As its Bonfire Night here on 5th November in the UK - our challenge over at Inchy challenge blog is Fireworks. I've done the Catherine Wheel as its one of my favourites so I thought I'd see if I could find out where it got its name. Wish I hadn't bothered - apparently it was named after an instrument of torture, the breaking wheel, upon which St Catherine was martyred. Hmm, not so nice.
I thought you might like to see a picture of a new addition to the Whitehead household - puppy! She is a Welsh Springer Spaniel and will be ready to come to us on 13 December. She's not really for Christmas - definitely for life! - its just so happened that's when one has come available. We thought we didn't quite have enough pets what with 3 cats, a dog and a horse!!! Isn't she gorgeous - We're all busy trying to decide on names for her? Any suggestions????
Its a while since I've been joining in with the challenges - but TMTA sparked my enthusiasm this morning with their theme of BROWN - I love the colour brown in all its nuances - I've used all Stampin Up stamps and supplies for this ATC. I just love this pheasant and have used him lots of times already - he lends himself really well to embossing!
The Challenge over at Mixed Media Monday this week is Opposites Attract - I used a Cherry Pie stamp here
