Cupcake Craft Challenge #51

I was chuffed to bits to find out this morning that I made the Top 5 on Cupcake for last weeks challenge, you can see on the left hand sidebar I'm already showing my Top 5 blinkie with pride!!

The challenge on Cupcake this week is a great sketch and colour theme, which just so happened to help me out with an idea for my step-dad's birthday card, as the colours were a perfect masculine combo.

Instead of an image I did a word cloud using Wordle, I'd forgotten all about this site until visiting someone elses blog recently who'd also used it, sorry I've forgotten who's blog it was. The dp's used are scraps from Funky Fairy papers and Basic Grey. Cut out the ovals using nesties in my bug. Ribbon and button from my stash, then added card candy to the bottom. The base card and panel are actually dark brown but the photo makes them look black.

Been a wet old day here today, bit of a come down from the lovely weather of the past few days, but it's still quite warm and muggy.
Dusty is doing much better and though not eating as much as he used too, he's heading in the right direction. The vets called today with some more results and all were ok. He finished the last of his antibiotics this morning so we just need to keep an eye on him for the next few weeks for any changes in behaviour, weight gain or if he deteriorates again. As he has perked up they don't want to put him through the trauma of any scans or further tests. So fingers crossed this was just some mystery nasty infection and nothing sinister is lurking.

Hope you are all having a good day!!!
