OCL Sneak Peek! Pat the "BAD" Dog

I am so Blessed...My darling niece CAMBRIA gave me a couple of images from one of the new sets called PAT THE "BAD"DOG. He is just way too cute.

Stamp Set: Pat the "Bad" dog--Our Craft Lounge

Paper: old olive, creamy caramel, and retired SU DSP

Ink: Copic markers

The corner treatment was created using the scalloped circle punch...If you have questions about how please send me an email. I am awaiting permission to add a link from one of the ladies that was the original creator of these corners.

PATTY BENNETT has a great tutorial on doing this but due to me being kinda lame...I cant figure out how to put it here. FIGURED IT OUT!!!!

.so I took a few pictures using both the scalloped circle and the scalloped edge. To create this design you have to work from the back of the punch.

Heat in Australia

I just received this message from my DIL in Australia....Remember the temperatures she is talking about is in Centigrade 40C=104F

What a remarkable country! And we have THE cutest animals (AND some of the most deadly - I know!) But I thought you would appreciate how cute this is...! At home in Victoria the temperature has been above 44 degrees all week and they are forecasting another week of 40+ temperatures. Power is failing, trains have stopped running because tracks are buckling under the heat . It’s just scorching. And it seems that the people are not the only ones suffering.

Check out these photos of a little Koala which just walked onto a back porch looking for a bit of heat relief. The woman filled up a bucket for it and this is what happened!
