Paws for Thought

Hi everyone,

Today i thought I would share a few cards that I have made using the Paws for Thought Volume 2  CD Rom from Cupcakecrafting. I have made these for a craft fair that I am going to on Saturday. I planned to take some Christmas Cards, everyday cards and some other little gift nick nacks that I have made. The craft fair is in the local village hall and the village is full of 'doggy' people, so hoped these would go down well. Fingers crossed.

The cards are all ready in cello bags so I apologise if these are shiny on the photographs.

This first one is a cocker spaniel, I tried to keep it plainish, then it could be used for either a lady or a gentleman, although it does have some bling in the form of gems in the corner and on the ribbon.

The second is the Irish Water Spaniel. Again I tried to keep it for either sex. I do tend to make a lot of cards for women, so this was my way of balancing it out.

This is the Golden Retriever. This is a 6x6 card and although it has flowers on, hoped that this would appeal to either sex. Below is a matching notebook and pen. I inserted a piece of coordinating backing paper into the pen to try and make it look as if it matched the notebook. I'm not sure about these two items, I think I might use these myself. I think the backing on the notebook looks a bit dowdy. We'll see how I feel on the day.

Thank you for popping along. I hope to show you some more things that I have made for the craft fair tomorrow if you have time to pop over.

Happy crafting.
