A Card & A Ruby Doodle!!!

I've been wading through my Graphic 45 papers when I could snatch a minute this weekend and here's one of the cards I made with the Botanicabella papers.
The fruit and foliage you can see in the background has been cut from another sheet and attached over the script paper.........shan't be doing that again in a!!!
The pieces of burgundy paper have been punched with one of my new Martha Stewart border punches and the pears have been coated with Glossy Accents. At last I have a couple of decent new pics of our Ruby Doodle who came to visit yesterday.
Just look at that gorgeous little face.......I just want to keep kissing her she is so cute.
Aunty DD changed her very first nappy and I was just about in hysterics at her antics. I don't think I've ever seen anyone change a nappy with the very edges of their finger nails before.........and the noises she was making.........sounded like she was being!!!
Poor old hubby went out at eight 'o' clock this morning to have the car MOT'd and he is only just on his way home now as they found one of his wheels was buckled and it's had to be replaced.
Unfortunately we now only have one car so DD couldn't follow him in to bring him home and he has been stuck in town all day waiting for it.
To cheer him up I have made a lovely Split Pea Soup with Cheese Scone Triangles for his tea.
DD and I have just had ours and it was really yummy.

Well after I have fed hubby I shall go and snuggle up in my workroom until bath time. It's pretty nippy down here in the computer room.

Thanks for dropping by.

  5. A beautiful card Sheila (love the colours) but an even more beautiful Ruby Doodle.

    The image you conjured of DD changing Ruby's nappy reminded me of my lovely DIL when she had our gorgeous Alexa. She was ages before she could change her nappy without physically heaving. I used to be in hysterics!
