Vet Retirement Card

Good Morning everyone, 

I hope you all had a good Easter holiday and if like me you were enjoying tasty French strawberries in the sun then you had a lovely time.

Well over night we have had kittens, well in the last hour, second one just born, mother is settled down in the living room, only problem here is that its not my cat😊.  After this little, well her tummy was massive was pestering me all day yesterday, last night she got very insistent on coming in when i suddenly thought she is in labour, so settled her down in a box and quiet corner for the night, she had the first one about an hour ago.  Madam Tilly is being very good and on guard duty now as my other 2 cats aren't too happy! 

So Happy Spring.

Our farm vet is retiring so today i am sharing the card my dad asked me to make for him, of course it had to contain lots of animals. 





8x8 card blank.  Brusho sky and grass background.  Lots of dies cut in various different colour cards to build up the scene.  I forgot to take a photo of the insert which i managed to get more animals onto using digi images, cows and donkeys.  David was very good to the family donkey over the years. Computer printed sentiment matted onto dark chocolate cardstock.  Most of it is this dark chocolate, only the bench is black. 



Close up, the chocolate Labrador 


Close up, of course had to be a ginger Tom.

Items used as best as i can remember!:
Memory box dies - cat, dog, squirrels, flying birds, resting birds, park bench, fench, tree, 
Impression Obsession - clouds, rabbits, tree blossom flowers, 
Cheerylynn - grass
Sizzix - sun
Spellbinders de-lites - small tree
