Hi all I have managed to catch up on some commenting and have taken a few photos of Jess and Eddie.  I am so overwhelmed by your kindness and your best wishes for Eddie, things are getting a little better each day, I will try and write more detail a little later, I thank you all so very much.

My card was made for a certain challenge but did not get posted so I have saved it for now, I thought it was to lovely not to show you all.
I have used an image from FITZTOWN called WINTER 8,  I have coloured her with graph it markers and copics for the skin tones.  The papers are LOTV and the sentiment is Kanban, I think.  The image and papers have all been mounted onto black card stock.
I found out recently that the dotty effect that I use for the fur has a name it is called Pointillism, when I received one of the weekly tutorials from Splitcoast Stampers it was featured on there, and there was me thinking that i had come up with a new colouring invention, lol. I also saw it demonstrated on Create and Craft when they launched the newest marker on the market Chameleon Markers, they looked nice but gosh a little pricey for me I'm afraid, besides I love what I have.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Now onto my pictures of the doggies, meet Eddie a 3 year old Maltese Terrier, he is much smaller than Jess and so lovable, until 3 weeks ago he had never been taken out for walk or had a lead put on him and never been socialised with people but he is the friendliest dog you could wish to meet. 
here is both Jess and Eddie having a good ole sniff around the garden. 
I will be showing some more photos as time goes on, Eddie had had a haircut as when he was first taken in by the rescue home his hair was matted, it is not the best of haircuts, lol, but I am planning on taking him to the groomers for a nice bath and proper hairdo, 

This is what a Maltese Terrier looks like with a full coat of hair, they have no undercoat so do not molt but can catch colds so when I take Eddie out he has a little coat on him
Eddie will not be looking like the one above but may look like this, as time goes on
Many thanks for visiting I will see you soon but it may be spasmodic for the next week or two.

Hi Lorraine what a gorgeous card, beautifully coloured. Ahhh Eddie looks gorgeous and such a shame that he has never been walked or loved you just wonder what's up with some people. I can't believe he's the same breed as that dog in the picture!! I think his hair will look much better like the second picture!! Have fun, Susan x

Such a lovely card creation sweetie. Eddie looks cute even with his haircut. Not sure a little boy should have the full coat version, it looks a bit girlish. Lol!!! So glad things are going okay for the two of them. Wait for the next instalments.

Oh and such precious pics of dogs, adorable !

cotnob said...

I'm so pleased that Eddie has settled in well Lorraine, he and Jess look like they are having fun exploring the garden together.
Your card is beautiful and I love the way you have coloured the fur - I've not heard of 'Pointillism', I don't watch Create and Craft any more because I always end up spending so much!
