Wags and Whiskers meets Friday Sketchers :-)

last week was my lucky week :-) I won 2 challenges !! The Friday Sketchers Challenge and the Wags and Whiskers Challenge !! Fabulous eh !! :-) It is not very often I win anything and to have 2 so close together is lovely :-) Thank You :-)

So for this card I followed Jeanette's fabulous sketch on The Friday Sketchers Challenge :-) I used a Wags and Whiskers stamp that I won on their first launch and blog hop :-) the theme this week on the Wags and Whiskers Challenge is Blue, White and Brown :-)

I coloured the Angel Whispers stamp with copics and the little dog , Princess ,, with prima pencils ,, I like the more furry texture you can get with them :-) I paper pieced the dress and just coloured to spots in :-) The papers are a download from Digiscraps 3 ,, I love this paper ,, you can resize it to make it fiT your card perfectly :-) I inked around the image with faded jeans distress ink, I used some blue sheer ribbon and make a double bow with my bow easy ,,, marvelous invention that is !! :-) The lovely pearls and the angel charm are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts :-)

On the Wags and Whiskers Challenge challenge they are asking for cards to be made and sent to a little boy with a terminal brain tumour. Unfortunately I didn't have any boy Wags and Whiskers stamps so I will make another one later today. We do need to think about sick children and their families and send cards through Post Pals or Make a Child Smile too :-)

I am also entering this into the Totally Gorjuss Challenge whose theme is Paper Piecing

The Quixotic Challenge whose theme is Flutter By

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments :-)

Sketch and Stash Challenge Sponsored By Simon Says Stamp !! :-)


This week on the Sketch and Stash Challenge we are being sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp ,, so head on over to the Sketch and Stash Challenge blog to see what you could win !!! :-) I am not going to tell you ,, you have to go and see for yourself and while you're there see all the fabulous creations our GD and the DT have made for your inspiration :)

Becky has made this gorgeous sketch for us to use ,, I love this one :-)

and here's the card I made with it :-) I used my old and neglected Penny Black Stamp , this one is called Good Boy (though if you look on the PB site it says Goody Boy ??) anyway ,, I used to use this stamp alot and then he was just left on the shelf for months ,,, so it was about time I dusted him off and gave him a good inking :-)

I thought I would have a change from copics ,, and used my fairly neglected Prisma pencils instead :-) The papers are a new download from Digiscrap 3,, lovely eh ! these are called K9 Pals :-) i used some lovely velvet paw print ribbon from Meiflower the flower is Prima and the charm is from my stash. The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set :-)

I would have entered this into the Totally Papercrafts Challenge whose theme is 'Friends' ,,, but I am not allowed ,,, shame ,, cos there is a lovely prize from Simon Says Stamp and a blog hop too with lots of fab prizes from all the DT ( including me !! ) :-)

I can enter the Penny Black Saturday Challenge tho :-) Their theme is 'Someone Special' ,, Friends are very special :-)
AND as luck would have it the Cupcake Crafts Challenge whose theme is Four Legged and Furry :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
