I  Can not believe where this year is going, middle of May alread, I have just celebrated my 47 th Wedding Anniversary, when I told my dad I was planning on getting married at the age of 19 he hit the roof and threatened to bang mine and my future husbands head together haha,  and said it wouldn't last 5 minutes,I was the last one of 4 to leave home the baby!!! But I did understand how he felt, oh I wish he could see us now god bless him...   Today we have a new Challenge for you at Sparkles Monthly chosen by Jackie, who would like to see (4 or more legs).   please  do pop on over to the challenge and I am sure you will find some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT .. I had been looking through some digi image's that I have had for a while and came across this cute little fellow and thought he would be perfect for my DT  card, so I coloured him with graphit marker pens, the sentiment stamp is a freebie ,design papers are from my scrap box, I mounted my image onto a spellbinders die, and used some peel offs on the corners, the ribbon is from my box of scrap bits .

especially for you

Yesterday I was watching a video on how to use masking liquid, then I saw a beautiful card on Facebook made in the same way, so then I was inspired to have a go, I stamped this image from a set of Penny Black stamps called efflorescence twice,  then painted it with masking liquid I waited for it to dry before I coloured it all over using memento ink pads, New Sprout n Pear Tart, then I removed the masking liquid just by rubbing over the stamped image with my finger , the sentiment is from Woodware. i was really pleased with the end result.. you can colour the image or just leave it like I have..
