Baroque hearts



At Allsorts this week Helene is right on song with Valentines as our theme so I'm thinking it might be a busy week especially as we have two great sponsors Stamp Addicts and Whimsy stamps.

I thought I would give you an update on Holly as we have had a further consultation with the AHT and they have said they think they will be able to operate when she is seven months old, so about June. Meanwhile they are going to monitor her as she is likely to need antibiotics on and off to deal with the infections caused by the bladder and associated problems.

Now on to my card which is a little bit CAS and pretty similar to another I made a few weeks ago but using different stamps and is one of the samples I made for Stamp Addicts recent TV programme. I created a mask with three hearts and sponged Pan Pastels through each then stamped the lovely Baroque style heart into each. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with a nestie and some red ribbon and little gems to finish.

Have a lovely weekend everyone and as always a big thank you for all your lovely comments which always mean so much.

This is beautiful Brenda. The heart stamp is lovely - a very elegant card.
Hope they can keep Holly's condition stable until she is 7 months. Lost track I'm afraid but I don't think it's that far off is it?

Good that you have good support for Holly & she's a fortunate little lass to be owned by you. I do hope you can manage until the operations become possible. As for your card - love the combination of red with pink & the crispness of the whole design.

Kat said...

Gorgeous Brenda, really elegant.

Fingers crossed the vets can operate when Holly's older and help her. Seems like a long while to wait but it'll probably be easier to operate when she's older. Hope she manages to keep well and not have a lot of infections while you're waiting. It's going to be difficult for you all but I know she's a much loved pet so if it works it'll be worth it.
