Oooooooooooh Ruby.......

Hi All

Just a quickie from me tonight as I'm in a rush to get ready..... off out to my Jam and Jerusalem evening... (otherwise known as the WI where there hasn't been any sign of jam OR anyone singing Jerusalem!)

Anyway.. my card for today is one I just fancied making....  I looked through my 'to be used' stash (come on, admit it, we all have one!), and Ruby from The Greeting Farm just jumped into my hand!  How could I ignore her with those gorgeous eyes? 

I used My Minds Eye Lime Twist papers with some added Bazzill - some put through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The flowers are from Cheery Lyn - Miniature Rose die.... some gems and a PC generated sentiment cut by hand finished her off .... ooooh and I forgot, there's a fence in there from Memory Box.....  though can't remember the name of it... and I'm downstairs now, so no time to rush back upstairs to check.

So hope you like!! 

Update on foot:  It now no longer resembles a balloon.... and I continue to take those yucky antibiotics....  I promise, I do.....  though I tend to forget to do it an hour before food or on an empty tummy.... I mean, seriously, when is ANYONE's tummy empty????? LOL!

Big hugs to all and thank you so much for visiting and commenting.... it makes my day.

  2. What a cutie Ruby is! And what lovely papers and colours you've used - delicious!

    I know just what you mean about antibiotics! I hope the foot goes on getting better.

    Also, my hubby claims there's a GOTH branch of the WI - I wonder what they sing?! Have a good evening.

  9. She sure is a cutie, I have that same die too (I think it is just called "Wrought Iron Fence") and I keep telling myself that I should use it more. I buy all these little dies and then just use my nesties. Hope the foot is better soon, have fun at your "J&J" evening !! LOL

    Sorry to hear about your foot my FIL had cellulitis very badly in his legs, it can be nasty.
    Great holiday pics and not bad parking really, my SIL would be impressed lol as he is in the Antibes quite often with 'Daddy's ship' as his boys call it, wish it was.
