I've finally managed to get the picture of the cat and 2 dogs done, that i was comissioned to do ages ago. I just hope the customer is happy with it; i'm pleased with how it turned out. I'm so glad i've got it done; was starting to get a little stressed about it.

Snowy Aberdeen

Decided to take some photos of the view from my living room window this morning. Rather wintry to say the least.

Theo's 3rd Birthday

It's my nephew Theo's 3rd Birthday on Monday, so i had to make some birthday cards for him this week, as they needed posting down to Swansea, Wales, where he lives. He is mad on 'Ben 10' the cartoon at the moment, so that was the theme for his cards this year. I searched the web for some images, and made some background papers with them, then i cut the letters of his name out of these papers, laminated them and adhered to the card, along with a laminated image of Ben. For the second card i found another image i liked, printed it out 4 times and decoupaged it up to make the centre element of the card. I used green and yellow papers for the backgrounds, and diecut 'happy birthday' out of them. Added some yellow and green circle stickers and on the second card i added some stitching detail to tie the card together.

Both of the cards are A3ish in size, so Theo should love them, and hopefully he'll be able to put them on his wall.

Good Morning Ladies

Hope your all well? I'm not, had a very bad night, short story is i have a bad tooth, big one at the back on the top left hand side, has been bothering me for a while now, and i've been putting off going to the dentist, cos i'm a coward. Well brushed teeth late last night and the tooth brush went into the open cavity and i think i must have hit the nerve,cos i've never felt such pain in my life, honestly thought i was gonna faint it was so bad; and boy did it throb after that. So finally called NHS 24 and i've got an emergency appointment at 12.15 today; so i'm hoping they can sort it out for me, cos i never want to feel pain like that again.

Stewart's been wonderful about it all, really looking after me last night and today; and he hasn't said "I told you to go to the dentist" much, only once or twice. He's right i should have listend to him, but i'm a stubborn old mare, and dentists aint my favourite people.

This will definately teach me.

So if i'm not around for a couple of days, you know why.

Hope you all have a better sunday than i'm gonna have.

Take Care all
