Puppy love

Good day

Wishing you all a year full of creativity, love and peace of mind and heart. After a few weeks of summer holidays I'm back, hopefully with few new ideas, a lot of energy and a bit more of myself than needed. Hopefully that will disappear soon, with a bit of work.
We had such a lovely surprise before christmas. There were some french people visiting Hubby's work and another collegue sended us some nice french gifts via them. It was such a delightful gesture that I just had to make them this Thank You card.

Now for my post. This is a digi from Pattie's Creations, one of round 9's digis over at the Crafter's digital Art Centre, with the theme of making it your own. We have received it before Christmas, but due to all the holidays the deadline was postponed to the 14th of January. I have to admit, I 'm glad since I had time off to play with the image in my head and I just love dogs and this puppy face.
The orange paper is from my stash and the rest is from W&M, which I also bought, just before christmas. I've used chalk ink for the orange distressing. The sentiment is done with my cuttlebug, one I bought just before christmas - you know that "for - mom - from - mom - gifts". The rhinestones, button and ribbon is from my stash.
The colour scheme choice was guide by Use it Tuesday's challenge of the colours of your favourite sports team - for me it is the Cheetah rugby team in central South Africa, with colours of jade, purple and mainly orange or white.

The challenges I'm joining in:
CDAC round 9 - cdacpc9, PC
Charisma Cardz #50 Team Gem - Anything goes
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 134
Use it Tuesday #22 - Yay team - colours of your favourite sport team
Glitter Geeks #30 - Brand spanking new bragging with your new stash

Thank you and have a splendid day!
