Furry Friends

Hello there ...

I've a few days left enjoying my Aunt's company and we've thoroughly loved being together so I'm sorry I haven't been around to your blogs for a few days ...

My Aunt does silk paintings ... She makes animal pictures sewing layers of silk threads and they are amazing ... Yes, I'm biased I know but it's something that I couldn't do and she does it right from looking at a photo.
She recently completed one making a cushion to back it onto for a special animal lover and asked me to make her a card to send with it...

Here's my card


The inside reads ... "To another"
The male recipient loves dogs in particular and I'd just bought these Avery Elle stamps so they were perfect!


The Simon Says Stamp wednesday challenge is all about Furry Friends so I'll enter my card over there 
I coloured the pups using Promarkers and then just hand cut them


I thought you would like to see the cushion and the beautiful silk painting my 88 year old aunt created


Isn't it gorgeous? Here's a closer look at the detail she puts into her work


The eyes always amaze me ... She's so clever


I hope to be around visiting you all soon ... 

Till then enjoy the rest of your day and be safe
