Our Christmas Present from Santa

This has been a long hard year for us with Mum being so ill and passing away at the age of 90.  In the midst of that sorrow we lost our little dog (11years old) from a sudden heart attack.  Perfectly healthy one moment, gone the next. It has been a long winter here and what seems a very very long year.

My husband has been desperate to find another dog, and at the weekend we found this tiny little puppy, who, withing 48 hours has taken control of the household. It doesn't take away the sorrow we will feel without Mum at Christmas this year, nor does she replace our little Sandy.  But she is the distraction we need, and she is dearly loved by all. 

The kit I have used is from Scrap Kitchen Designs, called "Christmas Past"
