Lady Bug, Lady away home...

Wow.  Long time, no post!
Between all the physical therapy for my arm
which btw turned out to be myofascial  (sp?) tissue
and scar tissue from right side gall bladder and hysterectomy surgeries
that goes from the right side---to the left shoulder?
Go figure!
Working on the scar tissue area on the right---relieves the numb fingers on the left!
Then the Bad Cat has been living up to his name
and not eating.
Or I should say not eating what he needs to be eating
for his IBD---
so on top of the hyperthyroid stuff, high bp,
we're trying to deal with IBD flare ups
and not wanting to eat.
Raw venison and raw fish
and dry Purina cat food.
That's it.
So we're walking a fine, fine line.
And cherishing every day
that he is still cantankerous enough
to be up and about and meowing and interacting.
I fear we're at the beginning of a downward slide...
all that---has kept me away.
I did make a set of notecards for a friend...
who loves lady bugs...

The gingham is a SU rubber stamp---
and the border behind it is a MS punch---
I stamped and embossed the image with clear embossing powder.
The oval embossed cut out is from an SU embossing folder.

No naked mail-stamped the enves too!
Punched the edge of some plain white paper
and lined the inside of the cards...

And since that little oval on the front is popped up...
the cards and enves were too thick to put  in the "bag pocket" I wanted to make
and as I was uploading these---I realized I had not photographed
the card holder I did make---
a small magazine style holder from the CTMH AP or Artiste cartridge---
so fly on back tomorrow for those pics...

Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping.
