Hello again, apologies for missing the last two weeks the time just ran away from me and it was Friday before I realised. No desk to show you this week as it's covered with projects I can't share just yet so I decided to show you our new four legged friend Sam.

Sam is from the Dogs Trust and we collected him last Tuesday. He is about a year old and is a Patterdale with a Rhodesian ridgeback, thankfully he has terrier legs so isn't quiet as big as you might think.

I will visit as many as I can this week and look forward to seeing your creative spaces. If you are wondering what this is all about please visit the lovely Julia's blog where all is explained.

Hello again another Wednesday has arrived which is a little scary!! 

Thank you all so much for the kind comments about our beautiful dog. We had to take the sad decision to send him to sleep on Friday. It was very hard but the right thing to do for him. Gone but never forgotten. 

On a different note I have a desk to sow you this week. If you are new to all this and wondering why I am sharing my desk please go to Julia's blog where all is explained, it's always interesting and fun to see what other crafters are up to. 

So on my desk I have a card which needs to be posted made with Kanban and HunkyDory goodies.
My Spectrum Noir pencils and stumps, there is some solution for the stumps but it's not visible on this picture. I am practising using a freebie from the fabulous Sheepski Designs.

The packet is a combo of an embossing folder and stamp set I picked up in The Range while out with my friend. Had a play with it last night and will be good for very quick easy cards that are cheap to post!!

The lady birds are part of a project I am working on but can't share just yet.

I had intended to post the creations below previously but things kind of happened so sharing them now.

I made this zig zag  card for a neighbours birthday card. I made the flowers with some scrap paper and my punches. I used some gems in the middle for some sparkle and to finish them off.

When the card is made with lots of flowers like this it doesn't fit in in an envelope so I used some left over flowers to decorate a plain paper gift bag. I used some new ribbon to finish it off. 
This is the same bag laid down so you can see it a little closer. 

I coloured this using my Spectrum Noir and Promarker pens, this is my second colouring for a while but I can't share the first one with you yet!! I used a heart punch for the edge, a little piece of white ribbon which I coloured, I love being able to do this and added some flowers at the bottom.

 My Mum asked for a bracelet that showed friendship so I made this using some Lapis Lazuli beads, spacer beads and blue satin cord.
