You & Me

Have been lying low since Christmas, full of the cold and a rather sad time with our Spanollie dog, Holly. We had to have her put to sleep as she could no longer take her weight on her legs. We were truly blessed with  Fifteen years of her company, such a loyal dog to us all and she will be so dearly missed. Hubby buried her in amongst the trees next to our burn and not far from the house. She spent many an hour playing in the water, having us throw in stones for her to catch so thought it was the place to lay her to rest. Think we're having a quiet night tonight, sneezing and runny noses not the best welcome to take into friends houses. I wish you all a good New Year when it comes.
My card has taken a few days to finish off and not to happy with my colouring. The sweet Saturated Canary image landed in my mail box as a freebie for buying some images just before Christmas A big thank you to Krista for her once again generosity .

Gorgeous card Carol. Love all the pretty details and the colour combo. Thanks for joining us at TG this week.

Sorry to hear about Holly. It's horrible when this happens. Spaniel types are such affectionate wee dogs. Our cocker, Lucy was nearly 15 when we lost her. She just loved people, not just her family, everyone!

Hope you feel better soon. Best wishes for 2013 to you and yours.
