Walking the Dog

Good morning and Happy Bank Holiday to everyone in the UK.  It is sunny in Blackpool at the moment but I think rain is forecast today which is typical BH weather I guess.  For today's card I have used an image from Wild Rose Studio which always reminds me of my sister:


although my sister has two little dogs I guess I should have masked another one there!  I have coloured with Copics and Prismas and added some Liquid Pearls to her jewellery.  The papers are Basic Grey from The Little Black Dress pad.  The tree and clouds are from Memory Box and I think the fence is too but I just had a look to check and can't find it!! I really need to have a major sort out in my craft room lol!  The sentiment is computer generated and I have cut the image out with a Spellbinders label (? which number) and distressed the edges with some distress ink.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Two Sisters - Anything Goes
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Digi Doodles - Anything Goes
Creative Belli - Animals
Truly Scrumptious - Distressing and Die Cuts/Punches

I think we are going to do a bit of spring cleaning today, yesterday was gardening as it was so nice.  Hopefully I will be able to fit some crafty time in too :-) . Well thanks so much for looking and any comments you may leave its always a pleasure to read them, enjoy your day and take care xx
