Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

Wednesday 6 May 2015


Morning all.  Well, me and Rosie have been to the vet this morning for her vaccinations.  I had bought a pair of leather gardening gloves in readiness for getting her in the carrier but with a little encouragement from some Dreamies treats I didn't actually need them.  I am pleased to say that even though she howled all the way there, she was putty in the vet's hands (I would have been too, he's very handsome) and she had her vaccine and worming tablet without a squeak.  I am very proud of her.  The return visit in three weeks for the top-up might be a different matter though!

It's said that great minds think alike, and I notice that my bloggy pal Annette has posted a card using the same image today!

This cutie is Springtime from Whimsy/Wee Stamps
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
I have used my favourite dies of the moment
MFT In & Out Stitched Rounded Corner Squares
a border punch from Martha Stewart
Petal Party dies from Memory Box
and a lot of Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress Inks with a blending sponge
Sentiment is from LOTV
and the sparkly gems from my stash

Hope you are having a super day
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Such a pretty pink spring card! I'm glad to hear that Rosie got a great bill of health and behaved herself.

I had a cat who let loose a torrent of the stinkiest cat pee you ever did smell once the vet entered the room. It was eye watering. The vet and staff talked about that for years afterward (and kitty had to ride home in the bed of the truck).

I see both great minds also thought alike in choosing pink...an excellent choice I must say :-)

A beautiful design too, the flowers and sentiment finish it perfectly.

I have a bit of birthday money to spend and I have to say I am totally eyeing up those rounded corner stitched dies...

I'm glad Rosie was so good about the trip to the vets :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
