It's raining here. A lot. It's raining like it's never rained before, you know. All the snow is gone and it as all dark and murky. One of those days you want to snuggle with your book, a cup of coffee or tea, and not go anywhere. But, I do have to go to get my kitty from the vet. He went in yesterday for a check up as there was a bit of a bleeding from his front paw, but it's all good. Raddatatt is coming home. So, it's a pleasure more than a chore. These are some photos of him from September.

I spy with my little eye... Something hiding in my cupboard!!!!

"Oh, no! She found me!"

I also craft on rainy days. This is the last of the cards we made at the last club meeting, and it happened to see the day on a rainy day like today. Yeah, what are the odds of that, right???? LOL.

Supplies Used:
Paper: Very Vanilla (SU!), Pacific Point (SU!), Garden Green (SU!), Everyday Enchantment (SU!)
Ink: Pacific Point (SU!)
Stamps: Three Little Words (SU!)
Other: Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled Ribbon (SU!), Antique Brads (SU!), Paper piercer with Mat Pack (SU!), Paper Doily Large Sizzlit Die (SU! Occasions Mini 2012), White Gel Pen (SU!), EYelet Border Punch (SU!), Wintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder (SU!)

I can't say that this year was good so far. Way too many bad things happened already.

My mum is not doing great health wise and for few days we were not even sure if she would make it. She is doing better now, thank you. At first doctors thought it was a stroke, but after some extensive tests, they are quite certain that it is not, but who knows. It sounds to me like a bit of "He likes me, he likes me not" diagnosis. The only CT scanner in her town is broken and they have to wait for a CT scan to make sure. The things we take for granted and are a luxury elsewhere. Makes me even more thankful for what I have.

Three days ago, Charlie fell off the climbing structure after school, I saw it happen, and it scared poopies out of me. So I ran to him, only to slip on the gravel and fall myself. We're both ok, just a touch scraped. Ouch. :-)

Our kitty Raddatatt got badly hurt two days ago. He suffered an extensive trauma to all 4 of his legs. The vet thinks that he possibly went under a car, climbed on top of the engine and the owner started the car. Apparently, it is very common with cats. They go for the warmth of the engine, and it is the motor belt that gets them. He is a very lucky kitty, it could have been much worse. He came home as usual and until I saw a bloody trial after him, I didn't even realize that something was wrong. I took him to the vet, all while shaking and crying. Luckily, I was in a cab, not driving. He was stitched, a hind leg was also taped and braced as one of his joints was dislocated. The vet is expecting a full recovery. My boys were just devastated when he got home that night from the vet looking like a Frankenstein, all stapled and drugged. They are doing better now when they see him slowly recovering. I don't want to take any pictures, he really is not a pretty sight right now. :-(

So, no more. That is three. They say that bad things come in threes. I've done my share of bad things for this year in the first 12 days of the year.

On the other hand, here is another card we made with my club. Lookie:

My house is de-Christmasized. The tree is down, the lights are gone, nut crackers are asleep... My Christmas stamps are packed up to wait for next October. My new Dylusions stamps arrived today.... Lookie:

Here is a quick list of supplies, I am sure I've forgotten something - there was a pile of stuff in the studio after I was done.

Supplies Used:
black gesso, Watercoloring paper, Perfect Pearls Powders, Copic markers, SU watercoloring markers, crackle paint, stencils, Stazon ink, Punchinella, tissue tape, Gaffers' tape, acrylic paint, gel medium, color wash, butterfly 3D stickers, SU bling, gold leaf pen, white gel pen, glitter pen.
