Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Dogs & Cats!

Hello, how are things? Good I hope!

So a new challenge starts today over at Chocolate, Coffee and Cards  and our theme this fortnight is Dogs & Cats! So pull out those doggy and kitty images and make us a card!

There is a fab prize on offer for the winner so check out the blog!

In light of the fact that I am a huge animal lover (I am mad enough to have 3 boisterous dogs) it seems odd that I have very few dog or cat images in my vast stamp collection! But there you go!  After extensive searching I had to stretch the theme a bit and use a recent purchase of mine Mara from Mo’s Digital Pencil!  I love, love, love her!

 It is a bit ‘spot the dog’ I know but you have got to love that little mutt, she has such a great expression. To me she’s saying, ‘Is that a cat? I’m sure that’s a cat?  I’m off after that cat in a minute!” My dogs often have that expression!
The quote is one I found on the Internet which is just soooooo true! Although I don’t own any diamonds so it’s going to HAVE to be the dog!! J

Stamps: Mara
Sentiment: Computer generated
Dies: None (shock horror!!)
Paper/Card: Neenah Desert Storm – others from stash
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir pencils & blending solution
Others:  Gems
Hopeless Hand drawings: Dodgy Doodling and paw prints, which are obviously from a variety of pooches as they are all so different!!! J  J

So pick up that lead and walk Fido over to see what my clever teamies have done for this challenge and play along!

Thanks so much for looking and enjoy your day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
