Good Morning Ladies,
I have some more of Michele's fantastic boxes to share with you all today, it's hard to pick a favourite!
I love the Christmas Rose Box, mainly because it's unusual, you really don't see many cards with them on, it's usually all Poinsettia's. The Christmas Tree Box with the stars is a fabulous too, I love how everything coordinates so perfectly.
My second favourite is the Holly one, I love the colours of the card, the reds fading to pink, and that lovely fresh touch of green. What better treat to open on a dreary December day, as it slips out of its envelope and 'POPS' open revealing all its splendour, I am thinking it might be fun to add some confetti into the closed box as you slip it into the envelope, it would either make someone smile if they will be cursing you as they get the vacuum out!!
Thanks Michele for sharing your gorgeous cards with us, I also love the photo of your Christmas tree, I will wait to see if we get a few more and show them together.
Our tree survived its first encounter with the puppies, Sprockets super whippy tail did knock a couple of bits off but nothing breakable thankfully, Harley had a sniff and left well alone, he is a few weeks older than Sprocket (Dalmatian puppy), I didn't realise how much more 'mature' he'd become until we were looking after them yesterday. Paul looked after them all day but was on nights, so Sophie, Lucy and I were on duty in the evening, wow, one puppy is so much easier than two!!
They had been so good all day, Paul took them on a good 2 to 3 mile walk in the afternoon, so they were both happy to get in the crate to go to sleep, the girls room them out at about 6.30, before we gave them their dinner, but Harley refused to go back in his crate, (it's huge and has been his home since he was tiny), he just laid, spread eagle on the floor, like the children did as toddlers, when they didn't want to get in the pushchair or car seat, ours used to go stiff, so you couldn't fasten them in!
So we decided to leave Harley laying on the bedroom floor, we checked a couple of times and all was well, they were both sleeping off their tea. So I went in my craft room to make the gift card holder, after about 45 minutes I thought I would go and check on them again, as I approached the door I heard rustling, so my heart sank, I opened the door very slowly, not wanting to look, you can imagine the mixture of panic and hilarity as I my eyes fell upon a large Border Collie, sat there with his "look sad and she won't tell me off eyes" a huge pile of shredding cardboard at his feet mixed with shiny plastic packets and a Tampax swinging from his mouth, he had gotten in to their shopping bag and found the tampon box intriguing, I was amazed at how many he had opened, those things are fiddly!! I just couldn't tell him off, i called the girls to come and see what he had done, they thought it was hilarious, it took us a good half hour to collect all the bits off the floor, needless to say Matt didn't find it nearly as amusing As we did, Jodie did though.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
