2 December 2010


It is snowing and blowing outside the dogs have been out with BH this morning and now they are both snoring. A few months ago you may remember that the vet put Alfie on a diet. I didn't think we were over feeding him, but went along with it. Alfie didn't lose any weight, after speaking with another vet, Alfie had a couple of blood tests which revealed he had an under active thyroid. Alfie has been on his medication 2 weeks today and it is just wonderful the change him in. We have our very mischief Alfie again and we are thrilled. It has been fabulous to see him chasing around in the snow. He is now bringing my slippers again in the mornings something he has not done for ages. Two days ago when I woke up there was an assortment of shoes, boots, slippers, both BH's and mine piled up at the side of the bed, it was almost as if he was telling me he was feeling better...

The snow is falling all around us.......

Is this snow never going to give up?Looks like another crafting day to today it is definitely crafting weather don't you think?

This mornings card is one of my many orders, at least I should be able to catch up with those this week.

I have struggled with this card as I always do when asked to make a mans cards, I find it so much easier to make womens and childrens cards. BH said to stop faffing around and just get on with it, so I did.. I took some transportation stickers added more layers. The card is 8 x 8 I have used an assortment of grey and black card and ribbons.

Our theme this week over on our challenge blog Anything Goes is Congratulations, we have left the Novembers ATC swap 'Let It Snow' is open for the time being as a lot of you have not been able to get in and the theme for December is 'Christmas'

The snow is falling all around us...can't get that tune out of my head, don't know why? lol
Happy crafting Lynne xx
