Beardie Bows

Happy Halloween!


Majik Beardie here again ~ Mom is really busy at the moment ~ something to do with company end of year accounts ~ whatever that is?  So, I have decided to fill in for her today.

In her infinite wisdom Mom decided after my groom on Sunday to take this photo ~ well I ask you what next a Santa hat?

We Beardies are all keeping an eye out for spooks and the like that might need a big barking at to shoo them away ~ we just hope no-one starts setting fireworks off as we are VERY scared of them ~ mind you it is cold and raining here, so that might keep them inside!

Anyway its time for our stroll round the block before it gets too dark (we don't want to bump into any ghosts or ghouls) and then it's Beardie dinner time ~ biscuits and chicken ~ yummy.

See you soon.

Love and Beardie hugs
Majik xxxx

Hello everyone,

I hope you are well and keeping warm!

I have not been around much in blogland because (drum role) I have had my first commission ~ yay!

Remember this card, well the recipient contacted me and asked if I could make it into Christmas cards for him and I said yes ~ well what else was I going to say!  They finally went in the post today all the way to Spain ~ yes I've gone international!  Will post some photos later.

Today I have a quick share ~ this is a card I made for a friend, who like me enjoys the odd glass of red.

I saw these stamps in a magazine feature earlier in the year and bought the whole set, ideal when you want a slightly quirky and humerous card ~ not everyone likes cute.

When I had finished colouring the image, I decided I didn't like the colour of her dress (blue), so I had a lightbulb moment ~ don't get many of those ~ and decided to paper piece it.  I think it works okay?

It doesn't show up on the photo, but I used Glossy Accents on the wine glass to make it sparkle.

Well, must dash ~ housework to catch up on after all that card making ~ lol!

Have a lovely evening and weekend.

Majik Moments


This is Majik Beardie here ~ Mom said I could have a go on her blog ~ after all it is named after me!  As you can see I have grown up a bit since the picture above, but I still think I look cute.

I live with Mom and Dad, who we have nicknamed 'The Bonio Provider' ~ hereinafter to be known as TBP ~ he goes off on the choo choo each day just to earn money to buy us all Bonios.  My fur family Bailey and Sorrell live here as well ~ they are Beardies too.

Every now and then we all go off on a mini adventure with a lot of other Beardies ~ this happened last Sunday.  We all went on a jolly nice ramble along the canal side and ended up in a pub ~ funny though ~ even though it was supposed to be OUR day out ~ only the uprights got to eat anything ~ not a chip or even a doggie biscuit to be had ~ I think we need to speak to the Bearded Collie Club committee about this!

Dad with us three Beardies
And they're off!

We are off again in just over a week and Mom keeps telling up we are going to ride on a choo choo ~ something called a steam train?  I wonder if that's like a sauna on wheels?

Well it has been really nice woofing with you all ~ hope to come back soon with more news from Beardie world.

Love and Beardie Hugs

Night Nurse

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well out there in blogland ~ and keeping warm in this chilly weather in the UK.

We went on one of our Bearded Collie Club rambles on Sunday ~ we were so lucky with the weather. It just started spitting with rain as were sat outside the pub having a bite to eat, but very quickly blowing over.  Majik Beardie has been pestering me to let her have a go on my blog (seeing as how it is named after her), she has been inspired by the antics of Daisy and Holly on THIS blog here ~ so watch this space, might publish one or two photos of our ramble as well.

Today I have a retirement card to share with you ~ I made this for a friend who just happens to be the wife of the Scottish gentleman who 'Braveheart Bo' below was made for and yes she is, or should I say was, a nurse ~ I see a theme going on here.

As I had to colour the little uniform in blue, I have tried to tie the rest of the card in with this colour theme ~ by-the-way she absolutely loved it!
