Passion For Markers - Feed The Birds

 Hello and welcome. Hope you are having a good week.

I am still trying to prevent my dog from jumping up onto chairs and the garden. He isn't a happy bunny. Today he is missing the noise from his best mate Rory but he will be back Thursday to play so maybe a little extra quiet might be a good thing. Oh I have my Covid boaster on Thursday hope it doesn't make me ill did make my arm sore last time a slight temp. Friday boiler service so can't afford to be visiting the vets again with him.

Any way today starts a new challenge at Passion For Markers

we are sponsored by Polkadoodles 

Our theme for this week picked by Lisa is Food & Drink

For my card I have used one of our sponsors images called feeding the birds’)

I coloured my image wit Promarkers & copic added some diecuts sent to to me from a friend many moons ago put away and lost but recently found.
Some fibres from stash and DP is from hobbycraft or the works but purchased last year
some glitter but doesn't show sorry
Sentiment is a very old docrafts stamp from when I started.
Well hope that you can come and play along remember to say what markers you are using and it doesnt have to be a Christmas card. Pop over and check what the girls have made and how Julie has used the same image.
Thanks for stopping by

Crafty Catz challenge - ATG with Last Minute Manda

 Hello so sorry this is late I have had such a horrid few days I  took my dog for a groom a few weeks ago and since he hasnt been too good. Thinking it was just a new groomer and his ears where sore and that was it. Well last week he started not eating much and being slightly sick. But he was still his bubbly self. Think he has just eaten something that upset him was keeping fingers crossed.

Well Thursday night he had a last minute wee and a poo at 10.30 and bed. I woke to him at 7am shaking and just lay there. Quick ring round and vets not open till 9am I was in panic it brought back all my worries with my Sheltie. My son called with his son and took the day off as i couldn't look after little one and also tookme to vets . He had to have a scan xray and then they would ring me but looks like a operation. Well yes he had eaten a barbecue stick and it was poking out each side of his gut. So no going out for 2 weeks no running round no jumping up and soft food for few days. Worse is he has a cone of shame. Well he is home and, on the mend, if he doesnt burst the dissolvable stitches

So with all that I forgot to post my dt post for Crafty catz.

Our theme this week is ANYTHING GOES and the optional for fun twist is Make it Cute

We have a fab new sponsor
