Birds and Dogs

I’ve been busy this afternoon and have added one more card to my Christmas box:
The background sheet is from my black and white pad of flowers, but the trim round the robin actually lined up with some of the pattern. This was a pure fluke but quite effective.

In total I made eight cards today, six birds and 2 dogs.
These are definitely Hello cards,
though the one with the bright blue foil background might end up with a Merry Christmas on it.
This one is made from odd and ends and turned out rather well.
The background is the two slices of backing paper cut off from the doggie cards which I joined together with a silver bar. The peacock is in bronze ‘foil’, and one of a sheet of several I picked up as a discontinued line for 60p.
I made this one a little while ago from some of the others on it.
Not bad.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
