Speaking of the background for the snow leopard - I thought it would be nice to add a new plant block. Almost all my other plant blocks at 9 x 12" or smaller because that was the size of the old blocks... now that I have a 12" roll, they can be bigger.
I'd been wanting to carve a rose bush based on the blocks from the 1597 edition of Gerard's Herbal. I prepared the block, transferred a template with drawing, and have carved the outline so far.

This week was National Puppy Day - Honey had a great day. She's very excited to be back on the trails, mud, snow piles, and all.
