Good Morning!
It's mid-May and I've been AWOL. Back now (just about!) with my mid-month card for the monthly challenge over at Crafty Hazel Nuts Christmas Challenge Extra where the challenge as always is ANYTHING GOES!
Bugaboo DigiStamps is our regular sponsor. I've used one of their many sentiment stamps as my main image. This one is called "Make-it-snappy--Merry-Christmas-ornaments", which I've coloured in with Copics, and used Glossy Accents to highlight the coloured baubles. The backing paper is from Michele R Designs and I've added a few flat-backed pearls. Such a simple card to make, I made a few!

Hope you come over and join in the fun!
And here is the reason I've not been around for a while
This was our beautiful beast, Yoshi. Very sadly, we had to make the very difficult decision to have him put to sleep. He has in the past bitten me and my son a couple of times, but we had found excuses for his behaviour. A few weeks ago he bit my son's girlfriend, totally out of the blue, no excuses. So the decision was made. Totally heartbreaking. I'm crying again as I type. But I know deep down it was the right thing to do. He was a massive part of our lives for four short years, and he is missed every single day. Love you Yoshi-Moo x

I so feel for you, Fiona, having to say goodbye to Yoshi.

Thanks so much for your lovely design mid-month inspiration for our CHNC challenge extra for May x

Very pretty card! I love the simplicity and the pop of color on the ornaments is perfect. Sorry to hear about your dog. Making that decision is so hard.
