The Glam Dog Walker~

Hello Me Again~

What a lovely day again here weather wise, hope it lasts, love to see the garden coming out slowly with colour, it's nice not to be popping on a fleece every five minutes!

I had a little play this afternoon after I had done my jobs this morning, and I came up with this card for the challenge at The Pixie Cottage. As well as the sketch, as an optional extra they asked for paper piecing, I found this image a bit too "thin" to PP, so sorry I did not do that, even tho' it's one of my favorite things to do!

I have had this image a few weeks now, saw it on someones blog and thought "Oh I like that", then at Harrogate Craft Show there it was, I have been dying to use it, isn't she glamorous? It is made by Stampavie "The Vintage Chic Collection" and is one of Sarah k's.
At first I was going to leave it without any colour, wish I had now, it did look nice, but ended up using very muted pale pinks...
These lovely dark papers are from MME Stella Rose, Hattie collection. The sentiment is craftwork cards, flowers and Pearls are Hobbyhouse.

I would like to enter this card into:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge--Animals/Pets

Hi Debbie, she is gorgeous, I love this card, it's so pretty & great layout. I love the garden too, but unfortunitly Fletch runs from corner to corner ~ bird watching, and slowly he has flattened it. Need to get some strong shrubs to fin in all the flat spaces ~ I still love him though lol
