Emily Walking

Morning all.  Happy Saturday to you!  Toad has just got back from the doctors, his shoulder was still hurting after his Superman episode a while back, but is relieved to be told it's nothing (ha!) more than a trapped nerve.  Poor little chap has been in quite a lot of pain but I think the relief of knowing will help things get better faster.  So we are a household of poorly shoulders now!  Even Vince is limping - he is getting stiff on his back end, poor old boy, so what a bunch of crocks we are.

Anyhoo, just popped by to share this card with you which I made for a work mate, her birthday was in the week so I am safe to post.

I just love this Wild Rose Studio Stamp - Emily Walking
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are a mixture of LOTV/Nitwits from various pads
Circular sentiment is Little Claire, Happy Birthday is Paper Smooches
Flowers are Die-Namics Upsy-Daisy dies
Image panel was a Spellbinders label die

I am laying in wait for the postman this morning - am expecting a bundle of goodies from the Glitter Pot and also an eBay auction win of a new Kipling handbag.  I am trying not to make it too obvious or Toad will get suspicious, lol.

We will be off to visit the Oldies with their Easter goodies later, and then back to watch the highlights for this weekend's Grand Prix, and a Chinese takeaway for dinner.  A perfect day me thinks.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Ha Ha S, Good old Ebay, I have two Kipling bags one from QVC and the other half price from a local shop, nice bags.
Your card is super. Love that image, must try and get that, it's lovely.
Oh no you poor lot. I too have a shoulder and knee injury, they are awful and you have to end up living with it!!
Happy Easter. debbiex

Annette said...

Do you know what, I was just thinking how lovely this was and then I realised that I even have this stamp and have not inked her up yet. Along with quite a few others! LOL. It's a wonder I don't end up with duplicates though! She's lovely hun, love your colouring and the papers are really pretty. Love the bear's cute face and where you've left it pale around his eyes.

Hope you 'got away' with your purchases and managed to sneak them in the house without Toad noticing until you're ready to announce "what, this old thing?, No darling, I've had this years!" :0)

The chinese sounds nice too. I'll be round at tea time if that's ok. Chicken and cashew nuts please, and a few spring rolls. :0) You've got me wanting chinese for tea too now. Oh dear. Hubster has just mentioned that he's not that hungry and do I fancy scrambled eggs on toast for tea. It's not quite what I had in mind.

Just finished the second coat of paint on the garden wall, and planting my tubs for the front, and so I'm off to play at my craft desk.

I might possibly have bid on a stamp on ebay too. Whoops!


Annette said...

ps - glad Toad's war wounds are nothing 'more serious' than a trapped nerve, although that can take a while to heal and is not pleasant in the meantime. Fingers crossed it's better soon.

A gorgeous creation Squirrel. Love the colours you have used. Love the way you have stamped the sentiment on the backing paper.

Hope your parcels arrived and you didn't get caught out by Toad.

Enjoy the rest of the Easter Weekend.
