Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day...

Eh, "Better late than never" as the saying goes...!
I am ever grateful for our vet and her staff
as they give us top-notch care and never give up
trying to solve our what seems to be constant conumdrums
of cat woes.
And since Valentine's day is coming up came and went,
we wanted to spoil them a bit
so here's what I came up with...

Inside the box...
are packages of Hershey Nuggets...



on their own cute little tray...
this is the inside...

and this is the outside...

I *think* the measurement for the tray was something like 4 1/4" x 1 7/8"
then score each long side at the 1/4" mark...

If when I do this again...
I think I will try a 4"x whatever it will take to maybe give me a
1/2" score on each side---
gotta try that to see-it's a little longer than it needed to be-
and I think  I'd like a little higher side...
but that's just me!
Here's another tip---
Avery Address Labels (5160 or 8160)
fit almost perfectly!!!
There's just a smidgen that was not covered on the bottom!
I formatted my label in Publisher
and printed them out. 
Easy peasy.
I used a pretzel bag to wrap them-
twisted a piece of washi tape at the top and flagged the ends.
Trimmed off the excess bag at the top
(it would easily hold 8 nuggets I think...)
Had a plain white box in my stash
so wrapped a piece of washi tape around it
and then hot-glued some nuggets to the front.
I did Minion heart treat boxes for the preschoolers
but failed to take a photo of them
before I handed them all out.
Life has been wide open upside down wild for me.
Tomorrow this guy gets to go to the vet again.

Seems something is wrong with his right back leg and he's been on pain killers
for the last few days.
Will get some x-rays to see what's going on and,
if all that isn't enough,
he's got some kidney things starting in conjunction with his diabetes.
So we are in for food changes and adding a few meds to his daily insulin injections.
Oh boy....this should be fun!
I am just thankful that, for now at least, we do not have to do
subcontaneous  (sp?) fluids like we did with BC.
I am sure it's in our future but, for now, we don't have to deal with that.
I love how he sometimes "forgets" to put his tongue back in!

That's all for today.
Keep warm wherever you are--
the wind is in the willows here at the beach-
its been blowing a gale for two days now.
Until next time,
happy stamping and scrapping!
