Ralph - Birthday Fishes - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

I know it's a bit of a rare occurrence these days, but I have managed a card... Here's a fab new character from DigiStamp Boutique, called Ralph (love him!).

I've used lots of random scraps from different Doodlebug pads, as Chester doesn't give me enough time to come up with actual layouts at the moment!  I've found that I can get quite a bit of colouring done sat at the dining table, because he can settle at my feet and he's quite happy... he drags a little cushion over and makes himself comfy lol, it's very cute.

Chester's given us the push we needed to start getting some quotes from builders for the extension we're planning... the plan is to have a downstairs craft room, and maybe an extra loo, then the boys can have separate bedrooms and Chester can be near me whenever I'm crafting... we'll have to see what the quotes are like!

We're off for his 2nd vaccine now, so we can start going for walks soon :o)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!

  10. Great male card, love Ralph, papers and layout are lovely. It will get easier with Chester. I now take Millie out for a long walk over the fields, put her in the cage and have an hour or two upstairs without feeling guilty for leaving her. Hugs Gail xx

  12. Love Ralph, he's great & your scraps all work perfectly. Maybe I should think about a dog if it leads to an extension lol, been after one of those for years! xx

  13. I say Chester is doing you a favour by forcing you to use scraps for your layouts:) it's a great masculine design!

  14. Great guy card! Brill image for the fishermen out there and your use of scraps of paper has worked really well.
    Chester sounds adorable lying on your feet while you colour. Our extension is starting today! We'll get a sun room half will be for a dining/sitting area and the other half a craft area for me, Yay! No more working on a small folding TV table and a lap tray. So definitely go for an extension, get a craft room and rooms for the boys if you can afford to. Debra x

  15. Awwww, more pics needed of Chester!!! LOL Fab card too.
