My animals...

Well, sad truth is....I don't really have any (except for my hand made variety).  For various reasons.

But...I love them just the same and like to work towards helping out where I can.

You have all seen my little donkeys on the sidebar and you know I love cats too.. but, look at these guys who arrived by mail the other day.  Designed by Elle, who has a unique style with animals... please go see her creations.

This is a set of cards she designed for Greyhound Rescue West of England ....   a group dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abused and abandoned greyhounds.  It's a great way to help out and also to get a beautiful set of cards designed by somebody I "know".  Not personally...but, from Flickr... where I've been looking at her art for a long time now.



















I love the detail.... the whimsy and humour.....  her special love for animals is so apparent  .....

I don't know if there are any left as they always sell out pretty quickly...but, if you're interested..check out their site.

Thanks for the link - her work is fabulous!! I know someone who has greyhounds and says they make fabulous pets .... and contrary to what you might think, they don't actually need a lot of exercise!

I can't wait to check out her link - what lovely work she does! We have an active greyhound rescue group in our area too, and I am definitely going to forward this to a friend who is active with them. Thanks for posting this!

Beautiful card....I will definitely check out the link, Vee. My nephew owns a greyhound and she's very spoiled ~ :)

The card with the greyhounds is wonderful! We have many of those sweet dogs rescued and living a lovely life in our community. We have a dalmatian (our third over a long period). I need to spend more time with your wonderful creations.

Thanks for your "visit".

Best,
Bonnie
