Hi everyone...yesterday my baby girl had surgery to repair a torn ligament in her knee. Poor thing, I get to pick her up after work today and I just cannot wait to see her and snuggle her up. It is going to be a rought next couple of weeks though because I have to keep her from running and jumping. That means she must stay confined to the kitchen while I'm at work and won't get to lay in her fav spot on the front sofa watching the world go by. I'll put her little bed in front of the garden doors and with any luck a squirrel will run by to amuse her! But then again, chasing squirrels is what put her in this condition so maybe it is best that they stay away until she is 100% again. This is a pic of her doing what she does best, chasing one of little fur devils up the tree and standing guard.
Dogwalkabella is dedicated to my little fur baby Bessie and the simple pleasures sentiment is so appropriate because going for a little walk is one of the small things that can give a pup so much joy. I used the Marrakech paper to guide my color scheme and colored it up with copics, but used pencils for shading and grass. No glitter on this card...shocking...instead I layered some buttons and tucked in some ribbon, the border punch you see peeking out is Martha Stewart.
For inquiring minds, these are the copic colors used on this card.
E0000, 00, 11, 13, 15, 35
E40, 42, 43, 44, 50, 51, 53
BG72, 75, 93, 96, 99
R21, 22, 24, C0, C1, blender
