Four days ago a wonderful little 17 month old golden retriever named Buddy became part of our family. Buddy, Budster, or Butters has quickly wormed his way into our hearts and also has formed a tight bond with Meggie, our 3.5 year old golden. Meggie was devastated when our male golden Barney suddenly collapsed and died July 4. We decided she needed a companion and went to GRREAT, Golden Retriever Rescue, Education and Training in the DC/MD/VA area to adopt. She and Buddy have quickly become fast friends but she’s watching him – he’s quite puppy yet and it’s funny to watch his antics with her. I have a few more photos– mostly when they are on the bed because any other time I can’t get them to hold still long enough to snap a picture.
This was an ATC I made for a July swap with my ARTHaven Yahoo Group. The requirement was to add a funny hat to the picture! This is my first ATC and I really enjoyed making it.
We also had a Monthly Lottery and our theme was My Fair Lady this month. Winner would receive all the items that were entered into the lottery! Below is a picture of a purse card I made! I really had fun with these and found them perfect for my granddaughter! Surprisingly, I won and was the recipient of several journals, wall hangings and some lovely earrings. As the winner for the lottery, I also got to select the topic for next month’s lottery. I thought “Roaring 20’s” would be fun!
The last swap for the month was “Christmas” in July. Make a Christmas card and matching envelope to swap. This was my entry for the swap – difficult to think of holidays in July?
That’s it for today. Several projects in the works. See you soon. Thanks for stopping by.
