It's Peachy Keen Challenge #46

Where DOES the time go!!!!
It was only 5 minutes ago, I was posting the previous one!!
Well, it's been a week of more downs than ups here.
I was walking Harvey and Mac Sunday evening when a Staffordshire bull terrier came round the corner and attacked Mac!!! He had him by the throat and as I had the dogs on a splitter lead, couldn't save one without hanging the other!!!
Harvey got itten but thankfully for Mac, the Staffy had latched onto his bone shaped dog tag. It was bent in half!!!!
Harvey needed antibiotics and when I informed the police, (the staffy was not on a lead), they weren't interested and told me to phone the dog warden!!!!! The dog warden insists it a police matter, but when I got back to them, they STILL insisted it wasn't their area!! I'm no further on!

Anyway, enough of that, on to the good stuff..the Challenge!
We have another sketch for you this week...

Good innit?

Here's what I did with it. I'm not 100% about it 'coz I was in the throws of making it when I took a break to walk the dogs and by the time I'd calmed down, I'd lost the plot with it. LOL

Coloured with Copics and I matted the shamrock digital paper onto gold mirri card.
(I must get Lorie to show me how to colour that cauldron properly. I'm not happy with it at all)!

My DT Sisters have REALLY gone that extra mile this time too!

Breaks my heart to read about your fur babies again! Sorry the police were useless. Was the owner anywhere to be found? Hugs to you!

Your card is wonderful! I hope you are all doing better!
Love and hugs, Janice

Glora said...

So sorry to hear about your fur babies! Hugs, hugs, hugs!!!

Your card is beautiful! Lots of Love-Glora

Lorie said...

Oh VIV!! Again, I'm so sorry about all that happened, and so sorry that sweet Harvey got bitten. I'm glad that tag was there to save Mac!! That's such a traumatic experience for both you and your doggies, and I'm amazed that you could finish the card at all after all that! My poor little 3 lb. Oliver would never survive such an attack!!! I hope your fur babies are healing okay from this experience, and hopefully whomever is responsible for policing this type of issue will step up and start doing their job!!!

Your card is wonderful! I love the deep rich greens you used, the scalloped mat behind the image and the wonderful DP you chose! Beautifully done, my friend! Big (((((HUGS))))) to you and your fur babies!

Love ya,

What a horrific experience Viv!! I can't tell you how glad I am they are ok! Over here, attacks like that by dogs are taken so seriously - no one wants to be liable! Wish they'd listen to you over there. :(

On a happier note, your card is simply adorable! I love the leprechaun leaning in over the corner of the card, like he's sharing his special pot o' gold with you!! Love the mat you used, too!! Very pretty!! Love & Hugs, Angelica

Kim said...

bugger! sorry to hear about your run-in. Hopefully your pooch is feeling much better now.

Cute card, I really like that little leprachaun!

Saundra said...

Oh Viv! So sorry to hear about your puppy woes. I hope you can get things cleared up soon.

Your cards is marvelous as always.

Saundra :)

You know how I feel about poor Harvey and Mac Viv, and you as well. It sounds like everyone is passing the buck !~*%$#!%

Hugs to you and the pooches.

This is so darn cute. Your DP is perfect. You did a cute job with the challenge. The placement of the leprachaun rocks.

Viv that story is so heartbeaking. I am glad that your dogs are okay. It is unfortunate that no one is willing to do their jobs. On the bright side of things, your card is beautiful. I love the patterned paper you used. You coloring is also delightful! This is a wonderful creation like always!
