Early morning ramblings

Well, I haven't done much cardmaking these past few days due to having a poorly cat....had to take Billy to the vets last Thursday as he seemed to be suffering a bit when he ate, and his left eye looked a bit swollen.... I thought he maybe had a dodgy tooth, but it turned out there was a nasty swelling and he was kept in that night so they could lance it and make sure it wasn't a tumour . We were able to fetch him home Friday afternoon, armed with antibiotics, and a return visit booked for Monday. Two doses of pills (great fun !) and Mondays visit later, he seems a lot better and it's pretty certain that it was a nasty abcess and nothing more sinister. Consequently, I haven't done very much in my little corner of craft, only 5 cards, and I need to get cracking as I have put my name down for the Sketch Challenge on Trimcraft, and that needs to be uploaded by Saturday. I have made a card for it, but not taken a pic of it yet, and I would quite like to do another one as well..I also need to make a card for my husbands daughter (I suppose I should say step daughter, but I just don't like that term much), and I can't get an idea of what to do..I have made one card, but I'm not sure if I like it or not..I have, however made a card for one of Dave's grandaughters (Dave is 15 years older than me and has a son and daughter, and 4 grandaughters, so a ready made family almost !), and I am quite pleased with that card. I bought some of the Smirk range recently, didn't think I liked them at first, but thought I would try some of the decoupage kits, and they aren't bad, although you will see I've added a little something when I get around to uploading the one I made..can you guess what I wonder ?! On that note I had better pull the plug for now, and I won't be on here much tomorrow as we will have no power till the late afternoon as they are working on the lines all day..now, where's that camping stove ?
