Best Wishes

Wow...it sure has been a busy last few days for me....
My poor little rescue kitty "Freckles" went to the vet today for her 'spaying'.
She did quite well, but she is 'holed' up here in the craft room with me
to keep her away from the other cats until she heals.
She is not suppose to play, jump, or run for 14 days...
really....she is a very playful kitten after all!
I chose Lazer surgery for her as it is less invasive and
you would never know she had anything done the way she acts!

After I dropped her off for surgery,
I met my granddaughter and her husband and
treated them to a movie, "Miracles In Heaven".
This was a wonderful movie based on a true story
and the power of 'faith and prayer'.
I highly recommend seeing this.

So, while spending a bit of time with her I decided to 
make a fun card for the challenge at Dragonfly Journeys
which is 'Hippity Hoppity'.


And also the challenge at Pixie's Snippets Playground
which is always 'snippets'!

I have had this cute little bunny image for a few years.
It came in a little pack of journal cards with other baby animals,
though I can't remember who the maker is.

I dug in my bag of scraps (snippets) for all my papers.
I liked the little 'date' tab on the image and was thinking it would
make a great place to put a date of the recipients birthday!

I also have been trying to use up (it will take me years..lol)
some of those very first bought flowers and brads.

Awww, sweet Freckles! 14 days is a long time to keep a kitty down when they don't want to be down. Good luck! What a darling card! The image is soooo adorable and you settled it into a very pretty card. I have tons of flowers, too, and rarely use them on cards since I like to keep them mail-able. Lots of brads, too. I like how you put the "best wishes" on the leaf. Pretty paper. I love it all!

Oh my gosh - how do you explain to Freckles that she needs to take it easy :) She's a real sweetie!

Love your card, great idea for the date too!

Thank you for coming to play in the Snippets Playground!
