Oh what a time!

Oh what a time I've had!! a new puppy and a new die cut machine!!  Betty (see below with her favourite toy) came to our household and seems to have quietly taken over! she has the most delightful nature to her and apart from a little nose nibbling if she gets near your face, there is not a jot wrong with her, she is an absolute delight, and a distraction from crafting, although she does like to sit on my feet while I'm card making :)

As I said before I have just purchased a Vagabond to replace my broken Big Shot and I have cut out LOADS of random shapes just playing with it!!  I also got a Hougie board as Eileen and a number of other crafters rave about it, and today I created this pocket card from a 12" square of paper in no time at all.  I added one of the tags cut using the vagabond and decorated both with a lovely set of flourish stamps.  I found the instructions on another blog, but have closed the page down without noting it :( I'll see if I can find it in my history if anyone is interested.

lots of love to anyone who has taken the time to read my ramblings :) xx

Take care

OOOHHH Betty is adorable - as the others have asked already what breed is she?

Melissa said...

She is a miniature poodle - and SO clever, she has already learned Sit, Wait, Paw and she gives a little woof if you ask her to "speak" she has stolen my heart big time - she has fun in the craft room! I have to watch what I put on the floor or she runs off with it!
