My Lovely Supporters

21 Apr 2022


 Good morning, today I have two cards to share with you the first one is my KERST/CHRISTMAS DT card for the FB April Challenge the theme is A/Goes with the option of using a rectangle or square card. This month we are sponsored by ALL DRESSED UP I have used one of the images that was supplied to the DT, this one is called  CHRISTMAS HUG
I have used a square 7 x7 Kraft card base the papers are from my stash I folded the front of the card then added the image and some punched snowflakes

My second card has the touch of Spring and cuteness about it I have used one of Di's new images called Puppy Pals available in Di's Digi Shop, my normal Graphit and Nuvo markers are running out so I am trying out some new ones I bought a while back, I purchased both Arteza and Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens so I am trying to get used to them, I have used my Nuvo and Graphit for so long and it is not easy getting used to other types.
For this image I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens, the papers are a mix from my stash I added a double organza bow some flower pearls and a butterfly. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

It is weird but since my mum passed my beautiful doggie Jess does not seem to want to go out for walks, she really wants to but as soon as I get her out through the gate she just turns back to go in again, I just wondered if she was missing my mum as well.

Such stunners as always, Lorraine! Dogs are super sensitive so Jess will defiantly be missing someone so special to you both. Hugs xx

Both cards are just beautiful Lorraine with fabulous colouring and gorgeous papers and design..poor little Jess, she could be picking up a few vibes from you too, so make a fun voice walking out the gate and she may go..good luck.

Beautiful cards lorraine, lovely designs and paper choices on both of them. Two adoirable images and fabulous colouring- looks as if you're getting to grips with those new pens already.
Who knows what goes through the mind of a dog- sometimes I think they know more than we do. Hope she soon starts enjoying her walks again.

Dogs are very perceptive Lorraine and I am sure Jess senses things are different, those of us who have and love dogs understand just how sensitive they can be.

Bot your card are lovely, perfectly coloured as always but as you might guess I might lean towards the second as my favourite.

Two really cute and gorgeous creations Lorraine, glad to see you crafting again sweetie. Yes animals do sense things so it might very well be that Jess is missing your lovely Mum as well.

Both of these cards are just as sweet as can be Lorraine! I adore that ADU image with the little fawn she's holding and your design is perfect! Your sweet pup image is beautifully colored and a lovely Spring design!

I think that surely Jess is missing your Mum, and she already waits for her. Pets are very sensitive and faithful...
Two fabulous images and designs, great colouring as always and beautiful papers!
I use Graphit markers too and yes, it's difficult use markers different by our habits!

These are both gorgeous Lorraine - great images, fab colouring and beautiful layouts. The second is my favourite .. the way you have coloured the puppy just pops !! It’s quite possible Jess is also missing your mum is she knew her well … dogs can be very sensitive ❤️

Lynne in NI said...

Aww poor wee Jess, I'm sure she is missing your mum, and probably picking up on your sadness too. Hope she comes round for you, it's so upsetting when our pets aren't their usual happy selves X
