101 years old & Winnie Wanted A Westie

Just over a year ago mum asked me to make a 100 today birthday card for a dear friend, Winnie. I think I blogged about what was going on a hundred years ago last year, and, one year on, Winnie is 101 years young today! Of course, mum came round yesterday to see if I'd made her card and I said, "Ummm....isn't that next week?" Same story as last year. Last year I made a Forever Friends card (which won me my first two prizes!!) but this year mum had asked me to do a, 'not too fancy, simple card' but with a Westie dog on the front as Winnie used to have one many years ago called Sally. Easy. (Not)
Since my 'crooked' finger accident I've steered clear of 'real' drawings, and gone for cartoons, it doesn't matter too much if they go 'wonky'. They're supposed to be like that, right? I'm still doing a greyhound for Shell, but it keeps ending up with googley eyes, big feet and a rather long tongue! So, last night me and my crooked finger were determined to draw a little Westie and I think it's turned out not too bad. I'm quite pleased with it, and Sally will definitely be going into my Digi Store later today (soon as John gets home as he likes doing all that spiderwebby stuff)

I've used Pink Petticoat papers in duck egg blue on a pink pearl card, Martha Stewart punches (Woodware punches inside) and lots of Stickles glitter, oh and my new Distress Ink , tumble glass, for the shading behind Sally and edged the backing paper with it too.
The font is a freebie, mine is called Round Hand DB. I've found Signet Round Hand, which looks the same and you can download it HERE
Welcome (((wave)) and Hi!! to new follower Margreet who's also a new member of the OSAAT's Design Team! So pop over and see some of her lovely cards.
There is one thing wrong with Sally. Have you spotted it? The real Sally would've had a docked tail. Something that has happened in the last hundred and one years to add to the good list!

  2. Hi Lyn what a gorgeous card and your image is so cute, Im sure your elderly lady will love it. Docking tails is illegal these days so I think most little dogs have to keep their tails unless the vet things otherwise, we had Yorkies and theyve now got to keep their tails. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx
