Its a friend at works birthday on Friday, and he just loves dogs, so what else could I make him, he has three mad dogs that are all rescued animals, mine some times go to play with them if I need a sitter and each time they come back with a new bad habit, they'll soon be as naughty as his.LOL.
This is one of my fave stamps from Whimsy, with having the plaque you can put any text on you wish or cut the plaque of and he's just got a stick. I coloured him with copics, I used the cool greys but by mistake I picked up W1 to go over it all with by mistake, really pleased with the effect though. Used my old K & Co papers had these for ever and they never seem to go down, magic, cut the border with my Martha border punch and ribbon from stash.

Hi there, sorry I havn't been about lately, Mum has been in hospital having a new knee fitted, unfortunetly she wasn't well and the Doctors thought she had a blood clot on her lung.
Thank goodness all the tests have come back clear and she can now start to get over her operation.
We have another great sketch from Dawn, you can do what you like with it as long as its still recognisable.
I needed a Wedding card and it worked well with what I had planned.
Its a Stamping Bella stamp, highlighted with copics, some embossed silver card, ribbon, pearls and slider from stash.

We are having a DT call over at ICS if you fancy being one of the team please pop over and take a look, the cut off date is July 24th so you must be quick.
We are being sponsored by Paper Romance they are offering the winner a $5.00 voucher to spend in their store. Pop over and take a peak they have some scrummy stuff.
Take care

Sweet Pea

Wow, how lucky am I? I won this gorgeous stamp from Sweet Pea Stampers and I get to be a gust designer this week.
This is the card I made, they want black, white and one other colour, as you can see I chose red.
I stamped it first on black card with white embossing powder, added a few gems for stars, did the same on white vellum, and coloured the back with copics then cut out the wings, stamped it again on white card, coloured with copics then cut out the figure and layered them all up together, added a bit of glamour dust here and there.
I used Craftwork papers, the flowers, ribbon and gems are from my stash.

Simple Life

Hi there, its still gorgeous weather here, bit of a breeze today which was very welcome.
Mum was supposed to be having a new knee op today but the surgeon pulled out and she should be having it done next Monday now, unless he changes his mind again. My brother has arranged to come over from Belgium , so it will be great to see him.
Thought I would use this sleepy chappy, he looks so relaxed in the sunshine, I'm sure this is what my hubby does when he goes fishing.
Its a LOTV stamp coloured with copics, cut out with a circle nestie and scallop nestie, rub on was part of a pressie from a crafty friend, ribbon from stash not quite sure what make the papers are. I'm entering this into the following:
