With Thanks

Hi all I would like to thank all my friends for the wonderful Christmas and New Year wishes also for the beautiful Christmas cards I received, they made the holiday that bit special.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and I would like to wish everyone a truly Happy New Year.

I have had a quiet Christmas, finally managed to get my mojo back and made this card for the following challenges:
For my card I used 3 designs of paper from the new Basic Grey, Little Black Dress paper pad, I added the TH Clock face die cut which I added some silver glitter, the ribbon is from SU, I stamped Tilda with Momento Black Tuxedo ink and coloured with Copics, I added silver glitter to her hair ribbon and wings, I added some black gems and pink roses.  I used a small clear 'thanks' stamp which I inked with Momento Black Tuxedo ink and stamped around the edge of the card.
I hope that you like my card I will see you all later hugs to all.

Tilda in Black and White

Hi all first may I thank you with all my heart for your concern for Polo, I am one very happy lady as I think the new tablets the Vet gave me for Po are beginning to work, thank the Lord.
I actually managed to make a card last night for some challenges, I am so behind with making Christmas cards that I have been very naughty and bought some, that is the first time in several years that I have done such a thing. 
Here is the card that I made which I would like to enter into the following challenges:

I added some silver sparkly snowflakes, black and white gems, lace, pink metallic elastic twine and bow. 
The above picture shows a sideways view of the card. 
The letters of 'Joy' I stamped with black momento ink, I then stamped a snowflake onto the letters cut them out and glazed them with Glossy Accents.

Below is a picture of my handsome boy Polo, I took this yesterday and he is able to stand now which is such a huge relief and my prayers have been answered. 
I have started to do my commenting but it will take a few days to catch up but I am so enjoying seeing your beautiful creations, they are giving me some much needed inspiration, I have missed you all and I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends, thank you all so much.

Painful Times

Hi all I wanted to let you know why I have not been posting anything other than my DT work.  
My little dog Polo is not good, he has been suffering for quite a while with his back legs but now his front ones are also affected, which means that he is practically unable to walk.
His mind and looks are just the same, he looks no older, his eyes are bright and alert, so is his mind but his body is being taken over by the age process. 
He is now 16 1/2 yrs of age and I may have to let him go very soon.  It is breaking my heart, I have no will to create any cards or do crafting of any sorts. To be truthful nothing else matters to me at the moment than my Polo, I have battled in my mind and heart, I don't want to let him go, I expect a miracle to happen and that he will be ok but somehow deep down I know that there will be no miracle.
I know that some of my friends in blog land have recently lost their own beloved animals and I know that some of you will understand how I am feeling at this time.
I will be scheduling my DT work and hopefully comment as and when I can.
I will say bye for now, hugs to all.,
