Congrats on your BEM!!

My DT creation this week is for a very special lady. Those of you who are regular visitors to my blog will know, Nige, myself & our youngest Katie volunteer at the local wildlife & raptor rescue centre 'Gentleshaw' well this card is for the boss lady, Jen!
Jen, is just awesome the lengths she goes to, to help an animal is far past what she should do. She even takes poorly beasties home to recuperate. I have seen pictures of her sofa covered in bird poop, from a baby owl (that would have died in the wild) she is hand rearing...Jen doesn't bat an eyelid!!!!
 I have seen video proof of a baby emu racing around her house with her springer spaniel Emily!! Just one awesome lady. Well this year at the Queens 90th birthday, she was awarded with a BEM!!! We are all so proud of her & I just wanted to let her know. I appreciate her from a personal point of view. If it wasn't for Jen, I wouldn't have my gorgeous fluff but Nico. So this make is to say congrats & thank you to my gorgeous friend Jen xxxx

My beautiful boy Nico xx

Fabulous card and such a beautiful image! Thanks for sharing it with us at Cards in Envy. And on a personal note--Nico is beautiful! We rescued 5 baby skunks a few years ago and took them to a rescue place to care for them. They are so cute. Smelly but cute. :)
