Anything goes!! & a fed up poodle!


Rhedd and Rosie have a challenge that we all love - Anything goes

This is my offering, not the best I've ever done, but this time round I had a crafty block, just too many choices! These are all Indigo Blu stamps, my photographic skills are not brilliant, and some of the highlighting on the flowers and wording does not show up all that well - but it is there :)

My friend makes costumes for the local Am Dram group and let me loose on their lace stash, so I had to use a bit of it - mind you some of it is just too scrummy to use :)

As always looking forward to seeing your entries - come on show us what you've made this week!

Poor little Tilly Lou was spade this week, never have you seen such a forlorn looking poodle, she gave me a bit of a worry by taking her time waking up from the anaesthetic but she is well on the way to her old self.  We also got some lumps on her tummy removed as they were worrying her.  I do think the others were laughing at her a bit - here is Betty trying to work out what's going on.

Shades of Autumn for Rhedd and Rosie


Rhedd and Rosie have a new challenge running - Shades of Autumn I decided to use a stamp from a set I got ages ago - there is a lovely vintage feel to it, and as she is raking up the leaves I thought it very appropriate!  I did a bit of resist technique to create the acorn background and added a couple of die cut leaves.  The sentiment gave me a hard time - I'm not too happy with this one but it was the best I had :)

Apart from a few doggie dramas all is well here.  Poor old Mable has had yet more teeth removed (and so have I!!) I think she only has 2 left now!!  My little rescue poodle is so funny, I don't believe the vet when she said she had perfect vision in one eye, she walked slap bang into Christopher the other day, and he is hard to miss!

I hope you are all ok and I look forward to seeing your entries in the new challenge!
