Rain again ...

Hi there ... 
I hope you had a good weekend ... 
I was so thrilled to see that my card Here had been picked for Top Mouse award at WaltzingMouse!!
Thank you so much ladies!!

We have a lot of rain again today .. it's expected to last a while with a whole months worth falling in the next 2 days ... We are expecting high winds too.

I had to go off to the Post Office this morning and already the roads are flooded ... I worry about my little stray cat ... Did I tell you about him? We've been feeding him for a long time now and though he is not too well ... he is improving with a little love and food. I guess he finds shelter somewhere because he doesn't come for food when it rains ... I know ... I'm just a sucker where animals are concerned ... I even gave in to my squirrel and put out some nuts for him ... In return he agreed to be photographed



Yeh I know ... rats with fluffy tails ... but who didn't shed a tear in the movie Ben?

Anywho ... I have another bracelet ... I've actually made a few more  ... I find them addictive ... the thing is I forgot to photograph one before I gave it away and the next one I sent as a gift ... so you have to wait a while to see that ... but I do have this one 


Using book pages for the beads ... actually it wasn't until after I made it that I saw This gorgeous creation by the amazing Betsy Veldman ... 


I just used beads I had in my box of broken jewellery ... and the pretty leaf is from a pack I bought a while ago ... 
I've been busy with DT projects .. so it's nice to have something different to move on to

Ok ... so that's it for now ... I'm back tomorrow for the new challenge at CCCB ... hope to see you then

Thanks for visiting and for all your encouraging comments ...
Have a good day

~ Ros ~

Beautiful bracelet, Ros, love all of your bits! I can believe you feed the squirrel, but am surprised you feed him shelled peanuts. Mine won't eat nuts, they like to shell their own sunflower seeds. Yours is way fatter than ours! They are fun to watch. Hope your weather improves to your liking soon! Have a wonderful evening.

That just shows the love you have inside you for both humans and animals Ros. Your little squirrel is so adorable, I'd feed him, too! And you're turning into one fine jewelry maker girl, love your new bracelet! Hugs, Ira

Hi Ros.
I do remember you mentioning about a cat. Don't worry! They often have more than one feeding station and they are quite good at looking after themselves. The squirel is very photogenic..I love them too...Hope you don't get washed away. We had some rain, but not really that much in comparison.
Love the bracelet!

Gorgeous bracelet....fun and creative...so good of you to feed the little stray...we have one we have been feeding for 5 or 6 years, that had a broken foot and has healed sideways...he is a feral cat, but I can get close to him...sometimes I don't see him for 2 weeks then he shows up...have a nice day and try to stay "dry"!!
