Spots and Stripes is the theme this week at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best .Why not pop along and play?You could win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop or even join us as a GDT!Don’t forget to take a look at the beautiful DT creations too!

I’ve used the adorable Tug of War on my card.Just look what they’re doing to that sock!!You can find some more whimsical images like this at Digi Doodle Shop too.  They’ve been coloured with Promarkers.I dipped into my precious Persimmon papers again – eeek!Still,I’m a mission this year to try my best to use my heaps of crafty stuff up.I mean what’s the point in gathering all this just to sit and admire it?Er… best be careful or I may talk myself out of it. Actually the plan is to save money so I can indulge in more major purchases like Grand Nestabilities.And so far it’s worked!Back to the card.Just love this blue and terracotta colour scheme.I kept the layout simple and just used corner rounder punches and ribbon to add some interest.I also filled the gap on the top left of the image by placing this rather apt stamped sentiment there.

I’ve actually made this with DS1 in mind.He really wants a puppy.I think it would be good for him as when he was younger he was petrified of dogs and now is just warming to them.But DH says NO!He and I had a close encounter of the canine kind a couple of weeks ago.We were walking to school down a lane,well it’s more of a muddy farmer’s track,and in one of the gardens that backs onto this some Collies had whipped theirselves up into a frenzy over a passing dog.One of them was leaping pretty high up the fence and I remarked “He’ll be over there in a minute.”Well I dropped my other two off at school and DS1,who happened to be poorly came back with me.Just as we approached that garden the dog jumped over the fence.He was just about to take himself for a walk in the adjacent park but when I gingerly went up to him he promptly sat on his bottom.Luckily he was as soft as anything and DS enjoyed stroking him.Fortunately he had a tag and we were able to return him to his owner safely – much to DS 1’s disapointment.He was hoping to keep him!Mind you so was I!!

    When we took the plunge and got a dog it was purely by accident, but my son and that dog are inseparable. If my boy is outside without the dog, the dog is whiny and agitated the entire time! It would be great for him when it does happen for you all! Thanks for playing with Card Makin Mamas!
