Welcome to my world of craftiness

New dies….New puppy…

Hi everyone. I purchased a couple of new dies the other day, so I thought I would use them, its the Justrite stitched A2 banners and rectangles, and justrite vintage labels ten, also used heartfelt creations raindrops on roses, flowers from wild orchid crafts, paper from my stash and the metal charm from the pearl girl. The other photo is the new addition to my family, her name is Bella, 14 week old chihuahua. I saw her advertised on Facebook so I dragged my sister along to see her. she wasn’t living in the best conditions so I bought her home, my Sister took this pic in the car on the way home.  She is coming out of her shell now and getting more confident, she will have a 5* home with me. I’ll keep you updated on her progress xxx
