Get well soon Stephen

The sun is back not quite so hot but lovely blue skies again, and we might even find it continues until after the Bank Holiday on Monday.   And tomorrow I get my home back, it has been lovely having Bob (formally know as Mark and whose next name will be Dingbats) here, well most of the time.  But it was just for a couple of weeks, it's been 3 months and I do miss having the place to myself.

Cats will miss him especially Harley who thinks Bob is the best thing since tinned cat food.   For those concerned about these things Harley does not get tinned cat food, but has a healthy dry food diet.

Before Christmas my hairdresser friend had what was initially thought to be a stroke, it was down graded to a migraine but now 5 months on he has been told it is some sort of brain damage.   I have been intending to send him a card but just had not got round to it.    I suspect getting one now will come as a complete surprise and I hope it will cheer him up.

Another stamp from many years ago this one marked Whipper Snapper Designs, Inc.  Don't think I've heard of them either before or since.   A dark blue mat on top of white card and a piece of DP cut down to to fit inside the blue.   Topper coloured with felt pens and fussy cut tit has been stuck down on double sided sticky pads.  Below a rectangle of shadow stamped card over stamped with the sentiment, the sticky pads were slightly shorter allowing me to sit the sentiment under the dog giving him somewhere to "sit".

I'm sharing this card with
