A quickie card & a new family member.......come see

Hello all my lovely jubbly peeps. Havnt really done any crafting this weekend except a quick card last for my son today Megan wanted to give him a card to mark their anniversary of when they met...Awwww. So I scoured & found some fabbylicious images.............I will show you that in a mo.
Yesterday afternoon some friends came for a few hours which was fantastic. We have been friends for about 14 years only we dont see them as much now cus they had to move further away due to work commitments. We had such a laugh that I wished I had gone the shop first for some Tenna Lady he heeee.

Anyway I will show you the quickie card I made. My son's nickname is 'Cookie Monster' which will explain the card..............

This is 'Fluffy' aka ?Cookie Monster lol......available from Pollycraft of course I had to colour him blue lol. Actually I've never coloured a fluffy monster before.......but as they say you can only get better lol.
You dont want to know how many more images I brought from there yesterday lol.

Lush paper is Echo Park. The ribbon is just plain white grosgrain which I coloured with a promarker, yeah borrowed it off hubster cus didnt want to waste the ink in my copic lol. The bunting & tag is from my Whimsy die which I got from Bunny Zoe's & the tag stamp is the same & I wrote 'You & Me' on.
The stitching I did by hand with Anchor cross-stitch thread.......bout time I used it its been neglected for sooooo long lol. The 2 glass pebbles are decoration on my shelf in the living room & I pinched 2 to enter the recycle challenge at Pollycraft again lol. 6x6 scalloped card is from Crafty Emma's which is also where you can get the Echo Park paper.

Now I did mean to post this this afternoon but we went to Sunderland to collect the new member of our family. Now these are my favourite EVER animal, I used to have one years ago but sadly she died.....darn that old age!!!!
Meet 'Bailey'

He is a red & white Boxer & is 15 weeks old..............isnt he just gorgeous. Let me tell you for those that dont know no matter what dog breeder you speak to if you ask what is the best dog to have with children they will all say 'Boxer' cus they really are fantastic, Natalie loves these dogs & I really miss the one we had so hubster brought me this little fella today.............

Well he is not really little lol............ He loves the camera & decided after a few shots he would like to show off lol..............

That coat is just so shiny & so soft I just want to stroke him all the time lol.
Well this is the newest member of our family & now I'm off to bed as I've got to be up early to take Ben to work cus he needs a new brake switch for his car, the brakes work but he's not getting a brake light on so better not risk getting pulled & getting a fine & 3 points on his licence.

So my lovelies I will say nighty night see ya all tomorrow & thank you sooooooooo much for all your comments on my CES post yesterday they really did mean a lot.

MMWAH squishy hugs to you all xoxoxoxxo
Challenges I'm entering.........

Unknown said...

Your card is sooo cute! Love it! I love your Boxer too! My son has two, Dozer and Sissy, and you are right they are wonderful with kids. We had one when my kids were young, her name was Hannah Jane, she was best buds with the kids. She was protective to strangers, didn't like men in uniform, only women in uniform could get by her :O) She was such a good dog. We lived in the country and a pack of dogs attacked and killed her.
