I'm blushing! Well, if you don't want to just wist it, you can make it yourself!! I got the pattern here:
http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=2350&category_id=72
at urban threads, which I found out about here on Craftster...and used it more for inspiration than copying it exactly...and started out using variegated green embroidery floss, but found that since the piece was so small, it wasn't getting variegated very well...so I switched to a solid green...I sometimes used one string of floss for finer detail, and sometimes 2 or 3 strands at a time to make thicker 'strokes' to fill in...

Funny, because I thought it was going to be super easy/fast, being small and one color, but each tiny stitch...really adds up!!! LOL! I'm glad I got it done in time! And I almost didnt send it because its kinda heavy comparatively, and I didn't want it taking up too much space/weight!

Just thought I'd share! Urban threads has some fun stuff, so check it out!

I got a bundle of joy in my mailbox this morning from gamemom42

There was so much in there,  I wish I could have gotten more in her envelope!
I can't wait to use some of these papers in necklaces My boys first reaction was Clowns!!!
The fable of the fox and the boar fits perfectly in a little frame I've been holding on to, so now I just need to glass it.

Look what I got!! Yay! My envelope from Taraston arrived, and it is full of fun stuff!!
Here's mostly everything together:
Chihuahua Stamp (LOVE LOVE LOVE!)
Post it notes
Stickers, one large one that says I love my Chihuahua!
Embroidery Floss on tags
more tiny tags (on beautiful white paper)
Inchies (My first!)


And my most favorite things:

2 very delicate (VERY!) paper cuttings! Featuring, of course, chihuahuas! I'm going to glue these onto some pretty patterned paper, and frame them, for sure! They are gorgeous!

Funny that this envelope has so much chihuahua gear...I was just telling the hubby that since our baby came along 5 months ago, I feel like our dogs (3 chi's) are a bit neglected...They cant WAIT for the baby to go to bed, so they can jump in my lap! And yesterday hubby found one sitting in baby's little bouncer chair! LOL! So it's good to be reminded of how much I DO love my pups, and I DO!

Oh, and after seeing everything, my husband said: Well I want a craft partner!! I want someone to send ME stuff! (Jealous much?!)

Thank you Taraston, so MUCH! I love it all!!!

Those paper cuttings are awesome! Very cool *nods*

He he, my hubby said something similar the other day. "Why not set up a Man swap." I looked at him funny to which he replied "Not like that, lol, just that a swap between guys would be interesting." I love that man ^-~
