Four Legged Friends

Who can remember the words to the song, "Four Legged Friend" by Roy Rogers, I do! Well, that's the theme on the OSAAT this week. We would love to see your creations about your four legged friends, be it dogs, cats, horses, any animal with the required legs!

For my card this week I have used the Coosty Creations Animal Sentiments which are all gorgeous sentiments for your cards you can find them in the Stitchy Bear's Digital Stamp Outlet right here.
What a lovely sentiment this is and means a lot to me as mostly my dogs have come from animal shelters. I, personally, would not buy a pedigree dog when there are so many in shelters that need our love for the rest of their days.

As I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point of my card I've kept the rest very simple. The dog, bone and ball are all from a Spellbinders die and I've used a pice of cotton ribbon for the bow. Just a few card candi buttons to accentuate the sentiment.

What a beautiful day.

I hope you are having a beautiful day, the sky is a perfect blue and not a cloud in the sky. My little dog, Tuppence, is a real sunbather but knows when to come into the shade and sleep under the trees. The dogs are having a walk early in the morning as we don't sleep with the sun pouring in.

Well, I have been awol for a month having a fabulous holiday in France. We like to book a French farmhouse deep in the countryside and the one this year was perfect. The farm had its own fishing lake just outside our door and the farm dogs would come and visit before the days got too warm. One in particular, Houlk, loved just watching my husband fish, she would get so close to him but never attempt to harm the fish, such a gentle creature. A gentle va t'en or allez-vous-en and she would leave us.

I have two cards this week, the first one is for the challenge posting I missed being away.

This sweet image is by Digi Blessings and is called Patchwork Heart and you can find it here. The background paper is from SU that I've had for sometime and I've used a green mat at an angle to compliment the colours in the image. One of my favourite dies, Baby Buntings has a number from the fairly new Spellbinders dies Numbers and Alphabet.  The image has been coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Copics.

This week's challenge over on One Stitch At A Time is for Anything Goes With Sweet Treat and please enter our challenge that can be found here.

This week I chose to use Beary Dust Stamps image called Birthday Fairy, such a little sweetie!

She has been coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Copics as usual. The background paper came from the Dovecraft Sweet Paris paper pack which is so pretty. The image has been mounted on a pale green mat and I have popped some Wild Orchid flowers and leaves onto a small piece of cheesecloth.  The sentiment is self generated and honestly, could you resist someone so cute?
