Sweet dreams

 Good morning, I'm fresh back from a lovely week in Dorset just in time for this week's challenge at Crafty Catz. We actually came home a day earlier than intended as Marvin was in the sea a lot and I think he has Limber tail-poor boy- he seems a lot more comfortable now but we wanted to be sure that we could get him to our own vet if need be... such a shame as he was having the best fun on the beach and playing in the waves- doggy heaven! I do enjoy going away and exploring some of our beautiful countryside and beaches but it's always great to be home and sleep in my own bed!

Anyway back to the challenge and the card... 

our sponsor this week is  Di's Digital Stamps

our optional theme is 'Cute Animals'.  I used a stamp from PInk Ink, coloured with Copic markers and added a little stencilling using a Lavinia stencil.

For more inspiration you can hop over to Crafty Catz to see some beautiful cards from my lovely teamies, remember our challenges are always 'anything goes' so hope to see you join in!

Thanks for visiting, I've loads of catching up to do- meant to schedule some DT stuff before I went away but ran out of time so I'll be back very soon! Will be round to visit your blogs as soon as I can.
