York is off to start his next adventure!

This boy "York" joined our family last year on 21st October - you can see how tiny and adorable he was below.  The photo above was taken last week by his "new" puppywalkers (who are amazing! - long story! but we were blessed with the new family that welcomed him into their lives).  They upload nearly daily photos of his adventures which has let us see him grow and develop into an amazingly, confident dog.  He is starting his next adventure at the end of the month.  He heads off to "big school" where he is going to train to hopefully become a Guide Dog or Assistance Dog/
 We wish him and his siblings in the "Y" Litter every success in their training.  If you want to find out more about the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind - check out their website here.  
Okay - alert - two more cute puppy photos below!.
Can I go sailing too? I will fit in this bag!
Butter wouldn't melt!!! Yeah right!!!
 Thanks for peeking.

Super Hugs!

Supplies: Super Duo stamp set by Mama Elephant/Simon Says 
Stamp, stitched frames - Paper Smooches, black cardstock - 
canson, white card blank - Anita's, dimensional foam adhesive
 and versafine black ink.

When I saw this set by Mama Elephant designed exclusively for Simon Says Stamp I knew I had to have it.  I threw it into my cart but unfortunately was too late to nab the matching die set.  Will be on the look out on ebay for those!

Love these adorable super duos! Kept this card monochromatic with just a spot of red on "supergirl's" belt!.

Warmest Wishes!

Supplies:  Grey pp - Valorie Wibbens (September Card Kit - 
Studio Calico) - other pp from same card kit (all Studio 
Calico), feather die - Underground Card Kit (SC), digital 
sentiment from Blue Note Stamp Kit, matting card - 
Ocean Tides cardstock Papertrey ink and machine stitching.

A quick share!  I wanted to used up some scraps from the beautiful Poet Society Card Kit by Studio Calico so I created this grey/blue tone on tone card.  I printed the sentiment directly onto the patterned paper with my printer to create a 6x6 card.

I machine stitched 5 feathers to the scraps using the feather die in the Underground Card Kit.  Love using up the scraps!.

Thanks for peeking.

Our Summer!

Hi there - welcome back to my nearly dormant blog!
Hard to believe that our Summer is over - we enjoyed many evenings like the one above!
We spent a little time on the water!!!! in various locations.
In various types of boats!
We got to catch up with our adorable bundle of joy - York and check out how he is getting on with his wonderful new(ish!) puppywalker.  He goes to "big school"! in December to start his training as a Guide Dog/Assistance Dog.  He has grown A LOT!  Can you tell the boys were thrilled to see him?.

Hope you had a great Summer too.  I hope to visit blogland over the coming week or so to see what everyone has been up to.  I also hope to get back creating (fingers crossed).

Thanks so much for visiting.  Happy Monday!
