Update on Chloe

Little Chloe was spayed yesterday. She was very docile when I picked her up late yesterday. She didn't sleep well and neither did we!!!!
Today she looks much better, is eating and getting into things!

Kitchen Reno Update

Things are going well thank goodness! I did the last of the indoor sanding yesterday. Now that that is done I can start to paint. The ceiling is primed and ready. The upper cabinets and doors are primed and ready too. I just have to get the paint this weekend when we go to the city.
The lower cabinets are all stripped and sanded. I still have some of the doors to do. I hope to finish them on Friday. Once they are done then I can varnish them.
I will be so glad when this is over!!!!! Pictures to follow.

Ink: black
Accessories: CB embossing folder, brads, corner round punch, white gel pen, paper piercer, SU markers, primas

I figured after uploading the last card I better post a picture of my baby Chloe!!! After having to put my 14 year old Siamese to sleep last October I didn't think I would ever be able to love another cat. Three months later I fell in love with Chloe. She actually picked me by trying to grab me as I walked by a cage with 5 kittens inside!
Isn't she a sweetheart!

Glamour Puss!

I love this new stamp set I got from http://www.pinkcatstudio.com/!

I am a cat lover!!!!!! How can you tell!!!!!

This site has many great sets!!!!

I am planning on sanding them outside if it ever warms up enough today!!!!! Monday got to 27C here and today it is only 13C!!

Cuttlebug Build a Flower

Another card today! I just got this new Cuttlebug set called "Build a Flower. This is such a cool set!
There are no limits except your imagination!

It's April!!

I can't believe it is April already!!!!! Time is sure flying by!!!

I have started doing my list of "Things to Do" as far as home improvements go. It feels good to be back into the swing of things; unlike last year where I couldn't do much.

I am still going to be finding time to work on cards though! LOL! A girl still has to have fun!....right? LOL!

This is a new set I got last week. I love this one. It is very simple to color. Great for a fast card!
