Midweek reminder - For A Special Lady

I'd just like to say that I had my card made at the weekend but couldn't find the time to blog it...honest lol!!! Believe it or not I made THREE cards in two days...yup I did :-D My house is like a bomb site but does that matter when you're crafting...absolutely not ;-D

Can't remember if I told you that Rocky had an operation on his back left cruciate (knee) in early January. At his 4 week post operation check they found bacteria on the implant and he's been on a 4 week course of antibiotics. We go back to the Vet School tomorrow to see if the infection has cleared and if it has hopefully he can run off lead and go back to Doggy Daycare for the first time in over 8 weeks! I know Rocky and Ruby have missed Norma from Doggy Daycare and she's missed them so what better image to use for my midweek reminder than Dog Walker Nikki....let me know what you thunk...

My card is a bit like'll love it or you'll hate it and I'm leaning closer to loving it today...tomorrow could be another story lol. I've tried and failed to use flowers and flourishes on my cards...I just don't have the knack to make them look amazing like a lot of you so for now I'm going to stick to plain and simple but I won't give up lol.

I've coloured the image with my Copics and used them for the sky and ground too. I cut clouds from my PTI dies and stamped Miss You from a set of Clearly Besotted sentiment stamps I was gifted. I roughed up the edges of the image with a sanding block and added twine and a button at the bottom. After sticking the image to the card blank with foam pads I added loads...and I mean LOADS...of WOS to Nikki's sweater, the dogs tags and the clouds so IRL my card is so sparkly you need sunglasses to look at it lol.

I've given Norma a few cards from Rocky and Ruby over the years using Buttercup and she's loved them so hopefully she'll love this one too :-D

I went a bit crazy with the camera this last week...the subject of course being Coen lol. He is now TEN months!!! You'll be happy to know I've managed to chose only 2 pictures to show you today lol.

I think Coen is obsessed with eating noses lol

Somehow I managed to add a filter to my phone camera and couldn't get it off for ages so all the pictures have this yellow tone but I kinda like it. He looks so much like his mom and uncles here.

Ryan's been busy since going back to LA. Thankfully the football/soccer season has started back a. He's also been taking acting lessons and doing a bit of modelling. He's applied for his Green Card which means he'll be able to take on paid acting and modelling jobs once it's been granted. In the meantime he does shoots to gain experience. Recently he was asked to do a photo shoot which turned into a photo shoot and a music video. If you have a spare 5 minutes and like Depeche Mode click on the link to see a re-creation of their Useless video. Ryan is the one at the left and takes his sunglasses off.

That's it from me for today. Coen is due to wake from his nap and after lunch we're going to get the train into East Kilbride for a mooch around. 

I hope you're having a fab week and it continues through to the weekend.

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x
