A Little Autumn Shi tzu

Thought I'd give you and myself a little break from Christmas cards. Isn't he the cutest, when you see these little dogs as puppies you know why they are so popular,but a word of warning...there are many ladies by me that walk these cuties but most of them are little sods,yappy unsocial brats...mind you as my poodles are getting old they have become grumpy old men.
The image is a digi from inklined called Shitzu and can be found here for £1. I discovered this digi company via Jules blog , and I'm glad I did.
I've coloured him with promarkers. The papers are graphic 45, dragonfly duet,so lovely I was loathed to cover it.The 2 side panels are K&Co paper embossed in a cuttlebug folder and ink distressed.The leaves and flowers are kars wooden embellishments also inked.I've added green organza ribbon and a computer generated sentiment.

That image is just gorgeous Jane, so cute. Your papers are lovely as are your wooden embellishments.
I refuse to put the heating on until October, but I have relented and turned on the heated towel rails in the bathrooms so at least we can have a warm bath/shower in the mornings.

Hi Jane

A great card .. .. and a great image.

Looks like we have both found somewhere new we like visiting!! LOL!! (Sorry for spending your pennies).

Yes, definitely a nip in the air now. I have a feeling my runner beans are not all going to make it to the freezer or cooking pot and the tomatoes that are left will not be turning red!! Shame :-(

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
