Lovely Louie

Well I'm still not feeling very creative, but I just had to try and make something with one of the cute new images from DigiStamp Boutique...




I just love this image, Louie is so adorable!  You can get the Louie collection here.  I'm not really happy with my card though - there are some days when I just can't seem to get my colouring right and today was one of them.  I've coloured Louie (badly) with promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  Not sure what make the gingham card is, the dark brown cardstock is from Papermill Direct.  Added some card candy and a Little Claire sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
We got absolutely soaked on the way to school this morning, and Dex doesn't go to nursery on Thursdays so he had to do the journey back with me too after dropping Morgan off... Dex was very cheerful about it really even though he must have been freezing and he's starting with a cold.  We were feeling a bit sorry for ourselves by the time we got back though, and hubby said he'd pop out from work and pick Morgan up this afternoon so we don't have to trail out in the rain again :o)  Oh I do hope my car is fixed soon!

Lisa, This is cuteness overload. I love the soft coffee colours and that image is just adorable. Love it.
PD - My hubby is also from Sheffield so I know (some of) it fairly well. His family still live in the Gleedless area, but he's. moved 'down South' when we got together. Nice city centre with all the recent renovations and the Winter Gardens are nice (nice coffee shop if I remember rightly!)
