Black and Cream with a touch of Red

My delivery of Labels Twenty and stamps arrived yesterday (thank you Oyster Stamps for processing my order so quickly) and my fingers were itching to play. Luckily someone wanted a black and cream card not too fussy and to be posted so no high decoupage, so on went the thinking cap. The other die I used, Persian Accents, is another one I just adore, and Memory Box Dancing Tulips, was a new one I bought at the SECC and had not used.  Dancing Tulips is so delicate you have to be really careful placing it on your card.

Where oh where has all this rain come from. Soaked twice today walking the dogs, although as it was raining it was a case of dragging them round till they did their business, and quickly back home.  They hate the rain but love the snow.  They come in after being out in the snow covered in little snowballs and I have to use the hairdryer to melt them, the snowballs not the dogs. What they like the most is a cold frosty morning, get off the lead and let loose to run on the grass.

This is photograph of them sitting on their towels waiting to get dried after being out.  Mei Li is the black one and Shaolin is the beige one.  They are very good, as soon as we come in from a walk they go directly to their towels to get rubbed down.

  9. Gorgeous Wilma. I love black and white with a touch of red. Loving your new labels. I have the tulips too and I'm embarrassed to say I've hardly used them yet.

    Can't believe how good your dogs are. My 2 Labs always breenge about when I'm trying to dry them. One is getting dried and going round in circles while the other one tries to lick me. Yuk!!! In spite of how wet it was today they've been for 2 long walks....with Dad. Unfortunately tomorrow it's my turn.

  12. Evening Wilma. I do like your card the tulip die is lovely, glad you are haveing fun with you new dies. Like Kat I love to know how you get your dogs to wait on their towels. Our Harris ( he's a lab ) goes round and round etc. and of course takes ages to dry. Hope tomorrow isn't so wet for you dog walking. That's husband job for the morning. Hazel
