Sketch n stash

Just a wee birthday card I made using the following sketch from Sketch n stash - you can choose whichever sketch you want from their list for this challenge - it's really good for getting new ideas.  I used some long neglected paper flowers and leaves - the leaves have sat on my desk for about 4 years - one of those things I like so much that I'm afraid of using them up!!  The DP on the other hand is one of my most recent purchases and the Autumny colours are perfect for this time of year - just can't believe how quickly it has started to feel like Autumn!

Got my new SU catalogue today - the new 'in colours' are really lovely this time - I particularly like the island indigo and pool party shades - just as well my friend is having a workshop soon, so I'll have an excuse to order a few things! (by the way E - you didn't tell me that you'd bought so much they have now named a stamp set after you!!- see page 57!)

Our poor wee cat has spent the day (and tonight) at the vets.  We found her lying in the garage last night unable to walk and it turns out she has broken the head of her femur.  She has a habit of running up and down the roof in the evening trying to catch the bats that fly around and she must have fallen off.  Looks like she's going to have to be closed in a small area where she can't climb or do herself more damage, for at least four weeks.  There was also a suggestion that they could remove the head of the bone altogether, but I think that sounds a bit drastic.  Hopefully she'll be able to come home tomorrow.
