DT Monday - for Boys and Dogs!!

What do I mean?? Well you will find out soon further down. I am now back in Malaysia after a very long vacation in Sweden. Lovely summer, even if I didn't get to go to Magnolia, can you believe it? Never mind, next time! OK, today is DT Monday and we start with....




Aren't they the cutest, Mo's dog and boy? Love this image which I colored with Copics, the papers are from Basic Grey, the details I found among my Swedish stash. This week's prize is from Digital Delights.
Patti brings us this challenge, which I never heard of, but thanks to Google I found out it's about lazy doing nothing days, like during vacation. Hope I was right, LOL! This image by Nina/Paper Cupcakes is perfect for the project. Lazy day on the beach. I used paper piecing technique and framed it in a white wooden frame I had hanging around empty. For this challenge you can use any acquired image from PCC.

First off..Welcome Home! I so love both of your cards. Being an animal lover these are very close to my heart! I love the top card with the scalloped border, and the second card is so awesome with that white wooden frame. What a great use for your picture. I love the umbrella and the life preserver on the sides!!! Glad you had a wonderful holiday. Check your mail this week, you should be receiving a little something from me. I am really hoping it arrives safe and sound!!

Nydelige kort og for noen flotte motiver. Neste år treffes vi kanskje i Magnoliabutikken? Haha. Jeg har begynt å like de stemplene jeg også.

Wonderful Nilla...I really like both cards. That Mo Manning image is just too cute. I have just tried a little paper piecing and it is such fun.
