Stocking Bunnies

Today is a very special day in our house. A year ago today we collected Nico our baby skunk, I can't believe its a year already!! I just wanted to say that I feel deeply honoured that he is so relaxed & happy in our house. I love it when he chases Nige around the house, but my favourite times are when its just me & him & we have snuggles in bed, with the occasional Nico wash thrown in for free. I never realised what beautiful creatures they are & how clean they keep themselves...Nico is so much cleaner than our greyhound Charlie! So there you go my baby boy arrived 12 months ago. I have attached below a then photo & a now photo. My boy has grown into such a handsome boy xxx

Anyhoos I think its time for a card & today's creation is for 'Try Stampin' on Tuesday' this week we have a fab sketch (which you will find here or at the end of my post) & the theme of 'brads' so copy the sketch & add a few of those long forgotten brads & your good to go!

I decided to make another Christmas card to add to my box for charity.

I've had this stamp for ages, it was a freebie with a magazine ages ago.
