Little Myrtle

Hello and thank you for your visit.

We got home on Sunday evening after a lovely few days away spent with family and friends.  The wedding was lovely and the bride looked beautiful.

We did have one little hiccup which  could have been a disaster but I'll tell you about that in a later post.

I got an email last evening to say our friends have now picked up their new puppy, Myrtle.  So I made this card for them this morning and have just popped it in the post.

The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted die, the stamp is by DeNami and I used my new Spellbinders die set for the first time.

I used lots of snippets of card and my last piece of this grosgrain ribbon so am off to join in with the girls at Snippets Playground - Week 242

As I've been away for a few days I'm afraid I'm playing catch-up again with comments but will get round to visit you all over the next few days.


  1. I am sure your friends will love their pretty card and such a lovely gesture for their new puppy Barb.
