Basic Grey Challenge

Good evening everyone,

Hasn't the weather been close these last few days? We had quite a downpour earlier today but not for very long.

I have had my daughter and grand-daughter here today so that has been lovely - if not a bit tiring!

Well the day is getting closer - Friday 5th August!!!

That is my birthday and this year is quite a milestone - I will be 60. I really can't believe it because most of the time I just don't feel any different than I did at 21.

I will be having a little get together on Saturday with my family and a few of my husband's family. My niece will arrive on Saturday from Australia. She came over last summer but actually went back on my birthday.

I doubt I shall get much chance this week for making cards so here is a card I made at the end of last week but have only just taken a photo of.

I made it following the sketch from the Basic Grey Challenge.

Here is the sketch

and here is the card.

I think the papers are from the Wisteria pad and of course the image is from LOTV. I love the colours.

I am also entering it in this week's Papertake Challenge - which is anything goes

Allsorts Challenge - free and easy

and Totally Papercrafts which is bling it up

Tomorrow will be my Son and Daughter-in-Law's Wedding Anniversary - I hope it does not turn out to be a sad day for them because there oldest cat is very seriously ill and we just don't know how long she will last. Poor little George.

My daughter-in-Law had George before she met my Son and then they got adopted my a black cat called Mog and unfortunately she died just before Christmas last year.

When they moved house about 6 years ago they got adopted by a kitten who they named Scamp and it looks like she will be the only one left shortly.

Hope I haven't depressed any cat lovers - enjoy the rest of the evening.
