A couple of Birthday cards.

Afternoon Bloggers, Blogger has not been good to me today it keeps going off. So while its being good I will show you a couple of cards I made recently. Once was for my Sister Irene's birthday and the other one was for my Best Friend who I have known  since I was a little girl - long time now ha ha. The first one is a stamping bella you know how much I love these stamps and a few others !!!!
I used Craftwork cards shaped card again, a Marianne D Die, craftwork card sentiment. Copics and a WOC flower.
The other card is a card made with Kraftin Kimmi its called Carole, cannot believe it as my best friend is called Carol without the e on the end.

I hope she liked it. Used Craftwork card stock once again and coloured in with copics. Used the little candies on the corner and a Large Nestie die. Martha stewart edge die. I have been making a few little cards for my 2nd daughter little 3 x 3 so that she can have them handy for thank you's etc.

I have a little sad tale to tell. My poor white cat who is 12 years old was run over on Friday afternoon and was left, he crawled into a neighbours garden and some little children who knew Max were coming home from school and told the lady that the cat belonged to me. I took Max to the RSPCA in Putney and they said they would Xray him on Saturday, they thought he had a broken back leg, he was crying to pityfull. Well he is still there !! They Xrayed him on Monday after I kept kicking up a fuss as they said they had lots of Emergencies which I understand it does happen well today they still haven't operated on him they asked me on Monday if I would like to either have his leg chopped off for £135.00, Pins in for £135.00 and a plate for £265.00 which they recommended as it would be better for him - I couldn't bear the thought of my cat having to have his leg off. Well I am not rich, but they said they couldn't operate until I had paid for the Op. I paid and I still have got to pay another £300.00 for medication etc. but really I am not amused as my poor little cat is drugged up and made comfortable until someone can operate on him. I rung them again today and they said it could be Thursday before the Op. I ask you would you let a human being go from Friday to Thursday with fractures !!! Sorry for the long winge, but I have lost a little respect for the RSPCA.

Well I will end here and hope you have a lovely Week all I ask is for my cat back and well.
Lots of love Jo.xxxxx

My Friend Cathy's 60th Birthday Card

Hi Everyone I'm back !!! Today is a sad day for America and everyone who lost their lives in this atrocity around the world. My thoughts are for all those families who have lost Mothers Fathers Brothers Sisters Aunts cousins nieces nephews, grandchildren God rest their souls.

I have had a fantastic 3 week holiday to Australia, Burma and Thailand. It was cold in Australia but Sunny, Yangon in Burma was very hectic and hot, then Monsoon weather in Thailand!! but the last 3 days it was hot and humid so got to put my swimmy cossie on but with a struggle, put on so much weight so much food everywhere the relatives kept feeding us all day afternoon and evening fit to burst, wow did we eat different foods, we went to Thailand for a rest. I'm not too keen on thai curries but love the fish and lobster and the biggest prawns I've ever seen. My sisters love thai curries. I prefer the Burmese curries. Well thats enough from me, if your friends on my facebook I have some pictures of my family on it had 1,000 photos and videos but only put about 104 on, would have taken me a month of Sundays.

Now I have made a card today for my Friend Cathy who is 60 on the 13th and I know she does not visit my blog or anyones if the truth be known. I used Craftwork cards big plain cards again, put some birds song paper which I got from W H Smiths. I think the pad is a first Edition card stock.  Cut 60 from glitter card, Flowers from WOC, celebrate is a sizzix word and the folder is a Crafts Too which I embossed and added distress inks and some silver Viva Inka paste around to give it a shine.

The inside is again another embossing folder this time a cuttlebug Happy Birthday and the sizzix pop up with the words enjoy and a heart with a little 60. I cut out one of the spellbinders shapes and put two of Lilly of the Valley sentiments.well I do hope you like this card and I hope Cathy likes it too.
Well I have chatted enough will try and be a better blogger I have so much to catch up on now.
Just a little note to one of my dearest friends. Sarah I am thinking of you too. Sarah unfortunately lost her darling mother whilst I was away and I know you would all love to send her your love and condolences.
Love and blessings to all. God bless. JO.xxxxx
