We have had bad new about one of our dogs Brad he has been diagnosed with a mast cell tumor up his nose, we are awaiting biopsy results but because of where it is there is no chance of surgery :( The thing is he is so fit and well, just this awful sneezing every now and again. I have broke my heart crying as fear the worst.

Anniversary Card

This was a commissioned card I was asked to make for a Wedding Anniversary.
I find it so difficult making a card for commissions as always worry about if they will like it or not, especially when you don't know who you are making it for! I still don't know if they liked it, hopefully they did.

I have used a large 8x8 card with SU! papers and card. The main image is a 3D sheet from Crafts Creations, I do love their step by step sheets so easy to use and such good value.

I hope you have all had a nice weekend? I have been to visit my Son and his girlfriend this weekend, Beata is Polish and her parent are over for a visit so we went to meet them, it was difficult to communicate as they speak no English, we still had a good evening Beata had to do the translating lol..

There are lots of great images been added to the Cuddly Buddly shop in the last week, Karen has a real mix of cute and trendy images and then there is the very sweet Toby Tumbles Christmas images by Czes.
