Pugtastic Tuesday: A brief note from Elvis

Woof, woof! My Mommy has been busy travelling the past two weeks. Last week she went to Missouri to see some new clients and today she is going to Arkansas. I'm happy to stay at home with my PugDaddy and my two brothers.

Don't worry, Mommy has not run out of pug collectibles to share with you. She will be back soon because that's what she always tells me when she leaves.

Pugs and kisses,
Elvis, Mommy's #1 Baby
I will be Sweet 16 in October!

P.S. If you look at my handsome photo, you can see my look alike pug wind spinner (yes, we have a fawn one like LarryPug and Caesar too) and my look alike pug flag in the waaaay back.

Card Making Class at The Paper Source

Lately I haven't done much quilting. I just haven't had the time or the inclination. Instead, I have been trying a ton of other crafts this summer.

This past Saturday, some of my friends and I took a card making class at The Paper Source in Dedham. The class was taught by Katie, who was an excellent instructor. We used rubber stamps, markers, paint, confetti and much more! Our favorite new toys were the sticker maker machine and the heat embossing tool. We had so much fun. Of course, Julie and I used lots and lots of glitter!
Here is Marion rubber stamping.

Trying some water color spatter techniques using a water-filled brush pen.
I also enjoyed writing with the glue pen and covering my writing with glitter. Check out the neat tray in the foreground. It acts like a funnel, so you can re-use your glitter and not waste any. Of course I bought one! And a glue pen too!

We will definitely be making some more cards together soon.

Thanks for visiting!
