Olly

Hello everyone,
I hope you weekend was lovely. So last time I talked to you I was giddy with excitement as little Olly was about to join us.
Today I am formally introducing him :)
These photos were taken straight away after we got home. I decided to just leave him explore on his own without to much input from me and he did just that with no problem. 

The patchwork corduroy moose was the first thing he picked out of his toys, three days later it is still his favourite, I guess because of its size he can easily carry it while he dashes about :)

He has settled in really well so far a bit to well to be honest. Very confident and fearless pup eager to learn, so far potty training is our forte. Can count on one hand how many accidents he had in the house and they were all our fault.  
We are still mastering the sleep though, the score for the first 48 hours is 
Olly = 36 hours sleep
Me= 5 hours sleep
Last night everyone had 7 hours sleep !!! 

So there you have it our 6"tall Olly the cockapoo pup, every bit as cute as these photos and already I love him lots !!! Thank you for your visit

BEST DAY EVER....

Hello there,
So last time you've heard from me I was merrily getting back into  the swing of things after Christmas completely oblivious that my life will soon face another change!!! But before I tell you all about it let me share a card with you using one of the free Sale a Bration stamp sets you can redeem with a £45 order from now until the end of March called BEST DAY EVER!!
Isn't it yummy? I case the concept from our very own CEO of Stampin"Up! Shelli Gardner  and monicafied it a little :)
I used gold embossing powder and our wonderfully thick watercolour paper. I loved the design so much I ended up making many more and was one of the samples I sent out along with my catalogues. Have you got a catalogue yet? would you like one? then contact me and you might get one of these cards or you might even get a different one :)
I used Bermuda Bay card and ink and a stampin spritzer to add some water for the cool bleeding effect.
 A little scalloped border in yummy gold glimmer paper picked up on the gold embossing powder while the small flowers were punched out from coffee filter paper with the itty bitty flower punch.

So now onto the news !!! We are adding another member to our family!!! Tomorrow, yes only one more sleep to go (yippee) we are bringing home little Olly, an 8 week old cockapoo and I am just about to burst with excitement.


Pictures not very clear as he is a little wiggler and very hard to pin down but you get the gist. Here's another one with some of his fluffy brothers. He is the middle one
And as you can imagine I went puppy buying mad !!! My poor husband is practically running out the house first thing in the morning to escape my excited puppy convos (silly man).
But we are ready for him, we have a crate, a puppy play pen, we have fluffy beds for supervised sleeps only ( fluffy vet bed and blankets for the crate) hot water bottles, puppy pulse, coats, collars, treats, grooming products and grooming equipment and toys??? oh has he got a LOT of toys already (all of it might be wasteful as he might not even play with them, Nico never did !!!)
But we are ready and waiting and already OBSESSED with him !!!

Thank you for visiting me see you again soon with a proper introduction of the baby poo :)
