Be more Dog

Morning to all my dear blog followers.

Hope you had a great weekend and were able to enjoy 
your time. 

Here is my card for today

 Here is a scrap of paper that had the "left overs" from a pen that leaked - pink
and the paints from a brayer - can not bare to waste anything - I got in a 
terrible mess with the leaking pen had pink fingers for a couple of days! 
But I did make a fun background paper. :) 

Yellow, pink and green
just right 

Next was to use the IndioBlu Dog stamps
using black Archival inks and stamp the dogs and sentiment onto the card

Then to colour in the dogs using various pens and yes that one that leaked - pink !! 

Mounted onto black card onto a yellow hand made card blank

using up some stickers from my stash - 

I  put the bones, dog paws, and gold strips around the card

Added a ribbon bow from Crafty ribbons bag of bibs and bobs - black with pink dots. 

Think the sentiment is very good... 

I would like to enter it for the following 


It was very windy here in North Devon yesterday and cold so did not get out into the 
garden - which was a shame. But there is today. 

I am wanting to try some watercolour painting today just for 
something different, will show you how I get on over the next few days
if - a big if - it goes right. 

I wont stay long I need to phone up the Carer agency for Mum 
as she now - thank goodness- has decided that she needs someone 
long term and not going to try by herself. 

Such a worry ....

Well have a great day 

thank you for popping over and have a great day.

really appreciate all your comments and love

  1. What a fun card Pen! Love the background and those critters are adorable :) I confess to giggling about the pink fingers though, sorry.

    And good news that your Mum is happy to have carer help - it should make such a difference for her - as well as helping to ease things/worry for you.

    Thanks for coming to play this week!
