Arffy Burfday Sue From The 'Boys'

Hellloo yoou guuuys! (sung in true Goonie style) I've been dog sitting! (ah, is that where you've been, Lyn in the dog house..?) better known by their owners as, 'The Boys!' And this week, or rather last week, it was the doggie's mum's birthday, so seeing their 'dad' had a doggie card last month I thought it would be nice to do a matching pair, same but different, just like the dogs, same...but different.
So here it is.
First picture of the year taken out side in the sunshine... about 9 0'clock this morning. I've used, a blank pearl card, edged with an Azure blue Promarker. (Love that colour) Digi image by Dustin Pike of course, freebie found here. (leave some love)
The Papers were made by me using four different Promarker colours. Azure, Poppy, Grass, Tulip Yellow (I've scanned it in, so will add it as a freebie below this post, it might come in handy..or just do your own, it's easy!) one doggie brad, and the border down the side punched with a paw print punch by Woodware, a bit of black card and loads of photo and gel glue... and I take it back what I said last week, I CAN'T get that glue into the syringe! (and I was doing sooo well too!) Squirted all over the place so, I now have (Doone, of many talents) ) two pairs of very sticky stuck up scissors! (Not that they're snobby or anything...just stuck up)
There's about seven layers to this card in all. The image I played with in My Craft Studio. The freebie version I received from a Crafty Magazine Crafts Beautiful ? ages and ages ago, just very basic, but plenty for my small brain to cope with! Then, once I put the dogs together in the way I wanted them, I printed them out quite a few times, so they'd all be the same size to decoupage, then coloured them in. I've added about four layers of 'dog'. I have also edged with TH ink, but it doesn't show.
No fonts used this time, just my own hand writing, the untidiness I can say, I was writing for the dogs! (personally I think they'd do better)
The Digi images (joined) on the inside where 'stretched' a little bit, as I was going to make a tent style card (opening from the bottom outwards) but changed my mind, mainly because cards that open from the bottom quite often slip open and fall flat with the weight of the image on the front.
Here's the card I made before, just in case you missed it! (My hidden freebie is still there too and a link to the papers I used) Papers I used for this card are HERE

    1. Thank you Sarah, yep, been in the garden all day!
      I could never quite make crochet look nice, it was always too holey!

  4. Cute, cute, cute. Your doggies look quite happy.

    Speaking of which, we now have a third addition to our clan. A tiny puppy found its way to our doorstep, quite soaked (from sprinklers...not rain),and very frightened,not to mention hungry.

    We think someone abandon it in our neighborhood. Which is a miracle in itself since we have coyotes who roam about, looking for pets to eat.

    We're trying to think positive and will be able to find the puppy a good home.

    1. aw, you'll have to keep him! He chose you!!
      Our lodger cat always turns up when he needs de-fleaing, food, and a dry place to kip!

  5. This is just awesome is your cool digi papers! Sure to bring a smile!
