George's Puppy Tails:


It's been a while since I shared a Puppy tail post so I thought I'd share a winter post.
In the UK this past week we've had quite a bit of snow, and where we live its the deepest its been in about eight years. 
It was the first time George had ever seen snow so deep and he couldn't wait to get out and play.
As well as running through it and playing, he also likes to try and eat it, every time he goes out.
Because he is still quite young, his walks have either been short or none due to the deep snow. But he has been playing indoors which is important to keep him mentally stimulated.
Some of the fun games he's been playing are hide and seek, find the biscuit and of course learning new tricks or just keeping up with obedience.
What have your dogs thought of the snow?

Simply Magnolia: Easter

Well it is time to share my exciting news. I am now a DT member at Simply magnolia!
I am so excited! I've dreamed of being on a magnolia DT ever since I bought my first stamps so to finally be on one is such an exciting achievement for me.

Our challenge this month is Easter. A few years ago I made Easter cards to send for friends and family, but now people don't seem to bother so much, so using my Easter stamps is quite rare. Luckily I have loads of magnolia Easter images, so I created this Easter scene stepper card.

This is a 6x6 card, tent fold stepper. I managed to fit all six tilda's on along with the sunrise fields background stamp.
All images were coloured with Promarkers. If you look closely, you will see some really old Easter Tilda's.


The papers are from a Tilda range of papers, so are in 12x12.
I also used the doohickey fence die and a wild rose studio birdy branch die for along the top of the card.
I added a doily and flowers to finish.

I really look forward to seeing your Easter designs.
