Lots of bits and bobs and a new family member too!



















Hi Everyone!

Thought it was about time I updated my blog :)

The last few weeks we have been kept really busy with the kids being off school and having some of my family popping over for a visit from Dublin, which was lovely!

Not much time for crafting, but can now show you a card I managed to put together in time for my friends Carole's birthday.
Those of you who follow Carole's blog may recognise the little ticket. I know Carole is very fond of using these in her cards, so thought I would see what I could do with it, and here's what I've come up with, an Elephant card! :)

We also took a visit to Butterfly World in St.Albums during the Easter break, which was amazing!!!!
It's an ongoing project, but wonderful to visit such a lovely place, and see such beautiful butterflies fluttering around you in so many different shapes, sizes and bright colours. We even managed to pop some on our fingers, but would you believe it, forgot to take our camera :( defo worth another visit though, and the camera is ofcourse a must :)

We also took a trip to lovely Dorset last week-end which was just wonderful!
So many places to visit, including Durdle Door which is stunning!!
A heck of a walk to get there though, as you can see from the pics, but so worth it! and yes, it really does look like a dragons head dipping into the sea :)

While we were there, we popped into my friends Carole's. Apart from giving her the shock of her life (as she didn't know we were coming, lol!) she and her family gave us a lovely warm welcome, and we all sat in her beautiful garden and had tea and homemade cake (as made by Carole) It was just scrummy as was her beautiful home :)

Lastly, and perhaps the biggest thing of all (at least for us :) was that we now have a new member to the family :) Our little puppy, Barney!
He is just soooooo scrummy!!! but can honestly say it's like having a baby in the house again, lol!
He is a great little boy, only eight weeks and seems very calm, and already loves to play fetch, which is fab!
Anyway, I will keep you posted on the doggy progress, and would welcome any advise on good doggy insurance, but for now, here are a few photos, hope you like them....

Hugs
Suzie xxxxx :)

Love (in no particular order) - your photos, your card, your surprising Carole ....but just adore Barney! He is soooooo cute! Max sends hugs and says that Barney is a very clever puppy as he's now 9 years old and still hasn't learnt to fetch (he retrieves OK but thinks it's more fun for you to chase him to get whatever he's retrieved!).
Hugs xx
p.s. Have you had him microchipped? Well worth doing. Our pet insurance is with More Than -quite pricey as Max is now 9 but gives excellent cover. HTH.

Great pics and your new 'baby boy' is just gorgeous!

Sam Wright said...

Super cute card, love all the photos and omg howw cute is your baby pup!!

Carole said...

I love my elephant card Suzie - thanks again! Thanks also for coming to see us, it was a really lovely surprise (thank heavens I had baked a cake, but why is it that no one ever visits when you've actually done some housework, only when you haven't?!!!) It was great to spend some time with you and your lovely family.

Glad you enjoyed your visit to Dorset, and I agree, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door are indeed beautiful although rather an effort to get back up to the car park!

Barney is such a cutie! Bless him. Delighted that you finally became a dog owner - only the best people you know!

Lots of love and hugs

Hi Susie

How cute is that little man - I've had two Cockers in the past, both Blue Roans, called Breagh (Gaelic for sunshine) and Domino (two white spots on her back). Both as mad as hatters but so lovable. I bet the boys adore him?

I think I definitely need to head south for a holiday - not been down there for many years - Dorset looks gorgeous.

Nice to see you back in blogland missus.

Hi Suzie, just love Barney, he's soo cute. Have got a good saying for a puppy layout,
'There is a puddle on the floor
Tis plain for all to see!
Now is that puddle H2O
Or is it K9P?'
I used it on a layout when we got ur new pup. Have fun! Hugs Sam x

Hi I'm Maria... said...

Hi I'm Maria... said...

thank you very much suzie for your lovely comments on my blog about my graduation LO...

as for the rosette die, I got mine from cutting edge crafts as cheaper and no P&P.... I got the 2 size one they also do a larger one now, but not sure if I would use that one much...

you take care and look forward to seeing more photos of your new member of the family...xx

Suzie, Barney is the cutest puppy!! fab family photos, do I see an album coming in the future? the card is gorgeous! all the photos are great, such amazing quality, but my 2 faves are the one of your 2 boys walking away from the camera and the country lane, (reminded me of the title shots of Secret Army, many moons ago now), hugs, Fi xx

Welcome to your new addition! Barney is soooo cute!
I'm sure he will bring you as much joy as our 2 do (yes we are still looking after my dads dog!!!)
I use Sainsbury's pet insurance and couldn't recommend it more as Chester has an ongoing skin complaint and we have made serveral claims with no problems at all!
Glad you all had such a great Easter!
hugs Alyson x

Aww he's adorable. My sister has just been to mine to pick up her cocker Fudge who we looked after while she went to a wedding. She told me she is taking her to 'meet' a poodle tomorrow to see if they 'get on' so I had to show her your pics. She loved them. Debs xx
