Hearts and flowers birthday card

The stress of life continues as our little cat, Cobweb, has been suffering from seizures this weekend, which is really horrible to witness. Fortunately she doesn’t seem to know about them and is otherwise fine. Tests by the vet reveal no liver or kidney problems so all we can do now is observe and wait. She’s been clear for 24 hours now, which is the longest since Saturday, so fingers crossed.

I am struggling to find things to show you right now as my most recent projects have been sent out to people and the images lost in the Mac Crash of last week. Every time I switch on the computer I find something that needs recreating, or finding, or lost forever. Apparently we can try to have info retrieved from the fried hard drive but it will cost £360 and there’s no guarantee, so I’m going to see if we can manage without.

So, in the absence of projects made by me, I’m very cheekily going to show you some of my birthday cards, starting with this one, by my friend and downline, Alison, as I know she won’t mind.

Alison is noted for her tardiness in sending cards – I’ve received Christmas cards at 6pm on Christmas Day itself, and this beautiful card (along with a VERY nice present) was left on my doorstep at 10pm on my birthday.  It uses many products that I don’t have, and I don’t have time to root through the catalogues to find you a recipe, sorry about that. I don't even know the name of that DSP, how shocking is that? I love how she's used the small butterfly punch on top of a tiny piece of Stitched Satin Ribbon. And the Honeycomb Embossing Folder on vellum is lovely, as its split the paper - a spritz of something shiny has made it curl up nicely, too.  Anyone care to fill in the gaps?

Better go - not only do I have to go to work, but I've been sitting here so long that a spider has tried to make a web from me. True.
