Tea and Cookies !

Well i actually started this card a few months ago and just never got round to finishing it .I have a box with images that i have been coloured ready for a rainy day .. Do you ever get those days were it's just relaxing just to colour rather than go the whole hog of making a card ? Well i must have had a few of those days because this box is half full !



Love this Tilda with her heart cookies !  Its not often i use this colour combo , i dont know why i really like the teals and browns .

This is my first card in months - really !  The inside is decorated also and ofcourse matching  I'd like to enter this card into these challenges .

Fimo fairy door /name plaque

Well the fimo has eventually come out ... yes im getting back to my old love of fimo - soon i shall be doing the cards again !

I made the fimo fairy and teddy  door / name plaque  for orders for Hearthounds a non profit organization that helps the homeless and their street dogs with food and vet bills .. I was very touched by two doggies in particular . One called Zac a street dog in Edinburgh ,he belongs to Kevin who is homeless . Many of the homeless who have dogs relay on them for companionship - in many cases it can be the only family they have and will often feed the dog before themselves...

This is
Zac he is 13 years old and has bad joints - he needs pain relief and metacam - so we are fundraising for him and another dog called Buddy who needs urgent dental treatment for his bleeding gums ..

They gave Zac a coat and food for the week plus treats ! he looks like he is smiling in the picture .!!

              This door / name plaque has a cute fairy with glittery wings and teddies ! 

The name / door plaques are available to order - monies go towards hearthounds and its their paypal that it goes into .. they are £14 plus £2.50 uk posting - overseas will vary .. please email me to order - colours of plaque / hair etc Boys also available - name / pirate and teddies / puppies .. or more bespoke orders welcome ! maddy.hill@hotmail.co.uk for orders or via facebook .


I you would like to help hearthounds there are many ways to do so -- whether you could help with a blog appeal ?? or donate or just share this post or please if your on face book check
them out  here and see the wonderful ways in which they help - its only very small so everything and every share counts xx  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hearthounds-UK/427594664019097?ref=br_tf
