Another Pergamango Card!

Oh I am getting to be a bad blogger these days!
There is just not enough hours in the day to get everything done
that I need to do.
I have spent the last couple of days preparing everything for my kits for
Saturdays workshop.
We are making a scrapbook in a tin, a round tin.

Last night we had to go and pick Kitty's ashes up and I felt a bit emotional
caring the little box. Her ashes came in a lovely little pot with a very sweet sympathy card.

Tonight we had to take Tabby to the vets as he has a few sores and lumps on his body.
So he had to have an injection and he was very good but he had wee and was soaked.
We tried to bath him we we got home, oh my word he is a strong puss, you should see the state
of my bathroom!
Once he had settled down he had a bowl of chicken and is now fast a sleep!
Ok for some hee hee.

Right now back to my card, I hope you like this one as I had great fun in creating it!
This is my second Pergamano card I have never done anything like this before.
We have a lovely lady called Doreen who shows how to do the Pergamano techniques
on a Monday and I really look forward to Mondays.

Right I am now off to do some shopping at Tesco's,
see you soon.

My First Saturday Workshop!

Hello everyone!
I thought I would share with you my first
Saturday Workshop,

We had a fun 2 hour session yesterday
and everyone went away very happy
and looking forward to next weeks

I forgot to get my camera out and
some of the ladies had gone home.
I shall have to do better next week.

So here we are;
Christine, me, Margaret & Maureen.

Happy Crafting everyone
hope you are enjoying your Sunday!


Thank You!

I just want to say a very big thank you to everyone who has left me a message after we lost Kitty last week.
I have to say I was very touched!

I would just like to share two pictures of my baby, Tabby
our other stray. He is about 16 months old and since Kitty has died he has taken to sleeping in the house at night and using the litter tray, to our surprise.
He has even taken over her new bed!

We are so glad we have him as the house would be so empty.
He loves to play and have lots of cuddles,
he is just like a baby.
He follows me everywhere, just like a dog!

I will be back soon with some crafting posts.
