Hugs for you

This is the first of two posts for today so do come back later to see another card from me.

Some of you know its my Birthday tomorrow and a very strange package arrived for Graham - I am not sure what it is and I can't shake it anymore than I have done so I suppose I will need to wait til morning to see what it contains - my wish list was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long ha ha!!

My first card is for the following challenges:~

Fab N Funky Beat It, Torn or Distressed;
I Love Promarkers Cute (and they both are gorgeous aren't they);
Sweet Sketch Wednesday;
I Did It Creations Animals and
Ruby's Rainbow Cute and Cuddly.

Using a fab clear stamp from Mo Manning, I used my PMs to colour then matted and layered, distressing as I went along.  As you can see I am still loving the plasterer's scrim I bought in B&Q - it is so cheap and you can do anything with it.

I just love the cheeky look on her face and the expression on the dog's face is one of fear, surprise or shock I am not sure.

 Here is the finished card - I love how it has come out even tho I had to take the pic of it lying down as Sooty wouldn't leave it standing up - little bu##er that he is - I know we all love our cats and I also know that lots of crafter have problems with them lying on their work - ours both like to lie on  my table as I am trying to colour or stick so we have  lots of fun ha ha!!

Clear stamp from Stampavie Mo Manning (no name on packaging sorry);
DPs are from Funky Hands Colour Me Happy;
PMs used Caramel, Cinnamon, Blush, Dusky Pink, Oatmeal, Dusky Rose, Antique Pink,  Spice & Coral, Light Fawn FM used to outline image;
Scrim and sentiment from stash.
