Here is a close up pic... it is a pretty good photo but in real life I think they were still quite a bit more vibrant in colour than this. All thanks to the Twinkling H2O's.

I finished it yesterday by putting the huge amount of flowers on and I put some nice rubons on acetate and cut them out to stick out of the flowers too. I don't usually use so many flowers in one go but it sort of worked on this one. I am taking the calendar to work so I didn't want to personalise it too much. Oh, yeah, there was some sort of explosion of pearls too! I almost used two packets!
So here it is! Finally, the finished project... at least it is still in January!!

Luckily for us, we didn't have to do it if we slept through but if we woke up during the night we had to go catch her. The nurses had such a tough job, anytime they went near Kitty, she would growl or attack them. She bit Matt so badly he had to go to the doctor to make sure it wouldn't get infected. She wasn't too bad after that initial vet visit after Matt had to shake her off is hand to get her to let go but that was only for us that she was nice. She HATED the vet nurses to the point where every day when we picked her up we had to go out the back and put her in her cage for them. I can't really blame her, imaging being bashed up and trying to rest a sore body and having someone come and wake you up every hour and put a freezing cold drop in your eye for two and a half weeks! Just a day of that would wear me thin!
Her eye is all better now, her sight was only compromised just a little and you can see a cloudy patch on it but at the beginning half of her cornea had collapsed and they were worried she would lose the eye.
She was sick the other day and we took her to a new vet because we were worried they would scream and run out of the surgery when they saw us coming (they know her as 'The Kitty' now). She had to stay overnight for tests and the next day they called me to say she could come home, she needed some medicine but they weren't going to give it to her until we arrived because "she has turned into a lion.... and we can't catch her"! Oh, the joy of being a vet!

We are having some interesting weather here. There is a cyclone over "there" somewhere... it's not really affecting us but we are getting blasted with rain. If it was strong enough to cross land a bit further we might have been bothered as it would have hit us square on but it is supposed to turn off before it gets here. It has been raining constantly since Friday (it's now Monday for those in other time zones) I am not sure how I am going to go driving to work this morning. We had 160mm (6.2") of rain since midnight last night and its only 6:30am! Good thing I got Matt a weather station for Christmas... he can tell me exactly how much fell on our roof rather than just relying on the Bureau of Meterology website which measures the rain ages away!

As you can probably see from the last couple if cards, I am desperately trying to break away from using wire and flowers. I got a bit excited with that idea in the lead up to Christmas so I am doing my best to think of other ideas. So far its not going to well!! I may need to do more blogging!

This is what I came up with this week, Leo the Lion. I watercoloured him using SU Classic ink and a Blender Pen and then wen't over him with some Twinkling H2O's to really make him look more interesting.
