Tag Game

Hi all,
Sally has tagged me,
The instructions are to navigate to where you keep your pictures, choose the 6th folder then choose the 6th picture and tell about it. Well this was mine. This photo was the photo i ended up at it was taken when we first got our little yorkie (jimmy) he was 3 yrs old on 12th jan this year and as you can see my DS adores him.
He is such a cutie but he is under the impression he is a rottweiler
believe me he makes an excellent guard dog and true to form he is very very yappy lol
I hope i dont get into bother from my DS putting his pic up on here as when he drew my candy winner he refused to get his face in the photo's lol bless him he's a little camera shy :)
As i told Sally what the heck i'll go for it my shoulders are broad enough (Literally) lol.
1. Navigate to where you keep your pictures, select the 6th folder, and the 6th picture in that folder.
2. Post the picture on your blog with an explanation about the picture.
3. Tag 6 others to do the same, and let them know they have been tagged!
so here's the lucky six.

There thats done maybe i can make a card before i hit the sack lol
Hope you six lovely bloggers dont mind, its all in fun but i know a lot of awards n stuff has been going around and it cuts into your crafting time lol
so if you really have'nt got the time to spare then i wont be offended if you dont join in the game
hope you've all had a great evening catcha later

Hi everyone,
We have some sunshine today wow aint it nice, still cold though but lovely and bright.
Last night i made this for my daughter, its for her to put on the wall in her office
she wanted one to put her photo's in so that she did'nt have to have them in frames on her overcrowded desk.
I was hoping to have made it for her birthday but it was 20th dec and what with christmas and having had the dreaded flu bug before christmas i just did not have the time.
She does not know i have made her this thought i would surprise her this evening
hope she likes it and its fits the bill of what she wanted
(she has been on about trying to find one somewhere)
Anyway its my first attempt at one of these hope i did ok.
I am entering this into a
Stamp Something Challenge
