Jingle Belles Week 12

Hi there ... 
Can you believe it's almost 3 months since Christmas?? ... Well it's week 12 at Jingle Belles so there we are ... As you know I've been moving my crafting stuff into a  bigger room ... it not only takes a huge effort ... but some getting used to as well ... I still have lots to do ... like re routing my computer and moving some sockets around ... God Bless my wonderful brother who will be undertaking all this for me ... and the same to my Hubby who has decorated my room so prettily in shades of lavender ... but I was able to get in there and make my card for this week's sketch challenge at Jingle Belles ... made me realise that my lighting needs sorting too ... 
So here is the sketch supplied by Allison Fillo of Stampin' When I Can


Once again I went through my box of old Christmas cards ... I like to recycle when I can ... and started by cutting some images out and playing around with them until I came up with this 


I just loved this cute couple ... and yes the card is quite 'red' for me ... but those lovey dovey pups really called for it ...


a little bit of stitching too just to enhance the glittery hearts 


Aren't they sweet? And now I have 12 cards all done ...

Another positive is that this morning the fresh green buds of spring have finally made an appearance on the trees around my garden ... the woodpecker has become a regular visitor here too and because he is quite a messy eater ... the other smaller birds collect on the ground to hoover up after him ... my new room opens out into the garden so I am really going to enjoy it when the summer comes ... 
I'll post some pics when I can ... have a lovely Sunday 
Till soon

oh my gosh! those pups are just TOO ADORABLE and i love them even more being "recycled" (or i s'pose we say "upcycled" now for crafts?!) whichever it is, this is a ♥BRILLIANT♥ example of taking the perrrrrrfect focal image and then enhancing it with just the right elements to make the sketch SHINE! which you have done" check, check, and CHECK!!! :)

I agree ... the red background is really perfect for those cute little pups ... and I love how you incorporated the repeating hearts into your design ... and a bit woot woot for recycling ... thanks again for joining our jingle belles fun.

These dogs are soooooo cute, I wanted to pick them right off your fab card Ros, but then I decided, no, don't do this, because then other people can't see your sweet card, LOL!
