Poorly pup

This is a last-minute entry for Glitter geeks week 9: furry and feathery friends, using the sketch for Crafts 4 eternity 31:

The 'poorly pup' image is one of Di's Digis that I won for a recent challenge on Paper Crafting Journey, coloured with copics.

I have been so privileged to win ten of Di's Digis in the past week or so - 5 for winning the PCJ challenge and 5 for winning a challenge on Divas by design. I also have some great news to share regarding sponsorship of my Craftyhazelnut Christmas Challenge blog - more about that later.

This card was a good way of using up scraps, something I try to do, but the box always seems just as full!

This is also for:

Dutch dare 124: for the kids - suitable for a 'get well' for a child
Top tip Tuesday 46: straight edges
Simply create 49: favourite animal
iCopic lover 42: fur challenge
KB cute Monday 24: anything goes using a digi
AiFactory: August anything goes

Update: Thanks to a blogging friend, Elizabeth - she is a fab supporter of my CHNC blog - I've found Jules 'Always with a heart' blog and her 'snippets' challenges. I'm always looking for opportunities to use up the scraps - so why is it that the box seems more full day by day? So I'm linking this to Jules Crafty Snippet challenge 31, because all of the pieces of design paper were from my offcuts box.


  1. Hi Hazel, love this image - it's a real beauty - and the papers are great too, especially the tartan :) Elizabeth x

  2. Oh Geeze Hazel what an adorable card! Nice use of your scraps and wonderfully co ordinated!

  3. Hi Hazel

    Awww... he really is one poorly pup. He doesn't look well at all!!

    Great use of the sketch and fabby papers and colours.

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.

    Yes my Sunday snippet challenge was set up as a personal challenge of my own where I only allowed myself to use snippets on a Sunday .. .. but it seems to have taken off and lots of people are joining in .. .. there are never any prizes .. .. just a reduction in peoples snippet mountains and a bit of fun. As more people started to join in I added Mr Linky so that I didn't miss seeing what people had made.

    Hope this helps.

    Love Jules xx
