Over the past few weeks we have had a worrying time (in addition to this
horrific pandemic), as our darling kitty, who is 15 1/2, has had several trips
to our vet, including for a general anaesthetic. Our wonderful vet has
 discovered what is wrong, and has prescribed treatments which will
most likely have to continue for the remainder of Cookie's life.

This is the card I have made for Cookie to give to Karleigha when he has to visit
her again later this week (along with a box of choccies). As well as Cookie writing
a "thank you" in the card, he will include an apology for being such a naughty boy
for her. "Co-operation" is not a word in Cookie's dictionary!! At home he is the 
cutest little boy, but for sweet, gentle Karleigha he morphs into a hissing,
growling, biting Cujo...he is so embarrassing!

This is a much loved stamp I have had and used for many years.
As always I have used Promarkers to colour the cute image.

A closer look at my hand-made paper flowers, and their tiny
bead centres.

I have only had the set of cling stamps that this greeting is from
for a few months, but it is becoming a favourite.

As I have been writing this post (and earlier) I have been entranced by the music of Beethoven. Since 2001 the ABC Classical Radio Station have held a 'Top 100' each year. Listeners are invited to list their favourite classical music, each year having a different theme (movies, dance, opera, 'swoon' etc., or other famous composers). The ABC then play a 'countdown' over an entire weekend, then release the Top 100 as a boxed set of CDs.

Until next time, thank you for visiting,
Hugs (virtual of course),
Jennifer.  xx
