Playing With PaperTrey Ink


How exciting to finally sit down and do some stamping. Yes, I should be cleaning, but I need a few thank you cards so what a perfect excuse! I signed up for a PaperTrey Ink swap over on SCS - one group involved making a card while the other group was for backgrounds. I made extra of this background so I could make something with it! I used the set Remember for the background along with the colors Black, Pure poppy, New leaf, Spring moss, Summer sunrise and Berry sorbet...and that's just the background!!!!!! The sentiment is from Floral Frenzy and is stamped inside one of the Borders & Corners circles. I am trying to simplify a lot of my cards, limiting the amount of layers and embellishments. It's not always easy, but I held back adding more to this card!!
An update on my sweet sick cat Fred, he is eating and drinking!!!!!!!!! I am so excited!! He isn't very happy when it comes medicine time but we get it into him. He has lost a big patch of fur under his chin and chest area which simply makes him look pitiful, but he has more energy now that he's eating and that makes me happy!! Thanks for all the kind words and prayers, I really appreciate it!
