Hello to all my friendly pals and Thank You for liking my wishing card. Hope you are all well. My neck is still twinging but I can look about now, just not up and down. It is a bit of a disadvantage at 5 foot 2 inches not to be able to look up of course.
As you all know my attention span is ....... so I cannot find this blog again but it gave me a real giggle. Someone had posted their vital statistics at the side of their blog. It consisted of 

  • Number of stamps owned
  • Number of stamps used
  • Number of dies owned
  • Number of dies used
  • etc, etc
This appealed to my newly formed OCD tendencies but perhaps not to my sensible side. I could buy new items if I set my optimum usage percentage very low, lol .
OK I know I'm barking so here goes my last 2 doggie cards. The labrador die was a bargain but I realised after I had bought it that I have never seen a labrador standing still. 
Paper  and card - card blank is a 6 inch square 
backing paper from my scrap box,
 Dies used :- Popystamps labrador ,
Spellbinders Tile Works.
Paper  and card - card blank is a 6 inch square 
backing paper from old stash,
 Dies used :- Die-namics Chicken Wire ,
Spellbinders Labels 23 and
Wooden  Scottie dog.

Hugs to all, Flora.


  1. Hi Flora, your post is giving me a great chuckle reading it. I would never dare to put my vital stats on here, jus in case Alistair saw it, he'd have a fit if he knew the amount spent.

    Two wonderful cards Flora, great images and design, love the Westie in his jumper.
    I hope your neck loosens up soon, and I can imagine the difficulty in looking up, I'm only 4.111/2, the hald makes all the difference of course, take care, hugs Kate x

  2. Flora your post made me smile and I think a lot if us crafters have OCD and I certainly wouldn't confess to how much crafty stuff I have OR


  3. great card Flora, love the dies. And no I dread to think how much crafty stash I've got....!

  14. Yes Flora you are so right I don't think Labradors ever stay still! Two wonderful cards love your chicken wire background too! Susan xx

  15. Wonderful cards, my labrador is such a super darling...she is very still inside otherwise she knows she's out...but outside she's a bundle of reagards to the extra on...
    in answer to your question....
    being a nurse I am super organized, housework gets done before I craft, I do the bed, washing, floors, clean up in general if needed, shower, then do some gardening, if needed, have breakfast, then I sit and prepare my cards. Have lunch, rest in my craftroom, take the dog to the vet when necessary, go visit dad for three hours in the afternoon from 3-6pm....come home, prepare tea, then watch a bit of telly if there is something on that I like, then I craft...go to bed around hope you now know what my day is like....I sometimes go crafting with the girls once a fortnight but that's for scrapping....are you tired yet....??

  16. Fab cards Flora. As for the questions..... I daren't answer them! My husband might see!!!

    Hope your neck is still improving.


  17. Fabulous Creations sweetie huggles Pops x x x

  18. I love to visit your blog Flora, you always make me chuckle with your funny stories.
    Two wonderful cards, I love the bright background on the first one and your chicken wire die cut is brilliant on the second one.

  19. These are really sweet doggie cards and I see you got to use several of your dies too:) As for unused stash I think we all feel a bit guilty. There should be a site for swapping stash, one person's trash could be another one's treasure, right?

  20. Great cards Flora and as you would expect I adore that little Scottie. Take care and best wishes

  24. Hi Flora, I love both of your cards, the Labrador is gorgeous and the little scottie dog in the second is such a cutie with that little jumper on. The chicken wire is fabulous. Thanks so much for your visit. Hugs, Anne xx

  25. Flora I would hate for my husband to know how much card making things I have bought since I got my GC in November ? That's not counting the scrapbooking bits I have too. Our lab is like Pams he is still. 99% of the time except for his tail. Love your cards they are fab. Hazel xx

  26. Hi Flora had to laugh at your vital statistics story!

    Have fun crafting and taking stock!
