Well today is my last week with Sketch Saturday...trust me to get a 5 week month lol. It's been a lot of fun and has stretched my sketch abilities enormously but I do I think I will try them more often :-D Thank you Jen for asking me to sponsor and to all the DT for the fabulicious makes using LCI images in the first week.
Of the 5 sketches I think I struggled the most with today's. Thursday night I really didn't like my card but after a good nights sleep and a bit of rearranging it's started to warm on me :-D I'm sure all you seasoned Sketcher's won't find it a problem at all!
My SIL in Ireland got a new 8 week old Cavalier King Charles black and tan puppy last week and as soon as Ruby and Rocky heard the news they commissioned me to make a card for the new addition though I really don't fancy a weeks supply of dog biscuits as payment lol!!
When my SIL told me her name I ROFL....are you ready for it....Grace Kelly!!! Isn't that fabulous...apparently it came from the Sex in the City movie where one of the girls called their dog Elizabeth Taylor :-D
Of course I had to use Buttercup In The Doghouse but I removed Buttercup's name and printed Grace Kelly instead... I surprise myself sometimes when one of my ideas actually work lol. Let me know what you think....
As always I colored the image with my Copics and added clouds with a PTI cloud diecut and chalk ink. I had used a plain pink panel and I think that's what was bugging me so I ran another piece of pink cs through my Cuttlebug with a tree bark embossing folder (I'd already stitched the plain pink panel to the card doh) and stuck on top and it definitely made it a bit more interesting.
Translation - Welcome to the family ;-D
