How cute is this little chap?! He's from Stampin' Up's Storybook Friends, a stamp set full of sweet animals. He's been stamped onto watercolour paper using black stazon ink and then coloured in Soft Suede ink. I scored a line under him and washed in a sky above it and grass below before stamping the sentiment from Friendly Phrases. The little scene was cut out with a circle punch and I added a bit of linen thread for a bit of manly interest!
I've fallen in love with this little pup and I think he deserves a bit of a close up! I was imagining him careering around and so naturally I gave him a ball to play with! Let's hope he has a happy day - we're having sausages for tea so you never know, someone might smuggle a spare sausage under the table for him!

It's a good thing Tuppence can't read otherwise she would be outraged at me wasting blog space on a mere dog and give me one of her Resentful Looks. And we wouldn't want that! Here's a photo of her giving one of her RLs to my husband, who had the temerity to sit in a chair she'd had her eye on. Do you see what I mean? Really, we are a sad disappointment to her!
Hope you have a lovely weekend - oh and if you're in the Buckingham area on the FOLLOWING Sunday, 28th April, why not take a trip to Tingewick village hall where there's going to be an exhibition of patchwork and quilting? There'll be some amazing work on display and for sale, and I'll be there selling some of my cards to raise funds for Arthritis Research UK and Medical Detection Dogs. It would be lovely to see you!
