Good evening
There's a new challenge up for May over at Lily-Bootoo and this month Lucy asked us to make a shaped card. I couldn't resist the 'hang dog' look on this adorable digi image from one of the new sets drawn by the very talented Sam. He comes in a set of cute doggie images for just £1.99.
I love making shaped cards so I got out my trusty Cricut and made this card using Design studio to make the shaped Kennel with the following carts
Kennel                 Paper Pups Cart
Bone                    Mickey and Friends
The word Dog      Cutting Up
The word House   Plantin School
I'm not much of a colourer but this image only required colouring the black patches with a black promarker and I added glossy accents to make his nose all shiny!
The polka dot paper is Pink Petticoat and the yellow is from DCWV  Citrus stack.
I think this card could be a sorry card for I missed/forgot your birthday or so many other sorry cards and I'm sure you'd be forgiven when they see the sweet little face on this little doggy and wouldn't be in 'the doghouse' for long for forgetting!
Hope you can join us in the challenge this month we'd love to see your shaped cards over at Lily-Bootoo, pop over and have a look at the super creations the rest of the team have created this month!
I am entering this card in to a few challenges too
Cupcake Craft        Don't Be Square
CRAFT                  Shaped Card

Penny's Challenges
I'm off now to play mum's taxi and take my son's friends home before coming back to a nice glass of wine !
Have a great weekend everyone!
