Skating By

Morning all.  So sorry that I haven't been around much this week, what with looking after a poorly Vince, work and Christmas preparations, it has shot past in a blur.

Pleased to let you know that Vince is much perkier now and is more like his old self.  Last weekend his coat was dry and strawy but is now back to soft and sleek, and he is, at long last, starting to eat properly.  OK, the meals are more like snacks, but he is at least eating something.  And he is looking much happier in himself, he has got rid of the sad face and we seem to be getting the cheeky face back.  We have his checkup appointment tomorrow night so I am keeping my fingers crossed that he gets the all clear.

I didn't get to do any crafting yesterday because I was frantically writing Christmas cards to get in the post this week so today's card is one I made a little while ago.

Love these Makey Bakey Mice from Crafters Companion
This happy chap is Festive Fun & Frolics
Papers are Nitwits/LOTV
Sentiment is from the Christmas Rounds set from Pink Gem Designs
Image painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)

I shall be finishing off writing the cards today and then making a start on getting some gift tags made!
Nothing like leaving til nearly the last minute hey?!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Oh I'm soooo pleased that Vince is eating a bit more and returning to his cheeky self. Although Arnie won't like it that I'll make him sleep in the kitchen again now I'm feeling less soppy! :0)
Fab card hun, I'm liking these images too and you've coloured him beautifully. Love the white bib.

Hello love! Fab card as always! Thrilled to hear Vince is getting back to his Monstrous self. =) Been fighting and losing to a bad cold. Hoping it stays in my head as I'm not sure the post-PE lungs will do well if it moves to my chest. Will e you soon. Looking forward to a better 2014 for us both! XO, Beansie
