Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Spotty Dog.

I've just ordered another load of stamps from Elzybells, mainly sentiments as they stamp out really clearly if i remember to use versafine ink on rymans coated card as memento can slide a bit.In the meantime i've had another play with the little dog. I'm going to have to whisper this so as not to upset my Penny Black dogs but i really like this little chap.
I got the paper in Hobbycrafts sale, it's by Crafts House, called Allsorts and it's quit shimmery although it doesn't show on the photo. Image is coloured half heartedly with promarkers. If peeps only want to pay £1.50 they get slap dash, lol, they don't know any different.
A close up of the little dog. And what do i use to thread the fibres through the buttonholes? Nothing! Life's too short, i just tie a knot and glue it on top! The leaf is done with an X Cut botanicals emboss punch.
 Enjoy your sunday, love Di.xxx


  1. Hi Diane
    Lovely card, he is such a sweet little doggy, fab paper, love the simple layout too.
    Enjoy the rest of Sunday.

  2. Hi Di, well worth £1.50 for this super card. I don't understand why people are quite happy to pay at least £2 for a basic mass produced shop bought card. I love the little doggy ... he's so cute. Have a great Sunday ... the sun is shining here at the moment ... it won't last though 'cos we are considering having a BBQ.
