Wishing and smiling...


 Good morning, I'm snatching a quick moment to share this card - I've been trying to find time all week but someone is keeping me busy just now...

I have used some gorgeous stamps from Colorado Craft, coloured with Copic markers, papers from stash and die cut flowers.

Here's the little someone who has been taking up most of my time....
he's clutching the new toy that his 'auntie' sent him for Easter! 
He is growing so quickly- he put on 2 kilos in 2 weeks and now weighs 10 kilos, he's teething like crazy and it bloomin' hurts when he succeeds in testing them out on me!!! I won't be sorry when he grows out of that habit. He's a really good boy at night now- sleeps from 11pm- 7am - no accidents!
His training is coming along nicely too- at present we're having a one-to-one session with a trainer for half an hour a week and as soon as they open up again he'll be going to puppy socialisation classes. It's only a few days now until he can go for a short walk in the park which we're really looking forward to.
I can't believe that it's only just over 3 weeks since we brought him home, he has definitely filled our home and our lives- hard work sometimes but such fun!
I love that he looks as if he's smiling when he's asleep :)

 


Thanks for stopping by

Chris

ahhh Marvin has stolen my heart, your post, and one adorable little boy... I am hoping Bella has this colour too, can't wait to get her and start her training. Her Crate turned up today so that will help as well.
Now, nearly forgot onto your card, gorgeous colours and love that stamp Chris... take time out and enjoy your walks when you can, something we love to do too..
sending hugs. xx

Your card is gorgeous. You have a wonderful new family member, what a cutie. My son got another puppie so he is also complaining of those scissor sharp teeth. Enjoy!

Fabulous card, Chris. The image is so cute....as for Marvin, he's even cuter! xx

Perfect card. I am so in love with the image. Nearly as much as I am in love with your baby. The hard work pays off when you have a good boy that you can literally take everywhere with you, better behaved than my kids and doesnt answer back

Janette said...

Oh Chris he is so gorgeous, adorable boy and so happy in his home with you obviously. Your card is beautiful, almost forgot that.xx

Love those Bunnies, they make a super Spring card, thanks so much for joining our AG/Mono theme at Allsorts challenge.

But the star of the show is of course Marvin, he's beautiful, looks like a Red Fox Lab? We have a new yellow coming at end of the month.

Your card is absolutely adorable but Marvin is stealing your time and the limelight lol. He is such a gorgeous colour. Oh I remember those days, great fun when I was younger lol. But as you say they make themselves at home in your house and your heart.

Wow, hasn't Marvin got big since the last picture I saw on your blog and so adorable, hard to be cross with that cute little face and it's amazing how quickly they become a very important part of your family.
Another beautiful card and stamp with the perfect sentiment of the day. Great colourways too. Michelle x
