Meet York!

Meet York!  He arrived into our family on Monday and is just a complete cutie.  He is 7 weeks old and we will "puppywalk" him for the next year for the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind.

He is a golden retriever/ x labrador.  If you want to see some photos of him when he was younger you can check them out here.  You can spot him as he is the blondest/white one in the litter.

Thanks for stopping by - hope you have a blessed day.

Puppy Proofing!

We are waiting for our next Guide Dog Puppy to arrive.  We are due to collect him/her next Monday so the house and garden are in the throes of being "puppy proofed" again!.

We are hopefully getting a puppy from the "y" litter but don't know it's name yet.

Want to see some amazing photos of these cuties? 

Thanks for stopping by - hope you got a good dose of puppy cuteness!

Best Wishes!

Supplies:  stitched sentiment stamp - The Crafts Meow, 
Feather die - mft, white dotted swiss cardstock - Bazzill 
Basics, cerise cardstock - Canson, enamel - Ranger industries,
tuxedo black ink - memento and pop dots.

I loved how Laura Bassen created this - love how she used up scraps and stamped the sentiment twice to make a beautiful card.

I have these stitched sentiments for quite a while since I saw this card by Jennifer McGuire.

I used cerise pink cardstock that looks very bright here in this post! and some scrap swiss dot cardstock that I had in my stash to cut out the feather.

Enamel dots are all the rage at the moment but I didn't have any white ones - I grabbed my bottle of enamel by Ranger Industries and created my own!

Simon Says Stamp - We are going dotty!

Thanks for peeking - hope you have a great day.

Congratulations - another fun shaker Wedding Card!

Supplies:  pp - Amy Tangerine for American Crafts, 
computer generated sentiment, glassine envelope and 
insert - from my stash (possibly Paper Source!), machine 
stitching, SRM sentiment sticker, heart die - Spellbinders, 
pop dots, roller adhesive - Tombow, white sequins and white 
card blank - Craftworks.

Used some pp from the Studio Calico August Card Kit - Marks & Co to create this fun wedding card. 

I found the glassine envelope and insert in my stash and know that I have had it for quite a while.  I machine stitched the top of the glassine envelope to make sure the sequins wouldn't fall out!

It's a touch of a shaker card! - it has the shaker element and is certainly using non traditional wedding colours but I thought it was perfect for an autumnal card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and peeking - hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

Wedding Cards using dies!

Supplies: pp and cardstock - October Afternoon 
(Studio Calico July Card Kit), white sequins, Alphabet dies - 
Lawn Fawn, acetate, computer generated sentiment, 
enamel dots - MME, pop dots, white card blank.

Firstly, I decided to make some wedding cards in non traditional colours!!
So the first one I created using some patterned paper from the July Card Kit by Studio Calico - Valley High.

I created a layer between the cardstock and pp and layered it with acetate to create a "shaker" card using sequins.
Supplies:  pp and cardstock - Studio Calico August Card Kit (Marks & Co.), 
gems, Boy Meets Girl - Die-namics by MFT, heart die - 
Spellbinders, pop dots and card blank

The second one I want to share today is another wedding card with the same colour palette!

Thanks for peeking - hope you have a wonderful day.
