If you can't walk with them, think of them and craft!!!

Stamp- TGF Furever.
Papers- Affection Too from Nitwits.
Morning Peeps!!
I think I am just teetering on morning but if I don't waffle too much I might get it done before the clock ticks round to 12pm!!

So today I should be on my grumbly dogs walk with my little Poppy (who isn't grumbly at all but instead helps the other dogs to get over their black dog fear aggression worries!) and I am so sad I couldn't go because naughty hip is being an absolute toad :( so instead I got my crafty thing on thinking of all my gorgeous doggy peeps and their furbabies and made a card instead!!

The TGF Furever stamp set is just perfect for the job too!! I stamped the cute girl and her little dog up and coloured the with my promarkers and then added a few bones to the background with the mini bone stamp in the set, tooooo cute!!!

I cut them out with a lacey circle and added some raffia through the loops tying it in a pretty bow at the side.

Now to answer an email question I got last week....

how do I get my flowers to match in with the colours on my stamps?...

answer... I buy mostly white or cream flowers and then colour them in with my promarkers!! the flowers above are coloured with sunkissed pink and sandstone promarkers to match her skin and hair!!!

ok, I am going to rush off now. Mo is getting his hair cut soon and I need to get him some lunch before we go!! he has decided he would like a big boy haircut so we'll see what that means when we get there!! he he he!!!!

I am entering this cutie into the challenge over on the cupcake challenge blog which is Raining cats and dogs. and the Top Tip Tuesdays boys and girls come out to play challenge ( entry 2) with a top tip of my flower colouring!!

Thank you for popping in on me
