Not so happy birthday

Hello everyone  I just thought I would quickly pop this post on here.
My fabby hubby has brought me for my birthday 10 Bildmalarna stamps & spent over £100 at bunny zoes which he hoped would of come today........but I also got a pre-order so that will take longer.
Anyway today is my birthday but unfortunately it doesnt hold happy memeories as it was my birthday 3 years ago my dad got rushed to hospital & I was told he has a matter of days of his life left. I stayed with him the whole time, slept, well sort of slept in one of those uncomfy chairs....we managed to pursuade them to let him home so he could spend his last days at home surrounded only by his family....we nursed & cared for him. He died 7 days after my birthday.
So as you can imagine I'm really upset today & keep crying....... I was EXTREMELY close to my dad we were best of friends.
So I'm signing off the internet & putting my lappy away so please dont think I'm ignoring you I will see how I feel later & try catch up with all my commenting, if not I will catch up with you all tomorrow.
I'm gonna scedule my post for ces in the morn & then I'm gonna spend the day cuddled with my family & kleenex.
See you soon xxx

I just had to show you these..........

Hi peeps I've come on quickly to show you these photo's we've just took. I'm actually in the middle of cooking tea, homemade Chilli-Con-Carne & then what ever Jake |& Megan want as they are fussy pant eaters lol.
Anyway my eldest son Ben has not long come in from work he is an apprentice plumber for the local housing authority. Anyhoo he went over to see the pups & they have started to realise today they have 4 legs & they can now stand on all 4, be it shaky but still..........yeah this is where the fun starts lol. Well the little runt of the litter is actually the one with the strongest legs & the one Ben loves the most as he gives a little growl everytime ben goes to him lol. Well Ben was cuddling him & well look what he did next.........

He put her in his I nearly peed on the kitchen floor & just had to grab the camera LOL.
You can just see her daddy's paw & head there lol.

Isn't she just the cutest!!!!!!!!
There is daddy, Charlie, making sure his little girl is safe lol.

I'm thinking she is mistaking my sons hand for a nipple lol......either way it looks tasty to her lol.

I have had a few messages asking what sort of puppies are they. They are pedigree Yorkshire Terriers but all yorkies as any yorkie owner will tell you are born black & tan & as they grow they develope their own colourings. Ben is wanting to keep this one & is hoping she grows up to be like her dad who is such a character.......I've never known anyone like him......he always makes me smile every day especially when he sings along to the ice-cream van lol.
This is Charlie, the daddy of the pups he is very light haired......

Rather camera shy lol...............
Well I better go finish off tea before the hungry hoard start eating my furniture.......
Will be hopping to see you laters tatty bye for now my lovelies
Lotsa squishy huggles xoxoxoxo

Here is my summery creation..............

This is 'Carnation Fairy' decoupage & I thought she was perfect for this theme....I love carnations.

This pic is to show you the decoupage layers.

This beautiful fabric flower in the centre is from Crafts & Me & I will be soooo getting more of this. Its a flower ribbon but I just cut 1 off & it matches my pink seam binding underneath really may just be able to see it lol. I also added white tulle underneath the seam binding.

Added some glitter to her wings, hard to photo lol. I also placed her on a Lacey Oval Nestie once I decoupaged her up. Isnt she so pretty. Paper is Prima 'Sparkling Spring'. All card is A4 card from my stash.

I felt like there was something missing when I was taking the photo's so when I was finished I added 3 pink pearl gems along the top & took 1 more piccy to show you lol.

Look!!!! I've crafted yaaayyyyyyaaayyyyy..........

Hello again my lovelies how are you all? Well I've nearly done 1 wall of bricks, got about 20 to do tomorrow then onto the other wall & then finish painting the graffiti lol. I do suffer a bit at night but its self inflicted so I wont complain as it really is my own fault.
It seems to be taking ages catch up with you all & tonight I know I shouldnt as I have commenting to catch up with but this image has been coloured for sooooo long & I thought he would be perfect for the Teddy Bo challenge. So here is my creation.....

Now as most of you know I dont really do teddies but that I love love LOVE Teddy Bo/Bea they are just the cutest bears in the world......seriously!!!
They want anything other than a card so I've made a door hanger as I thought this image was perfect for this & I havnt made one since last year.

I've done a pocket again on my door hanger to hide the tag when not in use & also to put in any notes you may want to leave when they are not available............after all Teddy Bo is a very busy chap!!!

This gorgeous fella & the grass have been coloured with Copics.I've used chalk for his cheeks & the sky.
Sorry he has been coloured a while so cannot remember the colours I'm afraid.
The tag says 'Do Not Disturb' when you take it out of the pocket.....quite appropriate for the image, I thought it suited him well lol.

Well I better say tatty bye now Jake is complaining of really bad pain in his side so I'm to get him painkillers & a hot water bottle if he wants one.
See ya soonies my lovelies & thank you for being wonderful you mmwah.
Big squishy hugs xoxoxoxoxo

An update with some cute puppy photo's

Good morning my lovelies no card I'm afraid as I've still not had time to craft. I did 2 12 hour shifts on Jake's bedroom Friday & Saturday & then ended up in bed yesterday so didnt get a thing done & my lappy & crafting has been really neglected. I am getting round to everyone slowly.....very slowly so bare with me I will get there......I'm doing it in bursts in between other things lol.
Anyway the puppies are now 2 weeks old so hubby & Jake took photo's yesterday so I thought I would show you the little cutie's. I cant believe how well mum is doing, they are getting so big she's doing a fabulous job looking after them all....
I think this one is catching

They are getting so big & WHEN they are awake they now have their eyes open bless 'em.

Yesterday they were even trying to do a little growl in their sleep, I didnt hear them as I was stuck in my bed.....yes I'm a stubborn bugga but when it comes to doing stuff for my family I will put that before anything lol.
What doesnt help is cus Jake loves his energy drinks, Monster & Relentless lol.........I think it helps him play on his computers for longer cus he certainly doesnt use that much energy lol.
Anyway as a lot of you know I got him graffitti wallpaper for his room for 2 of his wall. Well Jake has designed his own graffiti to go on 1 wall & he wants a brick look wall in grey so guess who is painting individual bricks on his walls..........yep moi, not painted bricks before but up to now it is looking ok still more shading to do on them & still the rest of the wall to do & then the wall on the other side. I've also had to transfer his graffiti sign to the top of the wall & now I've got paint each individual thing on that lol.
I thought I would show you the reason I'm so absent the last few days.

Yep this is a close up of the bricks, obviously each one has to be slightly diff as no 2 bricks are ever identical & in a few I have even put cracks.......more shading has to go but they are no where near finished yet.

See I have all this wall to do yet. There is dust all over his consoles & tv & unit from where I sanded the woodwork down before glossing it lol.
His room will hopefully look awesome once its done & perfect for a teenager. Black, grey & white with graffiti...........what teen wouldn't love that lol.
Well I'm off to do some more bricks now will be back to blog hopping later.
Thanky ou so much for your comments on my card on saturday they mean a lot my lovelies. I will also catch up with my e-mails later as well as there are a few of you who I havnt had chance to e-mail yet....sorry.
Lots of squishy cuggles xoxoxoxoxo
