Whimsy October Release - Crissy Armstrong - Christmas Spaniels

This is a scheduled post as I'm currently journeying down south to say goodbye to my Dad in his final hours.

This should have been 2 cards and I have another spaniel from the set all coloured up, but I didn't get time to get the card finished with everything that's happened in the last few days, so I will have to share that one separately at a later date.

So.....Spaniels....don't you just love them? We used to have a black English Cocker Spaniel years ago and she was soooooo pretty, so when I saw the Christmas Spaniels from Crissy Armstrong I just knew I had to colour these up.

I was lucky enough to spend some time with the super sweet Crissy at the Whimsy Stamps Craft Retreat and she told me she loved Spaniels too and would love to have one. I think you can tell by the way she's drawn them.
Spaniels come in lots of different shades so I chose a different colour for each Spaniel and for this one I chose a blonde colour.

I've coloured her with distress inks and paired her with some lovely Whimsy paper from the Christmas Cheer pad and some smooth white cardstock matted with a little deep red.

The sentiment is from the recently released Scripty Occasions and I finished off with a small snowflake cut with the Layered Snowflake dies, and covered with plenty of Glamour Dust and then a few red gems.

If you're in the UK or Europe you can purchase most of the supplies I've used over at Dies to Die for.

That's all from me, I may be off the radar for a while, but I hope you'll understand.
