Thinking of You


Well my mojo has definitely gone now my poor little parrot Toby is in the vets for five days. Then he can come home for five days and then has to go back for five days.Somehow he has got metal poisoning but for the life of us we do not know how as nothing has changed in 16 years. When he is allowed home we are supposed to be going to Paris and he was supposed to be going on his holiday now we do not know what is happening and are taking each day as it comes.The house is certainly very quite without him.
This is a card I made very quickly for a friend who had an operation today. It also fits into a new challenge blog Stampin' for the weekend. Their first challenge is purple and yellow.Image is from Stamposaurus.

Oh my goodness, poor Toby it must be such a worry for you, now wonder your mojo has disappeared. With all the worry you've had to contend with we really do appreciate you taking part with our brand new challenge, you have created a gorgeous and cutie card, that image is so adorable and coloured in beautifully too. I hope your friend makes a speedy recovery. Thank you once again for taking part and hopefully you'll be able to join in with many future challenges over at SFTW. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and good luck, all the best with Toby too xx vicki xx

Awe what a cute little elephant Glenda, he will brighten your friend´s day for sure. Love your colouring of him and that paper is gorgeous. Hope your parrot recovers soon, must be costing you a fortune and I do hope you manage your trip to Paris.

Oh Glenda, sorry to hear about Toby. I know how much you must be missing him, these pets of ours are like little children and it's terrible when they get poorly and even worse when they aren't at home with us. I do hope you get to take your trip to Paris though while you have the chance. I love the little ele, I have this one too and have used him once, he's a little cutie, and you have colored him so beautifully. Also love the backing paper you have used.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge. Good luck and we
hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a great weekend.

Oh, this is so cute. Sorry to hear about your parrot, vets know a lot more than they used to about avian problems but it's still all a fairly new thing isn't it? We used to have a Lesser Sulphur, always worrying when she was off-colour...
