Don't see these many of these......

Good morning peeps on this chilly December day !!

I've been making some extra special cards for some extra special people !!

The first one was for Michelle who owns a super cute dashund. I don't get the time to play with my cricut, but bought a pets cartridge ages ago and so started to see what I could make with it !!

I wanted to see if I could make the images into 3D cards and with a bit of shaping ie cutting off extra legs, I managed it !! Thought she looked a  bit plain, so knitted a hat and scarf !!

Next a birthady card for my friend Carol and you've guessed it...Carol owns a super cute Jack Russel !!

Well I was on a roll now !!  Guess what Sue's little ball of fluff is......

Sue loves guinea pigs and I didn't know she had just got a new piggy called Osgar !!

Now what can I make next..........

Craft market

Evening peeps !!

Just got back after having a stall at Hearing Dogs for Deaf christmas craft market. There were 49 stalls this year of fab crafty things to buy and loads of super cute dogs to say hello too !!

This is an annual event for me and I know people are only looking for last mintue small gifts and extra doggy gifts seeing it is this close to christmas, so nothing was over £2.50.

It's lovey to see so many different crafters and what they love making, alot of jewellery makers this year and beautiful home decore things. Being on my own I don't get much of a chance to have a wonder round, hence no photo's of other stalls.

Almost sold out of everything and could have sold loads more pet crackers !!

Anyway made over £200 on just my little bits, bought my christmas cake and three christmas presents so one very happy bunny !!
