Recently Millie came to my house and painted a canvas for her rabbits Woffles and Spike, I'd mixed rather a lot of paint so decided to use it up on 2 small canvases. I keep in touch with Billy's new owners on a regular basis and she lent me a great book Rescue Me: My Life With The Battersea Dogs by Melissa Wareham. To say thank you I've decorated the canvases with photo's of Billy and his new sister Maddie the Staffie!

I hope she likes them!

Going Round in Circles........

 Over on Anything Goes this week's theme is " Going Round in Circles!"

I've made a card for my Step Dad Norman, he is 60 next month! I used a tri fold card with a scalloped front but I have cut it in half and stuck it back together! It is decorated in Dovecraft Masculine themed paper. The Happy Birthday greeting is from a Crafts-Too embossing folder. I lightly inked the punched letters with Versa Magic Cloud White to give the pearlised blue card a Denim look!. To finish I added some Cricut stars and a few gems.

I feel as thought I am going round in circles! Nothing has gone right for me this month and to top it all off I got the dreaded sickness bug at the weekend! Why me! That meant I missed my sewing class on Saturday, I didnt move far from the sofa. So Sunday I made up for it and caught up on a bit of scrapbooking, again with a circle theme. I had great fun with a piece of string and a pencil to design this layout! Im really pleased with the finished page as it includes 12 photos! I kept the backround simple by just adding a title, ribbon, flowers and jewels

Lol! Look at me and my Aunty Tricia playing with the table confetti!

When time and life permits I love to join in with the Anything Goes Challenge. This week is Super Cute! Ive made 2 cute Cupcake Cards, they were super easy to make which works for me at the moment! I have used some scrummy 12x12 paper from The Sweet Stack range and my Hero Arts Cup Cake stamps all from the Craft Den

My crafting is keeping me sane at the moment. I mentioned on my last post we were having a new arrival! Well Jake arrived having lived outside for the last 3 years. He was in worse condition than we expected and within a few days he needed an emergency operation, unfortunatley it was too much for him and he passed away at home with his foster family.

RIP Jakey Boy, run free at the Rainbow Bridge with Big G xxx

A busy Saturday......

I was up early today so thought I would catch up on a project that as been on my table for the last 2 weeks. I have been struggling to finish a page so I thought I would finish another page that I started at The Craft Den a while ago....Well I love it when a plans comes together! I combined the two pages!

Calico fabric flowers, hand painted pleated canvas. Add ribbon and a lovely Martha Stewart punched butterfly, finished with a few gems...hey presto!

This afternoon, I have helped Millie, who is only 10years old to make a canvas picture of her Rabbits, Woffles and Spike. She often comes to walk the dogs and she notice my canvas pictures on the wall and wanted to make one.

What do you think? Im sure she will be visiting the Craft Den before we know it!

We also have a new foster dog, Jake, he arrived this afternoon. He has not stopped wagging his tail since he arrived so will post photos later x
