So after you read about my card, hop over to Crafty Catz challenge and join us in the fun! the rest of the DT have made stunning card for your inspiration.

and this is my DT card for this week's challenge!

a very simple card this time.... 
 The little dog is called "Winter Westie" from this week's sponsor Fred She Said. This image comes in a set. with the dog wearing a scarf, another 2 pre-coloured images and without scarf... I decided to used the non-scarf  and not pre-coloured image, as I didn't want to make a winter card and I like to colour my own images.

I really struggled with this card... I wasn't sure what type of card I should make... I don't usually use animals in my cards. But I'm happy with the end result... a bit different to what I'm used to make, but I like to be versatile with my card-making, so there you go!

I coloured the image with my Promarkers. I used just a few colours, as I wanted the dog to be white.... I used: Cool grey 3 and 2, blossom and the blender pen.

The paper's I've used are from : American Crafts Amy Tangerine Paper pad (the red and pink stripes paper), Pebbles Front Porch paper pad (the paper with "writing") and G.C.D. Studios Material Girs sheet collection pack (the little hearts paper). 
I used a square nesting die to cut the window in this last paper and provide a frame for the sentiment.

For the sentiment, I used some letters covered with what I can only describe as "fake sugar"! (please let me know in the comments if you know its name!) and they are from American Crafts.

I finished of with some ribbon, bow and 3 buttons, all from local shops.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

That's it for today! please leave me some love in the comments if you get the chance... Life is really hectic for me at the moment. I've been feeling a bit unwell.. I try to visit all of you every so often... sorry It can't be more often right now... 
And don't forget to follow if you are not already. Thanks so much for your support!

Until next time!
