Are you superstitious?

Well, are you? I'd like to think I'm not but somehow I'm inclined to play it safe today. The past couple days have not been very good for me. My ageing little kitty-cat is poorly although she's handling it a lot better than I am. She's on the mend now but still needing plenty of TLC.  Thank you to everybody who  visited me and left sweet comments. I have not been on my blog-rounds much and will do so over the weekend. In the meantime, I managed to produce this little number. The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches #43 and the colours are from ColourQ #145. I'm also joining the good folks at Word Art Wednesday #36 with the most uplifting "sentiment" I can think of.

Here's my offering for Friday the 13th!

The papers are by Raspberry Road. Also, some vellum leftover from an earlier Christmas card.

The sentiment is by Verve, stamped with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate and cut out with Spellbinders Labels  16.

I cut the bottom edge of the card base with Spellbinders Classic Bracket Edgeabilities.

For embellies, I used a mulberry rose, some twine and a few blingy-thingies.

Some more leftover vellum  and layes of cardstock for the inside.

I'll leave you with this photo of Xiara, my kitty, blissfully soaking up the sun. Don't be freaked out by the tube. Xiara's lost her appetite following her latest chemo session and needs a little help with her meals. She's quite oblivious to the contraption which is a blessing in itself!

Xiara - meditating in the sun.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll try to do some visiting this evening. See you again soon.


p.s. Pop on over to MIM #98 - plenty of inspiration for your next card project.

  1. Beautiful card Asha and Xiara totally looks like she is enjoying the sun. Poor baby I am so sorry she is sick. :(

  2. Hi Asha! You are absolutely right.....this IS the most uplifting sentiment ever. There is no better news in the world that this very fact. I wish everyone could hear it, believe on it, and let it change their lives (as well as their eternal destiny). Thanks SO MUCH for sharing this with us in this week challenge at Word Art Wednesday. What a blessing to have you joining in our challenges at Word Art Wednesday. We'd be so honored to have you continue to play along each week and share more of your beautiful art with us.
