Feeling Ruff?



So I found another challenge over on cmutd - address in my favourites list. This time it is to make a card in three colours or less - hmmm, surprisingly difficult. This sad little pup was stamped in adirondack ginger and clear embossed, then coloured with prismacolour and gamsol. The scallops were cut with mini monograms, and the bone is an icon from Mickey and friends. I so love this little dog.

We are off to Yorkshire tomorrow for a few days, we lived there for a while many years ago, and have always kept in touch with our friends. I love it there, the village is so peaceful, - a million miles away from the busy urban sprawl of the town we live in now. We will probably go to York one day, which must be one of my favourite English cities, centuries old narrow streets and a Minster (cathedral) which must be one of the finest in the world. Anyone know of any great craft shops in that part of the world? I'll check on my friends computer in case any of you come up with something that's too good to miss. Thanks.
