As mentioned in my post yesterday I was hoping to post my tag for Tag Tuesday but I just didn't like how it turned out so I went back to my original idea and her it is.
This is Millie my little Yorkshire Terrier all tangled up in the bunting.
I started by printing out a picture of Millie on card and cutting it out. I then used some card and an image of the flag to make the tag. I attached Millie to the tag with foam pads and added the crown which was from a pack of card embellishments I bought from a local shop.
I made the bunting from black heavy duty cotton thread and organza and threaded it around Millie and glued it to the tag. I finished off by blending some blue oil pastel around the edges.
I chose Millie for the tag as she is much more photogenic than my other beautiful girl Rosey. ( That is how you spell her name, not Rosie). She is so black that she doesn't show up very well on photos. Here is a photo taken just recently on our a trip to Astley Hall in Chorley.
Rosey is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Jack Russell She has such a beautiful soft thick coat. Out of the litter we got her from there was one pup with mid length hair and all the rest were short haired. Rosey was the only long haired pup and as soon as I saw her she came and laid down on my knee and I just had to have her. Two years later we got Millie and they get on great and I love them both dearly.
We often take a trip to Astley Hall they have lovely grounds and it makes for a lovely day out .The grounds are beautifully kept and there are facilities for playing tennis, a putting green and bowls. The house is open to the public at certain times and is free entry. There is also a nice little place to have a coffee and some food, their lemon drizzle cake is a must.
I was going to post some more pics but for some reason they won't download onto my post. Perhaps I'll be able to post them next time.
Bye for now. x
