Fly Away Home

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We are under construction here at the Diamond Dragonfly for a while longer.
SparkPlug is on the mend; however nursing a sick dog is time consuming. He is looking and acting more like a 10 year old instead of 14+. Taylor found a DIY recipe for healthy dog food and dog treat recipes on Pinterest. The dogs LOVE the food and we are hoping it will help their health.
My card was made for a man who has stage 4 cancer. He was the assistant to my daughter-in-laws’ hairdresser. It was hand delivered with a lovely letter from me saying how much we would all like to know he was on his way to Heaven when he finishes his sojourn here on earth and that God loves him.
 The supplies I used for this card can be found in the links below for all my Canadian friends. Holiday mini Page 23

Another fun, family friendly, challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘”of course” it’s always “Anything Goes” as far as styles or projects.
This is our 199th challenge. Thank you so much for taking time to share your wonderfully creative art with us. We appreciate your participation and we love seeing your creations.

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We are under construction here at the Diamond Dragonfly for a while longer.


I have started a few Stampin Up projects but turned my hand to some fun stamps and dies from Simon Says #STAMPtember.  I really like how these cards turned out and will be entering them in a few challenges.
#STAMPtember   Using Happy Day Craft Die and Oh Happy Day and Best Hugs, clear stamp set. Lots of fun and prizes at Simon Says.
I hope you pop over to Simon Says Stamp  and enter often and enjoy the month long celebration.

Faithfulness

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We are under construction here at the Diamond Dragonfly for a while longer.
SparkPlug has required constant care this past week. Last night when I took him to see Dr. Als at the Orleans Veterinary Hospital,  I thought we wouldn’t be bringing him home however he now has a new lease of life. He required antibiotics ( an injection that will work for two weeks) ear drops, special shampoo and an oral corticosteroid. I am so thankful.
I have been working in the Studio and had planned a relaxing time to make my card for this challenge.  Company arrived and stayed.

I debossed the DP with Butterflies to give some depth. The filigree Butterflies were to be shined up with stickles which would not come out of the bottle. As I was about to re-pierce the opening about one teaspoon plopped out onto the wax paper. So I just dipped them into the gooey mess. I like the shine

Joy And Peace

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
We are under construction here at the Diamond Dragonfly for another week.
 ‘Heat wave’, along with her best friend ‘high humidity’ have been visiting here all week. I mean HOT, it’s been over 100*F some days.
SparkPlug is eating well but his hind legs give out three or four times a day. It’s very sad for me. The time with my dogs gets more precious every day.
I have reorganized the craft room and my blog face lift has begun.
A huge thank you to Diane Noble for her creative art work. You can find her
 here.  Non of the links are live yet but this week should see things getting finished.
I  have the two old dogs both needing hourly care, I have Molly, Oliver’s sister and Oliver, both Springer Spaniels belonging to two of my sons. Granny is the sitter for vacations and days away. Busy is an understatement, but mega fun.
I will be having a giveaway, two very lovely prizes, after the blog is finished. Leave a comment, and sign up for my emails to qualify if you like to win things.
Whimsy…….My card is in the Rain Forest, the ribbon is steam and mist rising from the Amazon River. The doily is the mist in the RF and Butterfly is joining his friends off in the far left distance.

How Lovely On The Mountains........

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly
This week has flown by very quickly. It has been raining and cool the past two days however we are getting a stretch of warm sunny days.
SparkPlug and Cricket are frail but still eating, sleeping and asking to go out. Oliver, Taylor’s Springer Spaniel (visits often) had a few stomach issues.
I have reorganized the craft room and I’m getting ready to give my blog a face lift. I will be having a giveaway, two very lovely prizes after the blog is finished.
I like different folds.
