Slow and Steady

When making something complicated, it always pays to make a prototype.

Final product.

I have a friend who just had a big birthday.  For some reason, we have this thing where I HAVE to use my Dave the Dog stamp every year to make her something.  Neither of us has a dog, but we do have this thing with Dave the Dog.

This year, her greeting wishes her "Forty Daves" and "Forty Knights" of fun!  Not that the number forty has any meaning here.  None whatsoever....

By the way, the tag heart in my last post came from Better Homes and Gardens magazine's website.  I had gone there looking for another technique they had, making your own scratch-off formula from metallic paint and dishwashing soap.  Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like fun!

Well, I take it she has received her 40th B-day present. I bet it is the best present she has received EVER! So fun Ms. Pat.

this is very impressive! (and looking at it long enough can make a person a little dizzy too)
