Happy Christmas to you!!I hope that you all had a wonderful day with family and friends and are enjoying this often relaxing Boxing Day. I had a lovely day shared with friends - lovely company, beautiful food and spoilt as always - Sally included! We have been saying for months that Summer has been hiding - but she came out in full force for Christmas Day - 37 degrees! A total scorcher!
So with the rush all over (unless you're braving the shops today) it's time to share the last and possibly the year's cutest Christmas card :-) I saw this by Laura Bassen and knew it would be perfect for some of our doggie friends. And as such, why meddle with perfection and so it became a rather rare CASE. I am still learning Copic colouring so it was a great reason for some practice and also the background is created using my new Distress Inks.
We made a couple of these - for one of our park friends and family and the other to accompany our annual hamper for the Vet Referral Hospital in Hallam as Sally's Specialist and team have always been so very generous to both of us.
For the occasion, Miss Sally was dressed in her Elf costume, and to save time, we decided to do this at the Park after her walk so she could still roll in the grass beforehand. In theory this was a good idea. But in practice it was very costly as I tool my mobile phone out of my pocket and put it on the grass... a toddler with Grandad in tow wanting to give her a pat was enough of a distraction and we left the park without it. Suffice to say it was stolen and so...a new phone was needed and quickly as it was the Friday before Christmas! However the staff at the Clinic were very happy to see her and made a lovely fuss of her :-)
UPDATE: It turns out my hairdresser called me shortly after I'd left the park and "got some guy who found your phone in a park". Anthony then made the huge effort to pick it up and contact me via Facebook to return it. And with Apple's "cooling off" policy, I was able to return the new phone too.
So nice to have a good new story at Christmas :-) Taking a cake into the salon was the least I could do!
