Lazy afternoon with your best friend…

august sketch ddsc

It’s that time of week again. Time for a new challenge over at DDSC.  I hope that everyone had a great time with the anything goes challenge.  This week we have the sketch you see above.  As you see, I’ve turned mine on it’s side.

I think this is such a lovely image and something that I can image seeing on a rainy or cold day.  Of course today, there are not near enough events when young ones want to stay inside and read.  They are too happy to be on the computer or latest gaming machine.  Stop over at the Shop and check out the great sales this month.
Also don’t forget to stop by and see what the lovely ladies on the DT have chosen to create this week.  I can tell you they're awesome.

The recipe for my card is very simple this week.  It's all been colored with my Prismacolor pencils.  I wasn't very happy with the front of the dog, so  I started over, but I didn't like the rest of that card, so I cut out the front of the dog and popped him up (which gave it  depth)and I thought it really looked better.   I’ve used Nestibles to make the mats, used the mesh and the items from “Dress It Up” for all of the dog items.  The background paper has paw prints all over it and is by Carol Wilson, Fine Arts that I found at Tuesday Mornings.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Dutch Dare Card Challenge – for a child

Craft Us Crazy – anything

Digi’s With Attitude - anything

Have a great week.  I hope you'll stop in again later.
