Shoes shoes shoes and a pants weekend

We had great plans to get the last of the furniture for the craft room this weekend in and fitted but sadly my Maddison took poorly with a pyometra and had to be rushed into the emergency vets yesterday.  I’m sat here waiting for the vet to ring to see how she has been overnight.  I so hope she’s doing a lot better

Here’s a pic of mammy’s girl taken a couple of years ago. Get well soon lovely girl xxx


So, all my plans for getting ahead with cards this weekend went right out the window so I am once again resorting to a card I made a while back using one of the sweet little girls from Lili of the Valley, Emma Shoes.  Hmmmmm now who does she remind me of?  I bet a lot of us could identify with her.


I totally adore these Echo Park Springtime papers, the colours are so soft and pretty and perfect for girlie cards.  The gingham ribbon, blooms and roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The doily behind the image is a MFT Die-Namics doily die.

I’ll be back later with this week’s Magnolia candy winner.




  1. Hope she will be all better real soon
    Lovely card

  2. Hope she gets better real quick. Love the card, such a cute image.

  6. Hi Bev, how upsetting for you and your little girl, sending doggy hugs from my two little ones and hope that she recovers quickly and is soon back to being her usual self. It is so hard when they cant tell you how they feel, and I fully understand how things go out of your mind when things like this happen. Will say a prayer for her today. Hugs - Debbie T
