Pictures of my dogs

Sorry it took me so long to get these pictures up....
This is Wynter and Harlee. Guess which one is which??
That's right, Wynter is the white dog, and we had a very tough time naming her, originally thought about calling her snow or my husbands favorite, black pearl...(I hated that name!!)
Wynter is 4 years old and Harlee just turned 8. When we got Wynter, everyone told us that we would be getting rid of her, because Harlee was very territorial and had been our only dog for over 4 years already. I have to admit that the first month, we did have a bit of trouble, but that's only because Wynter was looking at Harlee as her Mom or play friend, and Harlee wasn't sure what Wynter was, so she was having none of that.
After the first month, they became inseparable!! They play together, sleep together sometimes, fight over the silliest things, like food and treats. Wynter is so much faster, so she can usually get her treat and Harlee's treat, and then Harlee gets so mad at her!!

Hope you like my pics of my babies. They each have their own personalities, so they are so much fun to be with, and make our lives so full! We are so lucky that we have the best dogs in the world!!

Challenge # 5 - A Spoon Full of Sugar

Hi All,

Well I guess that when you get to see this post, you will know that I am back from holidays and workin' again :-(
Wish the holidays could have gone on for a few more weeks!! My family and I (minus my hubby...) went to Clear Lake, Manitoba for some relaxin' last week. All together there were 8 of us, and 3 dogs in a tiny 3 bedroom cabin. I have to admit, last year I was kind of sad that my whole family seemed to wait till I moved away, and then all got puppies, but now after spending almost a week with the 3 puppies, I sure am glad that I have my dogs. Harlee and Wynter are the most amazing dogs in the whole world....I might just post a couple of pics of my dogs later this week!!

Now on to the card......

This card is for the fifth challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. The challenge this week it to incorporate checks into your card. I found this challenge a hard one, because I don't have alot of paper with checks around. However when checking out my stash, I found alot more then I thought I had!

Now it's your turn, go here for details, I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week.

Challenge #4 Celebrations

Good Morning!!
I am so happy to be able to make this post on Tuesday Morning. And would you like to know why I can make this post Tuesday Morning?? Cause I am on HOLIDAYS!! Yay!!

Challenge #3

Good Morning,
I am just on my way to work, but wanted to get my challenge #3 card for "A Spoon Full of Sugar" up on my blog. Make sure that you go and take a look at this challenge, because everyone did something amazing with it!! I just can't believe the great cards that this team comes out with every week.

You are going to have to wait for the details though, I am totally exausted from this long weekend. I got to go to a Co-op Expo. It was amazing. I saw some people that I haven't seen in a long time. Got to see the BARENAKED LADIES live in concert too!!! It rocked!!
And I got some amazing gifts and listened to some inspirational speakers! Absolutely loved every minute of it!!
Just got back last night...haven't even unpacked yet...I'm just too tired!!
I hope you like my card, and the details will be up soon!
Have a great day!

Edited to add: Sorry guys, I had the best intentions to get back to this post, but time got away from me again. I am not going to give you the details on this card, so if you have any questions, ask away. I do want to let you know where I got the fabulous designer paper from....It is from Prima Marketing Inc and is called "The Breathe Paper Collection" - I picked it up at Michael's in Regina!! I don't usually find much at Michaels anymore, so this was way exciting!!

Look what I got!

Hi Everyone,
This is going to be a short post with no new cards today. I am heading in the morning to Saskatoon for something called Expo. It is where managers from different Co-op's go to see new advances in supplies and other items that we use to do our business. It is so exciting that I can't wait to go. I won't be back till Monday night, so unfortunately you won't be hearing from me till Tuesday.

Before I go and finish my packing, I wanted to show you what I got in the mail a couple of days ago. I'm sure you remember when I had a blog candy drawing, and a fellow blogger named Jill won my blog candy. Well Jill and I were talking, and she wanted my address to send me a thank you card for the blog candy that I was sending. So, I got this package in the mail the other day, and now I think that I also won blog candy!! That crazy girl...she totally spoiled me!! Thanks so much Jill...for everything. I can't wait to use these images. I was just complaining to some of the other girls on the DT for a spoon full of sugar, because I didn't have any sugar nellie stamps. Now I have lots of images to choose from!!
Well, I am exausted!! I get to drive down with the boss, sure hope I don't fall asleep!!
Have a great weekend!
