Furry friends

A beautiful sunny day today, and I spent all afternoon ..... hemming my kitchen curtains :(  Its a job that's been bugging me for, oooh, maybe 5 years and today was their big day!  Hurrah for me ;)

I managed to squeeze in a couple of quickie cards too.  My first one uses an oldie High Hopes bunny and some of my rediscovered flower soft.  I don't think I've ever used the heather coloured stuff before.
Bunny coloured with watercolour pencils and Spectrum Noir sparkle added to the tulips.  I was a bit stumped by the sketch as I couldn't find a thank you sentiment to fit, so I used just a peel off and stuck it over all 3 layers. Taylored Expressions DP.



    I always seem to lack some masculine birthday cards in my stash, so I've used one of my Katzelkraft dogs for this one.  I heat embossed my dog and the sentiment.  Background watercoloured.

    2. Wow, you accomplished a lot in a single day! It always feels good to get some of those pesky jobs done. My mending pile keeps getting higher and higher! You made two super cards today. I especially like the second one with the dog. He looks like a slap-happy kind of dog. )
