Teddies, Flowers & My Crafting Buddy....

Good Morning...
I hope you all had a lovely valentines day.  Me and my OH exchanged cards but don't tend to bother with all the hype of it.  The card was typical of Steve's humour, the sentiment was...my nuts are yours & I don't just say that to anyone!!! Lol
 It's my oldest nieces 21st birthday today so we''ll be celebrating over the weekend and I''ll be having a belated birthday drink.  I was full of cold last weekend so didn't fancy much celebrating when it was mine last week. 

Anyway onto my cards which I made for an order....first up is one using an image from Teddy Bo and Kaisercraft papers.  The buttons, Tea House brads and pearls are all available in my store.
Challenges:-
1 - Crafty Sentiment / Valentines, Love
2 - Crafty Ann / Love Is All Around
3 - Crafty Catz / Valentines, Love
4 - One Stop Crafts / Love
5 - Totally Gorjuss / Love

*************************************************

And a very different style of image for me from Imag-e-nation and again Kaisercraft papers.  Again the pearls and ribbon are from my store.
Challenges:-
1 - Secret Crafter / A Stamper Flower
2 - One Stitch At A Time / Make It Pretty

*************************************************

And have you seen the new blog ''Crafting Buddies''....this is what Joanne who has set the blog up wrote:-

''Having been an avid fan of What's on your Workdesk Wednesday for some time, I have noticed how many crafters have little helpers around. With that in mind, I though it may just be nice if we were able to show these 'buddies' off on a blog designed just for

So here is my crafting buddy...well I call him my partner in crime as you can see on my sidebar.  Tyson is an 11 month old staffie which we acquired from my niece, she is always out and about so didn't get the time to give him the attention he needed.  Staffie's get so much bad press but I have to say he is the most adorable and loving dog I have ever known. 
I had him sat at the computer doing some commenting for me....I think this look says ''That's enough blogging for one day mummy now lets go play'' He, he ;-)
He had his first pooch pampering session yesterday...poor little fella was sat in a cage with heaters around him when I went to collect him from the dog groomers, he doesn't like dryers.  Wonder if that has something to do with me chasing him with the hairdryer when I do mine!! Lol

Hugs
Emma & Tyson x

I have only met one "bad" Staffie and most of that was down to upbringing. It is not the breed but the owners. We have had more trouble with little dogs, who never get training because they are so little they can be picked up. Tyson looks so friendly and happy.

Gorgeous cards Emma, love the papers and image on the first card and the little buttons are uber cute! Fab photo of Tyson :) Donna x

Sweet cards Emma!

Clare said...

Oh Tyson is adorable and loving those black patches around his eyes!!!. It is a shame Staffies are all labelled the same Emma. I reckon how we treat our animals determines their temperament. Animals should be there to be loved and treated with respect, if we do we receive it back ten fold from them. Hope we will get to see piccies of the kitties too very soon Emma. Great blog hun. Hugs Clare xxx
