I went to see the puppies again on the weekend. They are now 6 weeks old and very active and playful - and totally adorable. I don't yet know which puppy will be mine. The breeder will do temperament testing at 7 weeks and have them evaluated for conformation at 8 weeks (one of her buyers wants one to show so that is why the conformation will be important). As far as I'm concerned, I just want a sweet companion!
Here are some photos:
They play and race around and then suddenly crash in a heap and fall asleep! I won't see them again until I go down in mid June to pick mine up and bring her home.
I've done one more card for the CAS Mix Up challenge before the challenge closes tonight.
I stamped the butterfly with Versamark and then "painted" it with three colours of embossing powder. I found the easiest way to add little bits of ep in different spots was by taking a plastic drinking straw and cutting off one end to a sharp point to make a little scoop that I could use to sort of control where the ep went. After heating it, I fussy cut it.
The background was made with pearlescent embossing paste through a random dot stencil. When dry, I die cut a circle out of it. And bordered it with a red die cut circle.
I attached the body of the butterfly with double sided tape and popped the wings up with some foam tape.
I used a shimmery off-white cardstock that matched the pearlescent embossing paste for the card base.
I finished off with a sentiment that I heat embossed with the same red embossing powder that I used in the butterfly.
I hope you enjoyed the puppy photos and the card!
