Welcome Nick!


Happy Monday my friends.  Popping in with a post to introduce you to the newest member of our family, Nick (for St. Nicholas).  This sweet little guy arrived as a surprise to our family on Christmas Eve.  The boys are in love (especially Ryan and Marcel). He's a sweet Australian shepherd. Smart boy...but he's confined to our kitchen and family room for now until he's trained.  


Marcel loves him. This seems to be their multiple times per day ritual where Nick gives Marcel some serious puppy kisses.  


So this month's Frantic Stamper release which is focused on the animals we love was perfect to share today!  This one will likely go to Ryan at college since he is bummed knowing that when he next comes home Nick will likely be a lot bigger. This card is using three new dies from this month's release:  Dog Paw Print Set; Bobble Head Sweet Pea; Elementals #17.  All kinds of adorableness in this month's release for our furry friends!

I don't know which is cuter, Lynn. Nick or that puppy on your card. At least the one on the card is already trained. ;)

Awwww...!! That Nick is definitely a cutie pie! And you can just see 'smart' all over that adorable face of his. Congrats on this darling baby!! And your card is so sweet! Love that image, and your color palette. I know Ryan will treasure this card; it'll remind him of Nick every time he sees it. Great sentiment with a wonderful font too. Happy New Year!! Bev

Awww! What a cutie! How exciting for your boys! And your card is a perfect celebration of such.

Oh Nick is adorable Lynn and Marcel is such a great age for a puppy! Judging from the size of his paws I think that Ryan is right, he will definitely be bigger next time he see's him!
