Arggghhhh only 4 days to go lololol!!!

Spent most of the weekend packing but managed to sneek off & leave them three to it & make my DT cards for today lol Not got much left to do now the kitchen &  my craft stuff (oops) lol but thats not going anywhere until at least Thursday.
Update on our Charlie, he's not to bad now thankfully, still not putting much weight on his leg, but he is putting it on the floor.....if he was a labrador he'd be fine, its just Greyhounds are soooooooooooooo mardy lol x

My first DT card this week is for 'The Crazy Challenge' WOW I can't believe how many entries we had last week, I thought you would all be to busy in your gardens, so thank you very much for taking the time to join us....hopefully you will be back again this week.

Our sponsor this week is Hobbissimo

The theme this week is 'Up In The Air' my origanal card was of a Spitfire aeroplane but I didn't like it lol, so decided to do another one & this is what I came up with...I hope you like it!
This is Cuthbert Bear & he is just gorgeous

I think he has got a gorgeously cute face

Challenges I Am Entering

My next card is my DT card for Craft Your Passion
The theme this week is faux/real stitching which I just love doing. I go through stages of putting faux stitching on every card I make then you won't see it for months until something reminds me of it & hay presto its back on every card again lol...but I do think it looks really pretty.

I had great fun making this card, I found out last week my friend is pregnant again, it'll be their 4th & I hope this time its a boy, because I'm sure they will carry on having babies until they get a boy lol...
I just think this sentiment goes so well with an expecting card
