Tilda With Arrow Shows Trust

Hello sweet readers,

Have I got a story for you!

On my bathroom counter, right on the corner, I kept (the operative word is KEPT) a 32 oz. pump bottle of Philosophy's Falling in Love Body Lotion. That was (operative word is WAS) a $50 bottle of body lotion that I loved to use when I wanted to lure my DH! LOL

Last Monday night, I went to brush my teeth before going to bed when I realized that the lotion bottle was gone! I asked DH if he moved it for some reason. He said it was there over the weekend. I was quite perplexed. Where the heck did that bottle of lotion go?

Well, it seems my sweet Precious, the cat, has been a busy little girl. She's learned to clean! She's decided that she likes to have a glass of water on the bathroom counter that is just hers. When she is done drinking from the cup, she pushes it into the sink to empty it. It also seems that this clever little feline decided that my bottle of lotion was in her way when she would jump up onto the counter. So, to remedy the problem, she pushed my bottle of body lotion into the trash basket that is next to the end of the counter (where the corner is)!

As luck would have it, Tuesday is trash day, so she had to have done it over the weekend or on Monday prior to DH's emptying all the trash. DH didn't notice that this FULL bottle of lotion was in the trash basket because there were other things I had tossed into the basket which added unusual weight to the basket.

And now, my Philosophy Falling in Love 32 oz. bottle of body lotion is in the Washington County Landfill! Thanks to Precious! *sigh* So, I'm back to Clinique's Aromatics Elixir Body Lotion, LOL. Maybe Precious likes that scent better! LOL

I have a new card to share with you! I have to thank my DH for help on this as he came up with the sentiment on the front of the card. I chose to use the Tilda with Arrow stamp. Since the card will be given, most likely, to a male, I didn't want to make it too girly. I kept the colors sort of neutral, LOL! Tilda was colored with Copics.

Here she is:

Doesn't she look a bit worried? I'm not sure she is trusting Edwin! LOL Here are the inside pages:

My sweet friend, Rosie, sent me a set of stamps one of which has the XO on it. I just love that stamp! It fit perfectly onto the Magnolia tag, too! I used a yellow twill for the ribbon accents. I used a matching Magnolia border die. Love that tag and border duo!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you like my creation. I'd love it if you left a comment for me if you have the time.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge #20 - ends 1/31 - Love is in the Air

Creatalicious Challenges #30 ends 2/15 - Love

I just came across your blog 1st time today. I love your bright colors. I believe 99% of all Tilda's I see are in pastel's.
You are a very talented lady.

Hi Chris, I have a cat similar to yours, you never know what is going to be missing. I love the saying on your card. Trust is a big part of any relationship. I love the different colors on the flower tips, really pretty. Your card is really fun and interesting, beautiful.

cathylynn said...

Chris your card is GORGEOUS! Wow, WOW, WOW! Your colors are so brilliant and lively and your details are ALL amazing!!! Loved the story about your lotion and cat. Hummmm Not sure your cat was very fond of your expensive lotion. I think she preferred something more Cat Nippy a voo!! LOL Keep that in mind next time your in PETCO!
Hugs, Cathy-Lynn
