Tags,and a Broken Toe

Morning guys,well,Alice is not well,oh my heart sank on Friday when she was outside,and ran after a cat,she came in really quickly,bleeding all ever the place.
So it was a rush to the Vets,me in tears as it is only as you know a short while since I was last there.
Anyway after examining her,they had to take away part of her claw,and then realised she has broken or fractured her Toe.
Now Alice has bad bones,which she has had from the age of 2,they have sent her home with anti-biotic s and ,pain relief.  Bless her she was so good,never bit them at all just weed everywhere.

If she is no better in a week I have to take her back for an operation,which I really hope wont come to that as I just can't bare it. Alice has become even more,attached to me,if that is ever possible,she will not leave my side at all and she is so loving,bless her.
As you can see as I am typing this she is sitting at my side,
Anyway here is some tags I have made,one is a book which dear Tracey sent me and I have decorated it with bits and bobs.

Elements used,
Lost and found sticker book Tim Holtz,
Anna Griffin sewing stamps.
Tim,s paper,and 7 gypsies.
Distressed edges with old paper distress ink.
You can buy the lost and found sticker book,say stickers they are made from very strong card love them,at Michelle's,along with lots of other Tim goodies.
The link to her shop is on my side bar.
Right now off to take care of Alice will try to get too see you all later take care everyone,hugs Cherylx
Oh thanks also for my new followers,welcome.
Oh if you have not entered my candy the link to it is HERE

Thank you so much for your 'book card instructions Cheryl, and for visiting my blog. Alice is adorable, we got our very first pooch 'Ellie' nearly 18 months ago now and she has completely taken over our lives, and I could not bare it, if she was hurt, so i understand how you must be feeling. I hope she doesn't need the 'op' and that she improves quickly. Oh nearly forgot I was visiting to look at your crafty creations lol WOW they are amazing!!!!! I will be back to look around some more Tomorrow, Hugs Lou xxxx

Mary J said...

Poor Alice! Ops are just awful - our Labrador Poppy had her first hip replaced at just 1 years old and then the other a year later. It's always so worrying but they are hardy things and just get on with it rather than complaining (like humans!). I have everything crossed for her Cheryl!

Gorgeous tags - love the inky vintage look!

Oh Cheryl I am so sorry to hear about Alice I really hope and pray that she will be OK, you have gone through so many rough times lately and with losing Rex only a short time ago I can feel your pain and heartbreak. Like Alice my little Po is cuddled up in the sofa beside me while I am on my laptop, they really want to be near you don't they.

I must tell you that I love your new blog look and that banner, also the tags you have made they are so creative and vintage, I totally adore them, nearly as much as I do you dear friend.
Love & hugs to both you and Alice
