Crafting is...a piece of cake

A very good morning to all my lovely bloggy buds from your bundle of golden deliciousness...I've been trying my hand at this old crafting malarkey...having a go at making a Father's Day card. Left home alone yesterday...I was feeling a little bored and considering my old Crafty Mum is a tad busy at the mo and would no doubt be putting on her "Mrs Grumpy Knickers" face if I dare to mention adding yet another card to the crafty list I thought I might just dip my paws in and have a go...how difficult can it be...
I spend most of the day snuggled up in the cubbyhole but even in snooze mode I'm all ears so let's put all those crafty hints and tips to the test...first I need to choose one of those stampy things...
it has to be something macho...Dad is not going to be happy with lots of girlie flowers or sparkly stuff...what about this one...
now for the bit that could end up with me in deep dog doodah again...perhaps paws and ink pads were not meant to go together...inky paw prints on the carpet are not going to go down well so I need to approach this scientifically but perhaps I'll have a little snooze first...
don't know what all the fuss is about...an absolute piece of cake...well it's not exactly rocket science is it so after choosing suitable paper...yes I've definitely been paying attention haven't I...I got to work cutting some circles and take note...I'm doing my thing for the environment and recycling some of Lord Timmie's packaging (he who is second in line on the cubbyhole's list of adorable fellas - no prizes for guessing who is top dog)
But I'm not going to share my card with you just yet...I'm thinking of entering it for tomorrow's challenge at Penny Black Saturday...I've got inside info on what that's going to be...one of the many perks of being a valued member of the cubbyhole crew and I can't see anything in the rules that says us canine crafters can't enter but first I need to figure out how to work the linky thing.
I'll see you all tomorrow over at Penny Black Saturday and I know what my crafty Mum is going to say when she sees this...."don't believe everything you read"
Big Furry Hugs and Snuggles for now

  10. Now that is a brilliant choice & I'm sure that Dad will thoroughly enjoy it - especially when he knows you made it......perhaps you had some help with the inky bits - Brodie??

  18. You take me away into another world for a few minutes Buddy. Oh how I wish the real world could be like yours. The card is looking good and bearing in mind just how long a male actually looks at a card I'm sure he will think it's the real Mcoy.Well done Buddy, keep them stories coming.Love it.
