Sunday Sketch on time!

The days are flying by here at the Puppy's Palace!  I tell you I am run ragged!  Next time you see a plea on my blog for help finding another puppy PLEASE shoot me!!  lol!  She is a REAL handful but I can't help but laugh as she is such a cheeky rascal!  For example she gruffs and growls when you lift her at night to put her in her bed!!  I mean, the cheek of it?!  
She's tearing around the place, usually hanging on to Honeys fur in the process as they play chase.  Honey is ok at the moment as she can jump up onto the sofas to get away from the terror but Im sure that wont last too long!
Three days after she arrived she was up and down the stairs at a rate of knots that would impress a greyhound!  However, on her third day she was just too fast and ended up at the bottom quicker than she intended.  Ooh my heart was thumping as I rushed to her at which point she picked herself up and hared after Honey like a thing possessed!  Its never a dull moment here folks!

Right, card stuff!  Im feeling quite pleased with myself for actually getting this done in time to actually play with this weeks challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp, too often I play along and then dont post the card in time!

I made this card for Steve's birthday earlier this week and I used an image that I first saw when Jules sent me a couple of images, I knew I had to own him too; he is 'Birthday Dog' by Penny Black!  The gorgeous papers are from a pad by DCWV 'Naturals' and they are the kind that I struggle to use as they are toooo lovely!  Ive had the pad for many months and just couldn't bring myself to use it but I felt Steve was worth it!

The die cut sentiment on the bottom of the easel was cut on my Silhouette from copper pearlised card and the stamped sentiment is also Penny Black.

Id like to enter this into the following challenges

Sunday Sketch & Stamp - I used their sketch
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Really enjoyed cahtching up with you and reading the antics of your new family membeer.

She doesn't sound unlike Daisy who at one is still as big a handful as when we got her, whreas her sister lilly is as placid as can be.

I am planning buying shares in a dod bed cocmpany, well actually I've prpbably already got them the number we have bought since the puppies arrived. And Daisy does not rip up just her own, ooh no, she likes to share the treat.

But you have to admit they are little characters, each in their own way and we wouldn't be without them.

LOL she sounds like a typical puppy. A complete handful!! I can't believe she is growling already when you put her in her bed!! They are very strong minded Jacks! Millie growls at me if I dare to move her when she is settled and comfy! lol
great card and love that image! xx
