Hello there, just a short posting from me this evening. I've had another mad weekend - this week full of parties, puppies and far too much self indulgence! lol
I just had to share with you an adorable picture of my sister's new puppy 'Copper'. He is a Hungarian Vischler and is only 9 weeks old...and already likes beer!!

I'd also like to show you a real girly pink friendship card I made for another crafter:

I loved making this card! I haven't used these lovely flower stamps for aages as I've only just got them back from my sis who borrowed them for a couple of months. I distressed the edges of the card to remove the stark whiteness, although it doesn't show too well in the photos. I also thought I'd try using a different sentiment too! I used the 'everyday greetings' stamps from but hand wrote the exclamation mark.

~Crafty Ingredients~
Stamps~Personal Impressions flower stamp, Hanglar image received from friend, Elzybells 'everyday greetings' sentiments
Card~PM Scalloped card blanks, dotty pink paper from stash, Coredinations pink card
Tools~Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Embossing Swiss Dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Nestabilites, Faber Castell polychromo pencils blended with Sansador, Versa Colour Pink Pixie ink, Dew Drops Memento black ink, Tim Holtz 'Milled Lavender distressing ink, Glossy Accents
Embellishments~Candy Dots from

That's all for now,
