Good Evening 
Well what a day it's been 
The weather has been awful!
Not fit to go out so l didn't

And found this one which will be suitable for
Di's Snippets
Craftysentiments Anything-goes
l made this card for a friend who is a butcher
The image suited him down to a tee!
The designer papers are snippets 
Sentiment came from a box that l have 
Just waiting to be used

Tomorrow is supposed to be a better day
They say there's a high coming in 
Which means we could be in for some dry
And warm weather which beats the rain
Take care whatever your plans
And thank you for your visit

On a sad note
This is Fluffi 
She was a stray l tried every avenue to find her owner
To no avail they didn't come forward
Fluffi was very hungry and ferrel l already had and stil have 2 other cats
Needless to say they didn't appreciate another mouth to feed
But eventually they did get on 
Fluffi was about 14yrs old l had her for about 10 yrs
Sadly Fluffi fell asleep Saturday after learning she had Liver Cancer
