In the Webster's New American Dictionary, the word 'Pug" for which the second definition is 'boxer' is followed by "Pugilism', a noun defined as 'boxing' and 'Pugnacious', an adjective meaning combative.This makes me wonder what the origin of the word 'Pug' really is. 'Pug' is preceded by 'Puffin' so no clues there. But I digress.
I made a card and matching envelope for a woman who I don't know and will probably never meet who likes pugs. One thing led to another and now I'm going to have to become an amateur etymologist.
I am so pleased with how these turned out!
The background from the card goes back to this post. I found a pug picture in one of the zillion calendars I've recently purchased at the thrift store so I used the big picture for the envelope (the address will go in the speech bubble), and the little one on the card with some kissy lips I cut out of a Carmex ad. My favorite element though is the tape transfer of the dictionary definition. Tape transfers are my kryptonite du jour.
