How about a challenge for the DOGS!

This week at Penny's the challenge is to create something with a dog. Why you ask? Well 55 years ago on June 22 Walt Disney released the classic Lady and the Tramp. So, in honor of that...We wanna see your dogs!




For my card this week I chose to use the image Kolar Remembers from K n' K Designs. I have colored him with Creative Memories markers and chalk. The DP's are K & Co. and the cardstock is from SU!. I must have been pretty tired last night while making this, notice how crooked the inside is? lol Oops! =0) I plan to send this card to my hubby in Afghanistan...he'll never notice!

It's time for a new challenge at KAH-Wink-E-Dink. This week our challenge is '6 of something' in honor of the 6th month in the year...JUNE! OMGosh!!! This year is already half over! Is it just me or does time fly these days?! Okay, enough about that, here's my card...





For this weeks challenge I chose to use Cartwheel Charlie. I made this card to give to my son's Kindergarten teacher for an end of the year Thank you. The sentiment on the inside was a freebie from Create with TLC. In order to meet the challenge I used six metallic dots. Also, I didn't do it on purpose, but if you look to each side of the image there are 6 dots showing on the ribbon...I guess that was just an added bonus! =0)
