I'm trying something new with Puppy Fritz, so I can have a bit of my life back while he's learning how to be a member of the family. Instead of leaving him loose in the house all the time (except when we eat) with me following him around, I put him in his crate for 30-60 minutes & then open the door & repeat the process. This way I will have some time to do what I need to or want to before 9pm when he goes to bed. He does take naps off & on, but even then I have to be where I can see if he wakes up. This should also help him learn that he won't be left for hours at a time in his crate, which we're sure he was up until we took him home. Anyway, I used the "me" time today to finally make a card so I could enter the current challenge at Merry Monday. Housework just has to wait--LOL! All my stamps are DeNami & the inks are PTI New Leaf & Classic Kraft. I stamped the window on vellum & again on white cardstock & fussy cut the flower box. After stamping the leafy pick using second & third generation stamping, the cardstock flower box was glued in place. The valences are made with the smallest Spellbinder scalloped oval & are glued in place on the white cardstock panel before the vellum panel is attached over it. I used a white gel pen & then Frosted Lace Stickles to add the look of frost or snow. I purposely didn't use a traditional Christmas green, but now that I'm done, I'm afraid it isn't very Christmasy.
Guess this will have to go to a blogging friend in the Southern Hemisphere. All the papers were scraps, so I'll add this over at Pixies Snippets Playground. I'm thinking this might qualify for SSS Monday since I started with just pieces of plain paper.
I appreciate everyone sticking with me as I try to catch up on leaving comments. I just felt like I had to make something today or I'd go crazy! Be assured, I've not forgotten you.
Fritz does make us laugh & I managed to capture one of the funny moments. He took his big bone into one of the crates, burrowed under the blanket & proceeded to chew his bone.
Finally a bit more of his head showed & I snapped this picture. We've started a class & he was very well-behaved the first night. Makes us hopeful that life will eventually get back to normal, more or less--LOL!
