Sorry I am late in posting my card this week.  I had to take the dog to the vets this week as not only has he suddenly gone blind with cataracts but it turns out that he has diabetes as well which is the cause of the cataracts.  Not suprising really as he is nearly 14 years old.  Not only is he feeling rather lost and confused with the blindness but the poor thing now has to be injected with insulin twice a day.  Guess who has to do that???  He had his first doses yesterday and is already feeling a lot better and perkier.  Once we have stabilised the diabetes we can sort out his eyes.  Anyone got a spare £3,000?  I couldn't believe how much the operation is.  I suppose we could always get him a guide dog, saw one on the TV once.  Anyway, you came to see my card not my rambling....

It's another Thursday which means a new challenge at Lili's Little Fairies.  This week we want your creations to be 'Bright And Beautiful'.  A nice easy challenge for you again this week.

I have made an easel card featuring 'Mr Snowman' who I have coloured with promarkers and added lots and lots of glitter.  All the snowflakes have been die-cut and have gems added to them.  On the base I have added a punched border and topped it with sparkly ribbon, snowflakes and a heat embossed sentiment.  Hope you like it, thanks for looking.

Hi Christine - oh now that is super cute! Lovely sparkles and great snowflakes.

Sorry to hear about the poor wee doggy - hope the injections aren't going too badly for him. We've got cats, can sympathise with the vets' costs!!

Thanks for joining in with us at the Divas this week,
