Time To Celebrate Card and My little Pug Dog
It's most definitely April showers here,one minute bright sun and the next heavy showers,my washing is on the line...what a mistake...
It is good for the garden and the crops so maybe we should celebrate the rain!
Another maggie card, none for ages then what happens, I get back into them. I know some people don't like them because they only have eyes,I feel this way myself sometimes,but when I draw faces on they look rubbish ,so no nose and no mouth on mine. They are fun to colour though .
I've been naughty and been buying again,at Crabapple crafts and hobby craft, I'll be out of a job soon and should be saving money but you know how it is,us crafters want everything crafty...the latest stamps,dies,paper ,pens ...the list goes on and on.
I wanted the Tim Holtz old clock face die and bought it yesterday,glad I did ,most useful.
The stamp used is Magnolia Loving couple coloured with markers . The pretty rose paper is blueberry hill,papermania. The sentiment is lili of the valley and the rose and lace flower old stash. The butterfly is a sizzix die,cut twice with added pearls.
The little pug dog, is a comission,my son's girlfriends sister,she wanted a pug dog in vintage rose fabric. I drew a simple pug shape onto card,Drew round onto the wrong side fabric,sewed together on my sewing machine ,leaving a gap to turn ,stuffed him and sewed ,by hand,closed. I cut eyes ,nose and ears from green felt and added a set of googly eyes and a bow. I emailed the finish pug,which she loved but later requested a pink bow rather than green! I do think it's cute and a bit quirky like most of my soft toys are,hardest part is giving them up....what a softy hey!
I bought some wood blanks for altering,a house and house hangers, I'll show them you when I'm finished decorating them.
