My Dog Is A Gleek!

It's been so cold here lately and Susie has really been feeling the cold so what with Christmas coming up and all I decided to buy her a doggie jumper. I'm not mad about dogs wearing clothes but I think this works and I felt so sorry for her shivering all the time.

She didn't look like she was enjoying it too much......

But then she started loving it!

I didn't realise when I bought it but a friend pointed out (yes Mona I'm talking about you!) that she looks like she belongs on "Glee" LOL

Rachel sure does like her Argyle.

And just because I'm a total Gleek here's a little vid, I love this!


Mami Doodles GD Challenge: Cherish Your Online Friends

This weeks Mami Doodles Challenge is to send a card to another member of the DT in the spirit of Christmas and all.
I'm sending a card to Deirdre.

I actually made 2 cards for this weeks Mami Doodles Challenge (I know what happened?? LOL)

My first one was using this gorgeous image called "Santa I Can Explain"
I love this image. I used Fancy Pants Happy Holidays Paper that I think I've had for about 2 years {blush}

For this one I used "The Star Fairy" image, I love this image because you also have a version for a New Years Card and you know you always need those as there's always someone that gets forgotten. I used Anitas Red Christmas Papers and I really don't know how long I've had these (in other words a LONG time)

I want to say a big THANK YOU to Elisa for asking me to be Guest Designer for December and if you haven't already then you NEED to check out her Mami Doodles images because they're fantastic!
Also if you want to have a chance to win some of her great images go HERE to enter the challenge.

Guest Designer At Mami Doodles: Anything Goes

The lovely Elisa over at Mami Doodles asked me to be her guest designer for December. I was honoured to be asked and of course said YES!

Elisa has just released some gorgeous new images for Christmas. I dare you to go and look and not want them all!
There's "The Star Fairy", "The Storyteller", "Christmas Wreath" & "Santa I Can Explain" which is the December Promo item and means that you get that one free when purchase any stamp through the month of December.

On my project I used the "Christmas Wreath" Stamp and made this little wall hanging. I love this stamp, you actually get 2 stamps one with the door and one without.

Five years ago on Today FM's Ray Darcy show they compiled a book of photos that told the story of a day in the life of Ireland. The money raised from selling the book went to charity. They asked the public to send in photos and were amazed with the success of it.

Five years on and they decided to do it again this time to raise money for Barnardos Childrens Charity.
The idea was to take photos on Oct 2nd and email them in to the show.

Saturday Oct 2nd 2010 was a very, very wet day here in Tipperary but I decided I wanted to join in. So I grabbed my camera and started taking pics.

The day started with myself and Susie having a lie-in.
Here she is in her bed all curled up.

After lunch with no sign of the rain clearing I decided to head to "The Lookout". I love this place and it feels like being on top of the world. Unfortunately it was so wet that I had to sit in the car for quiet a while.

Finally the rain eased off a bit and I got out and tried out the panoramic mode on my camera for the first time.

On the way home I popped into the local shop for a few bits and spotted the ice-cream machine so I got myself a 99 and was told it would be the last one I could have for a while because they were packing up the machine for the winter. I love my 99's SO much.
While sitting in the car I snapped a pic of my 99, just for fun.

So I sent off my pics disappointed with how few I managed to take and thought to myself that I didn't have a hope of any of them making it into the book especially as I heard them saying that they got in 21,000 pics and how great they all were.

I picked up my book today in Easons (they were nearly all gone)and was told that they only arrived in 2 hours before and would definitely be gone by the end of the day.

I got home made a cuppa and sat down to flick through the book and imagine my surprise when I saw one of my pics in the book.

I was laughing at the one that got added. Out of them all that was the biggest surprise and to think I nearly didn't send it. Then I thought "Why didn't I paint my nails that day?"

Starting Tomorrow.....

Over on Elsie Flannigan's Blog

SO exciting, are you gonna join in??
