Social Stamping - Animals

Welcome to another hop at Social Stamping a fabulous idea by the lovely Kelly Kent to enable us to be able to create together whilst so many are stamping alone during Isolation.

This week the theme is "Animals." Be it a pet, a wild animal or a new rescue, animals have all noticed the changes to our lifestyles during this time whilst we all spend more time at home. So many shelters have had an increase in the adoption of cats and dogs as people realise they are such good company especially when they have more time to give - and all our beloved pets will be enjoying having us around more during this time too.

You may have just arrived here from the lovely Peta Stephens and her fabulous projects or you can start the hop and click on the Next button at the bottom of each post to make your way around.

Not great photos today with Melbourne's fog and rainy weather but I created a fun puppy Wedding Card using two retiring sets - my all time favourite, Happy Tails and the versatile Piece of Cake. 

You may notice that the two dogs are facing each other - and there is only one such image in the stamp set. I used the Stamparatus and Silicone Sheet to create a mirror image of the stamp and used Blends and Copics to colour the dogs and flowers on the cake. Some sequins from the Peaceful Poppies complete this CAS card.

This is of course the perfect time to introduce you to my current best furry friend - Sally (Jr). Sally is a special girl who graduated from Guide Dogs Victoria last October as a Companion and with extra training helps me as an Assistance Dog. She enjoys both her work in harness and her play time out of it very much and always asks for her bed to be moved to beside the craft table when I'm making cards and finds it the perfect excuse to sleep the afternoon away! 😀

Next you are off to see the gorgeous projects that Julia Quinn has created to inspire you.
I hope that you enjoy your hopping around blog land and enjoy the coming week.
