All in a Row

Good Evening blogger friends.

I hope you are all well and getting ready for the big man arriving. I have one more shift at work and then I am off until Friday. Yippee. I think I am more excited about having four days off work than Christmas.
We went to see Kayleigh yesterday and I will show you an update of Evie-Maie at the end of this post. We have also a new addition to the family. Kayleigh has two dogs and they have not been happy since Evie-Maie arrived home and have started to mess in the house and chew. It was a hard decision for her to make but she asked if we would take Candy.  Because we couldn't bear the thought of them going back to kennels we said yes on the condition that Abbie wasn't unhappy at sharing our affections. Russ's sister is having Bailey.
I have finally finished all the Christmas cards I needed to make and am shutting my craft room doors until the New Year. Although I may have to try and fight my way in there to tidy!!!
I am showing you a card I made with a LOTV stamp "All in a row", which I have had for a couple of years but only just coloured.
Sorry about the image - a bit blurred. I loved using these LOTV paper pads and was so sorry when I used the last of the tartan papers.
The red ribbon is from my stash and the tartan ribbon is from Asda's festive isle.
Here is the beautiful Evie- Maie.
And finally, the new addition to our family.
Candy is a cross. She has some staffi in her but I think maybe Dalmatian also as she has some black spots on her.
Kayleigh calls her the Gremlin

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Di's digi designs.  - Anything Christmas
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Who is going to win Strictly? All such brilliant finalists.
I am going to be doing some blog hopping now in between the dances.
