Don't usually show a card on 'results week' but as I used snippets of green card, here's what I made:
- 5.5" x 4.25" white card blank, side opening
- piece of white card stock onto which I stamped the chicken and egg from Stampin' Up's 'Hey, Chick' set plus the 'Easter Wishes' sentiment by Pink Gem designs
- coloured the chicken and egg using Pro markers and also Whispers markers for the very fine bits such as the chick's legs. I do have some Letraset Extra Fine Nibs for Pro markers but was in a hurry!
- a snippet of SU 'Certainly Celery' card stock - trimmed to just slightly bigger than the stitched rectangle
- then glued the layers onto a card front - all done!
I really like the quirkiness of this SU set of stamps - always makes me smile.
Let's get straight on with the fortnight's picks:
No new Playmates this time, although we had a total of 58 entries - yay!
Now it's prize draw time, and our winner of the MFT 'Stitched Diagonal Cover Up' die and the Impression Obsession 'Thanks' die is:
Remember folks, there's still almost another week to run on Challenge #350 - you can find it HERE. The prize is a Clearly Besotted 'Panda Planner' set of stamps, plus a £15 gift voucher (which was kindly donated by Clearly Besotted).
Dudley's hair trim session on Wednesday turned out to be a bit of a saga. The place is a bit off the beaten track on the outskirts on Winchester - I drove whilst Len had Dudley on his lap - doing the usual yodeling act (Dudley, not Len!). And the stupid Sat. Nav decided to play silly games and I/we got hopelessly lost - going round in circles. I knew that, once I spotted the main street of Winchester with the iconic statue of King Alfred, that we were in trouble! Who knew there were so many steep hills and narrow lanes around the City itself. Eventually we did find the place and left Dudley with his Auntie Steph ..... whilst we recovered in a nearby Costa Coffee. As I suspected, he needed a fair bit of work on those matts and the upshot is that we're taking him back for 'Round Two' on Monday morning! So far it's possible that he won't have a puppy cut just yet - but if it means double sessions then it's not fair on Dudley really so we'll see what happens. We're only being charged for one session - but I still have to do that awful 'hunt the groomer' thing all over again!
I haven't managed to take a photo of him since Thursday afternoon's outing, in fact he looks very much the same (as Steph spent the time working on the matts). But, I did spot that some of you wanted to see his starfish impression so managed to do a quick shot of him before the grooming trip:
He weighed 6.2 kg the other day, so is certainly stabilised at what might well be his fully grown weight.
Other Dudley news is that he met a sweet little 'Princess' on his walk just before we headed off to Winchester. From Len's description, she might be a little Shih Tzu. She's lives quite locally, called Tilly and is just 14 weeks old. We'd been wondering about Dudley being so shy with other dogs (male and female) and hoping it was just a puppy thing - having your puppy hide behind your legs is obviously not what you want. But, no such problems with Tilly - it apparently was mutual love at first sight. With both dogs dancing around playing and then whining when it was time to carry on their separate ways! That's our boy!! x
As always, Parsnip and Dudley send their love, and so do I of course!
