Happy Anniversary

Here's a card I made for my Mum and Dad's Wedding Anniversary last month (34 years!!). I was really unsure about this one, but I know Mum and Dad favour neutral, classic colour schemes. I'd always stamped this wheel in pretty, spring colours, so it was interesting to try something different with it. The colours are black and Sahara Sand. I've coloured with my neutrals Watercolour crayons. There's some black grosgrain ribbon and some vintage brads for a touch of class, and then some scallops done with the Corner Rounder (guard removed). One of the flowers have been popped up on Dimensionals.

And now, some really exciting news...Look what we got!!
This is Coco (aka CocoPops), the newest member of our family. It feels like he's always been here already. He's just slotted straight into our lives. We picked him up yesterday from Monika's Doggie Rescues. He's a 2yo Maltese cross who was rescued from a pound, and was waiting to be adopted by us! He's been just amazing. He hasn't barked (yet), loves the kids, LOVES pats and cuddles, and just wants to be where we are. He's obviously had some training, and can fetch, sit, walk on a lead, come, drop and stay and he's house-trained too. Why anyone would let this treasure go is beyond me! If you're looking for a pet, I would highly recommend a rescued dog!
