Two for the price of one!

This card is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and..
Copic Creations challenge # 10. (Use red and /or pink and hearts).

My Mojo is still on a bit of a holiday but I think I see it maybe, in the distance! LOL

This is one of my favourite stamps and a sure fire way of getting me going again.
It's by Stampendous and is called 'Sweet Delights'.
I've used SU DP on white linen CS.
Nestabilities Labels 8. My new best friend. These are the same shape as the SU/Sizzix Top Note die, but there are of course, 6 of 'em in a set and you can position them properly 'coz they haven't got middles! Cooooool!
Coloured with Copics, (or there'd be no point in entering the Copic challenge, would there). LOL
The message from another Cupcake clear stamp set. Can't remember the name of it as I've lost the packaging.
The ribbon is from The Craft Fairy.

Well, I'd better go and check up on my little 'boy'...Harvey.
He's had a really red and hot ear on and off for ages. Took him to the vet for his annual check-up in May, but they dismissed it as his ear is so clean.
Well, I'd had enough on Tuesday, so rang them and and got an appointment the same day.
We took him and and bless him, his ear was nice and red and hot for the vet to see that THAT'S not normal!
To cut a long story short, we had to take him back yesterday for investigations. He had to be sedated as he was SO stressed out at being handled by the vet! (He had to be muzzled)!
If you met Harvey, you'd know what a sweet little character he is. Poor little love.
Anyway, they took skin scrapes and blood and swabs from his ear, gave us two lots of tablets for him and they want to see him again tomorrow (Friday).
They have no idea at the moment why he's scratching so much as his coat and skin look immaculate. We will have the results next week. Cost? £290!!!! Good job he's insured! Ha Ha!
He's back home and none the worse for his adventure and he's taking the tablets like sweets!

Here's Harvey'. He's 18 months old and is only little.

Yep! He likes beds!

Thanks for stopping by. It's great to 'see' you!

Hi Viv, I love this stamp too (prob cos it's got cakes on it!) mojo seems fine to me! Thanks for the info about the nesties as I was wondering if it was like the topnote die which I wanted but don't have so now I know what I'll be buying next . . I'll blame you! Hope your lil fella gets better soon . . he looks so sorry for himself in that second photo, bless him !!

Fab card as usual Viv, an great pics of Harvey too, cant imagine him with a muzzle on, lol

As has been said before Viv, if this is what you can do when your mojo is on holiday, I am waiting with bated breath to see what you come up with when it's home again. This is just so gorgeous.
Poor little mite, I hope they soon sort out what is wrong with Harvey, I can vouch for what a sweet little fellow he is having known him since he was about 8 weeks old. Give him a hug from me Viv :o)

Hiya Viv,

Your mojo never leaves you it just goes on walk abouts occasionally! ;-))

Harvey is just so cute and he looks as snug as a bug in rug on the beds! Lets hopethat the vet soon gets to the bottom of why his ear is so red and itchy.

Love Pam xx
