Seeing Eye to Eye ;)

**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page  😦  **

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Bingo!(check blog for board).We have the fabulous Zap Pow Designs as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Rather than go down the Halloween route with Noah,The Lil Monster by  Zap Pow Designs I made a quirky  friendship card – or maybe that should be fiendship card 😉 First I opened him up in Word,then after resizing and copying,flipped him horizontally,positioned just so and finally Grouped to make one picture.I decided to do some fun paper piecing with him/them!The paper was a lovely,thick quality so I cut the eye section out using a craft knife to give extra dimension.As Noah has such defined lines it made him a dream to cut out and being able to do so carefully it means I have leftovers to make another pair 🙂 To overcome the problem of them each having a coloured tooth I filled in over the paper with a white gel pen.Their eyes have been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.The hearts are brads positioned over the original drawn ones.The line I chose from the Bingo Board is  Twine,Image and Brads.

It’s kinda funny when the kids say our dog is “Mummy’s best friend”,as opposed to man’s,because she devotes her days to following me,whimpering and scratching at any door that comes between us I call her “Mummy’s best fiend”.

Here’s a little story about said “fiend”.Whilst shopping I thought I would get my poor left behind Socks a treat.When I got back I’d just brought the last bag of
shopping in and got ready to unpack only to find somebody had already started!

In moments like these you cant help but say “Oh,what have you done?”

Not liking being in trouble with her Mummy she crawled across the floor on her belly and ended up trying her hardest to get me to forgive her with a tickle under the chin.

But,of course,you can’t resist a little face like that,can you?! ♥

I suppose at least she only took what was hers and not the bar of chocolate I’d bought as a treat for myself 🙂
