Poor funny Maggie

Just a quick story that made me laugh today, although Miss Maggie was not amused!!

We went to the park today and because no one else was in the little chinese garden I let Maggie off the lead, anyway I crossed the pond over the stepping stones and poor Maggie thought she'd walk across the grass. Only it wasn't grass, it was the pond algae!!!! poor Maggie came out green and grumpy and I'm terrible because I laughed so hard it hurt.

Unfortunately she didn't get her silver good citizen award, she did so well until the very last test were she had to stay in the car until told to get out, Maggie decided enough was enough and jumped out doing a merry naughty dance around the car park. Next time :-) She also went for her 1st run last week with my boyfriend.

Maggie has only ventured into water this last few weeks but only paw deep (hope the pond incident didn't put her off)

Thanks for popping by, I'll have some crafting soon (she's too big a distraction)

Thank You Teacher card

Thank You Teacher Card

I had so much fun making these cards last year for a friend in work, I was more than happy to make her another exactly (well almost) the same for her daughters teacher this year.

Its such a simple card to make and I took my original inspiration from a papercraft magazine last year, the stamp (Wee stamps) was a freebie which is so versatile I've used it alot. 

I coloured her with pro-markers and matched her hair to the little girl it is from. Unfortunately silly me I hadn't written down the colours i'd used so had to start from scratch again. 

The blackboard was simply black card matted onto brown wrapping paper (I didn't have any wood effect paper left but still think it worked) and the letters were cut out with my cuttlebug. I love my new cameo but seem to always use my cuttlebug when I can, its more 'what you see is what you get' and quieter for late night crafting. 

I just finished of with some ribbon and gems, oh and stickles of course, a card isnt a card without stickles :-)

Miss Maggie

We took Maggie to Stormont today for a walk, this her her practicing waiting 2 minutes for her silver award next week. Unfortunately 5 minutes before this she had a sock hanging out of her bottom!!! We dont leave socks lying around anymore so goodness knows where she gets them because this is number 8!!!! 

Looking at this picture I realised shes a dog now and not a puppy anymore. 


I'd like to enter the following challenges
