Edwige's doggy card

Here's a card made with one of my new dog stamps that I got yesterday from eBay. I made it for my friend Edwige who owns the "poodle parlour" where Teddy goes for his coiffure. She is off on holiday to Italy next week, leaving her Sheltie with a host family here for 3 weeks so I thought I'd make her a card that says, "Enjoy yourselves, you two......" and inside it says "I'll be waiting here for you" and is signed with a large paw print (another stamp). The background is of course the colours of the Italian flag.

Tissue challenge

This week's challenge on Lotstodo is to use tissue paper in your entry so I decided to use some to stamp on a candle! I perched the candle on the windowsill of my craft room to take the picture but it is so hot today that I'm surprised it didn't melt!

Another shirt!

Here's the card I made for our French neighbour's birthday today. Hope he likes it!

That's the challenge this week on Lotstodo and this is my entry. I made this card for my friend Ingrid who is living in Belgium now. Thanks to my lovely forum friend Joy for the stamped image which enabled me to make this card. I hope I have done it justice. The base card was schmoozed through broken china and tattered rose distress inks which had been swiped on my craft map. The lady was painted in the same colours and some paper flowers were added from my punch. I stamped the greeting in blue (albeit none too straight!) and the card was done. I hope Ingrid likes it. I do!
