Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #99...Cats OR Dogs
Happy Friday everyone!  It is time to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design ChallengeThis time around for Challenge #99, the theme for the next two weeks is Cats OR Dogs.  It is your choice as to which one you choose.  Maybe you'll choose both! 

Here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:

General Information: 
  • While I have to admit that I am definitely a 'CAT' person, these pups were rather cute and just begging to come out and play.
  • Since this theme is pretty open it allowed me to get an extra Christmas card created for this month.  One more card to add to the Christmas Card Pot to help me avoid the yearly Christmas Card Panic.  

    Christmas Card Count to date: 18
Digital Image Details: 
  • Merry Pups:  These guys are just so cute.  You can find the image in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name or watermark linked below.
    • It was coloured in with a combination of techniques.  The pups, their hats and the bow were all coloured with Copic markers.  I added some glitter to their hats.  The present was paper pieced using one of my papers (details below).  The ground and grounding around the image was done with coloured pencils.  I added faux stitching around the image digitally before printing.  
  • The ribbon is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama. 
  • The pennants are made out of a shimmery red cardstock from Michael's open stock scrapbook paper.  
Digital Paper Products:
  • Both the background holly and berries swirl paper and the dark green deck the halls paper are from my Holiday Hoopla collection.
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Merry Christmas With Bow:  This is a great combo with sentiment and image both in the same design.  It can also be found in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name or watermark linked below.
  • This image was coloured in with a couple different techniques.  The ribbon was done with coloured pencils and the rest was coloured digitally.  Additional credits:  The strings and metal ornament tops were created with a layer style from Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper.
  • The sticker on the left hand side is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama.
Paper Products:
  • Matting behind sentiment is from Michael's Recollection's cardstock, red.
Paper Products:

  • Image, sentiment and card base: Michael's Recollection's cardstock, white.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...  
I really hope that you will join us sometime during the next two weeks.  Don't forget that along with all the typical rules that apply to the majority of challenges out there (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules), you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise).  We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images.  If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge. Easy Peasy right! 

As always, I hope that you will also check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration and pop over in two weeks time for the next challenge brought to you by Team Pattieboop.  Oh and don't forget...Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month; so, be sure to pop over today and check it out!

Until next time,
