Rain or Shine......PP285, CTS162





A stormy weather scene was perfect to practice some watercoloring with my Zig markers. The only one under the weather around here now is our little black poodle. No one got any sleep Friday night as Abby Girl suffered with an abscess on the side of her face that grew overnight and burst in the morning. I called the vet but being Saturday the office was closed. I left a message and he called back within 10 minutes and said bring her right to my house.  He had to sedate Abby, shave her face, clean her up and start antibiotics - so much for his day off!  She is on four medications and will need extra care and TLC for a while but things are looking up. We are so fortunate to have such a caring doctor to look after all our pups.......small town life......can't beat it!





Sandy's theme for us this week at the Paper Players is Rain or Shine!



I also followed the terrific sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!




Stamp Set:  Spring Showers from Newton's Nook
DSP:  Sweet Li'l Thing from SU!

Sorry to hear about your lil furbaby, hope she's on the road to recovery and back to her old self soon! When I lived in England, there was a vet's office right around the corner and when my girl dog had surgery, he came over to our house to check on her a couple of times. I really miss that now that we've moved away from there!

This is a really cute card that will make anyone feel better. Great coloring. Send well wishes to Abby.

Linda, your vet is a keeper! Very few vets would do that, but so glad he did. Hope Abby is feeling so much better.

Great job with your zig watercoloring, btw. I love this rainy scene. It reminds me of being a child again!

Love that cute little ducky in his wellies! Perfectly coloured Linda - the umbrella looks almost 3D (paper tole maybe?) So sorry to hear about your little Abby - hope that she is now properly on the mend.

Oh this is so adorable! love the duck's boots on the skinny legs. So cute splashing in the puddles. but... So sorry about your poodle though. Always hard when pets are ill and can't speak to tell us what hurts! hugs.

Your card is so cute...I love the little duck stamp. Hope Abby is feeling better, I have an almost 14 year old black toy poodle named Alfie...his mummy's name was Abby....they are such adorable little dogs.

Linda your little duck dancing in the rain makes me smile! I have some Zig markers still untouched in their case so I thank you for the inspiration to take them out. Sorry to hear about Abby, hope she is ok now. What a cute family of pups!

Claire Broadwater said...

Could there be a card more cute than this one? I don't think so. Great little scene and so nicely colored.
