A week? Seriously is that how long it’s been since I last posted?! I always say I’m crazy busy and I really am, but I’ve been reeeeeeeeeeally crazy busy this last week or so! My youngest had a birthday on the weekend and we took him and a bunch of his friends tubing – drag a big rubber tube up a dry ski slope, jump inside and slide down squealing and repeat!
We also have visitors for a week including my sister’s beautiful black labrador. A year old and such a lovely nature but he’s a rescue dog and was previously locked in a back garden for a year. How can people do that? I mean seriously, how can they? As a result he has little to no training and everything is a new experience to him. Training a cute 3 month old wee puppy is a lot easier than training a 30kg almost fully grown male dog! Boy is he strong and takes full time work at the moment to try and teach him the manners and behaviours that a lad his age should have. Great fun though, you should’ve seen him when he saw sheep for the first time! Oh and the smell of rabbits that was a new one too – so excited. He stuck his head in to the mole hill …… I will try and get a photo to share – he is so glossy and black you can see the light reflecting off his coat and he is a handsome fellow. Might be tricky to get him to sit still but I’ll try!
What struck me and had me hook, line and sinker was the wonderful colour blocking. I grabbed my cardstock and was taken with the idea of using similar colours to Laura to create a colour blocked die cut. I really liked my block in it’s simplicity. I tried to incorporate it in to a card but in the end I really liked it as it was so I simply punched a hole and used it as a tag on a hessian gift bag.
I thought the natural textures of the bag went really well with the colours. So there you are, no card and not a stamp in sight!!
