Chirrup!


The cue word at CASology this week is UP.


I've used the colours from this week's challenge at ColourQ.  It's given me an opportunity to use my Hint of Sludge Pesto ink again, as it bears more than a passing resemblance to Soft Suede.


The challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More is Addicted to CAS (anything goes as long as it's CAS).

So here's my little birdie feeling sorry for itself.


My dog is also feeling sorry for herself.  She dislocated a toe while chasing a stick before Easter and she's been strapped up and splinted ever since.  Fortunately she's not interested in chewing the strapping so she doesn't have to wear the cone of shame any more.



Here she is trying to look intelligent (pre-accident).

  6. What a beautiful dog, Shirley! I saw a dog yesterday that had on a soft "cone of shame," like a floppy sun bonnet. It was still pretty shameful, true, but somehow an improvement. I had another "why didn't I think of that" moments! Anyway, I'm sorry about the toe. It's a wonder it doesn't happen more often. We are dog-sitting the granddog again this week and he keeps falling down on the wooden floors. He's like a small colt. I prolly shouldn't let him drink from my vodka.

    Just kidding! Like I would share! Your card is the best "cheer up" card I've seen in ages. It would defo cheer someone up!!
