Crafty Sentiments - Animals

Well, who'd have thought it - it's two years today since I was "persuaded" to set up my little corner of blogland and never, for one second, did I believe I could have this much fun with a pc!  I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the wonderful friends I have made, each and every one of you has added extra sunshine to my life, and to all my loyal and trusty followers for sticking with it and making my day every time you drop by to say hi.  Squirrel's World would be a lonely place without you all.

Enough of the slushy!  I have just discovered the CRAFTY SENTIMENTS challenge and this time the theme is Animals.  Oooh there are some seriously cute inspiration cards over there!

I made this card for a very dear and special friend of mine that I haven't seen much of lately but she is always in my thoughts.

I adore this Laurence Design stamp but it didn't half give me a headache with the colouring!  I've discovered that I can colour and shade with browns til the cows come home but grey is a different game altogether!  Papers are Craft Too and Papermania and the sentiment (just love it) is Hero Arts.

And an update on the dentist visit - I was in such a state by the time I got there that I think she took pity on me.  I have three old fillings that are now "leaking" (apparently) so they need to be drilled out and replaced.  The dentist is referring me to the sedation clinic to have them done!!  Assessment on 11 April and then treatment fairly soon after.  Whilst I am a believer in the Creation Theory, I do think the Good Lord went slightly astray with the design of certain body parts!  There is the worrying thought that we might be living too long for our teeth - perhaps He actually designed us to keel over before middle age when things start wearing out.  Hmmmm.

Hugs, Sxx

Eeeeek - cringing over the thought of leaking fillings! I'm such a baby when it comes to teeth, I'll be checking mine constantly now for leaks!!!!! Hope all goes well for you and yours :)

Gorgeous card - hadn't realised how cute that little kitty was. Must dig mine out and get it coloured!

Adorable card! Leaking??? never heard of that one! Good grief! As for me I'm going with the theory that I'd rather wear out than rust out! Hang in there!

Happy 2nd bloggiversary! Sorry you're celebrating it with poorly teeth and I really hope they can sort you out. Sedation sounds like a good scheme {shudder}.

Adorable card as always, and I SO know what you mean about greys! There just aren't enough Copics shades are there? LOL

Have a great week,
