Spring has sprung

It sure has!  We have been having such lovely weather this past week in the UK, long may it last!  I’ve got spring fever so thought I would carry that through on to today’s card.   And of course this little doggie is a Tricolour Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, what else lol.  

And speaking of Cavaliers, our Sidney has settled in really well.  He looks like a puppy after the groomer got hold of him, albeit a severely underweight puppy :(  His coat was so matted right to his skin in places the poor little lad had to be shaved.  I am sad though as he is terribly hand shy, I went to put his collar and lead on for his walk last night and he could not have seen me coming, poor wee lad was so petrified he flattened  to the floorl and wet himself.  I just hate seeing a dog in this state – makes me SO MAD!!!!!

I have had this stamp for months and only twigged yesterday that it was a Cavalier, guess who had it inked up in 2 seconds flat rofl.

And yes I am back to my pinks again.  I have fallen in love with this Echo Park paper, aren’t the colours just delish!

Card Recipe:
Stamp: Spring has Sprung coloured with Copics
Paper: Echo Park Springtime Blossoms
Border Die: Marianne Design Creatables Broderie Border
Embellies: All flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts25mm wild rose, 20mm rose, 15mm roses and 10mm roses.  Ribbon is from Craft Fairy.

I am dashing out the door in a mad rush, think of me today sat in the boardroom all day in a HM Revenue and Customs meeting …… I know what I would much rather be doing …… anything lol.

  1. Awww... I do love all the little puppy dogs ♥ Mine looks hilarious right now because I snipped and snipped and snipped, but he hates it and won't hold still! My hubby says that he won't take him out because he's embarrassed (my hubby, not the dog - he doesn't care what he looks like, just give him treats lol!)
    Very sweet card Bev :)
    Love n hugs,
    Lori

  10. Awwww, this card is beautiful and such a lovely stamp.

    Poor Sidney - I'm sure things will improve as he settles in more (how can folk treat animals like that) he will soon get to know just how much you love him.

  14. Hi Bev
    what a lovely card, love the D.P., and the image is so sweet. It makes me SO MAD too, to hear of cruelty to animals, WHY do people have animals in the first place IF they can't look after them. Thank goodness there are mostly good people out there, who love & look after their animals, my daughter-in law being one of these. She has been left devastated, a friend lost her beloved dog in a freak accident, another dog somehow managed to get under her dogs collar while out walking, they were unable to release the dog, and her poor dog died, they are heartbroken.

  41. Hi Bev! First of all, thank goodness Sydney has you to care for him... soon his fears will be replaced with complete trust in you and all will be well! I agree, it just infuriates me what some people will do to an animal!!!
    Your card is just so adorable, I love it and the flowers and embellishments are, of course, the perfect fit!!!
    Hugs,

  48. It certainly is a lovely image and the card is gorgeous. I am so sorry that your poor boy seems to have had such a traumatic life, but at least he is in the right place now. We have adopted two dogs from the Dogs Trust and know the mental scars they carry.

  50. Oh I love your card and the DP is so pretty!!
    I am a dog lover too! I have a Jack Russell who is totally blind, but is very smart and finds his way around!! and a Rat Terrier, who is the most sweetest dog I have ever had!! In the States you have to do a senor project to graduate from High School, and my daughter did her's on cruelty to animals. She arranged a bowling tournament and raised over 800 dollars for the SPCA!! I was very proud of her!! Have a good day and kept us up to date with your new baby!!

  58. Give him lots of love and loving talk (baby talk, if you will). Have everyone refrain from surprising/startling him. If it happens hold him close to your heartbeat until HE's ready to get down. Try to do things on his terms. Easy on the treats for weight control. Wish you all well.
    Peace, Becky Johnson (Ps I'm not a quack).

  59. It's just gorgeous Bev, especially the stamp, love it!

    Poor Sidney, he'll get used to you and at some point even come to you, may take a while though. This is a vey damaged dog, I think you'll have to be very patient with this boy! The hair will grow back and with it maybe his confidence in mankind.
    Hugs and I hope your day wasn't too hard,
