Happy Boxing Day


Hello everyone...........I wont shout too loud incase some of you are maybe hung-over or have bad heads from all the festivities ;0) Me & my family dont drink.........well we are mad & stupid anyway.......imagine if we drank!!! Wow I dont think the world could cope with that lol.

Ok so my card for you today I made for a friend, I brought the image as soon as I saw it released as I knew this image had to be used for her. However I was soooooooo nervous about it colouring it in, I've never coloured one of these before...........
........it turned out not too bad for a first go though ;0)  I have used 'Lhasa Apso With Santa Hat' by Mo Manning.

Papers are scraps from 12x12, I think they are Paislee christmas ones.

I coloured these cute doggy in copics & a tiny bit of prisma pencil in area's. I've also added glitter to his hat.

Ribbon, lace & doily are from my stash. I've added 'Holly' & flowers from WOC, I've stickled the flowers.for some bling, well this lady lurves her bling ;0) 

Added a Joy Crafts corner & inked it with.......would you believe I cant remember what I inked the corner with.....oops! I'ved used spellbinders die for the matting behind the image.

Well I hope you are all still having a joyous time with your families we certainly are. Will be round as soon as I can my lovelies, please dont feel as though you need to comment peeps, seriously families are much more important this time of year........well all of the time but this time of year even more I mean lol.

We are at my sons all day today but I will get come round to visit you all tonight :0)

Mmwah big squishy hugs, loves & kisses to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
