A Little Puppy Love

I've just got back from Chicken and cat sitting again...and if I hadn't watched 'The Private Life of Chickens' the other night, I'd be very worried indeed about Sidney, and the umm, extra 'bits' she appears to have grown! But the story about Sidney can wait for another day...when I've got pictures!
Thought I'd make a quick card with one of my own little digi's for a change. I chose this little puppy dog, seeing he appears to be (so far) the favourite! He started life off carrying a slipper and then a chewed newspaper, but I swapped those for a birthday card. Of course this card didn't start off looking like it does now either. It started off with flowery paper, loads more flowers, some ribbons, glitter and a charm. But, well... they just didn't look right, not for a dog!
The paw print papers are a freebie from Pixie Paw Print Papers. Link on my side bar. The dog collar and 'woof' disc are also freebies from Canon Creative Park HERE you'll find other papers there too. here
The font is also a freebie, already mentioned in posts below and on side bar. (Oh!! tell us Lyn, you know how lazy we are!!) Pea's Lesley's Happy Font, download it for free HERE
The acetate was cut out from a huge Easter egg box, which I saved just for this very moment. Sorry, I ate the chocolate egg some months ago. (And very nice it was too!)
I've still got the flowery version of this card (and with an acetate window) I'll probably stick a Tilda on it later and post it tomorrow, when I come back from another bout of cat and chicken sitting!!
The paper you can see through the acetate window is a Christmas Pink Petticoat one, but i don't think that matters!
No D.T. cards this weekend as it's the B Teams turn. If you want to know what the next challenge is over on One Stitch At A Time, you'll jolly well have to pop over and have a look.....oh...I'll tell you, it's Use Your Digi's!!! (and I did!)

  17. Hi Spyder! thanks for your comments on my blog. Don't know what's up with the follower thing. Keep trying, I would love to have you! I just joined two of your blogs.
    I was reading your profile. My daughter is dyslexic/dysgraphic as well. And my mum loves spiders!! LOL My husband is British, so we have some things in common. :-) I love your digis. How cool that you make them yourself! I've always loved to draw but have been absolute rubbish at "cartoon-type" pictures. My mind doesn't seem to go there. I keep hoping that if I color enough of them it might. Here's hoping!

  18. Absolutely adorable! I think I need to have that cute dog.

  19. FAB card - the dog collar is so clever as are you to draw the dog.
