Hi ya. Oh my, we had a great thunderstorm last night! and the rain has only just stopped (well about half an hour ago) and the sun is shining brightly. Don't you just love the English weather? I love a good thunderstorm. Looky here I made a card. I don 't feel as though I have made a card in simply ages. I hope you like it. I am going to enter this in to Linda's Monday Tim Holtz challenge click my side bar for more info or click on Linda's name.
Now as you know I love a close up ;0) so here you can see the sun streaming through so got great picks today. Thought I was going to have to use my flash but no! So, how did I make this card? I have used Tim's Die Cuts on my Cuttle bug to cut out some copper metal shapes, but for more info of how to get the yummy texture look on pg 43 of Tim's Compendium of Curiosities. The rest I think is self explanatory some vintage music sheets aged up even more, a pretty wooden dove covered in fabric, some lovely DP distressed with ink, and a beautiful vintage button to finish this card off in the centre of some delish aged ribbon. Hope you like it, oh and another follower has joined our merry band welcome, you have made me smile today.
And as I am a super proud mummy to Dude I thought I would take some photos and share them with you, he is now in the side bar too! (if you click his photo on the side bar you will be taken to a list of shelters in tameside where animals need our help, there will be a local animal shelter near you to)
He has been with us just over a week now and well and truly made him self at home. Now hubby was never a big cat lover. I mean he would never harm one but much preferred dogs, I am sure you know what I meen. Dude has warmed him up so much lol he is almost dog like in some ways, he sits at your feet when your cooking in the kitchen (like Dita used too) almost as if he's waiting for scraps, but never takes any thing. And when we sit in the front room to watch some TV, he walks in and then just flops down on his side just like a dog would. Hubby, also gets to play with him. Dude loves him too. But some times, just sometimes. I get the most loving cuddles as he jumps up, sits on my lap and he rubs his face against my cheek. Hunny is a little older (6yrs) and will curl up all adorable like and snooze bless her, but is coming round to playing more and seeking attention. I wonder why? lol so just a quick up date on the big fella for you. Love Dawn xx
