dance little lady....dance [and Monte]


All Dressed Up Challenges are one again, I am playing with a
cute image called Christmas Skater. Polychromo pencils were used,
flowers cut on the silhouette cameo and a bit of stickles added to the image, which was fussy cut.

Our challenge is up and running and  if you have an
All Dressed Up image we would love you to join in at
All Dressed Up Challenges

This morning's hot and humid walk into the park with Monte, in some photos he is absolutely buggered as it was toward the end of our hour walk..he has his favourite watering hole/pond where he loves to just jump in and out..


 Can you see me?

 nearly home
 needing a rest..
5 minute revival
 ahh home at last..

What a cutie that skating girl on your card.

Your card is gorgeous with the bright colors. That image is just too cute. Monte is just getting so big. I added some pictures of my cats after you posted your comment of their "lion cut" hair cuts... now they look so small.

What a lovely card did you make Annie, beautiful colored girl and I love the details with glitter. It makes the card look very festive. I love the layout from this card too, it's feminine without looking too sweet.
Beautiful area for walking with Monte and great to see how he loves water. Doesn't he jump in your pool when you are swimming there?
Greetings Miranda

Chris said...

You've designed such a pretty setting for this sweet skater Annie, fabulous pencil colouring too!
Beautiful photos of Monte on his walk, thank goodness for the water holes to cool him down a bit- so difficult with dogs in the heat, the dozy animals still want their walk even when it's too hot for them (and us!) The weather is a tad different here...a very soggy doggy after her walk today and copious amounts of muddy towels to wash!

Super colouring. Monte looks like he enjoyed his walk. wish I could skate. Nearest I ever got was roller skates. Hugs Mrs A.

Carol L said...

The little skater on your card is so pretty, and you've embellished it perfectly! I suppose Monte needs all that exercise being as he's a pup, but he has wonderful surroundings to explore and enjoy! What a lucky pooch :)

Marjan Küppers said...

I really like these stamps, I owm two of them. Especially this girl.
You made a really great card with her! Beautiful and feminine!
And the heat, not my cup of tea. Lovely pictures of Monty. His favourite pool looks a bit muddy though.

Valerija said...

Annie this card is stunning. Love the image. Wonderful pictures of your dog too.

Mia said...

What a beautiful card, Annie. I lllllove the cute image and your great coloring. I think I should start using my Polychromo pencils more often.
As for Monte, he seems really tired! Oh he is handsome! Hugs to you and Monte, my dear friend.

Bunny said...

Love your little dancing card. She's colored so beautifully.

I saw a dog last week that looked exactly like Monte. He had a most beautiful coat that really shined. The owner said she gave him fish oil. I had to go home and look it up to see if it was okay to give them that. Apparently so. It felt like silk too. Maybe I should take some. [Bunny]

Linda Simpson said...

This is gorgeous, I do love this image and your beautiful layout. Monte sure is growing and looking handsome as ever.

Crafting Queen said...

Lovely card, your dog is adorable.

Christine Alexander said...

Annie, OMG what a great post both with the card and those darn cute pics of Monte.
your little skater is adorable and love the red and grey colour combo.
Monte looks like he's having so much fun even if it is a little hot :)

Ans Gilbert said...

Very pretty card with the beautiful image, did he jump into the pool when you came home?

Leslie Miller said...

She's so pretty, Annie. Delicate and feminine, and a beautifully designed card around her. It looks like a beautiful place for a nice, long walk with Monte! Pretty sure Wally and LuLu couldn't handle your heat without frequent dips in the water. Heck, I probably couldn't handle it, either!

Heather said...

Beautiful!! The image is so pretty, as is your coloring! Such a great layout, too! Thanks for playing with Di's Digi Designs.

Mac Mable said...

What a darling of a card and as always Annie your colouring is amazing x. Happiness on a card and so feminine and pretty x.
Thank you for sharing the adorable photos of Mr Monte and he sure was shattered after his walk. The walk that you do sure does look fabulous x.

Conniecrafter said...

She is so adorable, love your coloring of her and the use of the doilies and the layering with the flower is such a lovely embellishment to the card!
Monte sure does get some good exercise, our little dachshund use to have to take a few breaks especially towards the end, but he was small enough I could pick her up and carry her until she wanted back down :)

*Vicki* said...

I adore these images so much and you've done a stunning job coloring up this cutie Annie! Monte looks like he had a blast out walking! What a lovely post my friend! HUGS
