No BONES about it!


This was another weird request so I'll give you a little background. Its for a lady who is going to be 70. She has just had a hip replacement and before she had it she always joked that if she got one she would give the old hip to her wee dog Molly. So the friends who ordered this card wanted me to incorporate that into the card. I used a hip bone image from google and cut my image so I could slip it into her hand. This is what I came up with and I hope she gets it lol.
I will put a pic of a little dog with a very worried look on the insert. I followed a few challenges for this one:
1. Midnight Madness - followed the great sketch (two to choose from)
2. Bee crafty - sew cute
3. Fab n Funky - shabby chic
4. Saturday Spotlight - household item (sewing machine and newsprint)
Papers - Brenda Pinnick
Image - Bugaboo
Medium - promarkers and glitter
Embellishments - handmade flowers (which look like fried eggs lol) computer text, stitching
Car just failed its MOT, so I'm pretty cross with the garage at the minute (lots of feet stamping)grrrr.
