New Release Skinny Malinky's Part 2

OH MY WORD!! What a plonker or should I say Malteser (dark on the outside blonde inside) lol!!!! Just as well I'm the could have got ugly rofl. it is...what you've been holding your breath for (not tee hee).... heeeeerrrreeeeee'ssss 

Was she worth the wait??? I think so though will make sure I read my notes properly in future ;-D As always I coloured the printed image with my Copics. I haven't used my sewing machine in a while so dusted it off and stitched the image to orangey brown cs (note to self: when choosing cs for mounting make sure you have enough for the inside too :-S ) and the pp before sticking it to the card front. I printed the sentiment on the computer, cut it out my with Die-namics fishtail banner dies and fixed it to the image panel with brads. A bit of glitter and WOS and card was done phew!!!

oooh...dodgy colouring on Bruce the dog :-( I added clouds with a cloud cut out die, sponge and ink

Notice the different shade of orange on the inside doh!!

We were at a 18th birthday party at the weekend in Manly. It was a great night and there were a few sore heads in the morning except mine ;-D The only one that was bright as a button was Coen lol. I took this picture of him sitting unaided though Grandpa was beside him just in case ;-D

I know I'm biased but he's such a cutie :-D

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Gorgeous card, Kerry! Love the dsign and fab colour scheme (would never have noticed the 2 'oranges'!:) All the images are fabulous, but I have to say this one's my favourite apart from Kera - she is THE best! Any chance of creating one with a Great Dane instead of a St Bernard?!! :D

Fabulous card Kerry, love the background papers and a very Autumnal look to the card. Great image but I would never be able to colour the dog.

Very cute card! When I run out of the right color of CS, I use my alcohol markers to color a white piece to match--just around the outside where it will show.

The stitching on the card just adds that perfect finishing touch! Love, love, love the extra detail on the girls hat with the sparkles. Your colour choice is an exact match to the pattern paper. Thanks so much for joining us at Perfectly Rustics.
