Woopee, I've made the front cover again.

Yippiddy yip aye eee.  The set of cards I made with the Blond Moments products (available from Art From The Heart) are on the front cover of the May edition of Making Cards.  It really doesn't matter how many times you get front cover, it's still really exciting and I'm chuffed to bits.

Week 14's DT card for Polka Doodles blog was to make a wedding card.  I must confess I was very pushed for time so it had to be a quick one.  It's made with papers from the Love and Cherish CD, and I have printed the top paper onto iridescent sparkling white inkjet paper, and the the remaining bits are printed onto vellum.
I've highlighted the daisys and the heart by embossing the back of the main image with a medium sized ball tool.
And here is the new addition to my MIL's family.  Meet Muffin the 8 week old Bichon Frise, he is rather sweet and very cuddly.  Sammy was beside himself when we got round there last night.  He's always very excited when we are round there, but yesterday he just couldn't believe his eyes.  He spent the first 10 mins prodding muffin with his nose and crying at him in a bid to get him to play.  After Muffin growling at him in that really cute puppy growl that you just can't take seriously, he decided he had to investigate this new tan noisy animal that was bothering him.  Complete chaos after that, they were playing and chasing after each other and much giggling was had by all.  Sammy really was in his element and couldn't believe his luck.  Toby (MIL's other Bichon) was not so impressed and stayed out of the way of the noisy pair.  I tried to get a picture of the pair playing, but they were just moving too fast, lol
And just so baggins doesn't feel left out here is her royal purryness all snuggled up in my dressing gown.
On bank holiday Monday we took Sammy up the downs to Kingley Vale.  We found a nature trail when we got further into the woods.  I've lived down here since since 1981 and I never knew it was there.  

Mindyou, I haven't been to this particular spot since 1984 on Halloween night and it was pitch dark.  We went up there with the aim of looking for the witches that it's reported dance around on this special night!  Out of the group of us that went up there (now you have to remember we were all scooter riding punks and goths) only 4 of us were brave enough to venture further than the car park.  By the time we got to the woods the 2 men (woosey boys!!!) were very jumpy and refused to go any further.  Honestly, they really are all mouth and no trousers these men, lol.
Huh, Colin always teases me because I'm a bit pigion toed when I walk, well here is photographic evidence of Mr PENGUIN FEET!  He will be shown this the next time he starts!
I love wood in all shapes and forms, I'm almost obsessive about it in fact.  Colin got a bit fed up of having to stop and wait for me whenevr something caught my eye like this clump of clump knotted roots covered in moss.  It was like a magnet to me, and as I was there I just had to take a pic.
And we saw some buzzards, this one was kindy doing a display for us.  I took a couple of pics them grabbed my camcorder and started filming.  Only problem is I don't really know how to use it, LMAO.  I've ended up with the beginning and the end with me saying 'I don't know how to stop the b***** thing', but all the middle bit with the buzzard flying around has gone, I have no idea where but it's definitely not there!  So all I have is a couple of distant shots.  Next time maybe I might have more success.
Take care till next time.

Hope all's well with your babies.
