Gremlins, Chocolate and Pets Today!

Hello friends
The computer Gremlin has nearly been banished...it is now just being fickle!
In my mind it looks just like this....

 Today I thought I would feature another chocolate bar wrapper,
I created this one last year but I cannot recall if I shared it with you - it is my favourite wrapper to date.
Layered Poinsettia, Lace Doily Accents and Labels Twenty-Two.
 The paper is Cosmo Cricket - Odds and Ends, not actually a Christmas paper but it works.
 Now to Pet Gallery.
I would like to introduce you to Tilly Philpott DOB 11/07/09


Tilly lives with 'Cornish Emma' who describes her as a "fiery tortieshell".

Before Tilly came to live with Emma at the age of 6 months she had already had 6 homes! Emma was obviously lucky number 7.   Having had so many previous homes it was understandable that Tilly was nervous of boxes, she associated them with moving home.  Emma cured this by regularly putting Tilly in a box to visit her parents' farm which Tilly loved, in time she didn't fear boxes.

Tilly has two sides to her nature - loving and wild.  Loving when Emma is unwell but can also growl like a dog.  Tilly is a crafter in training - a liking of ribbon and leaving paw prints on cardstock!
 
 Emma explains that Tilly is a little camera shy and this is the only decent photo she has of her so 
she grabbed the opportunity to make it into a digital scrapbook page detailing Tilly's dual personality.
 Tilly - you are lovely and congratulations on being the first pet in the
Hope and Chances Pet Gallery - a little something is on its way to you!
Don't forget if you would like your pet to feature send a photo along with some details
christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk
I will be back tomorrow...with or without my Gremlin!
Take care friends.

Well Chrisine I would never have believed a bar of chocolate could look so elegant. It would be a shame to destroy that lovely wrapping to get the chocolate. Good for those on diets. Tilly's eyes are so blue, what a lovely story and so glad she has overcome her fears.

Morning,
Really liking the new chocolate wrapper. It is really festive and each would be unique.
Can i pose a question - would it be possible to give a more comprehensive guide to how some of your creations are made sometimes just looing at them is not clear - it is just a suggestion.

Morning Christine, Hopefully your gremlins will decide to 'leave home' very soon.
Your chocolate bar wrapper is fantastic, I love the papers they work so well for christmas, and it goes without saying, the poinsettia die is my most favourite of all time, looks so different depending on the paper used.
Tilly is absolutely gorgeous, I love her and she has adapted so well with Emma's loving care.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine, firstly Tilly and I are honoured to be the first on your pet gallery, you have written her story so well, thank you from us both (altho i did tell Tilly she doesn't look that impressed!!) And to all your followers mentioning her blue eyes - yep she has massive round blue eyes which make all our hearts melt and then the claws come out!! lol

Beautiful chocolate wrapper, love the papers and the lacy border works so well, Im def going to try these wrappers as it turns a choc bar into something really special.

Hi Christine,
Chocolate wrappers, lovely idea. MyGrandsons love white chocolate(just like Grandma)at Christmas I always buy them a large bar each and wrap in plain Christmas paper. Now,I'm going to jazz them up like you do!
What a lovely kittie Tilly is and soo lucky to have a patient, understanding,caring 'Mum'.
Hoping to sort out my pet photos to send at some point. I'm not much of a wizzkid when it comes to the computer, but I'll have a play and see what I can do.Everyone was so kind with their thoughts and comments four weeks ago when I lost Brenig and I would like to share his memory by sending in a photo (hope thats ok with you Christine)Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x
