In doing a layout for my beloved muttlings, I wanted to create my own flower. So I took a scalloped ruffle die, AND some material I had forever.........Just trying to cut the material didn't work.So I added paper as a shim and wa-la - A material scalloped edge doily looking thing. OR a flower. Machine is still in operating order. So below is the material flower I made for my beloved muttlings. I also punched some paper flowers and used the material in the middle for continuity. I have no idea what the paper is there were no markings, names - nada on it but its perfect! Heidi Swapp stamp. I should've titled it The Spotlings and Redheaded Step Dog. Our family dynamics were a bit unusual. bwahahaha!I miss my muttlings. We had them for over 13 years. They were a little leary of Shane at first, who was like a galloping tornado, and they were used to calm. Rox just fit in wherever she went. And none of them paid attention that I was the alpha female. Snort.

Every other month during the spring and summer of last year, I said goodbye to each one. Occasionally I see Shirley sunning by the front door. Her favorite spot. And when all 3 were bothered by Shane, they crammed themselves under my desk (the space was barely big enough for my feet). Then they let me be the alpha female. bwahaha!
