Guest Designer & A New Baby!

Good morning peeps,
Yesterday we brought home another new addition to our family, an 8 week old liver & white Springer Spaniel who hubby has named Jester. It has taken me a very long time to agree to having another puppy dog after losing my beloved Frodo & so far so good, the only real downside is he's not properly house trained so I have one eye on him, one on typing my post & a bottle of disinfectant to hand lol. Dude our old boy took to him straight away, Suggs (cat) just seems to want to beat the puppy up & chase him & the other cats thankfully don't seem bothered by his arrival.
I did have a few strong words with young Jester last night & lay the law down as he grabbed one of my Copic sketch pens which is a big no no & is the first thing that young man needs to learn lol.
Here he is with Jodie

Today I am guest designing for 
and this weeks challenge is
Ingredients -
Medium - Copics
Papers - DCWV & stash
Sentiment - Cats Life Press
Twine - Hemptique
Tools - Nesties, Marianne Designs music note (large), MFT small notes, Happy Birthday & Swiss Dots embossing folders
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Make It Monday - anything goes, Inspire Me Friday - anything goes, Sketch & Stash - sketch
Have you noticed I've been good and made loads of "man cards" lately. It's going to be flowers galore for me today as I'm finishing off a couple of cards for the fabby Simon Says Stamp advert in Magnolia Ink :)
Thanks for stopping by

  10. Aww what can I say just love your card Mandy so striking and vibrant, love the colour combo it's especially good for boys! Your Pup is adorable. I remember first having Nikita home and forever watching her in case she moved and quickly popped her on the paper! My best friends have now become bleach and neutradol! Hope you have fun with little Jester!

  14. Aaaww . . . what a sweet, sweet new baby! Whenever I see a little puppy, I get that urge to get another one to join our family. However, we already have 3 furry kids, so we are going to do without.

    Btw, your creation is very fun! You are most welcome to join us at Tuesday Alchemy http://tuesdayalchemy.blogspot.com for our Anything Goes challenge :)

    Happiness!

  37. Your card is almost as adorable as the new puppy! How could you ever get mad at that sweet face? It sounds like you will have your hands full for awhile training him, but I'm sure you will get lots of love in return.
