the sumo cat is visiting...

Good morning everyone how are you all?...we took our beautiful Daughter and her other half to the airport and all went well although they were so excited it was infectious... you wouldn't believe she has travelled the world with us since she was six months old would you lol...while we were at the airport we got a text from my Sister saying my Dad wasn't going to England as he was very overtired which is very worrying, he says hes fine and just wanted to spend some time at home but I have a strange feeling its something else, you know when we women get those feeling don't you...I hope hes ok and isn't feeling ill or anything...we have our Daughters 'sumo' cat staying for a few days while they are away, I have never seen a bigger more vocal cat than Nala, she is so noisy, I think shes trying to communicate with me lol...she is so big she almost fills my back door mat sitting waiting for her owners to come home...I will take a photo of her for you to see she is huge...right now onto my card for today which is using this oldie but goody long uninked sweetie Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie, she is called Sitting and is on sale atm too...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her dress with one of the two lush Kars 12x12 papers I used for my card...I finished with a huge organza bow and some lush pink pearls...I'm entering this for the Dynamic Duos challenge and the Allsorts challenge...I'm hoping my Dad comes home today so I can check for myself hes ok and maybe get a bit of shopping done for him and of course he can get his Fathers Day card too...whatever your up to today I hope the weather is better for you, its been tiddling down for 24 hours here

Another stunning card Mina, that GG is my fave of all of them, and your paper piecing is beyond compare m'love. I hope dad is ok and he's not hiding something, perhaps he's just not been sleeping well while away. And can't wait to see a "sumo" cat, Vince will be thrilled to think there is one bigger than him out there. Hugs Sxx
