Last week of summer...yaaayyyy! Oh, and a bit of news!

I bet you didn't know Ruby was so talented huh...I wonder if there are any other pooches out there that can blog lol? She was thrilled when I read out all the comments left to her and wants me to I'm a bit embarrassed about this but she insists....erm...woof woof! I do believe that's thank you in doggy lol.

I am so glad the summer is almost over and I can get back into a proper routine. I've missed TLT and although I've posted most if not all Tuesdays over the holidays it's not the same without all the Ladybugs.

As the challenge has been Favourite Stamp for the month of August I thought I'd finish off with one more of my favourites. This is Tracey and the Reindeer...I love Reindeers expression :-D I thought all reindeer liked their antlers decorated lol.

 Anywho here's my card....

I followed a challenge sketch I saw it on Gaynor's blog and thought I'd have a bash. I never know if you're supposed to follow the sketch to the letter, so to speak, so to be on the safe side I did (although I added some ribbon so I guess I didn't lol!)

I used my Wink Of Stella sparklicious glitter pens on all the baubles (red) and bows (clear) but you can't see how much they sparkle...they're amazing!

Not sure if mouse is standing in the best place lmao

This is one of the gorgeous new ribbons that arrived the other week, olive sheer satin stripe...I also have it in violet and white...scrumptious and a steal at 85p a yard!

I'd like to enter my card in
