Sorry it's been so long!

Thursday, 10 April 2008
I'm sorry I've not been around much recently. I've been busy working on a job application (horrible things) for a promotion at work and also my mum is still not well so haven't felt overly-inspired on the card making front.

However, a friend in Jon's team asked if I could make a card for his housemate's birthday on Monday so it got me back going again! All I knew about her was she likes dogs and pinks her favourite colour! Dogs and pink......hmmmm!

I decided that I would make a selection of cards for him to choose from so then he wouldn't feel obliged to take the one that I made. Anyway, this is what I came up with.




I used a combination of Little Claire's, Whipper Snappers and Penny Black stamps (yes, I know the hedgehog isn't a dog!), cuttlebug folders and Craftwork Card sentiments.

Thank you to everyone who helped with my sticky stamp problem. I got myself a versafine ink pad and, as you can see, was able to get my little scottie's to stamp!!

I took the cards into work today and he loved them. He ended up taking both the scottie cards as he remembered another friends birthday was coming up. He has also mentioned the possibility of getting me to make his mum's birthday card in June, so I might have a regular customer here!

    Sorry for the "Test" comment :) But I tried to leave a comment earlier and it didn't work.
    I love all of your creations, but the first one is my favourite. It's so funny to see the little dog in action! Great to have you back!
