a Lil Bit Grumpy.
I have coloured her with promarkers, I cut her out and adhered her with silicone glue.  I have used my new 6x6 grand spot embossing folder on the base green card, I then used my new Cheery Lynn square die cut which has also been embossed, finally I added some pearls, flowers and butterfly.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I do hope that you will come join us this week at The Paper Shelter we would love to see you all.
I have started visiting all my blogging friends and I am so happy to see all your beautiful creations, I still have more to visit and see but I will be around later
This afternoon I am taking little Jess to the Vets to be checked out and wormed. She is a little darling and settling down nicely, she is a feisty little girl who seems to be afraid of very little, lol.
She does love to lie by me on the sofa while I am on the computer and at this moment she is asleep.
Once again many thanks for all you wonderful messages.
love & hugs to all.

Here is my DT project using papers from the new
Christmas Traditions set
I have made not only a card but my first ever cracker, I made it using the Hougie Board, I added organza bows and a matching Kanban image as used on the card.  For the card I have used silver textured mirri card the circles I cut using my X-Cut circle cutter, I added some sequins and a green flower bow, the embellishment in the centre is an earring that was given to me by someone who was disposing of them I knew they would come in useful, finally I added a Kanban sentiment.

I would like to enter my project into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting I do hope that you will come and join us this week at Bearly Mine Challenges.

Hi all, I am a tad late with posting my DT card so big apologies.
The challenge this week at
Here is mine using the image from sheet no; 376 
I have used promarkers to colour this beautiful image, the colours are my all time favourite, Pink and Brown, the papers are from Bearly Mine Designs (link in sidebar).
I have used gold textured mirri card to mount the papers and image onto, I used a SU punch down the side of one of the card and a corner punch to round off the corners.  I have added pearls and a ribbon/flower embellishment.  The ribbon I tied myself and teased it into a rosette style flower, I added a large pink flower for the centre topped with a gold punched circle and pearl.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Before I go I just have to say how overwhelmed I am with all the awesome comments that I have received for both the loss of my beloved Polo and the arrival of tiny Jess.
I have shed so many tears reading them all plus the wonderful e-cards and e-mails.  I will never be able to tell you how much you all mean to me, the support, friendship, kindness and encouragement have made me feel full of love and hope.
I want to reply to you all which will take time so I just wanted to let you know that I have not ignored you but my eyes are quite sore and red with all the tears that I have shed.
I love you all you are all very special to me, Polo and Little Jess.

Hi all, today I would like you all to meet my new little baby Jessie.
My son bought this little lady home to me yesterday, she is an 8 week old Jack Russell, she is soooooo tiny.  She has more markings than my darling Polo had but she does have a black spot on her tail/bum just like my beloved Po.

I have given her my Steiff Bear to keep her company in her dog bed until I can get more stuff for her.
My mum has fallen in love with her and spends a lot of time holding her while she sleeps, it is a good job that mum only comes to stay at weekends or I think Jess would think that it is my mum who is her new owner, lol.
I have been grieving for my darling Po so much and I believe a part of me died inside when he had to leave me.
I know that Jess will be spoilt rotten and receive so much love that it will be tumbling over her.
Once again I would like to thank all of you for your wonderful comments they have really helped me so much.
I am hoping to start blogging again later today and will be taking time to visit you all, until then have a lovely weekend.
