Too Dog Gone Cute

Meet Kiki.  Isn't she the cutest thing?  She is a freebie over at Tiddlyinks. It tried to color this like my Bonnie, but she has so much white in her I didn't succeed.  Think I will get some new Copic colors and I will try it again.  I am going to enter this in the Copic Creations challenge this week.  We are supposed to chose our favorite technique.  I used the flick or feathering technique.  I am trying to learn how to color fur and this is my first attempt.  It was quite fun.  My DH and son liked it so I guess it is ok.  I can't say I am totally pleased, but I guess it is ok for the first attempt. 

My sentiment was from TLC and the sentiment I used on the back of the Easel is from TLC too.  It says, "When someone is having a bad day... Be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently."  I know that ALWAYS works with my Bonnie.  Dogs are truly God's gift for humans.  Paulette has some of the very best sentiments out there and she offers so many freebies.  This was a set of 6 sentiments that I bought for only $2.50.

The third challenge I am entering this one in is Sentimental Sundays.  They ask you to create a card around a sentiment and this week use water in your card.  If you look real close you will see my "water".  I used Crackle Accents to achieve the wet puddle look.

Just found a new challenge I am entering this in, Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge.  I was looking at a beautiful card by the very talented Sue Drees and found this appropriately titled challenge.  Treat yourself and check out Sue's Blog.  Her work is fantastic.
