Flying High Doggie

Good evening all.

It was much cooler today (insert happy face) and it looks like my son is finally on the road to recovery. So that means I can go back to finishing my course in Derby.  

As promised here is a picture of the new baby in my house. Don't be fooled by her cute appearance - she's a poop machine lol. But we all love her to bits and she's jumping up on the sofas to be near us.

So I decided to make a card and enter it into the Tiddly Ink DT call. I love Tiddly Ink and have lots of their images but like so many other things in life I don't always get a chance to play with them.

This little doggie is one of my favourite.

Goodness, can the day get any better.... the sun is shining, Britain have a Wimbledon champion (after 77 years) and music is playing?!  Well, there are a few black clouds in my perfect day - my son is very poorly with chest-infection and I have had to stay home to look after him (I don't mind, he's still my baby at 17) and my printer has decided to die and I've had to order a new. But I am feeling great :).

Hauntingly Delightful

Ok - so I know we are in the middle of summer and this looks very much like a Halloween card but the thing is, that some of the boys in Phoebe's class is into all this spooky stuff. And since she's going to a "Wizard and Witches" party next week I thought I would make this for the birthday boy.

I love There She Goes Stamps and I finally got some (and not the last ones either). I am going to enter this into the tsg challenge Case a Trensetter and I choose Wendy P.'s card HERE. I love the simple lay-out, colours and the stamped background. I didn't want to duplicate the card so ended up doing my own twist (hope that it's ok).

Supplies: Hauntingly Delightful stamp set; Card-stock; Pebbles Designer Paper; Ranger Distress Ink Dusty Concord; Promarkers
