Two Dogs, One Little girl and a lot of prizes

Firstly Sorry.  I have not been around much lately.  Life just seems to have got in the way.  I have still found time to craft, although not as much as I would like.

I have had a couple of birthdays for friends recently and one lady in particular loves dogs.  So I made these two cards for her.  Both images are from Mo Manning.  I adore them and think they are just the sweetest.  I have used this card as my DT card for the Cutie Pies challenge this fornight.  (More about that later).

The papers are from Kanban and edged with Tim Holtz Distress inks and the punch is a martha stewart one.  The gorgeous butterfly was cut from the papers with a Nestie and then layered to create the 3d effect.  The ribbon is from the States (courtesy of my friend Teresa) and the sentiment is from Tulip.  I coloured the gorgeous image with promarkers.

This gorgeous chap is also from Mo Manning and he is just too cute be too much trouble.  I coloured him using promarkers and then distressed using Tim Holtz distress inks.  He was cut out using Nesties and layered.  I have used a combination of Kanban and Papermania papers, combined with coredinations paper which was embossed using a Tim Holtz Embossing folder and then sanded.  The sentiment is Penny Black and the ribbon and flowers are from my craft box.

Hope you like them both.
