Had to share this lovely pic of my beautiful Brandon which has been selected for the February slot (Loving Looks) on the 2013 Cavalier Forum calendar. We sent in several pics of both dogs but I'm sure Serge's day will come. I'm so proud of my handsome boy.

Eek! I almost passed on this one (Less is More - Theme Sewing) as sewing and me just don't get along. I can crochet and knit but ask me to sew and I break out in a sweat - ridiculous I know. So I had to have a go and I actually stitched these five faux buttons onto the stamped card and (drum roll here!) hand stitched the line across the card. I swear there are a couple of drops of blood on there from where I stabbed myself several times but what the heck, it matches in with the colour scheme. Thanks to Chrissie and Mandi for getting me outside my comfort zone yet again!

This is the first time I've joined in at The Ribbon Girls challenge but here goes. The colours to use this time were blue, aqua and brown - a lovely combination, and there were some very inspiring examples on the blog.

This challenge really got me going. I used the waste from a Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tag die cut and sponged some Fired Brick DI through it then stamped the group of girls in the centre. I did some dots round the shape with a black pen to give it an outline then stamped the sentiments using a stamp from one set and half an SU stamp so its 1 layer, 2 colours and 2.5 stamps but there are 3 girls on it! Hope that counts.

Another card made with those lovely little bunting flags that seem to be everywhere - I love them. The sun is actually peeking through today but the forecast is for more rain tomorrow (sigh...) so I guess its time to do what I can in the garden today but the ground is absolutely waterlogged so it will be on with the wellies!

Well, we've had a great deal of rain lately but no more floods thank goodness! It looks like July in the UK is going the same way as June - I think we had our summer in that very hot week back in March. Anyway, at least it means there's more time for crafting when I can't get into the garden so I've been busy catching up with some birthday and thank you cards. Here's a couple of them.
