Duke The Wonderdog Embroidery Hoop Art for THE CUTTING CAFE
Somewhere in my travels though elementary school (I am thinking it was 6th grade, but I cannot be certain) we were assigned pen pals. I got a girl named Karen Johnson. I recall thinking it was stinkin' cool to be writing to someone in a DIFFERENT SCHOOL.
Hey, now I write to people in different countries, but at the time it was one of the best parts of the week and quite exotic.
I still know Karen, do you believe it? We are facebook buddies after all these years.
I was digging around this huge tote I had for the photos I used on a layout I am posting tomorrow when I came across this Polaroid of Duke. I was pretty sure it was Karen's dog. Snapped a quick photo to confirm it was indeed her pooch.
Judging by her quests for yarn, she is also a crafter so I decided to use a bright pink embroidery hoop with burlap, and added some vintage buttons.
The stars of the piece (besides the Wonderdog Himself) are Mikala Anne & Elisha Jean. These Big Girl Elisha Jean and Friends printables from the Cutting Cafe size up to 6 inches. They also come with a girl wearing a dress and one with overalls so they are very twinny if you choose to print the same image with two different outfits. Or make one bigger and one a wee bit smaller! So cute!
A quick shout out to fellow crafting & DT buddy Lisa at You Made Me Ink who shared these bingo cards & hand made flowers with me. I am linking up to her project as her girls have strawberry pants and are adorable! She also used one of her bingo cards!
I can't wait to send this to Karen! Hope she enjoys it!
