One of the lovely things about sunny days in Winter is that best mates Sally the Black Lab and Monty the blonde Golden Retriever can enjoy a bit of rough play. We haven't seen Monty at the Park this week - we're staying out of the cold as Sal is a bit stiff and due for her anti- inflam injection and a check up with the Surgeon - she had a tumour removed from behind her Right knee last Dec that was benign. So with the sun shining bright we popped in to see him and were greeted very warmly - she got her customary paw to the head as she skipped through the gate on her way to check if he'd left her any of his breakfast…..which he had!! But soon he had her attention and the play was on!
And very deserving of YOUR full attention is the wonderful colour challenge over at Just Add Ink. This week the lovely Nikki has suggested a gorgeous Colour challenge for you. The Team have been busy creating some amazing cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and have a look :-)
Aren't these such gorgeous colours? And so many options!
Here is what I made:
My first thought when I saw these colours was how elegant the combination seemed and so I wanted to explore that angle. I had seen a lovely idea for a greeting panel by Teneale Williams using the now retired Label Framelits and decided that would work well here. The flower and leaves are part of the Crazy About You stamp set - I hadn't looked much further than the words before either - lots of fussy cutting :-)
Card stock: Night of Navy, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Versamark
Stamps: Crazy About You, Four You (retired)
Accessories: Big Shot, Label Framelits, Gold EP, Subtles Candy Dots
Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you have a moment to pop by Just Add Ink and see all the wonderful creations the Team have made to inspire you this week - showing some new products too!! And I look forward to seeing what your interpretation of these beautiful colours are :-)
In the meantime, here are a couple of photos from earlier today. Monty is 5yrs Sally's junior although you'd be hard pressed to know it - she is still the boss :-) They "met" four years ago at the local Park and quickly became the best of friends playing together every evening. Since then they both get quite miserable if they don't see each other for a few days - poor Monty went off his food when she had her surgery and we were asked to pop over so they could say hello through the gate! The day they could see each other again without the gate in-between was pretty special both for dogs and owners :-) These days she can't play as long but he doesn't seem to mind as long as she gives him her attention and some kisses - they play rough but there is no doubt they adore each other :-)
Monty, so happy to see her he is running around like a crazy puppy!
She's smaller but still taller - not bad for an 11year old :-)
Life is good - two happy mates will both sleep well tonight :-)
Happy stamping until next time,
