Are You Talkin’ To Me???

It’s that time of the week again.  Time for a new challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges.  There are so many gorgeous images to choose from that you’ll want to look here at the Shop to see what this month’s specials are.  This week is the challenge that everyone loves: Anything Goes.

I’ve used this funny little guy.  I have a schnauzer, Oliver, who thinks he rules the house and he pretty much does. LOL.  So this title is very fitting.
I colored his pillow purple because it reminds me of royalty, and he definitely looks like he’s looking down his nose at us. I didn’t think he needed much in the way of decoration, so all I did was run the purple paper through the crimper and did three layers of nestibilities, including the image.  I used a MS stamp, ribbon  and some black buttons.

The paper, buttons and ribbon are from my stash. On the inside I used another MS punch, this one is called Cherished.
I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Frosted Designs – buttons
Really Reasonable Ribbons – cool & ribbon
Paper Cutz Challenge – anything
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge – no pink or blue
Sweet Stop Sketches – sketch
CES Challenges – funny
Totally Gorjuss – punch or die
Lollipop Crafts – anything
Hooked On Craft Challenges – cute
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges – anything
Die cut Dreams – 4-legged animal
The Stamping Boutique – cool colors

Deep OCean Challenge Blog – ribbon
7 Kids Challenge Blog – texture
Craft Us Crazy – anything
Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog – make someone smile

Thanks for looking at my work.  Don’t forget to stop over at the blog and see what the other ladies have made.  As usual, they have some awesome work.
