Crafty Catz Challenge #550 DT card

 Good morning- I'm a little late today- life gets in the way sometimes and the best-laid-plans go to pot! 

This week's challenge at Crafty Catz , hosted by our lovely Billie A is sponsored by 

All Dressed Up Stamps

The optional theme this week is 
Flowers/twine/ gems

The DT were given some adorable images to play with- I chose to use Country Girl. She's coloured with Copic Markers and I added some dots to her jumpsuit with a whit gel pen. I kept to a simple matted layout and  added a die cut frame, and die cut flowers, which I have again coloured with Copics, tiny pearls added to the centres.

As always there is plenty to see over at Crafty Catz, my lovely teamies have produced some gorgeous cards this week.
Our DT call is still ongoing so please check out the details while you are there.

I have a couple of  photos of Marvin to share today- he's growing SO fast, getting quite gangly with those long legs! He's outgrown his puppy basket- amazingly it's still in one piece -I thought he would have eaten before he grew out of it! I don't think he'll be in his first crate much longer either...
He's such a lovely boy (most of the time), full of fun and mischief but so sweet natured and friendly.

Thanks for visiting

Adorably designed card with brilliant colours. xx
Marvin, oh my gosh, he is a double of Bella just a tad older...she has long dangly legs too and runs so fast gosh. Guess his teeth are razor sharp too. Bella starts puppy school on the 15 and this continues into three different stages, so it will be good as they sure keep us busy...s
