Da di dum dum dum

That title doesn't mean anything, I just didn't know what to call this post ;o) Although I suppose it could be a happy tune, as Minou had to go to the vet's today to have a tooth extracted (on her birthday as well!) and she seems to have come through the anaesthetic alright, though she still has a wobbly walk and glares at me every now and then ;o) Her appetite is back and she appears to be pain-free, though that may be a different story tomorrow, as I expect she's still high on painkillers...

Anyway, on to my cards and project :D. The cards are for my mum and stepdad and my sister and brother-in-law, who are both celebrating their wedding anniversaries this weekend (one couple on the 30th, the other on the 31st). The layouts are from an old Whiff of Joy challenge (still one of my favourite sketches) and from the Friday Sketchers challenge blog.

The box is for the new Double Dutch Challenge, which is Back In Time, meaning you can take your pick from the previous 24 challenges and recreate your favourite one :D. I chose the triangle box, easy to make and such fun to give! I'm going to put a bib in this one, it's for my colleague who had a baby girl a couple of weeks ago.

Materials used:
StampAvie stamp, Papertrey Ink text stamp, BoBunny "Flutter Butter" papers, pearls, EK Success Retro Flower punches, McGill leaf punch

Hänglar & Stänglar stamp, Papertrey Ink sentiment, BoBunny "Flutter Butter" papers, pearls, Nestabilities label, EK Success Retro Flower punches, McGill leaf punch

QuicKutz limited edition bear die (how cute!) and rub-on text, Nestabilities ovals, Cloud 9 papers, pearls, ribbon

That's all she wrote folks, I'm going to keep Minou company wherever she decides to plonk herself down, and lay humbly at her feet until she forgives me for taking her to the vet ;o)
