Sarah Kay & ABC Challenges and puppies!

Have you seen the gorgeous sketch that Katharina has done for this weeks ABC challenge? I just love her sketches so had to do a card using it.

I've used a Sugar Nellies stamp - Swet 'n Sassy from The Hobby House which I have coloured with distress inks/H2O's. The papers are Daisy D's also from The Hobby House.

The flowers are Prima, but I've also punched some out using the DP's with Woodware, EK Success and Martha Stewart punches. The brads, spacers, zoomz and charms are from my stash.

o-o-o-O-o-o-o

The Sarah Kay challenge this week is a sketch. I couldn't follow the sketch exactly without the card looking off balance, so I've deviated a little and added a border of scallops down the left hand side of the card. It doesn't look lop-sided now even if it's not strictly to the sketch.

I've coloured Rosalie's Bicycle with distress inks/H2O's (what else lol) and have used those gorgeous Heidi Grace papers from The Hobby House again - I only have one tiny scrap left to stroke now!!!
The flowers are a combo of punched (EK Success retro flower), Michaels wedding confetti (thanks Sally) and Flora Doodles from Joanna Sheen. Brads and spacers are from my stash.

o-o-o-O-o-o-o

Odie and Oliver are 4 weeks old tomorrow and when I saw how Odie had propped himself up in the corner I had to take a photo (apologies for the graininess - I took it last night and didn't want to use the flash). They are starting to toddle about now and play and had their first solid meal last night - grub everywhere but they loved it. They are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels - I've added a picture of my babies underneath this one, their mam is 3rd from the left



Thanks for looking,

  23. Oh dear Bev, what a pickle, cards or puppies...... sorry, PUPPIES!!!! They're so gorgeous! I must have missed when they were born, they are the cutest of the cute and their mum looks so beautiful too. I don't know how you manage seven of them but they're all fabulous. I hope you post some more pics of them soon. Of course I have to comment on your amazing cards both of which get huge sighs from me. The first one is in colours I just love together and has a great oriental feel and the beautiful Rosalie is always a winner with me. I love them both. Chris xxx
