No craft - but cute puppy

Unfortunately I have not been crafting the last couple of weeks.  Lots of new products needed to be added to the online store.  However a couple of photos to show off my pup, Cindy.  She is nearly 18 months old now and is growing quite big.

Gorgeous eyes

Can you see the little wound on her side?  She had a run in with the corner of the screen door, lucky it was only a surface wound and has since cleared up, but really showed up on her light coat

We are continuing to socialise with other dogs, and this next photo is on a walk with 3 other bigger dogs.  Two huskys and a boxer ... her little legs go twice as fast as the others, but she keeps up the pace really well.  

I hope to get a couple of more Christmas cards made this week.  With the days flying past so quickly, Christmas will be here before we know it.

Have a good week

Sympathy Cards

It is an unfortunate fact of life that we all require these cards at some time.
I bought a new embossing folder from Darice and wanted to try it out.  Very simple cards, but different results.

The final card uses a Quote stamp with a little ink shading.  I think it looks better in "real life", the photo does not depict the subtle shading 

Until next time

Kaisercraft - August Collections - Part 2

As promised yesterday, here are the cards we made using the Factory 42 pre-release papers from Kaisercraft.

Aren't they great, they could be used for any occasion. Cannot wait to get my hands on the new dies that are part of this collection.  

Until next time,

Kaisercraft - August Collections

I was lucky enough to be able to play with the pre-release Kaisercraft August Papers for their upcoming two new collections.

1. Christmas Jewels - beautiful mauve & silver tones for Christmas
2. Factory 42 - Cogs, Gears - very manly

My sister Sue, a friend Desley, and myself decided to make two cards from each of the collections. Each totally different, but all great as the papers are truly beautiful and make it very easy to create stunning cards.

I will show the results from the Christmas Jewels papers today and then tomorrow the Factory 42 ones.  Warning - lots of photos ...

What a great start to our Christmas cards

Until tomorrow
