Suzie's 365 day 69: fuzzy

It's been a difficult day, so no crafting to show (just managed to prepare my card ready for my Christmas challenge tomorrow, but that's all), and I'm very late in the day with a photo for Suzie's day 69: fuzzy.

It's a picture of Ellie who came to stay with me October 2008 after I'd won her in a Think Pink auction. She was made by Kaz.

I'm so tired that I have to admit that I've resorted to showing a photo that I'd already got (if I'm feeling like it I'll take an up to date one tomorrow - although Ellie isn't going to look any different - lol!).

Woof, woof

Yesterday I had the privilege of being a guest designer on For Fun where this week's challenge is 'woof woof meow!' I chose a cat theme for my card (you can see it here), but I thought I would now join in the challenge with a dog theme, so I've used my inkadinkado golden retriever stamp inked with memento cocoa bean and coloured with copics.

The sketch is for Sketches by Carly 51:

Colours are for this week's Daring cardmakers challenge where this inspiration picture was given:

This colour combo is quite unusual, but I love it. I used V & A linen effect papers on a lemon card blank (although it doesn't look lemon here), the blue paper is an old piece of K & Co and the image was stamped on an offcut of lemon textured card. This is another for Pixie's crafty snippets 10. The animal print ribbon has been in my stash for ages; the button is a die cut one that I cut with an Ellison thin cuts die, coloured with a copic marker.
