Afternoon! I have been making a couple of cards - as you can see. I did my dog walking and a little house work first, so don't feel guilty. I was supposed to be lunching with a girlfriend but she called it off. I have my husband home this week, which is good. He's getting around to a few of those little jobs that creep up on you. I have used a Stampendous stamp. I started this card in class on Saturday but it does not resemble any of the cards is was meant to look like. I think I was supposed to use bleach somehow. Anyway, I found some green and white paper which I must have bought before the war - because it was right at the bottom of my box and I haven't been that far down since forever. The punch is a Martha Stewart one. The flower in the centre is a fabric one with a black jewel set on top. You can't see it well, but I've blinged it up with spearmint coloured glitter. I'm going to have to get a better camera I think.
Whilst I was busy, I spotted my friend in the garden.
I believe this is the male fox and I have not seen the vixen in ages. I think she may be no more. Her two cubs are regular visiors though - thankfully.
Cheeky chappie isn't he? They are unwelcome in my neighbour's gardens but I am pleased to give them some sort of refuge in mine.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
