Friday Feeling

Hello my lovelies, hope you are all keeping well and dry - l feel really sorry for all the people and animals living in the south of the country that are under water and taking a real bashing from the weather, there just does not seem to be an end in sight at the moment.  For those unaffected l hope you manage some crafty time this weekend.  I have an appointment with genetics in the morning (saturday) as there is a high risk of breast cancer so l am hoping for a bit of reassurance.

Anyhow - this is a card l made yesterday, l am not ashamed to tell you l stamped this up and went all cold and shaky - l have a fear of all things mice and tail, l love the House Mouse stamps don't get me wrong and think they are sweet but this one is quite large and when l stamped it all l saw was rat - l came around after a few hours and had a play and once l had chosen and laid out my papers and flowers it started to look ok.

Aaah bless you, thinking of you tomorrow.

Oooo what a super layout and i did have to laugh when you said you thought they might be 'Rats', as i so hate them :-), Luv Sam x

Your card is gorgeous Susan, you have coloured that cute image so beautifully (my hubby always calls them rats too), all your detailing is so pretty.
I hope your appointment goes okay tomorrow.
hugs Sue xx

First good luck with your Sat appt. I hope you can get some strong it's certainly scary to know this is in your heritage (ours is colon cancer). Your meecies are just too cute, but I understand your fear. (I wouldn't do a snake card...even a cutie one). Love your coloring as always, and the pretty dp. The lace doily, pretty heart punch borders and your lovely roses are just perfect trims for this sweet set of HM! TFS & hugs
