Monday and July! Where is the time going? I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I ended up at the emergency vets at 7.30pm on Saturday as my little Bramble bunny developed gut stasis, which can be fatal. Fortunately, we caught it early and with injections of strong painkillers and gut stimulants, the following morning she was boinging about and eating again. She's still on tummy and pain relief meds for a few days, but she seems back to her normal self. The vet was lovely and don't tell her boss, but only charged me the Saturday consultation rate, rather than the out of hours rate. Of course, I'd happily pay whatever was necessary, but hey, more money for crafting!
On Sunday, Hubby treated me to lunch at the local garden centre (brie, bacon and cranberry panini, yum) and they have a craft section where he bought me an 8x8 paper pad, Travel Notes by First Edition. This sheet of arrow paper in the pad was perfect to team up with one of the left over animals from the freebies from this month's Making Cards magazine. I used one of the Tattered Lace Sahara Labels dies to cut out the aperture in the paper and mounted it on some green card. I cut a fishtail banner out of the same card (although it randomly looks darker in the pic) and stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment before adding it to the card on foam tape. I also added the raccoon with foam tape and gave him googly eyes to finish. Simples!
