'Fluffy'

Had a wonderful day yesterday, me & Katie went & helped out at a Bird of Prey show with Gentleshaw. Had lots of giggles & Nico was definitely the star of the show!!

It's Thursday so that means a new challenge over at Moving Along with the Times. This time around we have a fabulous sketch for you to follow. It's a really easy one too! You can find it by either scrolling down to the end of my post or by clicking here!

I fell in love with Sylvia Zet's images, last October when I went on my crafty weekend & managed to get one of her stamps called 'Beau & Bashful' & after looking at her images when I got back, I realised I needed them all lol. Well I do have a few now but in digi form as they take up less space & the real reason is they are a lot cheaper! 
My card today is using one of my newest images by her, I hope you like him I think he is a real cutie!

This month I have made two cards, as Kim is off house hunting & packing so she didn't have time.
So here's my second card....one of the lads that volunteers at Gentleshaw on a Sunday with us has totally fallen in love with Nico...who hasn't lol....anyhoos his mom gave me some harnesses with leads for Nico when he is older. So I thought I would make a thank you card for her as they are really expensive harnesses with the padding & you can turn them inside out for a different colour, so I just wanted to say thanks xx
