Never Too Old for Cupcake

This Lili of the Valley stamp is just so cute and I think its suitable for any age group. I mean I don't think anyone is ever too old for cupcake. I've used Jacques Valentine Sketch from Lilis Little Fairies challenge blog as my layout for the card. The papers are First Edition Love Letters. The lace heart and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, and I've added glamour dust to her wings. I'm entering this card into the following challenges Week 6 - Jacques Valentine Sketch, Charisma Cardz Challenge #5 - Things with Wings, and Allsorts Challenge Blog Week 141 is Free and Easy February.

Happy Valentines

What an awful day yesterday. At least we were lucky enough to miss out on the awful snow that affected a large portion of the country. We had rain, rain and more rain, so what better time than to get crafting. Pity about the lighting tho'. I've made my hubbies valentines card using Tilda with heart. I've paper pieced her dress using First Edition Love Letters paper, and I've used the same paper for the 3 double ended banners. I've used my Cuttlebug hearts embossing folder for the red background paper. The flowers are baby pink and white sweetheart blossom flowers from wild orchid crafts. I also made a box still with the red and pink theme and added Martha Stewart hearts on each side and Nestie hearts on the top. This has 4 chocolates inside which I'm hoping will be shared with me!! I'm entering this card in to a few challenges

My poorly boy

My poor Archie is suffering. He's gone and split one of his claws on his front paw and my poor little boy is in pain. Hubby took him to the vets this morning as last night he came into the house after being out in the back garden with his paw bleeding. I don't know whether its all dogs but Archie hates having his paws touched, so it was hard work trying to soak up the blood. This morning we could tell he wasn't himself. The vet has given him an antibiotic injection and if his paw isn't better by Monday then the vet is going to pare it down (that doesn't sound nice). You can tell he is sometimes in pain because he starts shivering and takes ages to stop, or he moves and then puts his paw up in the air. My poor little boy hope he gets better soon.
