Well, I have had some bad and some worse news again this week!! (1)The big mare had an abscess and was hobbling - clearing up now though, thanks to the vet!!!..(2) The doctor says I will prolly need an op on my right knee later in the year cos I did for it on those two falls in Feb/Mar - oh goodie, as if we didn't have enough metal bits already!!! (3) a whole load of regular carers have vamooshed, so we are back to muddle again!! - yippee, you know you didn't have enough to worry about!!! (4) I need a new boiler cos my old, reliable, goodly working one has a screw loose - not the only one around here girlie!!!! - and they can't get parts... only had it for 35 years!!! and (5) my paws are DREADFUL in this damp, changeable weather - quite a litany, so shut up now please and show 'em what you got!!!
well, that's YOUR excuse anyway, lazy girl!!
TIO, is a symphony of flowers, so I did lots of metal and paper ones, with Timmie tape for the symphonic background.... the special ingredients had to be a pinch of greenery, buttons and a butterfly or two... so that's what I offer!!
Oh, and those butterflies?? Well they are from an MS punch, but could not be colourful in this setting, so they are nade from black cardstock, like the flourishes.. The ribbon was dyed using frayed burlap and black soot. So that's this time's offering. I hope Helen feels it fits the bill. BTW, I did not get a place on the Artist Stamper Creative team... never mind, my heart will mend eventually!!! I will be along to see you soon.... Have a great week.
Love and light
