What a wonderful day today because I am here for my first of four Guest Designer spots for the fabulous challenge blog Just Us Girls! The very talented design team voted me Designer of the Month for December, so I will be joining them for the next four Saturday's. I do hope you will drop in us and say howdy-do!!
For the first challenge of the month, the theme is VALENTINE. I decided to do a vintage / shabby chic / mixed media card, AND I decided to video it, so you can see how I put it together.
Here is the video for you, if you care to take a peek. I took some advice from my lovely followers and have tried to slow in down during the reveal spots. I hope it works better now. I love the feedback ladies, keep it coming!
My card won an award in the following wonderful challenge:
So I took me another nightly stroll on the only night last week that had a tiny bit of snow. It didn't snow for long, but it snowed fairly hard, so I got some good 'action' shots. It was pretty, but it didn't last long and by the time I got back to the house, it was already melting. sad face.
I thought I would balance out the sad news about Brenda's tail, with some happy news about my friend Barry. When Barry first started coming to me he had a 'bare' strip down his back and several patches of missing fur all over his body and tail. It was much worse than in these pictures, I only took these a few weeks ago, but I think you get the idea.
And here's the image that makes me smile...Barry's fur has almost all grown back in now and he seems a little better in spirit as well. He has taken to hanging off the screen to eat his peanuts because he's safe from all the other squirrels there. Then when he's ready for another tidbit, he just swings on over and grabs one from my hand...freaking hilarious!
Nope, you're not seeing double. There are now TWO strips of carpet on the railings. We had a near miss the other day during a traffic jam, when poor Max almost took a swan dive off the balcony to try and get away from Hank the Hobo (he's a real bully). So I put up a second strip of carpet. This is now a two lane highway folks, there'll be no accidents on my watch!!! Everybody veer left please!!
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. I read and appreciate every single one! If you have any questions, please let me know.
