Snowy Tag

Hello everyone... at last!

We picked Chester up on Saturday, and it's been non-stop since then really.  Even though I was expecting it, it's still a bit of a shock to the system... a lot like having a newborn!  He's lovely though, just very very attached to me, and doesn't like me to be out of sight at all.  So I'm expecting card making and blogging to be mostly impossible for the next week or two, while I slowly get him used to being alone for a little while!

So.... here's a card I made before Christmas, using some High Hopes stamps that I chose with a prize voucher.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges
High Hopes - anything High Hopes
Simon Says - something new (stamps... and does Chester count lol)

Here's a photo of the little gorgeous one, with part of his vast collection of toys...


I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with my DigiStamp Boutique DT card, but that might be a bit optimistic of me!

Thanks for popping in... apologies if I've not commented or emailed you back yet, this is the first day I've managed to switch the laptop on!  Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

    I had to chuckle to myself when you said its like having a newborn, lol. I know the feeling. My dog is almost 3 now, but I really do remember those first few months.

    Good luck with it all and there is light at the end of the tunnel x

  20. Oooo what a gorgeous snowman and a super sentiment.

    Did you watch the programme on BBC2 last week 'Six Puppies and Us', if you haven't try and find it on iplayer, as it was a real eye opener for looking after a new puppy - Chester looks adorable, but he's got the twinkle in his eye that say's i'm full of mischief ;-), Luv Sam x

  21. Fabby card Lisa! The snowman is really cute, it's great that you won him.
    You've finally got Chester, Yay!! He's absolutely gorgeous and I don't blame him for wanting to stay with his new mum. The lads must be so excited to have got him home at last. I remember how much work was involved when we got our kittens and they were already toilet trained. I hope you all have lots of fun with him :-) Debra x

  24. Oh Lisa your Chester looks so much like my daughters Chester who's a working cocker in exactly the same colour! There's no denying you will find it a little hard work over the next few aka but I promise you, it will be repaid a thousand times in love, fun & happiness! I'm excited for you all!
    Gorgeous colouring Lisa, as always!
