Evelyn in Paris

Hi Peeps,

Well what a day I've had with this puppy.  Whilst my daughter sat in her bedroom, right next door to the bathroom, and her door was open, Ollie helped himself to the toilet roll and ripped it to shreds on the landing floor.  Apparently she didn't see or hear him.  Then whilst my Son was sitting in the lounge my sister popped an envelope through the door with some money in it and when I first came down the stairs I thought the trail of toilet paper had also gone down the stairs, but nope, he'd eaten the Queen's head on the £20 note!!! The silver bit is still in it and the serial no. so hopefully I cellotape what I have and well the missing inch is in his tummy.  Teenages huh, aren't they just great, too much trouble for them to look after him for 5 minutes. Grrrrrr.

I've just got back from puppy training where he has heeled perfectly and learned a new skill of turning left without a problem and looked like butter wouldn't melt. Good little Ollie, What do you think?

OK little rant over, onto my card. Well the challenge at Make It Colourful this fortnight is "Autumn Colours".  I must admit when the great Zoe showed us the Paris elements they scared the hell out of me but if you look at recent hop where THREE companies came together namely, Make It Crafty, Whimsy Stamps and Little Miss Muffet the inspiration those girls gave us was A-mazing!

I have used one of the scenes that Zoe pre made available HERE and added the Penny Farthing and Evelyn from the Paris Collection at Little Miss Muffet HERE. I really enjoyed colouring this scene, hope you like it.

I added the shadows in on the Penny Farthing after seeing Jane's absolutely fabulous scene.  Jane is an artist and her attention to detail is second to none, well worth a visit.

I remember our last dog eating some plastic bags that I had laid on the dining table...couldn't think where I had put them at first until the next day when we saw the multi coloured poo!!

Martina said...

Oh my God Tracey...the same happened to my daughter lately! She got Euro 50.- for her Birthday and guess who liked the money most? Our cat!! She ripped it of and ate a part...you even see the teeth in the rest of little paper pieces she had left! We also got the piece with the silver bit saved and we got the money back!! So I keep my fingers crossed for you, too!
Love your new elegant card! Wow!

Oh my goodness, your little Ollie has got to be one of the cutest pups ever!!! He looks like a little teddy bear! Bet he's a ton of fun! I have 5 dachshunds and a toy Yorkie (he's only 15 weeks old and is full of attitude), and they're so much fun (and a LOT of work and supervision!!).
Your coloring on the card is gorgeous!!!

Hi Tracy both the puppy and your card are absolutely beautiful, I would give both of them a home if you needed to offload, lol.

My son is exactly the same the times I ask him to do just a little favour for me the reply is ok in a minute that minute never comes I always end up doing it myself, lol,
