SCD Colour theme 'greens & yellows'

Hello fellow crafters/bloggers what a whirl wind of a week. I can not believe it's Friday, I almost missed this post altogether (shame on me) However, I have lots to discuss so on on to business ;0) I hope you are all well and I am sorry I didn't get round to all the participants of last week colour challenge of SCD as I normally do,  we had a great turn out thank you all for supporting the challenge and I am so glad you had a fabby time with it. As you can see it's a tag for me this week and sticking to the wonderful challenge colours of green's and yellow's so Autumnal.

Here is a close up and you can see all the lovely colours which are DIs layers on a tag using some fabby Oxford Impression stamps and a wee bit of stickles glitter, did I say how busy I was this week? Although simple I really like 'Autumn in Paris' and I hope you do to.

Meet another addition to our happy home, this is Lola a 4mth old cross Beagle/Dash hound maybe some Basset in there too lol We lost our beloved dog Dita in March and hubby decided he was putting on too much weight and needed another dog. She is just darling but in no way a replacement of our beloved Dita. Lola is also a rescue  dog and has firmly made her self part of the family already. She is wonderful with our grand son and the cats (i.e. she doesn't chase them) and they are staying clear of her, but they have been in  the same room and she just watches them and then want's to play, although the cats may not feel playful with her just yet! But all are tolerant of each other so this is fabby news (makes me very happy I can tell you) I love my cats so much and she would have had to go back if they couldn't of got on so all is well I hope you will all welcome her.

And finally but by no means least I have reached my 200th follower and I am so thankful that you are all part of my crafting journey. I would like to reward that by giving you a gift! Yep candy is a great way to celebrate. As you are aware I am now a GDT member of the Altered Element The lovely Lynne has agreed to give a £10 voucher for me to give away (HOW COOL?) and as I have been asked to appear in November for another GDT (tell you when I am allowed) and just because I have been missing all week I am also going to give a £10 voucher for the Altered Element So that is a MASSIVE £20 to spend on whatever you would like to in the Altered Element Go and have a look, if you don't know this shop already I promise you it's a fab place for all you mixed media artist & card makers alike. So what do you have to do? Well leave a comment. That's all you have to do. I hope you continue to stop by and share my crafting journey as you are all inspirations to me. Love Dawn xx

Gorgeous tag so dreamy and pretty. Lola looks like a delightful little lady so sad that one so younge was in need of rescue. If your charming cats are used to having a dog around then you should be fine with your newly extended family. Take care and have fun xx Zoe

Your tag is gorgeous! I love the resist in the background and that little touch of Stickles is so pretty - the perfect touch. I agree with a comment above - Lola has a kind face. She looks adorable, and it's so lucky the cats tolerate her (don't know what my two fur babies would do to a dog... might not be pretty, LOL!) Congrats on the followers, and that is one very, very generous candy - thanks for the chance. :)

Jo said...

Congratulations on Lola! What a sweetie she looks. And that's a great tag too, and I agree with Artyjen, the tower does look 3D - great effect.

Well deserved number of followers - thank you for gorgeous giveaway!

That is one super tag. Love it. Congrats on your followers, too. I won't be entering your giveaway since I'm a tad too far away to win, but want to say it's a fabulous one and (you know me) love the idea of no hoops, no commitments. I don't see an end date, but will mention it on WOYWW next week.
