Delicious Doodles

The challenge this week at Delicious Doodles is ANYTHING GOES

For my card I used the lovely Peacock Butterfly image by Teri

I painstakingly made this card with love and care- it took me ages

The top flowers I used my own homemade melting pot idea for this and it took ages to melt the clear embossing powder with a heat gun then dunk them in- same with the swirls

I think I will have to out a melting pot on my wish list

The papers are by Tim Holz and the metal thing at the bottom says Dreams incse you can;t make it out

Looking forward to seeing all your cards this week for the challenge

And as you can tell I just love this flower die by Paper Artsy seeng as it has been on every card I've made since I got it

This week the challenge at Delicious Doodles is an Easte theme with ribbon and I used this lovely ribbon from our sponsor this week and Easter Bunny and parcel image from Teri .

I do hope you can join in this week.

Update on Misty- specialist looked at her xrays and decided either she has slipped a disc or the arthritis at base of spine is annoying a disc, so we have to continue with the rest and metacam and see how she goes and if it doesn't improve or it comes back then she will have to go for an MRI scan.

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz

Here we are Sunday again- where does the time go to - not even done my card for last weeks Kenny K challenge and here we are at a new one!!!

The challenge this week is Pretty in Pink so I went with the pretty Tim Holz pink papers for this one and my wobble card must be drunk cause it leans to the right- that's what I get for making a heavy flower but if you tilt your head when you look then it's straight...

Little update on Misty- she went into the vets on Thursday for xrays of her leg

She has mild athritis at the base of the spine- but not enough to make her lame

and also she has mild Hip Dysplasia- but again not enough to make her so lame and actually the right side is worse than the left yet it is the left that she has the problems with

Her xrays are being sent to an orthopeodic surgeon to study to see if he can spot anything else so meantime she is on metacam and short lead exercise with lots of rest

Let me tell you that is a nightmare as she keeps wanting to run and then scowling at me when I say No

Off now to get some more orders up to date before going down to Mums for dinner and

a BIG Happy Mother's Day to all
