Labrador parade and C&C reminder


Back left, Buffy....Peter Pan of the canine world.......at ten she still thinks she's one. Next to her Abbey, now eleven and in the front placid Lily on the left and sister Daisy who is still hyper as ever.
I've been promising this for so long and eventually I got a picture of the puppies together with the senior girls.....no boys allowed in this one.

There's a bit of a red theme going on here it seems, although not planned that way. The card above is another of my samples for Stamp Addicts new programme on Create and Craft this Thursday, 24th March at 11am. My card is watercoloured with Aquamarkers, cut with Grand Nestie labels one and the poppy made with TH tattered floral die.

And this one using one of the gorgeous La Blanche stamps I told you about last week here where you can see a close of of one of these rather different stamp which are available from Sir Stampalot. Also coloured with Aquamarkers and the background stamp is Hero Arts S5264.

Happy crafting everyone.

Love the cards, but had a hard time getting past the dogs! LOL! I have 1 yellow lab. His pic is on my side bar, I couldn't see 4 in this small house, though I do have 10 acres of land.

Kat said...

Stunning cards Brenda, my favourite is the first one with the poppies. I love poppies.

And these doggies are just adorable. Our first Lab was a yellow dog who lived till he was 13 and still ran like an idiot when he was 11. Next was our lovely chocolate girl who died 4 months ago at only 10 1/2. The 2 black boys are only 6 months and still naughty. Seems to be something different every day. Today they got to the mail first and completely destroyed 2 new Penny Black stamps. A third one survived with just a few teethmarks on the wood and a clear set survived too unmarked. Not a happy bunny as you can imagine lol!!

Take care,

Kat xx
