Madison ‘blings’ on the love

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Oddball Art as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Just look at the love going on between Madison N Toby by Oddball Art.They’ve been coloured up with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I die cut an 8 x 8 card blank to create the shape then covered and layered with these pretty papers.I finally managed to find my bow die that I’d been disappointed to have mislaid for so long.So it’s been put in it’s rightful place in my overflowing DJ CD flight case 🙂 I cut and added the strip to the right of the image to give the impression that it’s wrapped and tied.The sentiment has been die cut and matted onto a piece of paper to match the paper ribbon and blinged up all the way around.A large gem from the same set has been placed atop of the bow.I have so many gems…well all manner of embellishments,really…that I really need to make more use of them.Anyway this shall be another card for my DD2’s birthday in October.She loves our dog so much and our girl loves her right back.Actually she loves everybody – even complete strangers!If she can’t accost people in the street for a cuddle she lurks in the window to greet them with a smile and a wag of her tail.Yes,she does actually smile 🙂 Altho’ people who don’t know her find her quite scary.There are some folks I don’t explain her actions to i.e. double glazing and other salespeople that turn up uninvited on my doorstep!!I let them think she’s a ferocious beast – even tho’ she’s the daftest,softest,friendliest,most beautiful girl 😀

Here she is relaxing in her favourite seat in the house.It’s also my DH’s so they have to jostle for pole position.I bet you can tell who wins! :
