Challenge #12 Peace


With the theme of Peace, I found myself drawn to this image of
  Chickadees from Sparkle N Sprinkle.    I wanted a soft elegant feel to the card and used a combination of rice papers, simple shapes and paper flowers.  The image was colored with copics also in soft hues.

Life Goes On... 

Well, you'd be glad to know I'm chasing my butt around trying to get caught up again... LOL 
And our household is puppy-ized for the most part although we're finding all kinds of fun things to chew on around the house.

Here's our boy... Aladdin's Good Time Charli


A very close B&W photo taken on one of his many visits out this week.  Charli has been socializing alot since her arrived home and he's a perfect angel when he's meeting everyone... once home well, he likes to be the boss.  Quite a confident little (now) 9 week old pup!  He is a real character and is very vocal about what he does and doesn't want.  Boyd and I are learning alot of things with him!


Thought for the day...

Okay, why is my sock wet?

Life Goes On..... Welcome Charli!

Life Goes On..... Welcome Charli! 

Today is the day we welcomed Charli (officially) to our lives...






We'd love to thank Carol & Rob for a beautiful puppy from their grand champions
 Surf and Rumour & Aladdin Cocker Spaniels
I found myself with a few tears as I/we closed a chapter in our lives with our sweet Ali and started a new one with Charli.  His ride home (about an hour) was awesome... He slept most of the way and played a little as he was pretty tuckered out.  We made a stop at Boyd's parents (aka Mom & Dad) to introduce Charli to them and he took to them and their house in a split second.  After a little visit, we headed a block and a half up the street and welcomed him into our home.  After checking out the kitchen, dining room and living room, having a snack, he was zonked out.  
Into his crate he went and he's having a great snooze.  

Thought for the day...
my heart is officially lost to Boyd and Charli...

Special Wishes...

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:

Vintage/Steampunk

(plus a sentiment)

Special Wishes...



Special Wishes coming your way with the fun image from Lollyrot Illustrations.... I used the name-sake Lollyrot colored with copics and set the image with a collection of maps, old striped papers, embossed papers, paper flowers and lace ribbon. I was hoping for a mix between this week's theme of Vintage/Steampunk....  Thinking of keeping it all fairly monochromatic was also my thought - more of an aged look.  All the pieces were grey chalked edged to accent the aged feeling.

Thank You...


It's time again for the
challenge. 

This week's challenge is:

Add a Doodle to it!
(plus a sentiment)

Thank You...


This card is a collection of images.... the Leaf Doodle 3 and Thank You (from the Word collection) plus a Chinese character symbol for Grace.  The Leaf Doodle is colored with copics and buttermilk & gold spicas set on gold and red backing.  The Thank You and Chinese character are also set on gold & red backing with the gloss gold accent strips on top of a green printed rice paper.  I wanted to keep this simple and had first thought about doing a sympathy card but it felt more lending itself to a Thank You card.

Life Goes On....
As I write this we are one week away from bringing home our new boy Charli.... OH MY GOSH!  All the boys are so super sweet and I know that Carol has a tough decision as to which one she'll keep for a show dog.... I have an strong feeling of which might be our boy but I'm not going to let it out until next week, where he'll be shown here on this blog.... 
LOL just know Charli will be a blonde boy!  hee hee....
I've been busy getting puppy things ready... getting the crate set up (until he's able to sleep thru the night and then it'll be on our bed!), dishes and food, dental care, leashes & collars, harnesses, seat belt harness and toys.... then we'll have to acclimate him at my in-laws where they are anxiously waiting for Charli to be at their place when Boyd and I are at work.  
He's going to be one spoiled dog!!!!
We were up this weekend to see the litter and they had their first experience out on grass.  Fortunately we had a warm enough moment to take the pups outside and they thought this was great fun checking out all the leaves and bushes and then finding mom & dad in the other fenced area nearby.  Their parents would bowl them over too much to have them run around together so they had fun trotting through our legs and across the lawn.  Carol and Rob have three grassed areas for the dogs and the largest area is set up for agility training and running around.  
What a play paradise!

In celebration of our new boy I did get a chance to add some new images to the store...









Thought for the day....

*sigh*
My heart will be lost to two boys... Boyd & Charli

Okay what gives?  We've got snow!  Ugh!  Enough already!  I can't take any more!  Seems like we just get to the start of a wonderful spring then BAM! Snow!
So I've been committed to getting healthy... I am on my 3rd month of healthier living... March's motivator is to drink more water!  Yep!   And I'm still keeping up with January's exercise regularly and February's eat more fresh fruit and veggies....I'm gonna conquer this extra tire I carry around!  I've been doing the stairs on my days on at work (7 flights - 134 steps up and then 2 flights down 1 up combo to get back down) my thighs are burning and I'm breathing hard.  Add core pilates and a 30 day squat challenge... I'm having a hard time to sit down on the biffy!   LOL

How's everyone today?  It's another Spring day here...not super sunny but warmer and the grasses are just starting to show some spring green.  Soon enough the earth will warm even more and the lush of spring will unfold.  It is such a pretty time of the year....

I'm finishing off a long week of work and seems like its a game of catch up... 
good thing I've got a good glove! 

Thought for the Day...


Dalai Lama
Try to remain truthful. The power of truth never declines. Force and violence may be effective in the short term, but in the long run it’s truth that prevails. Being honest and truthful engenders trust and trust leads to friendship and a good reputation. Because we all need friends, honesty and transparency are a basic aspect of human nature.

Stay true, my friends...

My Pad? Or Yours?

It's time again for the
challenge. 

This month's challenge is:
Toad-ally Unfrogettable! 
Here at Scribbles Designs, we love frogs.  There is one in particular who is dear to our hearts.  His name is Carl, and he is a bit of a suave character.  So, this month we pay homage to Carl and all the other amphibians out there. It is time to dust off those lily pads and make a creation with a toad or frog as part of the design.   Hop to it!   We know you'll come up with something completely unfrogettable!

My Pad? Or Yours?


I knew I needed to use Carl and for this challenge I decided to create an image with Cool Carl... so here's a new image of Carl and his lily pad (Carl's Pad)... and it goes perfect with the sentiment My Pad? Or Yours? I used a number of papers, layered , all on a 5x7 card...


You can join in on the current challenge at Scribbles Designs Challenge here....

How's your spring coming along?  Ours has finally started which is wonderful.  Although it now means cleaning up the yard which to me right now is quite daunting...
I'm patiently (ya' right Boyd says!!!) for Charli's homecoming... we'll go get our new little boy on April 6th and we still don't know which one of the boys he'll be as of yet as Carol will pick her choice.  She's waiting for the boys to start moving to see how they will show in the ring.  It's all exciting... I've been up to see the litter a couple of times and they're getting more and more interactive with you. They are all so cute and starting to show their personalities and *sigh* puppy breath...

Thought for the day...

Gonna enjoy a glass...
