Cute Puppy Birthday Card

Anita's Pup
Another card using a Quickutz download cut on my Silhouette.
When I download a template I tend to resize it for the project I want it for and then ungroup it to make a new sheet for bodies and heads (to cut in brown) and another for ears, eyes and noses (to cut in dark brown) and save them in my Silhouette file.  A bit fiddly in the first instance, but I then have a file I can use again and again without redoing everything. I hope that makes sense??!!
The background paper is baby gift wrap and I have used plastic googly eyes to make the puppy even cuter.

What’s On My Desk Wednesday.

My desk hasn’t seen any action since Saturday night, when, fresh from NEC Hobbycrafts I had a little play with some of my new punches ….  so I thought that I would use today as an opportunity to show you the rest of my shopping ….

The white punches are Martha Stewart – I have wanted a couple of  “nice” butterfly punches for ages and I am very pleased with them as they cut like a dream.
The blue cut and emboss set was an impulse buy ….. I have had a little play, but I am afraid the embosser might gather dust in my punch drawer as I am not over impressed with the result.

This is just part of three huge wallets/boxes of A4 card and paper I bought with favour boxes, bags and bag toppers  in mind, the size is perfect for cutting on my Silhouette.

I love “My Minds Eye” papers and bought these double sided 12 x 12 sheets for a special baby mini book I plan to make over the Easter break.

These wooden baby girl embellishments were good value for £1, at the moment I don’t have a project in mind for them but they were to cute to pass by.
Posh pins ribbons
And finally some posh pins and ribbons.  I have seen a lot of these pins used on cards on other blogs and though I would have a go.
Well, that’s it until the November show ….. better start saving again!
