Colour Inspiration

This weeks challenge over at Karen's Doodles UK challenge blog is to use this picture for inspiration. All you need is a Karen's Doodles digi image to enter .
 I've used Karen's Doodles Princess Kitty for this card  ( what a gorgeous madam! ) , the flower stem is prima, punched some flowers, coloured with copics and glittered the crown with stickles though you can't really see in this photo.

I'm entering this in a some challenges too.
Pile it on  - animalriffic
Secret Crafter- pink & green & flowers 
Stamptacular Sunday- flowers & spring colours 

I'm covered in bruises  ( not much unusual about that really, I keep falling over things) after taking Brodie to Agility training. He is so enthusiastic, he keeps leaping on me as he's flying over the jumps! His feet are like dinner plates!  Boy does he love it though!

Whimsy Lion

Have had this beastie for a while and only just inked him up. He is a Whimsy Stamp and I thought he was just so handsome!
 The card is for the I heart copics challenge on PCP. There is a sketch by Jana to follow for this challenge.
 Work this morning...ughhhh!  Think I might like to retire ..I wish!

Turtle Express

This image is another Karen's Doodle  digi, they're all so cute!  I've coloured my turtle with copics ( what else!) .
Tracy is guest designer over at Doodle Palace this week and she has given us a sketch which I've used for this card.  The papers are BG Origins , flowers & leaves are Prima.  The buttons are random from my stash, and the sentiment is SU. I'm entering this in Doodle Palace and  Twisted Thursday which is buttons.

And Brodie sends everyone a smile for the day! I've flipped him over so you can better appreciate his toothiness . Isn't he so sweet! LOL!

Well, we've been there, done that!  Gav likes to visit out of the way places, so we went to some very isolated places around the Kaipara Harbour, Hokianga Harbour,  up to Spirits Bay near Cape Reinga ( tho not to the Cape itself...too many people!) . We must get a better map tho, his motorbike atlas is wrong about a lot of things!!!!!!!!
 The Doggies were very pleased to see us. Poor Brodie got stuck in jail ( kennels) , and I think he thought this was another new home ( we've only had him 3 months!) and it was a bit sucky, being stuck in a run with barking dogs around him. Apparently he barked...a  LOT!!!!  Abbie & Riley mooched around at a friends and Vinnie came with us cos I wouldn't want to inflict his pining and whining on anyone! LOL! He met two very fat dacshunds, 2 chubby schnauzers and a couple of terriers in places we were staying. People kept saying what a pretty girl he was. He HAS A MOUSTACHE PEOPLE!!!!!

  I've coloured bunny girl with copics and added glossy accents to her eyes and eggs. I hand - cut some eggs for embellies as you can probably tell laughing now!  The sentiment is computer generated by me!

Found another great digi artist over at Papercraft planet - Meljens designs. This is the first cutie I've coloured, and used some of my Kaisercraft Devonshire papers. The embellies all come from the same range, except the heart which is a MS punch I borrowed from Tracy. Ta Trace! I had plans on colouring all day, but the lure of cupcakes and coffee dragged me around to Tracy's and then we went to the movies to see Alice in Wonderland. Pretty cool!
  Thought I'd enter this in the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge- anything goes! Well, that's easy!

Sweet Pea

I ordered these stamps a while ago but they never arrived and the lovely Lynette at Sweet Pea Stamps re-pressed and re-sent them to me . Thank you so much!
 Here is my first sweetpea card for the challenge which is to scream spring,  use yellow, green & pink , and use flowers. Think I got that covered!  The image is a ching-chou kuik , so much fun to colour! Flowers are prima, paper is K & Co Wild Raspberry.

Poor Teddy

Yes, my clothesline looks like this sometimes....with dog teddies!  Though I must admit there aren't many looking too good these days, Brodie has gutted most of them. Poor Riley loves his Teddies...most of them are roadkill now and none seem to have any ears left :(
 This cute image is a Sassy Cheryl , she has a great group over on PaperCraft Planet and this was a freebie for members of the group.  I have made this card for challenge number two over at Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog , following a great sketch from Tracy. The paper is KaiserCraft Rewind.

Home again

It was a big weekend at a Dog Training Seminar for Brodie & I and it turns out he's not really a delinquent!  In fact he is apparently  " an AWESOME dog" !!!! Lots of hints from this couple who live, breathe, train and compete with 10 dogs!  
Had a class with Tracy on Saturday night, fairly quiet so had time to play at colouring some digis.  This image is  a Sassy Cheryl and the card is for several challenges;
  Quixotic Challenge: Use leaves
  A Spoonful of Sugar: use beads
  Dare U 2 Digi: use pearls and a digi image
I've used Kaisercraft paper, prima flowers and coloured my sassy with copics.

Sassy Challenge

Finally the first challenge for Sassy Cheryl is up and running and we have to use green!  Tried a different shade of green than usual...hmmmm....not sure but might be a bit dark. The paper is prima , Trace gave it to me eons ago.  Isn't this image so sassy?
I've been busy buying so many images lately but haven't got around to doing anything with them! Hopefully that'll change over the next few days, no work again till Tuesday. Yahoo!!
 We're having a training seminar at dog obedience this weekend and I have been asked to bring Brodie. I think he's supposed to be the example of a delinquent adolescent for the training gurus to tame! Tee hee...poor Brodiebum just gets so excited with all those other doggies around!  At the moment he's squished into a little poodle bed again.

Just found out last night that I made the DT for Karen's Doodles UK!  Did NOT expect that!   This is a massive undertaking with challenge blogs starting at the same time in other countries ( Congrats Trace!) and I can't wait to get started.  Karen has some really cute digi images which can be found on her blog here.  Have just been wandering around my fellow DT members blogs, a bunch of very talented ladies!
