Friends Fur-ever

Good morning friends.  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  Mine was pretty quiet but I have lots of DT cards due this week so that kept me pretty busy.  After having a couple of really nice, warm days last week, our temperatures dropped again and it was really cold this weekend.  Perfect weather for working on cards, right?

Since it's Monday that means there's a new challenge over at the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  Their challenge this week is friends.  Sadly, this is my last week as a guest designer with Pollycraft.  It has been so much fun designing with their adorable images and Paula, the owner, is a dream to work with.  So I just want to thank Paula and her amazing DT for letting me play along with them this month.  So, here's the card I made for this challenge:

I used Spring Things - Blossoming Friendship and colored with copics and colored pencils.  I added StarDust stickles to the flowers in the trees.  I used some Glossy Accents on the dog's eyes and nose, and the bird's beak and feet.  I love these bright cheery papers from Echo Park.  They make me think of spring ... which I hope will soon be here!

Please be sure to drop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to see what the talented DT girls have created this week.  I hope you find some time to play along in their challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
