From Our House

Hey Everybody,

Hope you all had a fabulous week, and have been enjoying your weekend.  Another pretty active week for myself, but ALL good stuff.  My dog grooming trainer has upped the antie, and I got to do some more detailed grooming last week.  She and the owners are very happy with my progress, and if this next week goes as planned I should be on their payroll by the next week!  So, please keep me in your prayers that all goes well.

This week I decided simple is a good thing, and chose an image from DDS that Mom created called "Christmas Door" (one of my favorites).  I colored it with Promarkers, and did a little ink distressing around the edges and used a large needle to create border punch - I think that's how you say it :-)

Other art mediums used:

Papers; Scrap N Tubes Christmas Papers 7, and white card stock by Colorbok
Ribbon & Pearl made my stash
Bell; From a package of mini bell ornaments, and I actually cut it in half, so that it would lay nicely on the card.
Glitter on the ornaments; From my local thrift store - wish you could see it better.
Snow; Liquid Applique
Sentiment; DDS and was made in Paint Shop Pro

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

This is really pretty, but sadly you have linked it to too many challenges for us at Less is More where we have a maximum of 5 which may be combined.
We are also solely a Clean & Simple challenge where we like to see areas of white space, minimal layers and few embellishments.
Do join us again.
Thanks so much

Gorgeous card, Judy! Wonderful coloring of the holiday door! Thanks for sharing your card for the Outlawz Copic/Promarker Challenge this week!

Kristine said...

ooo, so PRETTY Judy!! love that door image and your coloring is beautiful! Congrats on your grooming skills, will say a prayer they hire you soon! :) I wish I knew more so I could groom my own dog. She's a pomeranian/chihuahua mix and I've already trimmed her tail, hair on her ears (they were always in her eyes) and a li'l on the bum bum lol. I'm no groomer that's for sure! Poor thing. At least i didn't resort to shaving her. She'd go into hiding for sure! :) Good luck on that business Judy.
