'Today's The Day'

It's time for the start of a new challenge over at My Time To Craft. Don't forget our challenges are running fortnightly over the summer. I needed to spend time with Nico & I thought the DT deserved some time off after all their hard work this year!

I thought I'd share a picture of my little stinky butt at the beach. He absolutely loved digging & playing in the sand, just hated the wind lol!
He is really funny, because as soon as he sees his lead & harness he knows he is going out & starts getting really excited like a dog would! Nutter!!

Right on with this weeks challenge theme which is.....


blue, pink, green, purple etc....no black, brown, blonde etc!

I decided to use one of Tamara's image from The Stamping Chef. This image was great to colour, the hardest part was deciding what colour to do her hair lol!
