  Fun, fun, fun....just broke up a dog fight and had to throw out the offending bone causing all the grief!  Poor wee Riles got a scratch on his chest, will have to keep an eye on that. Doggie politics! At least its always obvious what they're fighting over, unlike humans! Riley wont be so quick to jump in and steal Brodie's things now! He was always scared of Bruno and has got very cocky since Bruno died. Now Brodie is boss ( Mr Potatohead cos he's all head at the moment and needs to grow into his body!).

  Finally getting some me time in my craft room.   Made a calendar for the Stampin for the weekend challenge, using websters pages, a magnolia stamp, some prima bling, cool raffia stuff I got somewhere, my butterfly punch and handmade organza flower.

Yep, I've been missing in action, having had people staying, a new dog moving in, a cat hiding cards made at all. We've had Patrick the cat stashed in my craft room for a few days, gradually introducing him to Brodie and vice versa. Brodie is having to learn he can't chase Patrick...sigh....what a slow process. In the meantime Pat the Cat has been rearranging things in my craft room. He's pulled flowers off things, shredded bits of paper, pulled my ribbon holder apart?????!!! At least he hasn't found the stamp pads and started decorating with his paws!LOL!

 Finally got to make a card today, for the Sugar Bowl challenge which is a sketch by Lillian, including your favourite colour. Well, never thought I'd say this but I have a thing for lime green and orange at the moment!  The card was made using BG lime rickey papers, and a sugar nellie image coloured with copics, and prima flower centres.

My one attempt at anything crafty this week is a design team card for Doodle Palace with one of their new releases. Papers are a mix of lots of scraps, and have used the new prima centres in my retro punched flowers. Sentiment is SU.
Its absolute chaos here at the moment, what with a very overgrown puppy called Brodie moving in and two grumpy poodles who really don't wanna play with the giant beast and a missing cat...he sneaks in to eat then sneaks away again. We tried to shut him in the garage last night and he's figured out how to open the window catches! Poor Paddy never likes it when a new dog arrives. Oh well, will have to work on getting the two acquainted. He's not scared of our lot, beats them up in fact!
 Oh, and just another little complication , I dislocated my little toe when I kicked Gav's steel-capped boots in passing on Sunday! Had to take most of Monday off work to rest my foot. Luckily it seems to be improving fast............

Our new boy!

 This is Brodie, the new addition to our pack! He is 15 months old and a gorgeous boy, whose Dad has become too busy to give him the time he needs. We brought him home yesterday and he has settled in really well, despite the gingernut trying to scare him away!

Doodle Palace

  This weeks release from Doodle Palace includes this cute wee sick bear. I used my new Prima papers from Crafty Tart , and a Twiddley Bitz flower embellishment , with some Kaiser craft pearls.
  Vinnie spent the day at the vets yesterday, having xrays to see why he keeps having episodes of pain in one of his legs. Thought it was arthritis...its not! He has tendon damage in his shoulder and the joint slides a bit, and possibly gets stuck, so we think this is why he's been squealing alot lately.  But don't worry, drugs have settled the problem for the time being. If it goes on, its a trip to Massey University Vet school and an MRI and possibly surgery......EEEEK!!! Lotsa money!!! My poor baby, and my poor bank account!
