Penny Black Challenge



The challenge this week is a sketch and for this I used a fabby image courtesy of Kath and went for a pink and brown theme and the sentiment says A Woman's work is never done- amd whatever way you look at it that is such a true saying!

I used the swiss dots folder and the distressed stripes folder and added some card candy too
Have had such a busy busy week and can see no stopping of it either
Off to the pictures tomorrow night too and have another competition on Sunday- don't even ask bout last weekends ones!- lets just say we will put them down to experience- hopefully the one on Sunday will go better
Bud is nearing retirement so if he does it he does it if not well..... he's more than earned his keep and going to Crufts with him last year will always remain the ultimate highlight for us both and Misty well that;'s another story...... boy can she do it and she is gorgeous when she works but lets just say many things interfere with the performance on the day such as- oh I'm rather shy and couldn't possibly with people watching- oh it's too hot- oh it's too wet- oh I thought we were just in that ring for a carry on- oh I thought I couldn't be bothered today .... oh and the list goes on believe you me
She is a darling and I love her but many a person has said to me they would have gave up long along with her.... but she is my precious baby and I know when its just me and her she does it wonderfully she just has a lot of shyness issues to deal with and even if she never wins anything she has won in my eyes as she has come such a long way and made so much progress compared to what she was like and I am so thankful for her in my life
Well I know you only tuned in to see my Penny Black card and here I am ranting on about my dogs and dog shows so have a nice week end and if I don't catch up with you over the week end its cause I'm rather busy- also have 21 dog cards that I need to make ASAP - but will visit you as soon as I can

You gush away about the dogs and why not when they give you so much pleasure and unconditional love...shame more humans aren't more like animals, i could not imagine a life without pets to share it with and still miss my dogs so much :(

The card is fab, love the pinks and browns and of course the PB image too...in case i don't get chance...have a brilliant weekend!

Hugs
