Quirky Puppy....

On Donna's blog the other day she showed this card.  Isn't it cute... The little Shih Tzu is a freebie image from Tiddly Inks (here).  My workmate Linda, has a little Shih Tzu called Riley .. so I made this card for her... to celebrate the New Year.
Shih Zhu New Year

I used water colour pencils to colour in the image and cut it out with nesties, using my new eyelet circles to make the matt.   I used the computer to do the sentiment....And I used a card base that was sitting in my scrap pile... one where I had put the crease in the wrong spot so had added a panel on the bottom to even up!!!!  Thought he looked quite quirky...

Last night I worked on my CCC card.... My recipient is Mariette in The Netherlands.... so until she gets the card, I will not post it here.  I can tell you I did some masking so I will put it into the HA challenge eventually!!!! 

And tonight I started to make another card with one of my favourite stamps from last year... one of the Poppy stamps from Delicate Blossoms set.  Have got to make a trip to the LSS tomorrow as I want a very dark blue/green bazzill for it......... hopefully they will have just the colour I want!!!!!!!!  (plus a few other bits and pieces no doubt)

Well it's bed time for me..... this having to work is a real pain.... interrupts the crafting time!!!!  Take care.
