He does the cutest thing when he wants us to throw the ball, he crouches or lays down on the ground and does not take his eye of the ball, then when we throw he shoots off and chases it. This is apparently what Kelpie's do when they're "working" the cattle or sheep ... it's amazing how this skill is inbred into them. Beau's not great at bringing the ball back to us yet, but he's getting there ... we're trying to bribe him with food to drop the ball when he gets to us.
The last photo is Ferg & I giving Beau a bath in the laundry ... he doesn't like it at all. We've got a real "tick" epidemic at the moment, so we're washing Beau and checking him everyday. Two out of the three other dogs we have on the property (not including Beau) have now had two ticks removed each in the last 2 days. These things can kill a full grown dog in no time.
Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.

I think this is such a cool photo of Pink, not to mention that I love her music and style.

PaperArts Yahoo Group containing a whole bunch of Punchinella / Sequin Waste. I received four different sized circles, two different sized stars and moon shapes and one that has had numbers punched out ... I'm going to have so much fun playing with all these different stencils.
I've been playing with some of the Bernie Berlin techniques for the ATC_World ATC Workshop Swap. Here are a couple that I thoroughly enjoyed playing with, the first one is Magazine Paper and the title of this card is "Eye Door Ewe" (I adore you) and the second one is Gesso and Magazine Images ... I'm really enjoying these ATC Workshop swaps, they're really stretching me outside my comfort zone.
I've also done my first zettiology or zetti ATC for an Advanced Artist Trading Card Yahoo Group swap in the UK ... when it's finished, I'll post a pic ... I'm having fun with it though.

The next ATC is for the Angel Swap at The Scrapbook Cupboard and I'm guessing most people will be doing pretty white angelic cards so I decided to do a dirty "Fallen Angel". The background is Paint on Paper Towel, which was actually what I had underneath other paper towels I was painting, so there's loads of different colours all through it. I placed a canvas stamp over the top of the background to tone it down a bit. The wings are a stamp I bought through Stampers Anonymous and they are inked in grey and embossed in black. I've coloured some blood on the girl with a watercolour pencil. I only just finished these cards today and they're due tomorrow ... I'm really only just making the deadlines of these swaps.
