Dog Days of Summer

Isn't this the coolest dog you every did see!  The two winners of the CDAC May Digital Drawing Contest have provided the images for a Members Special Challenge.  This image is from Patties Creations.  I have colored the images with copics, and added Ranger Glossy accents to the glass.
The DP is from My Minds Eye and the Sentiment was computer generated.

Had a wonderful morning played our away game in Lowville to-day - good fun, didn't win any prizes for my golfing, but did manage to win the 50/50 draw.  And we all enjoyed a great lunch.

Leggie Lilly

This wonderful image which I think would be great for any young teen is from Jen Leeflang for Digi Stamps 4 Joy. Love those huge eyes!  I started out by printing her on pink very fine denim dp which I was going to use to paper piece her shorts and top, then I changed my thinking and colored her with copics on that paper.  I added Foil embossed swirls from Forever in Time to the side and her hair, the ones in the hair didn't photograph as well as the side ones.  Used a white Pergamano pen on her eyes and shoes.  Sentiment from Peel Offs and DP from my stash.  This is an entry for CDAC Challenge for the month of June, it is one of two images for the challenge.

Have not been making cards or posting lately as my husband has returned home, a week ago now, after two and a half months - two weeks in hospital and two months in a nearby retirement home in a Back to Home Program, recovering from a broken hip.  He is doing very well, staying on the main floor, using his walker in the house.  He will have to catch up on all his doctors and dentist and other appointments he missed while away.  We have been to a few of these already.

Sunny Honeycloud Card and Cupcake

This image is from Pollycraft, they are closing up shop June the 8th.  But they do have some wonderful bargains on their images until then.  I stuck with the colors of turquoise and greens.  The image is colored with copics. Isn't she a real sweetheart with her big blue eyes! The designer papers are from Stamping Up, except the ovals which along with the flowers and lace are from my stash.The charm is from Blue Moon Jewellry, it does have a turquoise stone in the centre of the flower.  I guess my lighting was not too good when I took the picture this afternoon.  But I took the card with me to a party at dinner tonight to give it to a friend June whose birthday is to-day, June 1st.  So I could not do a retake on the picture of the card.
I am entering this card into the MMMSC138 Challenge.
Raining very hard tonight, but I didn't get too wet running back and forth from my car. We hadn't had rain for several weeks, so really needed it.
