It's been an entire year since my little guy
was born and being a crazy dog-mom,
I wanted to celebrate his special day.

Using a template I found online for a birthday
hat, I made a little hat for him.
I covered the cardstock with fabric after
I formed the hat and then made
a matching bandanna.  

The pom pom and trim were made from
some red wool that I had laying around.

He is such a good sport about sitting
still when I dress him up.

He and Abbey both got a new chew bone to celebrate his birthday.
(I think Abbey was secretly laughing at Bugsy that he
had to endure the embarrassment of the hat and she
got a new bone for doing nothing).

Happy Birthday Little Dude.
I hope we have many, many more to celebrate together.

Thanks for stopping by.

In keeping with the tradition of
Valentine's Day,
I have made a couple of cards 
a little project.

There are some terrific online tutorials
for Distress Ink colouring and
some equally amazing people who are
willing to share their knowledge, expertise 
and advice to those of us who 
are still trying our hands at this colouring medium.
My first cards are Miss Tilda coloured with
distress inks.

The next card is an easel card using
a digi image from here:

(I always feel like I'm
cheating when I use them).

It's for my hubby for our anniversary.

My final project is made from a tin mailbox
that I purchased from Target a few years ago while on
a cross border shopping trip.

The flowers were made from tulle flower shapes cut
from the Tim Holtz tattered florals die.

The little mailbox will be filled with chocolates for
Mom on Valentine's day.

Thanks for stopping by.
