Does that hat make my hips look fat?

I must apologize that I'm not able to do my blog rounds much or even sometimes answer emails - my laptop died and I only get very little chance to sit at the upstairs computer! :( Santa might bring me a new one (Santa has nonchalantly asked what specs would one appreciate in a laptop) but before that my communications WILL be erratic at best.

Isn't that pooch just darling! I got that image at Mo's and made a card for my dog-crazy parents (not that I'm any better myself!)

This is also a design team card for Stampin' For the Weekend where the theme is simple - CHRISTMAS. There's a fab prize too and a bonus prize of 6-month design team spot so if you're in any way interested, head over. You have until Jan. 7th to enter.

I coloured this slightly cranky mutt with Copics and used the lush papers and borders from Girl's Paperie. And some buttons. And baker's twine...of course.

I used the whole range of warm grays for the mutt and R20-ies for the hat and ribbon. The shadows are done with cool grays.

I'd like to enter these challenges:
Card Patterns - the sketch
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Christmas
Double Dutch - Christmas
Crafty Ho's - Red and Green
Spoon Full Of Sugar - Christmas Card
Allsorts - last minute Christmas
Hanna and friends - Christmas

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
