Back in the stamp room

I went back into the stamp room today but, as you can see, I didn't exactly emerge with any paper crafting masterpieces. In fact, I barely stamped at all. I just stamped the sentiment and the grass on this card. The flower was made using die cut bloom and accents and elements and the stem and leaves were made using the old olive poly twill ribbon. I used the signo white gel pen to add white accents to the die cut blooms. I stamped the grass using the bottoms of the candle images from the Eat Cake set. The sentiment is from Amazing to Zany. I confess this is not one of my favorite creations, but given the way this week has been going, that's not too surprising. Maybe I'll be more creative tomorrow.

Thank goodness there is much better news on the Stewie front. Today we did not administer any baby food or water through the syringe, because he ate very well on his own and kept his litter box filled as well! In fact, this morning he actually had the nerve to thump - a lot! For those not familiar with bunny behavior, they thump when they are either scared or angry! Bill and I think that he was basically warning us not to try the baby food route again. But whatever he was thinking, the fact that he had enough strength and personality to thump meant that he was doing better.

Tonight he actually ate 2 servings of parsley plus all of his nighttime green leaf lettuce and the baby carrot and the 2 additional romaine leaves I brought him, and he's makign good use of the litter box. So once again we have our hopes up that he has turned the corner and that everything may be OK after all. We're not ready to declare victory yet, but at least it seems like things are going in the right direction.

Yea for Stewie!
P.S. on the card, Diane - what did you use to be sure your polytwill stuck, especially the turned leaves? TFS
