A little gem from Whimsy Stamps and a big op for Glenn!

Good morning all

Well at last the snow has gone and its a little bit warmer this morning - thank goodness.  Its been an awful week weather wise and for me too!  I don't think my feet have touched the floor this week so many things have been going on.  The thing that's taken most of my time has been my poor dog Glenn having to have an operation on his leg because he ruptured his cruciate ligament.  Its been a bit of a week because the vet I had to take him to isn't my normal local one so there's been a lot of tooing and froing on top of the normal life things like going to work! - there wasn't much crafty time left over.  In fact I'm back off to the vet again this morning to have him checked over, then at least we get a break before he goes back to have the staples remove in 10 days.  He's such a good dog we've been doing his "physio" exercises and massages and he just gives you a look as if to say - ok whats happening now.

Anyway I did manage to  get this card finished just to squeeze in at the end of the week - luckily it was part made before all the  trips to the vet fun started 

I used another of Marika Collins little gems for this card - I love these little girls with their big eyes and messy hair - they're perfect for little girls and teens.

This cutie is called Alex and she's available here 
I think she's just perfect for those tweeny girls but would make a fab valentine too

This is what I did....

Image - "Alex" from Marika Collins at whimsy stamps
Coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils
Papers - are from MME but I can't find which one - sorry
Sentiment - From a kanban set
Butterfly punch and border punch - Martha Stewart
Corner dies - Whimsy stamps
Flowers and leaves - spellbinders ditzy blossoms
Shaped frames - spellbinders - labels ten
Gems from my stash

Must rush - off to the vets again!!

Sorry to hear Glenn has had an op, but sounds like he's being good about the after care - hope he continues to get better.

Aww poor Glenn… I hope he is doing ok Judith! I think it's even harder when your pets are unwell as you can't explain to them what you are doing! I hope he is feeling better very soon!

Hope all is going well
Big hugs
