Morning sweet peeps and I hope that all is well with you today.
It’s another lovely day here in Chester – not sure how long this is going to last though!!
I’ve got a card to share today that I actually made for this month’s Lovely Lili Challenge over at The Ribbon Girl Blog.
BUT I forgot to post it over to Mary in the week before our 10th birthday celebrations – doh!!
But it’s on here now and …..
… here it is.
I used one of our older fairies (oldie but still a goodie) and this one is Cake Glorious Cake.
I love the fact that she comes with her very own sentiment : )
I coloured her with Copics and I’ve lost the list but I THINK these are what I used -
Skin - E000, E00, E11, E13, R00, R02
Hair - E30, E31, E33, E35, E39, E50
The rest - E0000, E30, E43, E47. E49, E50, RV0000, RV00, RV01, RV10, RV34, RV69
The papers are from the Always & Forever 8x8 paper pad .
And there’s a cheeky Cheery Lynn Francesca Border die in there as well.
Some beautimous blooms from The Ribbon Girl
I also made a flower from a bit of felt and added some branches punched with a MS Branch Punch
I added some 6mm Pearl White Flat Backs as the challenge was to add pearls.
So that’s the old card.
I hope you don't think I’m a right old curtain twitcher but something unusual happened here earlier today.
My office at home is upstairs and I look out onto a lane which runs alongside some fields – I cant really help looking out there. The lane also leads to a local cattery and this morning I did notice a red car pull up to where it’s signposted for the cattery but thought no more of it as people use it to turn around quite often.
I wish I had have taken notice now though.
Some time later, another car pulled up and I looked out because I heard a dog barking. It was a couple and they seemed to be very interested in something on the floor. It all looked a bit odd and the next thing, the woman picked up a cat carrier and was walking back to her car, followed by the man who was carrying another cat carrier. Next thing, the lid opened – it was obviously not closed properly, and out flew the most gorgeous cat. It ran in a blind panic across the road and into the wood next to our house. The couple then got into the car with the other carrier and drove up the lane – presumably to the cattery.
They left soon after and I rang the cattery – I know them in there - to tell them that there was a cat in the wood. They told me that it was one of 3 cats that had just been abandoned in the cat carriers at the end of the lane. Well words just failed me to be honest. Who in their right mind would do that in this heat? One of the carriers was still there and was empty and I’m guessing that the couple who saw them put 2 cats together in another of the carriers. The carrier that was left had food in it but no water, and it seems that the 2 that were safe had been well cared for and very friendly - the girls in the cattery told me that. Whoever left them clearly took care to leave them where they surely would be found but the fact remains that there is one cat out there who is probably terrified and alone.
I cannot bear people who just dump their pets like they are rubbish when they have had enough of them but there is something about this that makes me think that isn't strictly the case here. We have scoured the wood but cannot see the cat, so it is possibly hiding or has completely ran off. I hope we manage to find it before it gets hurt or worse.
So on that rather worrying note, I’m off to the post office (random I know lol).
I’ll see you tomoz but till then, enjoy the sun and huggiest of hugs to all xx.
