Papertake Weekly Challenge

Morning folks and don't know about you....but I am totally cheesed off at the weather... RAIN..RAIN.. RAIN and nothing but RAIN....I am trying to remember if it rained on St Swithin's Day which was last Thursday....because as the saying goes it will rain for 40 days and 40 nights but according to the boffins at the Met Office this is a load of baloney....pure folklore....what do they know....they can't even predict the weather a few hours ahead.
But it's not all bad news.....I've been marooned in the cubbyhole all cosy and snug watching the rain lashing against the window....The Budster snoring at my feet... the smell of wet dog wafting around my nostrils...happy as larry and I think even Mr Mojo is glad to be back home out of the rain....lots of crafty stuff done and dusted including a challenge card.
The challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly is......

and they don't come much cuter than this sweet little missy

Papers: Jenny Bowlin
Image: LOTV....Best Friends..Hug Time
Ribbon: Simply Create

Pearls...Hobby House

Hi Kath and King Dog Blogger
First Class card, love the spotted paper and the image is so cute. Funny how Dogs and Puppies always melt us. "A dog leaves paw prints on our hearts" - love this saying, but it is VERY TRUE. Hugs and tickles behind the ears - Denise & Meg.

Kath, your card is fabulous.

Kat said...

Yes yesterday was wonderful wasn't it? Hope it's better today as my friend and I are off to Alford in a wee while!

Love this card, that image is so sweet. Love the paw print tag!

My daughter came home the other day and she is really missing the dog! Not practical for her to have a dog though and be out at work all day. Would you believe she needed a dress ironed for a wedding she's going to on Saturday. It's in Cumbria so goodness knows if it'll still be ok when she gets there!

Sweet card Kath. You have coloured her beautifully. Sorry to hear your weather is so grim. We've been lucky here in the SE and been mostly dry!

Glad the clouds aren't only bursting over Lancashire! I was drenched through to my knickers AGAIN yesterday when I stupidly decided to get some exercise and walk the 2 miles to the supermarket haha

Gorgeous card as usual Kath and maybe the rain does your Mr Mojo good!

Take care and hugs to Buddy

I really love this image, just so cute. Can I request a translation please - what does drookit mean?

I am sure we had rain on St Swithens Day down our end of the country - so expecting the rain for many more days yet ;-(
