2 weeks ago (when it was very hot) we went out to the woods with him for the first time. He was such a good boy. He walks off the lead and comes to command all the time.
I think he looks like a lion here from behind.
It was lovely to be in the cool of the woods on such a hot day. Bear loved sniffing at everything but never wanted to wander far and loved lots of pats...
and paw shakes!! He has grown so much and his ears stick up now most of the time. His paws are huge and there is still plenty more growing to do.
Sometimes his ears meet in the middle. We enjoyed a lovely long walk but at one point Bear asked for a carry so Matt obliged up the hill
and then Charlotte took over.
Bear really enjoyed his first long walk and as you can imagine when he got home he slept like a baby.
The other part of my "sunny" post is to announce the winners of my recent Jubilee giveaway. I had 16 ladies who asked to be put in the hat
Here are the lucky winners,
1st out of the hat was Mia , 2nd was Teje and 3rd was Debi Well done ladies!
I wish I had a prize for everyone but thank you to everyone who entered and I found the Market Research very useful indeed. It appears that on the whole cupcakes and gardening seem to be the favourite theme of my cards.
And to give you something cheerful and sunny to end my post here is my Challenge card for today.
Here is the image in close up. I used some lovely ladybird backing paper from my Jack 'n Jill papers and used a wheelbarrow and fence die cut to really give it an outside feel. I finished it off with some hand punched Martha Stewart butterflies and a couple of red pearls. The sentiment is a new one from Lili of the Valley.
This card is for sale here in my Etsy Shop
