Anything Goes at Charisma Cardz

Morning :)  Back again today with my DT card for Charisma Cardz where this week our new challenge is 'Anything Goes'.  We are sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique and Digi Doodle Shop so some great prizes to win too!

I matted and layered blue and white bazzil card and cut the cornflowers out on my Cameo.  I sponged the cloudy background with chalks and the image is the fabulous PomPom from Lili of the Valley - deffo one of my 5 favourite stamps of all time! :)

My card is pretty CAS for me, and there is a reason for that........................

Meet wee Hector 

A tornado/bulldozer thats recently arrived at our house to seriously eat into my crafting time!  :D LOL. 

I have spent the week tied to a mop, chasing him round the house and making sure the introduction of a new pup to an already established pack goes relatively smoothly. :)  We have 2 other English Springer Spaniels (Kevin & Oliver, 8 and 6yrs)  and its so important to get this right.  Still - my house, my rules and I am the 'Leader of the Pack'! :D lol

My husband picked the name Hector, I wanted Nigel, but on reflection we are thinking that 'Ivan the terrible' might have been a better choice - I'm knackered! lol :D

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Crafty Calender - Flowers in Bloom
Do You Stack Up - Blue Skies & Clouds
Emerald Faeries - Birthdays
Dream Valley Challenges - Thngs with Wings
I ♥ Promarkers - Anything Goes
Nutcrafters - make a scene
Fab n Funky - Cute & Girly

Lili's Little Fairies - A little bit distressed - I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink round the edges of the background - I hope this counts, if not then please delete my entry :)

My Mums Craft Shop - Favourite Stamp - I have 3 LOTV stamps that take turns as my favourite stamp, PomPom is one of them :) Please delete my entry if this doesnt count, but its soooo hard to choose! lol
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, I will be catching up with everyone and my comments over the next day or two, its just been a teensy bit manic this week,

Oh Alison what a lovely card! And now on earth can we just choose one favourite! Impossible! lol Aw just look at him, he is so cute! Judy x

Paula (PEP) said...

He looks absolutely..............mischievous! Hector's quite a good nam as he seems to be Hectoring in his own manner........ Hope he's not wearing the other two out & it sounds & looks as if you have your hands absolutely full - what does he think of bits of paper/gems???????
The cornflowers look splendid in that colour with the white butterflies.

Oh - ain't he just adorable!

One of our cats is Dennis (the menace) - a cuter white chinchilla you couldn't wish to see, but the breeder said he was like it from the time he found his feet and was the leader of the pack! Mind you, his brother Ollie is not far behind ....

Fabulous card as always.
