Cupcake Craft Challenge - Childhood Memories

Happy Saturday to you all :O) what a loverly day. I am typing this in a bit of a hurry as we are soon to leave to go to Church. I hope you are all well.


The theme over on Cupcake Craft Challenges is Childhood Memories :O) what a loverly theme, I went with the first thought that came into my head for this, although I did need to find the right image, and Karen from Karens Doodles had drawn the perfect one, just to say LOL it looks nothing like me or my doggy but its the thought (I know what I mean) LOL, anyway heres my photo:-
When I was younger I spent a lot of time with my Nan and Grandad, My Nan has 3 poodles, Lou-Lou, Cindy and Tiger, one was black,one was brown and one was white. I had 2 teddies too(which I still have) called Tiger and Lou-Lou LOL, Anyways I loved loved loved Lou-Lou as shown above she was the cutest and most sweetest little doggy and I remember being young when she passed on too, I spent many an hour in her company! I dont think I'd ever forget her :O) So thats my childhood memory and heres my card:-
The image is called "Maggie and Me - Then" and you can buy it HERE, Isnt it gorgeous :O) I coloured it with promarkers and copics, and added a few embellies, the paper is mme and the sentiment from Penny Black.
Anyways Have a great Saturday Evening I hope to hop later tonight :O) Thanks for stopping by.xxx

Hi Joey, I have been away from my blog for a while, trying to get ahead of myself before our annual holiday which we haven't been able to take because of the volcanic dust! I was supposed to have been in Florida since Wednesday and I'm oh so sad. Still, I thought I would spend this "found time" catching up on my hopping. You have been busy making some really beautiful creations. I particularly love this one (and your accompanying photo - I'm not sure who is more cute - you or the poodle!) Warmest wishes, Lesley
