So, I have a little story to tell you. One morning, not so long ago – as in yesterday, someone left our house early in the morning and unfortunately happened to not quite click a couple of doors closed….can you guess where this is going?
Being a little adventurer young Betty decided to investigate the undiscovered territory of the library and the craft room – it could have been so much worse but believe me, the devastation she left behind was phenomenal! This picture just shows the things she decided to take back to her bed to craft with later…
So once we’d cleaned up and tidied up she decided that if she was going to be told off she was going to camouflage herself and hide in a pile of spots with Grace and Arthur, she wasn’t very convincing – she kept looking up to see if I’d gone away – Grace didn’t seem too happy with the cosy rug being gate crashed. So with her big brown eyes and cute face she’s forgiven again, until next time…………..
Wow! Aren’t these samples just gorgeous? They have been created by the lovely Carol and Hayley from Dreamees for their shows on Create & Craft today at 10am and 6pm. Don’t the Tattered Lace dies work beautifully with their crafty style?
Tune in to see these and more samples…..
Good morning everyone, I hope you are all feeling well and crafty this morning. I thought I’d share this picture with you today as it is making me smile, even though I took it a few days ago. She really is a little monkey, if we leave the chairs pulled out from the table she can be found rummaging through handbags and lunch bags galore. Recently she decided that this one was just the perfect size for a rest after all that exercise – at least she has style!
So you may or may not know about Betty, our new dalmatian puppy and let me tell you – she is a mischievous little soul!
Her latest game is to go to the pond in the garden, pull out the pond plants (you can imagine how much Karl loves THAT game!) and throw them around, she then runs off as if she thinks they are chasing her. She also loves running around the garden, leaping over chairs and under tables – its as though she thinks she is taking part in the sheepdog trials. I think she’s been watching too much Crufts myself, what do you think?
If you have pictures of your pets doing crazy things feel free to share them on my facebook and twitter pages! You’ll find links at the top of the page
PS HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!! We are just prepping some shows for this weekend and Betty took a shine to Nancy’s Deco Folly sheets from the 100 sheet megapack, needless to say another pack is on its way up to the studio as the shredded sheets really aren’t craftable anymore!!!
Well aren’t these flowers just Blooming Marvellous! Karl has just surprised me with these beautiful flowers for my birthday and they are stunning, everyone has stopped work to have a look. Thank you to everyone who has sent cards and messages, I’m having a lovely day and feel very lucky that the sun is shining today – spring is coming!
Talking of Blooming Marvellous have you seen the new paper pads that we’ve just launched this morning on www.createandcraft.tv with the lovely Liz Curtis. We have had an absolute blast working with the designs on these pads, here are some images of a card that Diane created using a combination of Blooming Marvellous Paper Pads and the new Lavish Blooms dies that launch tomorrow – more about that then though!
Let me know what you think of the new pads….
