Thick as Thieves - Sassy Cheryl - PFP DT

Good morning everyone. Hope you have had a good week. Mine was supposed to be a crafting one but ended up being spring cleaning.  I don't know about you but the thing I hate to do most in the world is ironing !!!!  I hate it so much that it gets to the stage where I only iron what I need, that means a lot of ironing builds up (4 sets of bedding for starters)... but I can now say that everything in my house has been washed IRONED and put away. I always feel quite chuffed when I clear it, don't know why I let it build up.  So that's part of why I have been MIA.

On to today's card which is totally different for me. My attempt at CAS. How I had to sit on my hands not to add corners, flowers and pearls to it. :) It's also a different shape, a change from a square, and I used my new toy for the background.  I have searched for months for a Promarker Airbrush and finally found one, so this is my first attempt at airbrushing too. This card is for PFP challenge for which the theme of Animals was chosen by Nat.

She is mounted onto a SB Timeless Rectangle, cut from Bazzil basics.  The dp is from Nitwits and ribbon from my stash

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencisl. I also added Glossy accents to the dogs nose, and for once it does show on the photo.

The inside does reflect the front.

Our sponsor this week is Bearly Mine Designs who are offering a £10 voucher for their amazing papers to the winner.  I hope you will pop over and see the fabulous cards the DT have made for your inspiration this week  Don't forget you have to use Letraset products to colour your images to be eligible to enter

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look, I will be around later to see what I have been missing over the past few days

This is gorgeous Eileen. I love that image, your colouring is fabulous, especially the detail on the dog's fur. The Spellbinders frame looks so wonderful that no other embellishments are needed.

Hi Eileen,

You are such a sweetheart. Thank you doll for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment.

Also wanted to mention that you are a woman after my own heart. The only thing I like about cleaning, is when it's, so congrats to you on getting your cleaning and IRONING all done.

I seen this card this morning on PFP, and didn't even realize that it was yours. It sure did catch my eye though, and your AB is fabulous! WTG
