I got my housework taken care of this morning and had the afternoon to play. I made two cards, both for Card Swap's Summer's End Crop.
One challenge was to make a card using only white. I used two different embossing folders, snow white embossing powder and Nestabilities die cuts. I also used my SU 2-step bird punch, some ribbon and fabric flowers with pearl centers.
The other card I made follows a sketch challenge. I used a vintage image from Digital 2 For Tuesday and the sentiment is one of my own. I used Nestabilities die cuts and an EK border punch.
I said I was going to share some happy news with you today, didn't I? But really I'm very tired. I should go straight to bed. I can always tell you tomorrow or the next day, or the day after that.
How be I just give you the first part of the news? Then maybe tomorrow I will tell you the rest.
Some of you may remember that I had a foster rabbit here for the last month or so. I named her Opal and was trying to find a home for her. Last week someone took her, but returned her a few days later as it didn't work out. It turns out they brought her back the very same day that Neelix passed away.
Though she does not normally like to be handled, Opal let me hold her for over an hour that evening while I cried. I was actually thinking at that time that maybe I would keep her.
It turned out that was a one-time thing. I came to the firm conclusion today that Opal does not want to be a pet/house rabbit. I called up a lady with a small rabbitry and she said she would take Opal. She has a really nice little barn with good natural light and ventilation. Everything looked clean and in good repair and all the rabbits looked bright and content.
Opal settled into her new cage very well and she seemed much more relaxed than I have yet seen her. She let her new owner pet her, without flinching and seemed very much at ease. I think she liked having the other rabbits around her.
Well, that is it for Part One of my happy news. I am off to bed now.
