Cute Pup

Hi everyone,
Another very cold day and rain, rain, rain!!!
It's been bucketing down since about 2.30 p.m. starting when I was at Jane's house for craft. Only 3 of us today and Jane had to go to for a blood test, so we packed up early. I hope she didn't get too wet as she had to go into town and would have been hard to find a park close to where she had to go.
We had our usual meal out tonight but instead of just 4 of us, there were 16. Our youngest daughter's boyfriend's birthday yesterday and we all got together to help him celebrate. I gave my apology for choir practice which was just as well because they only had one girl taking the orders and there were several big groups in ordering at the same time. We arrived for a 6 p.m. booking and had to wait a while for everyone to get there and choose what they wanted before getting in line.  We stood in line for at least 15 mins before getting served and finally started getting our meals about 30 mins or more later. So, we didn't start to eat until after 7 p.m.  It was a good night, even though it took longer than usual to get our orders.
I've spent the rest of the night doing some commenting and finishing off this card. I did make a card for the birthday boy but have taken pics with the camera and haven't uploaded yet, so I will share that another day.

Here's my card: I haven't decorated the inside yet.

Sand coloured card from stash
White textured card
Image was a freebie stitch pattern I found on the net years ago
Sentiment is from a Kaisercraft set of clear stamps
I used SU Pacific Point ink but because it is textured cardstock, it didn't stamp 100% so I went over it with a blue Jelly Roll Pen - gives it a sparkly look
The pup was coloured with watercolour pencils and I used a lovely textured thread to embroider him with.
Also used blue silky thread and  gold and red metallic thread to stitch with.

Thanks for stopping by and for those who commented while they were here. Thankyou, I enjoyed reading your comments.
Take Care,


  1. Terrific stitching Sandy and such a fun image. The meal out sounded like a great night even if slow.

  2. Such a doggie cutie, Sandy. Beautiful colours and the simple layout looks very effective.
