Week 120 Theme

This week is theme week at Less Is More and we hope you enjoy the choice.  We know you will come up with some fabulous creations.  We want to see cards with

Cats and/or Dogs 

We want to see cards with your favourite pet or both. We know you will all use your imagination.  Here are our cards for this week.

I'm really sorry if I've missed visiting you last week I had a nightmare of a week at work so have only managed one card this week.

After a very busy week at work I managed to put together this little card with a very cute image from Lili Of The Valley.  This is one of my favourites.  It's simply coloured in with FlexMarkers and mounted on to bright pink card.  The ribbon from Stampin Up finishes it off.  I even managed not to do any stiching on it!!!

First of all, I was delighted to see that you wouldn't let me get away with a card that was not exactly one layer last week... you've obviously all been well schooled!
Many apologies, but I did want to showcase another of our sponsor's images... I was summoned to look after a little man who had conjunctivitis and couldn't go to Nursery and so being at  my daughter's (with my hands full) I didn't have the opportunity to make another!
OK... grovel over!

For this card, I used an image from Rubber Stampede (£1) from the NEC a while back, and made a hugs and kisses panel using some Kaisercraft grunge letters. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches...well mainly! I used the word 'smooches' to make the word 'pooch' by masking the beginning and end of it and then adding the P with a pigment liner pen.

Another simple card using just a few die-cuts and a stamp. The cat and the window are from Memory Box (I think), the sentiment is from Paper Smooches. I cut a cloud shape to use as a mask when sponging the sky, which was layered behind the window. We used to have a cat who would sit for hours like this one!
There are a few more cat and dog cards on my personal blog, I'd love you to pop by to look at them.

We can't wait to see what you come up with!
