Cairn Terrier

I made this for a friend of mine who has helped me alot with one of classes I teach on a Monday night, she also  has a cairn Terrier, so I thought it was very appropriate. I used the stamp from a Passion for Stamps, for colouring I used my old faithfulls PMs and Flexmarkers, the papers are Papermania Permisson as is the ribbon and sentiment finished of with gems.

Singing in the rain

I thought I would make this because it is now raining after all the snow we had on Monday/Tuesday, it is really cold outside, hope it gets a bit warmer for the week-end. This is a S.W.A.L.K. stamp, I used PMs and Flexmarkers for colouring, free papers for the backing and the punched flowers and leaves,finished off with ribbon and gems. I used Nellie Snellen punch for the flowers and a woodware punch for the leaves.
