How much is that doggie in the window?

Ah well the oldies are the goodies, I remember that song well.  I used to sing it to my son when he was little and he used to come in at the barking bits with his little woof woof.  Memories. 

I see I have another follower, Elizabeth, you are most welcome and thank you for joining my happy band of followers.

OK onward and upward.  I was asked to do a card for one of my mum's friends at her little club. it was for her grandson.  Well I don't normally entertain men's cards, just never seem to like doing them, but she was most insistent. This is what I come up with and she liked it.

8 x 8 black card from Anna Marie's Designs
Some blue checked paper I had laying around
The dog was cut on my Cricut Mini from a "Just because Card" Cartridge ( I love the shadow effect)
Sentiment was from a Kanban set I had
There it is simple but I just love it, simple minds easily pleased.  I have had a few days die cutting poinsettias for some cards I have to make and boy is it taking an age but will be well worth it in the long run.  I also have some orders for the wreath hanging I did a few weeks ago but they want them in traditional red and green not in the gold and cream I used.  More poinsettias.  Oh well you can't please everyone can you?
I am getting acclimatised to the colder weather now and the dogs are loving it and are back to walking at lunch times.  They seem to give it a miss when the weather was warmer but now it is cooler they are keen to get out for a walk.  We all need the exercise as we love our food.
Ok you lovely people that's it for tonight.  Look forward to hearing from you and I am off to comment on your wonderful posts, had a quick look earlier, and now I have some time to comment.
Only leaves me to say take care out there.

  1. Brilliant card Wilma, love the dog. Your card design is great.
    I am way behind with my posts, I have been busy getting bits and pieces cut out for the Card Class, plus the boys have been here for a few hours. Robert has been "crafting", spending time with him is more important.
    Happy crafting
