Wendy + For June and Lou

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Hi everyone! I just wanted to apologise for not being around to your blogs much this week. I have been snowed under! Lots going on here but I don't want to bore you with the details :) I should be back to normal on the weekend xxx

Today there is a brand new challenge over on the Saturated Canary blog and it is 'All the B's'. So you can do whatever you like as long as it includes something starting with B!

For my card today I am dedicating it to two lovely ladies; June and Lou. Both of these sweeties are on the Saturated Canary design team with me and have both recently lost one of their fur babies :( I know what it is like to love your fur baby with all of your heart so I wanted to dedicate my card to them as a special remembrance.

The B's on my card are; Butterfly, Blue, Bow, Buttons; and I have used the gorgeous Wendy. Here are the colours that I used on her:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E41, E43, E47, E49
Outfit: B93, B95, B97, B99
Puppy: E31, E35, E37, E39
Puppy Bow: R81, R85, R59

I would love to see you playing along with this week's challenge and also if you could pop over to the lovely Lou and Junes' blogs to give them your well wishes xxx

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Crafty Ribbons - Vintage
Digi Doodle Shop - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - Sugar and Spice (It reminds me of the rhyme with 'snails and puppy dog tails ;)
Paper Crafting Journey - My Sentiment Exactly
Simply Create - Linky Party
