Christmas Candle

Morning all.  Hope this finds you well and happy this Saturday morning.

As you know, Vince had a day at the hospital yesterday.  He is home now, as he still hadn't wee'd for them in 24 hours and had turned into a wild and savage beast.  Never thought I would use those words to describe my kitty, and you wouldn't believe it if you could see him now sprawled across the back of the sofa in his usual spy-on-the-neighbours position.  The little devil.  Yesterday was a complete roller-coaster of emotion so I was over the moon to get him back this morning.  BUT.  Isn't there always a but?  He has got to go back, an early morning appointment, and see how he is on the table (normally he just lies down and submits) and if he is still resistant then it will be sedation and a needle aspiration direct from the bladder.  Yeah, I know, it sounds so painful but the vet assures me that it is totally routine and perfectly fine.

Right, that's the cat saga updated so let's get on with today's card.  This had been intended for three challenges, but when I had finished I realised I had missed out the very thing that the third challenge was asking for.  Anyway, here it is.

I have used my most favourite non-James-bear LOTV Christmas stamp
This one is Christmas Candle
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
I think you might guess from the dominance of pink what the third challenge would have been
Papers are Papermania
Sentiment is Hero Arts
Snowflakes are Woodware and X-Cut punches

And the two valid challenges are

Right then, I am off to see if Vince would like a cuddle and then do some crafting.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Gorgeous card Squirrel…cats be CRAZY. At least two of my cats have crazy-killer-psycho alter-egos… the other seven probably do as well, I just haven't had the misfortune of seeing them in their crazy states :D Hopefully they'll be able to extract some pee without having to take drastic measures!
