2 Border collies and a table

I usually like to post in the morning - I'm a bit of an early bird and love the peace and quite while everyone else is asleep. I never have been one of those who can lie in, not even when I was a teenage. Before I joined blogland I use to take Ice for her walk about 5.30am but now I find myself stopping at my computer ( just to check something ), next thing I know it's time to get Robin up and ready for school. This morning however I couldn't get my photos loaded so had to leave it.
This is a bit of a cheats card since the  K&Co Hopscotch paper looked too good  to spoil with  any extras. The stamp is another from Jayne Netley Mayhew and a joy to work with. Stamped and embossed in black, eyes and tongue coloured with Promarkers , cut out, layered up - job done! 
Similar idea here but this time using purples and lime greens. Birthday tag  printed from Silhouette .
Yesterdays animal charity dog show was less nerve racking than I expected and although I didn't sell that many ( 12 ) nearly everyone who took the time to look actually bought one.  As I have mentioned before I have an outlet at a pet parlour ( hence lots of animals on my cards rather than cute characters ) well one good thing was that another lady doing the same thing asked me if she could have a set for her shop too. Wow, what a compliment. Biggest problem is it's the other side of Plymouth and I'd probably spend all my profit on petrol getting them to her. It may be cheaper for me to post her a batch. 
My set up before the sale. What you can't see in this picture is the water coming off the  canopy! At least it did clear up and the sun came out later.
