Smexy Lady!

Not sure where my head is this week, worried about Nico having his love plums sorted on Friday no doubt lol! The things we put ourselves through for our animals. Not that I would have it any other way....he is doing really great the only reason I'm having him done is....when it comes to mating season next feb-may he will get nasty & all hormonal. So as I'm not breeding from him, it made sense to get him done as soon as possible....so Friday at 9:30 we are taking him to be done!

Anyhoos I'm here to show you my DT creation for The Stamping Chef. As always the theme is...


you don't need to use a Stamping Chef image, but if you do, you double your chances of winning!

If your a regular you will know both me & Nige forgot our 16th wedding anniversary earlier in the month..oops! So I decided to make him a card for the 23rd of this month, which will be 19 years since he first kissed me lol! The silly things we remember!!

Adding A Bit of Texture!

This week has been a funny one so far. Getting used to the girlies time tables at college is gonna take a while lol & having Nige home Tuesday & yesterday was fabulous.
He ended up spending his two days off building me an outdoor enclosure for Nico to play, dig & sunbathe in. Will be great just to be able to pop him outside, Nige has also managed to put an electric hookup in the shed, so I can go outside with my laptop & watch films whilst Nico plays. 

Anyhoos the real reason I'm here isn't to rabbit on about that, it's to show you my latest creation for Moving Along With The Times. Where this week we want to see some


added to your creation.
Ok so when I saw this theme I just drew a blank, as I don't own any of that paste stuff or frantage stuff. But then I had a 'oh you silly mare' moment....embossing adds texture, so that's what I did!

Just love this guy cheeky face!

Fizzy In His Stocking!

Oops see I did have the post ready for yesterday afternoon, but I was in such a rush to go out & take Nico for a walk I didn't press publish lol such a numpty....

So sorry my post is a few hours late, we are trying to sort out a fenced off area outside for Nico. As we live in a terrace & only have a small slabbed yard, Nige was scrubbing it with bleach whist I nipped out & got some bark to put down. Now just need Nige to make a gate of some sort & some sort of covering so the damn cats can't get in & poop in there. Oh & to keep Charlie dawg out & Nico in of course lol!
