Aloysius - Thursday 12th September

Good Morning Friends,

Well there will be tears this morning when we drop Penny, Lacey, Bella and Cara off at the bird farm for their 'holiday'..we had another very last minute problem with Penny, which made has it even worse and we have had to arrange with them to split them up in case of's not ideal but hopefully if just she and Bella are together until things settle it will be okay..fingers crossed :( at least they are somewhere where they know a lot about poultry.

Later today we are off to London to stay near Heathrow overnight before leaving tomorrow's card is one I made over the summer, using one of my favourite stamps from Indigo Blu - Aloysius - based on the bear in Brideshead Revisited,

It's a simple card: I stamped Aloysius and matted and layered a kraft card blank with an inked page from an old book (sadly not Brideshead!)  and a sheet I'd stamped with a crackle image in gold ink.
I tied  big bow around the card and tucked Aloysius behind before adding a die cut flourish and tattered floral die cut from a book page.

Keep looking friends, I have lots of scheduled posts!

Love and Hugs,
Carole X


  1. Hi Carole,
    Great card. Hope you have a good flight and enjoy your visit.

  2. I love this image - he looks just like my bear Fenton! such a great little bear. Have a good flight and hope you enjoy yourselves. Hope Penny is OK on her hols. I could guarantee one of our cats would be a little bit 'off' just before we would go on holiday - then when we came home after worrying, they would look at us as if to say - what were you worrying about?????
