Gruffie with pizza....relax

I've still got blocked ears , it's driving me mad !!!!!!
To keep my mind off it a spot of colouring , always relaxing , well for me anyway .
I've used  a gruffie stamp from the stamp set "slice of happiness " from Joanna Sheen , I've coloured with promarkers , the shading on the grey fur is the trickiest to get right.
My papers are "Neroli " by first edition 6x6 pad. The sentiment is lili of the valley and the cola bottle (love this new buy ) is a die from Taylored Expressions with added gold letter peeloffs and stars. I've added a star button threaded with red butchers twine for a finishing touch.
This card would be perfect for my brother who is a pizza lover , well aren't we all , so naughty but nice!

challenges entered :

Sketch Saturday : followed the sketch above that I rotated
House Mouse and friends : relax and enjoy life 
Gruffies & guests : anything goes with the option of boys 
open minded rafting : Summer food

enjoy your Sunday , where going to dinner at my Mums, roast beef and Yorkshire puddings  ...yum

Hello Foxy

Morning crafters , hope your well , I've still got blocked ears. I can't have them syringed till a doctor has looked at them , that's Monday , then syringed on Tuesday  , it's like being underwater we take our hearing for granted, I will be so glad to get back to normal , but I'm lucky mine is only temporary.

I took advantage of the "spellbinders pick of the week " on CC TV awhile ago manly because I feel in love with this gorgeous foxy die. I cut him in orange bazil card then sanded it alittle. I added some white paper behind and highlighted the details of the eyes ,ears and nose with a brown pen. The tree die is called "arboscello " and is from memory box , I've added tiny red and yellow gems.
The papers are my minds eye "darling dear " and the digi sentiment is from Pink Petticoat "foxy " , love the fonts from them , I used a wood ware hole punch to cut an aperture for the sentiment and added more gems , I like how it turned out and shall use this again.
