Wishing you wool - Lily-Boo

First of all, thanks to everyone who commented for the Cutting Cafe blog hop, I used random.org to pick the winner, and the number that came up was
12
that's Nannieflash - Shirley
congrats Shirley, email me and I will email the file to you. Have fun!
On to today's card, over on the Lily-boo boutique, Sam has come up with the cutest new downloads, I fell in love with this little cat and printed him out onto white card, then onto the gingham paper.....................
.................and cut out the wool out of the gingham image. The letter stickers are from a huge box by K & Co that I got on clearance somewhere, the only trouble being that it takes ages and ages to sift through and find the letters you want
Copic markers (cat)
YR23, YR13, R02, shadow prismacolour cool grey 10%
Gingham paper - making memories
brown stripe - paper place
letter stickers K & Co
pinking shears scallops - nestabilities
inking - colourbox bronze inkpad

My friend Joan from Florida is in hospital, she follows this blog faithfully, I know she will be checking in when she can, so sending this card, virtually, just for you Joan, with big get well hugs xx

I was at my doctor's surgery today, aren't they depressing places? Even if you don't feel ill when you go in there, after ten minutes of sitting next to someone who is coughing, spluttering and letting out the odd little moan of pain, you start to feel feverish and a little strange..............oh no, he's given his nasty bugs to me. No amount of logical thinking (that you cannot possibly have symptoms after such a short time) will dispel the feeling of doom. I swear, in 30 minutes, I caught whooping cough, swine flu and possibly smallpox (or maybe the unfortunate youth just had a bad case of acne). I think we should have a national campaign to make surgeries a bit more jolly. Maybe a karaoke machine in the corner, we could all sing 'I did it my way' lustily while we waited. My surgery has a system where the next patients name flashes up in lights on a board when it's their turn, perhaps in between patients, they could flash up bingo numbers, give us all cards when we go in. Excuse me now, must just go and check myself for fever/rash/hypachondria

I love this card too. The gingham ball of wool is inspired, I too have those letters and I sifted out all the black and white ones and the others are on my highest shelf and I always forget I have them. When I do get them down, I end up frustrated trying to sift through them and abandon the idea!
I like your ideas for the Doctor's surgery. As long as it was prize bingo and all the prizes were craft items!

Lovely card Enfys, so bright and cheery! Know what you mean about the docs, they should really put all the sick people in a special little sealed room and let them play bingo lol.
