 This is little "Winnie Middleton" she is a 13 week old chihuahua , that has become our new fur baby . It's been 2 and a half years since our poodle Hudson died . Winnie is very sweet natured , loves everyone but has mad half hours of racing and fighting us and her toys .

some Hunkdory makes , sentiments from The Paper Boutique and Tim Holtz.

Another lockdown , hope your all safe and well in craft world, it is our way of escaping the badness around , that and our pets and loved ones .

MFT "puddle jumper"

Not much rain this week , for a change , but my card is inspired by the wet weather we know so well. The boy with brollie is from a MFT stamp and die set called "puddle jumper " as is the lovely sentiment, the images are coloured with promarkers  . The paddling chicks are from another MFT set called "rain or shine". I used craft card, and did the rainy Polaroid scene on my pc  using Lliella rain scrapbooking digi kit. I added glossy accents on the boys wellies , the puddle and rain drops. Inside the card I stamped "sending showers of love".

 A manly Autumn card , not a foxy lady but a foxy gent. The stamped fox looks very proud and quiet scary looking . We get lots of foxes in the garden and they leave their mess to prove it , but I still think they are a beautiful animal .

The fox stamp and the foliage stamp are both from the new issue 87 from creative stamping mag. The fox I stamped and coloured with promarkers . The foliage stamp I stamped in versamark , added white embossing , heat set and then blended Tim H inks over the top , wiped it clean then spritzed with water , I have yellowy messy stained fingers . I added some die cut leaves and coloured them with promarkers .I die cut circles and scallops and added a zig zag square border and stitch alphabet dies (spelling out foxy ) from MFT.
