating the wound on her face which is taking a long time to heal.

So, what have I been up to today?
Apart from stabbing and slicing my finger, I’ve been making cards.
It all started after I checked my reserves box for something suitable to say Thank You to the vet for their attention to Maggie last week. Sadly I came up empty, so as we intended to have a quiet day and had no shopping or anything to do (read that as got no money at the moment), I thought I’d get the kit out.

It’s been an odds and sods day, putting together papers and trimmings, mainly butterflies, and you know how much I love butterflies on cards.
This is the ‘Thank You’ I did which shall be sent off tomorrow. As you can see, nothing overly fancy, but I was quite pleased with the result.
My problem is I have a lot of pretty papers, but nothing that goes with them and they don’t even go with each other! In trying to get my decoupage flowers out, they were so flimsy and the perforations so abysmal, I had to use a scalpel blade, and well, it slipped.
No blood on the cards thank goodness,Β  and it was certainly nothing like cutting my finger when we were on the boat, but it was annoying.
The butterflies were a better bet and I had some backing card which didn’t come into play as I’d hoped when I bought the pad five years ago, so this is what I did:
I did do a flowery one adding a blue flower at the top and some silver butterflies.
As usual though, there is always one I am especially pleased with.
Pictures taken with and without the flash.

I have a few spares in my box now, but will be on the lookout for things I can use with my existing bits.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
