Thursday and Friday Challenges

Do you ever wish for the end of the week even before the beginning of the week starts? Well, I'm usually wishing for Thursday and Friday when its only Monday or Tuesday?! So in honour of wishing for the end of the week, I've created this card and submitted it to 2 challenges.

Cute Card Thursday has a weekly challenge and this week's is All Creatures Great and Small. They want to see creatures on your card - your pick. They're giving away some awesome blog candy and if you're addicted to Magnolia like I am, don 't pass up the chance to visit their site. What a way to end the week if you're the lucky winner! I know it's not about winning but a little reward at the end of the week is always soooo nice!

What would the end of the week be without Friday so be sure to check out the Thank God It's Friday site - doesn't the name say it all!! Anyway, they have a weekly challenge as well and this week's is all about ribbons. I don't know about you but I don't use ribbon very often as I don't think I have a knack for it. But what's a challenge if it's not challenging for the participant?

Check out Erica's blog at Scrapalicious. She has been so nice to provide the link for a free blog signature. I've been wanting to add this to my blog but didn't know how. Thanks Erica! I just have to figure out how to get rid of the box around the signature - oh well.

Well onto the recipe for this card: I used Chocolate Chip SU cs for the background card and DCWV Spring CS Matstock and DCWV pink from the Spring Matstack. I chose the Delia Angel image by none other than High Hopes and coloured it in with Copics. I tried to make the dog's fur look distressed with the Copics by using the Copic blender and it's an interesting effect. It was a pretty challenging image to colour with all the critters and the angel but I tried to match the colours with the DCWV Spring cs. I also used some bling for the angel's wings and the heart in the saying but can't remember where I got them. As for the saying, it is a partial from Hero Arts and the flowers are of course my fav - Primas. Last but not least the ribbons are by Dots & Dashes purchased from Michael's. Hope you like it!

Have a great week creating and blogging!
