Hiya Peeps,

It's Friday and I couldn't be more glad.  Little Ollie had me up yesterday at 6:30am and it's my daughter's turn to get up with him this weekend, so I am looking forward to a lay in or at least not getting out of bed at 6:30 am. He looks like butter wouldn't melt, but when he's having his mad half hour nicking a sheet of newspaper and running off and diving under the sofa which is only 2 inches off the ground and biting everything in sight, suddenly his cuteness doesn't count for anything, well o.k. I can't be mad with him for long, could you.?????

Today I have used the gorgeous "Remembrance" by Sweet Pea Stamps available from Crafts and Me, I loved her from the minute I saw her. I have coloured her using my prisma's utilising all the warm grey tones. She's definitely a favourite of mine.

I have embossed the gorgeous flourish corners from Make It Crafty with Two tone Moonglow Embossing Powder.  It'g gorgeous in real life and when tilted in the light glows from gold to aqua blue.

Look at him Tracy looking out the corner of his eye, what a beautiful fluffball. You have given me the 1st laugh of the day.
Your card is going to take second place today, I love the grey tones and the way you have brought in the colour by surrounding it with embellies.

Oh Tracy that is one gorgeous card love that image its so beautiful.
Yes know all those tricks with pups, mine has chewed up my WA card today, mind you it was hubby fault hed put on my pillow on the bed, and of course our pup can now jump up on the bed, and of course she found it and destroyed it.
Shes also starting to loose her baby teeth and is also chewing everything in site. Shes more or less house trained and she sleeps from 11pm till 7am so we arnt to worried about being woken during the night. She does still sleep in her cage and its been a godsend as shes never messed during the night. hugs Shirleyx

Wow, amazingly beautiful card, Tracy--those corners are just gorgeous! Is Ollie a Maltese? So funny because I posted a pic of mine on my post today too. They DO look like butter wouldn't melt but don't drop a tissue on the floor or there are microscopic shreds of it all over my house within 5 minutes. LOL
