Holiday Fun

I'm so enjoying being at home with the little pupster.  Harley is so cute but too darn clever!!!  He can only open the blummin cupboard where the dog foods kept!!!  Suddenly, Dylan who has wanted nothing at all to do with him, has become his new best friend rofl.  I'll take some more pics this weekend to show you how he's settling in after just a week.  I can't wait til we can take him out walking! 

I have found some time for crafting, in between house training and fending off boisterous puppy play lol.  I found Harley makes a lovely foot muff in the evenings hahahaha.

I've had this fantastic image from Karen's Doodles which I was just dying to use.  We had some lovely hot weather at the weekend - so hot I soaked the kids with the hosepipe for two minutes.  I remember my dad soaking me and my brother when we were kids so I just adore this image. 

I had to use these lush papers My Minds Eye and have a play with some new flowers I purchased.  I used my woodware inverted corner punch around the image.  The lettering is a diecut I've had ages and want to get more use from now my craft space is all organised.  I matted the lettering using my X-Cut circle punch.  The rain and water was blinged up a little using my glamour dust.
I'm entering this into the following challenges.......

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm off for a little game of tug with Harley then he'll settle again so I can grab a cuppa.

Take care.
