Mag installment 2 ......

It has been some time since I added a card from my magazine pile. Well, it is one that I made a while ago but I forgot to add it. :0

This was very easy to put together.   Most of the items were freebies from the mag, all I had to do was cut it out and put it together, add the ribbon and the flower.  It is such a cutie IRL, lol I just love the little puppies expression. "What am I to do with this card, not eat it!", he seems to be saying. LOL.

The weather here has turned autumnal suddenly after all the sun and warmth last week, we are having heavy winds and lots of rain here today. Bummer! As usual we waited to the last minute to get the chimney cleaned as it is beginning to be fire weather.
Hubby went and got the brushes today and started cleaning. He was nearly finished when he came to me and said "I have a bit of a problem!" Oh! no, I thought, the room is covered in soot. But his "bit of a problem" is a little more serious, the actual brush is stuck up the chimney, it had come unattached from the poles and he could not dislodge it.
We now have to wait until next week when my BIL can come and climb on the roof and try poking down from the top.  We live in a two story house and the roof is very steep, I don't like heights and hubby cannot climb ladders due to a foot injury he sustained after a motor bike accident many years ago. I do hope BIL can come sooner and the wind has died down enough for him to climb the roof.
Its kind of funny when you think of it but hubby is in a bit of a strop over it. lol (Hope he does not read this before we have fire. hehe)

I have added a blog badge to my side bar. It is for a new Irish Crafting Online mag (might get new inspiration from there too :)) pop over and have a look.

Hope you like,
