Winston’s Puppy Bag

I added some embellishments to Winston’s puppy bag today.  I’ll probably add more at some point, but this is it so .

Winston and His New Puppy Bag

We got a new puppy on Sunday, 16 Jan 11.  His name is Winston Howard Mullis.  He’s a Border Collie/Cattle Dog mix and will be 8-weeks old tomorrow.  He and his 4 brothers and 1 sister were born on Thanksgiving Day at a pound in Denver and slotted to be put down the next day.  Fortunately, Highland Springs Rescue and Rehab retrieved them and have already placed all but 2 brothers, including their mother.  I’m taking Winston to see his ‘grandma’ this weekend, and it occurred to me that I needed something in which to carry all his little puppy supplies.  So, I’ve started this little tote bag.  I’ll definitely be adding more to it, but this is a start:


This is Winston:

A Birthday Photo Card and Another Lighting Test

I made this card for my friend, Terry.  He grew up on a farm in Kansas, so this just reminded me of him.  It’s a photo I took of an old tractor at my dad’s house.  I put it in a black photo card.  I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with Stazon black ink and misted it with Graphite Glimmer Mist and cut it out.  I attached it to white cardstock that had been blended with Tea Dye Distress ink and edged with Black Soot Distress ink then cut to match the sentiment.


I spent some time doing a lighting test today with some of my lighting gear.  Bo helped me understand the lighting some last night, but I promised not to post any of his picture.  On thing I did learn was that I should comb my hair before doing this and iron the backdrop.  Smile

My CFF, Jill, gave me some craft homework.  I had to use at least 3 of the paper butterflies she provided in an envelope.  Here is what I created.
