My poor we dog Squirt lost a nail on Monday, there was blood all over my kitchen floor. Frightened the life out of me!! Luckily I have the loveliest neighbour who is a 'doggy person' and she had him patched up in no time and even came back the next day to change the bandage! Thankfully he is as right as rain again so we are back to our nice long walks in this lovely weather!!
Have a great weekend everyone and I WILL  be visiting shortly.

Play the game....






I had a card request for a little boy who is always playing his hand held game and I of course went to Mo's Digital Pencil as I remembered seeing an image that would suit. This image comes with the little boy leaning against his dog but this little boy is really afraid of dogs so I had to cut round him. So in order to make him look ok I set him in the frame so he would have something to leave against lol. Are you bored yet?? lol

My poor son who lives over in England took a bad fall down the stairs yesterday morning. Knocked himself unconscious and they had to send for two ambulances to get him moved. The ambulance man said he was lucky he was unconscious as he could easily have broken his neck. Thankfully is has no broken bones but is badly bruised and strained with sore neck and back and pretty badly concussed. Never a dull moment with kids no matter what age!! My grandson just got his first two teeth through, parents are very excited lol!!
Hope you all get spoiled tomorrow in some way or other. If I get half an hour to sit and watch some telly I will be happy lol.

I have not been able to comment much last week as I have been having problems with my printer. I got a new one just a few weeks ago as the other one decided not to work any more. The cartridge lasted me 9 days so in order to save some money I decided to refill the cartridges myself. Big mistake. I have had a nightmare getting nice colour and quality!! I am just going to have to fork out for good cartridges and hope it all rectifies itself. Do any of you refill your own cartridges? Do any of you have a good link for best price cartridges? My printer is a Canon Pixma  and its a great printer as I can now print on card again which I couldn't do with my Epsom unfortunately. Any help would be appreciated and I will definitely be round to catch up with you all this week.

Welcome to my latest follower Desire Fourie! It a pleasure to have you follow my blog!

I had a request for a card for the staff of a nursery school to say thank you. The lady had been working with them all and wanted an extra special card as they were now all friends.
