Dogs ... just for you

This card is for the recipe 15 on Crafts 4 eternity, which includes this sketch:

We were also asked to include a dog or dogs and a check pattern.

I couldn't resist the opportunity to use my labrador stamp, coloured with copics.

I'm still trying to stick to one of my crafting resolutions and use up some of my offcuts, so that's what I did for this card, using some 'dogs' paper from PDA, some dogtooth check paper (lol - how appropriate - 'dog'tooth) and other paper, both of which are BG and a few other bits and pieces from my general stash.
These colours remind me of hot chocolate, which is the topic for Quixotic 8 and also Simon says challenge this week; also for Divine diva inspiration 19.

No crafting yet, but some bargain goodies

I haven't done any crafting to show yet today, but I have got some crafting goodies to show. When the postie came this morning he brought me the goodies that I'd ordered Sunday evening from Paper n Lace - they have a sale on atm - plenty more craft goodies to drool over.

I admit that I've quite often in the past thought of getting the large roses stamp - and now the price was better so that it didn't seem so extravagant. And, of course, I couldn't resist a couple of BG pads (although I have to amit to already having about 30) - and the 7 gypsies papers are lovely - in fact I hope to use some of it soon to make something for the DCM 'garnet' challenge.

I've just come back to edit this post to add that I also got these from P n L (how could I have missed them from the original picture?):

QVC also had a craft clearance last week and I weakened and ordered this Christmas set - it will be ideal for some of those quicker cards to make for when I have a Tearfund sale.
