Octogenarian !!!!

Hi everyone....sorry its been a while as August has been so busy with 30th birthdays, looking after our grand-puppy....yes our grand-puppy !!!! He is a Boxer called  Chuck  and  we absolutely adore him xx 
As our cats are aged 17 & 18 years my DH and I were going between houses, staying overnight, for just over a week as it would not have been fair to have Chuck at ours. He is not used to cats and our two would have been quite anxious as he is a big bundle of fun who likes to play with everyone xx.

In fact Chuck was like my FitBit for a week, with lots of walks and play. 

Anyway, below I have an 8" by 8" card for an 80 year old gentleman to share, which depicts Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous rubber stamps and lots of stencilling etc. I also used a Gabrielle Pollaco stencil with PA Grunge Paste. 
Heading off to the Edinburgh Fringe for a couple of days, people watching and also a concert in which the Treacherous orchestra are playing...............really looking forward to it !!

Sending you all my best wishes and thank you so much for visiting and leaving a comment. I shall certainly return the compliment. 

Take care and Huge Hugs xxxxx

  9. Love the card! Gorgeous colors and those stamps ... awesome. Thanks for sharing Chuck, the furry fitbit, with us. He's adorable. I don't know if the cats know how lucky they are that you cared enough to remove them for a week. I can only image what they would be like now if they had stayed :).

  12. Annie, thank you for stopping by to visit me the other day! I am just now after several months of a big move, getting back to blogging. Still have 75% of my craftness packed. Came across the paper square plates you gave me and remembered we were both going to do something with them, so shall we? Love the card you created for the 80 year-old gentleman and I am sure he truly appreciated it. It is awesome! Oh and Chuck is adogable! Hope you are having a great time! Hugs!
