Cutie Pie Challenge – Anything But a Card!

Helloooo! Hope you are well!

We have a brand new challenge at the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog  this month and our theme is Anything But a Card! So find a cute image and make it into….well…anything but a card!!

We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps
Now Bugaboo Stamps  were very generous and allowed the team to choose our own images for this challenge and I chose to use Kidz Christmas Boy and His Dog
The photo looks a tad odd as I had to hang my ‘bauble’ from a mini Christmas tree and this makes it seem ginormous!! Trust me it’s not! J
 Ooooh too cute! Love that little doggie but he is wearing antlers and I do not endorse the dressing up of pets! (Rant pending…….please vacate the vicinity) 

Now I am not a lover of clothes for dogs! Not only is it silly and undignified (I know embarrassment is probably not a dog emotion) but it is also likely to end in the ripping up of said costume and a need to plug in the Hoover and reassess your life! Dogs do not need clothes people………..they are NOT dolls or even slightly fashion conscious!  They are dogs! Besides, how silly are you going to look walking down the road with a terrier in a Santa suit! Nuff said! 

Oh my! Anyway I am making an exception for this dog (he doesn’t seem that bothered….yet) and I decided to make a bauble for this challenge.  Extremely simple but I was a bit stumped with this one to tell you the truth.

Dies: Couture ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White - Kanban
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Ribbon – Stickles

So bauble don't dawdle (!) and jingle all the way over to the Cutie Pies blog to see all the wonderful projects created by the team.

Thanks so much for looking, and have a lovely day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx

  1. Hi Jane what a gorgeous bauble, love that die! My sister's dog, a Papillon, lost most of his hair so she had to put doggie clothes on him to keep him warm. Now our cat is pulling his hair out so we are thinking of getting a sweater in the hopes that it may stop him! Promise we won't put antlers on him lol!!! Hugs Susan x

  8. You.....stumped? Never!! It's a fabulous bauble in spite of the dog wearing antlers ( I can't lie, I'm not keen on dressed up animals either. That said, I did see a rather fetching pair of antlers for horses at my local tack shop...whatever next??). That frame is scrummy!! xx
