Nine for the box

I had a card making session yesterday and although I didn’t actually get round to doing what I’d originally intended, I used two sets of trimmings purchased from the little craft shop on the way into Skegness.
The six dogs are definitely Hello cards as my stock has depleted considerably. They were only single toppers, so I just added a background and were quite straightforward.
The other three I made were decoupage and a little more fiddly, especially as I discovered that the layers were coated paper rather than card, so weren’t as thick as I was expecting.
Saying that though, they popped out of the sheet OK and look quite pretty.  I could use these as Hello cards too, or maybe Christmas cards as they are described as winter flowers.
I added a few extras, including some gem stones to enhance the flowers which can be seen in better detail below:
Not bad for an afternoon’s work.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
