My Lovely Followers- Thank You

Friday, 12 August 2011


Good afternoon everyone, hope you are all well.

I ended up at the docs this morning, had to have a needle and antibiotics. Long story, will try & make it shorter. My daughter's neighbour moved house a week ago and left two cats, (one of which is old & poorly), yes, just left them outside the house! Grrr!!!

Sam, my daughter has been feeding them and also phoned the RSPCA, who have had trouble catching them. The younger one has moved on as Sam has'nt seen him since Monday. The older one just sits on the window looking in the house, bless her.  So we thought we might be able to take her to the RSPCA ourselves as she's been coming to Sam when she feeds her. We managed to get her into the box but she soon realised what was happening and used my wrist as a means of clawing her way out and then ran off. She has come back but the RSPCA are going to put a cage out to try to get her and Sam is going to keep feeding her.

Sooo! I ended up with an infected wrist where she'd dug her claws in. 

But if I could get my hands on the woman that left them.................Grrr!!!

Anyhoo! Here's my card I made today.

I used: a Mo Manning image
K & co papers
Spectrum Noirs & Derwent pencils
Whimsy Stamps postage stamp & die
Marriane D dies
Mcgill punch
Flowers & dewdrops from stash

I'm entering it into: Samuel Taylors sketch challenge
KB Cute Monday anything goes, with a digi image

  3. Auck Donna, sorry to hear about your wrist and how awful can someone be to abandon their pets!! Grrrrrr. My wee Nimbus uses my hubby as her daily chew toy but would never think of hurting me. He's got major scars on his legs from last summer when he was sat outside in his shorts. Nimbus saw his bare ankles as an invitation to chew on, heehee. Hope you are ok. Your card is beautiful, your wrist certainly hasnt affected your gorgeous card making skills. Lee xx

  6. Oh my goodness Donna, what a shame!! Hope it heals up soon and isn't too sore. Lovely card - such a wee cutie and love the colour combination. Luv & Hugs Trish x

  7. Hi Donna, Ouch! Poor you and poor cats. It is maddening to think people could do that, it's so sad. I hope yoru wrist heals up for you soon Donna. Your card is a stunner! Loving the pink and green and that fab image, coloured beautifully as always. Have a great evening, Hugs, Teresa x

  8. What are people like, that would make me go grrr too. Sorry to hear that you have an infected wrist because of all the hassle - let's hope the cage works! Great card, as always, sweet image and lovely papers. Hope you have a great weekend hun ..... and beware of CATS! Hugs, Claire x

  9. Sorry to hear about your wrist - especially as you were trying to do a good deed. I agree with you though - I can't stand people who do things like that to their pets!

  10. HI sweetie this is stunning i LOVE these colours, hope your hand heals soon hun nothing worse than cats hugs pops x xx

  11. Donna - poor you - hope the wrist feels better soon. As for the woman who just left her cats -I think that kind of behavious is just terrible. The poor cats must be so confused. I do hope the RSPCA catches the cat soon.

    However, having a damaged wrist doesn't seem to have dented your creative flow!! This is a really pretty card. Great colours, lovely layers, sweet flowers and the cutest little girl - great expression on her face!

  12. Aw poor puddy cats, some people can be so cruel, I hope they find nice new homes soon! And I hope your wrist gets better too!
    This is a really pretty card Donna, I love the colours and gorgeous flowers :)

  13. Hi Donna gorgeous card, pretty colours and such a sweet image, some people just dont deserve to have pets. Janette x

  14. OUCH is right hun!! I really hope you heal up quickly!! your card is so adorable!! This little girl is so sweet and your coloring is beautiful too!! Hope you have a lovely weekend friend! :)

  15. Hi!Ooh Donna that must be so sore :( and how bad are they to do that...really hope your wrist is better soon.
    Gorgeous card,your colouring is perfect too.
    hugs Lou.xx

  16. Ouch, bet that hurt Donna but at least the antibiotics will help it heal quickly. Thats just cruel to dessert 2 cats like that. Dont like kennel/cattery bills when where away, like a mortgage payment when we get back lol but dont have them if you can look after them. Anyway, gorgeous card, shes beautifully coloured as always. Nice to see you can still craft!

  17. Oh what a sad tale, I do feel sorry for those poor little cats. Bad luck for you to get scratched so badly especially as you were only trying to help. On to your card though, it did make me smile, such a cute image & I love those Whimsy stamp sentiments.

  18. OMG those poor cats, and poor you for getting hurt trying to help. That's awful, that woman deserves a bloody slap for being so cruel.
    Your card is stunning hun, your colouring really brings that sweet image to life.
    I must print mine off I bought it when Mo released it but that's just one of many I'm yet to colour.
    Have a lovely weekend hun :)
    hugs Mandy xx

  25. Hi Donna...poor you. Hope your wrist gets better soon. Your card is beautiful. Love the colours and the image.

  26. I cannot understand that people can do something like this to animals. So terrible. Hope your wrist will heal soon. Your card is so lovely. Such a cute image and your color combo is fabulous.
    Hugs, Karina

  27. Gorgeous card! I can't believe that someone would move and leave their pets behind! That's awful!!!! Hope your wrist gets better soon. Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx

  28. YOWCHERS!!! I feel your pain & frustration! Stoopid people!! I hope you are feeling a bit better today and I sure hope you can still be all crafty!! This card is super sweet. Those colors go so well together! And your flowers are delish! Take Care.

  29. ouch!! I bet that was sore.
    people who dump animals make me sick!! Something similar happened here, as the cats kept coming back to their old house. I later found out the owners had only moved round the corner and hadn't abandoned them. Why do people have animals if they won't look after them?? grrrrrrr.
    Anyway, hope you are now ok and your card is another beauty! xx

  30. I just don't know how people can be so heartless,i too would like to get my hands on her.Can you tell us the latest on them please Donna.Do hope your wrist is better now.Oh yes lol,your card is STUNNING,i love the colours you use.Me thinks me will have to become a follower.xx

  31. Dear Donna,

    your variation in design is amazing, the eye for detail in all the colours used is outstanding. You picked an amazing card to case, but the elegance in your card is very evident. The stamping is really the star here in this paper performance and I think I am in love
