Fairy kisses of love

Hello everyone,

Back at work is so hard when most people have gone on holidays. Work slows down to a crawl and the clock just seems to go backwards. I have just started watching Glee season one from the begining as I got season one and two for Christmas. Love it I have even got my little girls hooked on it.

Today's card is for the MOJO monday's 171 sketch. I have use design paper from Stampin' Up! and Love stamps from SU's Kenji set. I have used the adorable fairy from The Greeting farm and coloured her in simple colours with copics.

Thank you for looking.

Merry Xmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

I have some happier news we manage to find one our dogs that ran away a few weeks ago. We found him safe and well roaming the street not to far from us. However we believe or rather we hope that our other dog Porsha has been taken in by another family. We are still praying to get her back.

I finally got my mojo back now that I'm happier and have the Christmas spirit in me. I decided to come out a play some Blog Challenges. I have been meaning to do a Mojo sketch for a long time so I decided to follow this week's sketch # 170 and I couldn't go past the colour create challenge with their cool colour scheme of PLUM and White.

I bought a new digi stamp from Tickled Pink called Luca so I combined all three and came up with the card below

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful and safe Christmas.

Porsha and Rhade you have touched my life.

Hello everyone,

I've been very sad all week, as I have lost my two very precious dogs on Tuesday, they are two Miniature Schnauzers called Porsha and Rhade. My darling daughter had left the gate open or rather not shut properly and the dogs had got out.
We raced around trying to find them. We had some people see the dogs in various places around our home, but we have not been able to find them. It is very distressing as they were like our children. The oldest dog called Porsha was like our first born as we got her before kids.

Anyway before I cry....

The card above was made using the stamp sets Embrace life and Rose is Rose. I coloured the roses and the "leaves" in copics and glittered the edges. I used black, natural ivory, Designer paper from candy lane. I put faux stitching around the edges so finish of the card.

I think this card reflects how I feel at the moment.
I am entering this card at The Colour Dare - Red and Green
