So who runs this show ?

Clearly Buffy and George think they do, but I've got news for them..............but I feel a bit to jaded to argue after my busy weekend................so perhaps they know better than me right now............which means just a couple of doggy pictures and a brayered share with apols for not going into details on this occasion.

But it was a really great weekend, a fabulous workshop on Saturday and I met lots on new faces, some of who travelled a good few miles to get to Stampalot.......a big thank you to each and every one of you all for coming and helping make it such a fun day.

Then yesterday we spent the day in London with one of our son's and DIL and had a great trip to the new Westfield shopping centre....is it big or what !! And they have a champagne bar right in the middle of the complex............before you ask, yes of course we tried it out......it would have been rude not to ! I can recommend the Kiri Royal.


The terrible twins, Daisy the Duracell dog in front and Lily..........they do have their own baskets of course, but why use them when you can steal Georges ?

Thanks for visiting and I will catch you all again in a day or so when I am feeling a bit more human.

Such a great card, and your dogs are so beautiful! Just had to check when I saw the first picture of the lab and retriver. It reminds me of the dogs my stepmom had, and still had for years after she moved in with my father. They where a bit mixed, but looked like a black lab and a golden retriver, and they had the same mother. Great dogs, so kind and calm. If I ever have a dog, it has to be a dog like that. :p

Your photos are smashing Brenda and I just love your card. What you cant do with a brayer, aint worth knowing in my opinion. You always make such beautiful cards. I wouldnt even know where to start. Lee x

Paula (PEP) said...

The depth & play of light in the grassland either side of the track is terrific & I love the way you've hinted at the morning sunrise with the sky. I hope George reciprocates with regard to the basket dilemma. Take care of yourself - sounds very hectic indeed.
