I don't know if you can tell from the close up but these lovely little chaps are decoupaged. It was a little bit time consuming but so worth it in the end, especially as this was a special card for my dad!
My backing papers are the perfect match and are digital papers from NitWits, in what i would call muted autumnal colours.
Finally, I decided that the background behind the dogs was too white so I dulled it down with a touch of distress ink, and random dots using a Stamps by Judith stubby.
Hope you like my card for today.
Thanks for stoping by!

I have used this little cutie called Christmas Present, but I felt like this didn't have to be restricted to Christmas. so I used her to make a birthday card instead, using some lovely vintage tones.
I found the backing paper in a freebie pack from an old magazine, and I decided to use that as the basis for my colouring. Of course, there are fairy wings, so there HAD to be glitter , but for everything else I have kept it all fairly muted.
My lots of love die is an old favourite from Tattered Lace and my swirly sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, and i am glad to say I am no longer afraid to use this in a finished card due to the fabulous Misti tool!
So that's my card for today...stepping away from Christmas for just a little while.
Hope you like it and that you will come and join us on Colour Crazy.
Thanks for stopping by.

We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who have some of the cutest Christmas images so I chose this one which is called Nice Friends 2. And see the little guy with the Christmas hat on? He is a tiny little stamp from Gerda Steiner....I just thought he needed to be there!
I created the background with my distress ink pads - Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans, and coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs, before adding a finishing spritz of glitter........well you have to don't you??!!
Finally i have mounted the image on to some Red Mirri Card which comes in the Crafters Companion Luxury red cardstock pack. You will see this on a lot of my cards at the moment, as I think it gives the finished card a lovely little lift, that you can only get away with at Christmas.
So that's my card for today. I hope you will come and share your makes at Cute Card Thursday.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi there. We have new challenge over at Fab n Funky this week, and our theme is Fashion, sponsored by Lemon Shortbread.
I have decided to use this lovely little lady, called Heart Sunglasses, and coloured her in with my Spectrum Noirs.
I have gone for a very clean and simple card this time, using some old scraps of patterned paper that I found in my stash and a little bit of ribbon.
Thanks for visiting today, and don't forget to come and join us over at Fab n Funky.

I think there are about twelve all in all......I have them all, but didn't colour any for a while as I just couldn't decide which one to do first!
That makes me really happy as you end up with a really nice topper in half the time, and because you have coloured in the main image, it doesn't feel like you have 'cheated',
So this little lady ended up on a 7 x 7 card and I made the base paper using spectrum aquablends and glycerin, followed by a splattering of gold and pearl white paint. I was really happy with the final result. :-)
So that's my card for today. Hope you like it, and thanks for visiting!

I have chosen some very simple outline images from Digi Stamp Boutique for my card, and paper pieced the petals using some NitWits digital papers.
I look forward to seeing you over at Fab n Funky.

I've also added some faux stitching to bring the background together with the character.
This is a really unusual image for me, but I really enjoyed colouring her. I hope that you will come and join as at Colour Crazy and share your colourful creations too.
Bye for now.
