Balm of Friendship_Sketches in Thyme :)

Hi y’all, I have a long day.. partly blogging, partly spending half my day at the vet, sending my Meera, German Shepherd of 12.5 years to the vet for an eye and ear checked. We are trying to determine if Meera needs a cataract surgery, or at her old age, this may not be a good idea. We are scheduling to take her for further tests to determine her health condition. If she doesnt get it done, she will suffer pain at her eyes and go blind on one eye. :(. Meera has been with us for the last 12 years and 2 months. We got her from a local breeder, though her mummy is from Germany :). She is just a lovely  gorgeous dog and I love her so very much..she has been my constant companion on all these years. She is a Gentle giant :).. muah Meera..

Back to my card.. I just had to participate when I saw this sketch at Sketches in Thyme. I love it! So here is my take on the sketch.

I had used .. .Waltzingmouse stamp for this, with the coordinating Nestie dies. The strip of patterned paper is from Webster Pages. The flowers is from a die cut – Sizzlit, and I had overlap it with felt flower and some tiny yellow roses. I do so love the crinckled ribbon.. I think they are really kinda cool.

Thats all folks. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂


Home is Where the Heart Is :)

Hi peeps…… (Super Sketchy Sunday Day 273 )

I slept in late today.. it has been such a good rest after awhile. Feeling relax, hubby and I went out to a vegetarian (full.. not even eggs 🙂 ) restaurant. I had ordered a lovely garlic naan with palak paneer(ground spinach with cottage cheese.. oh yummy) and hubby ordered a more traditional dish.. yogurt rice. We are on a full vegetarian diet for a month as required by the Hindu rites with the passing of my father in law. It has rather unnerving for me, being vegetarian for the first time. I think I have even put on weight coz the need to replace meat with more carbo  :(. I do welcome the flavourful vegetarian dishes however, I still find it a challenge to be a pure vegetarian (which include using only culinary that are specifically used  for vege dishes only) and fussing  over every ingredient on the package… to be something not really my style. However, out of respect to the ritual and rites to my late father in law, 30 days it is! 🙂

Today I share with you a really simple card, based loosely on day 273 of 365cards. I am still half asleep hehehe. I love the webster pages for Christmas. I have done no stamping whatsoever.. just the basic cut and paste and a little inking, and stitching. Oh yeah love the MS snowflakes punch. But I so  Love the Santa on the hot air!  The sentiment is really light and hard to capture.. but I do so love this sentiment! and how true it is!

Have a good weekend! 🙂 Nighty nite!
