Here Comes Hooch!!!!!!

Most of my followers know that all my cards go to the local Animal Shelter and I know that they would prefer more cards showcasing animals. Well, I'm not good at coloring fur.....actually I'm scared to death of creating a disaster!!!!! Well, let me say that I discovered this adorable stamp from Little Miss Muffet on Vicky's blog. She is an incredibly talented artist......Love her amazing works of art. You can see her spectacular card HERE.
I used papers from Hot Off the Press, a pink Prima flower and the cute charm was purchased at our local Canine Care Center. I also used a T. Holtz butterfly die in the background and the blue butterfly was a gift from a dear friend, as well as the lovely lace.
The puppy with the orange bow is showcased on BG Max and Whiskers collection. The feathers are from a Cockatoo. Both images were colored with copics!

Thank you, Vicky, for the inspiration!!!! Mmwaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!


  1. I think you've done them proud Christina. Love how you have added bold colour papers to the first one. Gorgeous. They will love them. Look forward to seeing more.
    I am sitting next to my four legged friend atm who is on his back with all his legs in the, lol, you could say he's very comfortable.

    1. Christina, Love both cards!! They look amazing in their own way!! Love the way you colored the fur!! Take care!!


  17. Christina I am absolutely in love with both of these!! They look so differently by having used the other colours. The first one is definitely a
    a pretty locking little girl - the other - certainly a more or a boy and with dark hair and stronger colours.
