Dreaming of Love

Good Morning,

My Crafty Friends, Visitors and Follower,
I trust everyone is ok?

Right so her is the report on the Thunder Jacket that
we purchased for Oscar, remember it was to try and
calm him down whilst all the fireworks were on.

Well I have to say did not make that much difference
Oscar was still quite stressed even with the jacket on
and there was no difference once we removed it.
Therefore in my case ( and I stress this is in the case
of Oscar only) not worth  the money- cost £35.00
but at least we gave it a go.

Today we are starting our new 
challenge  217  over at :-

The challenge theme is


and its been chosen by Pauline

The girls have been working hard to
create designs to inspire you, so please
take a moment to view their work and
if you can, leave them a comment.

I have chosen to use an image from the cd
Yesterdays Memories

You can purchase it and others by clicking on 
the link   HERE.  There are also some great
freebies too,  so well worth checking it out.

The prize for the winner will be
2 digi downloads from the Ooh La La Creations Store


1. Started with an 8 x 8 card and folder back the top section
in half.
2. Printed off the topper and backing paper from the cd, before
adhering them I have distressed the edges and added distress
ink, vintage photo around the edges.

3. Before I adhered the section that has been folder back I have
wrapped a piece of burgundy velvet ribbon around it.

4. Using the Spellbinder die 5 x7 Mystical Embrace card creator
I cut the frame again using one of the co-ordinating papers
but printed it onto card stock. I then adhered the topper so
the the image appears to be in a frame.

5. The flowers are from Sweet Lilac and the added embellishments
 are from my stash and to complete I created the pearls using
 Tonic Nuvo Crystal  Drops.

Thanks for the visit and your comments.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting

  24. Finally catching up on your blog hun, this is a beautiful card, my friend. Poor Oscar, I fear that not much would have helped our pets this years with the fireworks, as they were, very much louder...Jet never bothers with them, this year he spent the night of the 5th being sick, and even now, he is hesitant to just run out of the back door...xxxxx


Thank you for your comments, I do appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog. Jennifer xxx
