So here we find Belassiz, sitting at her friend Chanille's, waiting for us to join them for tea. Chanille's villa is lovely, and decorated by Bernarde, not too long ago.
Belassiz is a very thoughtful feline. She loves irises, chandeliers, the finer things in life, and even though she loves Bodacious, she's not convinced that he's the perfect match for her. What if he breaks her favorite vase? Or her china teapot? Perhaps someone closer to her own species might be better. What's a cat to do???????
She's been puzzling this out over the last 42,000 hours, and is no closer to a decision that will affect her future. She's waiting for our input....hurry to the teaparty!!

Isn't 42000 hours like 5 years?? That is a long time to be indecisive... But you know what they say, "not deciding is deciding" Guess she just cannot bear to leave him after all. Sounds like Love (or codependency, but we won't go there)

Well, I am glad she is thinking about it, but not for too long though. She must know by now that Chanille is in love with Bernarde and wouldn't want that to come between them. They've been friends for what 42000 years or so.
Love your card Anne, the chandelier, the iris and cat. Beautiful put together my friend...but hey...no red. Do I need to call 911, 42,000 times. LOL

Hey Anne, you've got it all on this card. Well, not Bodacious, but that's probably just as well, you know what they say about a bull in a china shop. And maybe his absence will help Belassiz decide - it might even make her heart grow fonder, but if I were her I'd be thinking more of another cat. Love that single iris and fancy chandelier with added pearls. Just keep an eye on them - I wouldn't put it past one of the guests to see it as a way to acquire a new pearl necklace.

The dilema of the day! Take the bull by the horns or nine lives and no pre-nup! That is the question! 42,000 hours later, its quite possible the nine lives will be expired, the horns will be mounted on someone's wall in their hall of fame PBR collection and Belassiz will still be sitting by her chandolier and Iris in pure bliss! Who needs a man?
What a fun and creative card...okay, heres the deal, we need to start a side-line challenge on Teapot Tuesday! Here's the card....what's the sentiment? That'll get us to use our nogans while sippin our tea?

Wow! Pearls adorning the lovely chandelier was the perfect touch! But I do agree with Sabrina that we need to watch over it closely as we do have some doozies that come to the teaparty. Especially after drinking some bubbly. Love your card Anne! TFS!!
