New stuff

New stuff #1
Grandma arrived with her new puppy spin. Aw! Of course the best photo of him I took without a flash. waah! so here he is in black and white. which is a shame as he is really a red collie (that's a kind of brown really). Now don't let Dutch our dog see these because he is not allowed on the sofa...

New stuff #2
I have had my hair chopped
Had to endure a ticking off from the hairdresser about the state it was in!

This isn't really a good photo of the front as it swings forward more. But the back is quite cool
New stuff #3
its card dare day and it was my turn to choose a theme. Mwah, hah, hah, hah.
This week you can do ANYTHING you like on a card BUT you can only use one colour.

I have enjoyed "helping" the team work out what is allowed and what is not. It is a shame to give up the power now!
anyway here is my humble attempt.
I used a March SA kit card and stamped sentiment. Aunt Sarah's Bloomer, Bazzill button, green staples from the 99p shop, Sophistiquins green sequins from Get Crafty and various bits of paper and vellum from my pile of green card and paper. The card swings out and I must add that the paper you can only see a little of has a green fleck on a very light green background and is NOT white (!)

New Stuff #4
I won the draw on Tracie's blog for some chipboard shapes. I am in awe of her talent and I think I have this idea that if I have some of her chipboard I will be able to scrap like her.
I know, but a girl can dream!

well we are heading into Holy Week - a very special week for me as I remember the last week in the life of Jesus, his death on the cross for me and his bringing of new life through his resurrection. It is also a very busy week work wise followed by a break/collapse at my parents the week after. so it is likely that this blog will be neglected for a little while.
May you too know the hope of new life in Jesus
Happy Easter!

I often think Easter is actually more special than Christmas. Its when we can remember the immense and true sacrifice of our Saviour Jesus. I love all the detail on your card. Just lovely.
