long time no hear

ok i know i have been rubbish at posting lately, but look at what i have to distract me.

This is Jake.

This is Diamond(we havent come up with a better name yet).
They were six weeks old on Wednesday. They are so cute, and take up alot of time. Sadly stripe passed away, he wasnt right from the start, the vet thinks he had problems inside. We tried our hardest to keep him alive but it just wasnt ment to be. So we made the hard decision to have him put to sleep, as we didnt want to see him in pain, he was very week, so sad. So my mum has decided to keep both these little cuties. I think they are going to be a handful(infact i know they are going to be a handful as they already are).

Now onto a creation i made for my mums birthday this week. I'm very proud of this as it is my first explosion box.

 I cant find the name of this paper but it is by magnolia.

 I have used magnolia-tilda blowing bubbles. I have coloured her with distress inks. The DP is again by Magnolia.

 I added some butterflies that i punched out from the Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly.  

 I made the little envelope from a dovecraft template. It has a little note in it.

Flowers are from wild orchid crafts. I have used white and pink roses. Sorry about the pictures, they are a bit dark.
