CAS-ual Fridays

Yes, I know it's not Friday now, it is most definitely Saturday!  I follow the CAS-ual Fridays blog by email, and every week their post pops up, and every week I drool over what the very skilled DT have made.  Every week I think, I love CAS, I should enter this, and every week I am either too late, or too scared.

So, this is a first (or it might be a second, I'm not sure) - I am going to enter the challenge.  I am!

The theme is Birthday Boy.  I really don't mind making male cards, but perhaps that is because of my style, fluff free.  Anyhoo, this is what I shall be entering in a few moments.

I absolutely love this "Surprise" set of stamps from CC Designs, Roberto's Rascals - I have used the two girls for a couple of makes already, but this is the first outing for the little chap.
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils for his hair
Sentiment from the same set
Simple white image panel with a coloured mat on a white card base

We have been to the v.e.t. this morning.  The last appointment we had was cancelled as someone wasn't playing fair, but this morning, with Toad as an extra pair of hands, we managed to get her in the carrier.  There was the usual howling in the car but once we arrived she was relatively calm ..... until the worming tablet.  Would she swallow it?  Would she heck.  The poor vet even had to resort to the technique of thumb over the nose, but Rosie is a stubborn girl.  She only consented to swallow once she had so much dribble in her mouth that the tablet must have dissolved on her tongue, and we all know what that tastes like!  So, she is vaccinated for another year, wormed and claw clipped.  Phew.

This is the post-vet-trauma-shock photo

Feeling sorry for her?!

Hope you are having super weekends
Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

I would feel more sorry for her if she weren't such a stubborn brat in the first place. LOL As to this make, he's a cutie patootie. It's a very happy stamp set. I 'm just waiting to see that adorable pup as he's my favourite. I'm hoping that this Fall when all the reno is done I'll be able to add to my menagerie with a playmate for Zoe. The cats are not enjoying her invitations to play Chase Me. That will be the perfect occasion for a party pup in a box. Wink, wink.�� Hugs

SURPRISE it is your birthday is so much nicer than SURPRISE here is that pill back in drooly half-dissolved form. Dio has to take a half a tablet daily (supposed to take it twice a day, but it makes him too dopey). He holds it in his mouth until it is completely icky. He just refuses to swallow. I often blow up his nose. I'll have to try the finger over his nose. So persnickety!
