A letter for ME?

Hi everyone!
Are you freezing? I am! Brrr
Don't know how I'd get on in the northern states of the USA!!! 
It's VERY Siberia-like there at the moment!

We've had the usual dusting of snow, now you see it, now you don't!
It's rubbish.

What to do? Play in your craft space/room.
That's precisely what I did and I made this.....

I've gone all pink again! I don't even mean to, it just knda happens all by itself!
At least I have a Bluebird. LOL
The image is a digi from Sugar Nellie called 'Picket Post'.
Coloured with Copics (must practice more on fur) on a Standard Spellbinder's circle.
 Then I used foam pads on the 'Heartfelt' DP from an 8"x8" pad 
by LOTV and Raspberry Road Designs, framed with flowers from my stash.
The sentiment and tiny heart is from Clearly Besotted's 'Design a Tree' stamp set.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges.....
Sugar Nellie's challenge  #120 'Anything Goes'
Freshly made sketches#169
Here's the sketch...
 I tweeked the orientation a little.

Well, I have to get ready to go to my hospital appointment , 
so I'd better stir my stumps and hopefully, be back shortly with another offering.

Pretty in pink with just the right amount of blue! Super cute card and I love the background paper. Great coloring too!
You'll have to come to Texas to warm up!

Lovely work. You colour fur very well. I like the pink crackled bg and those flowers.

Although there is snow on the ground it is warm enough to not wear mitts. What a relief from a couple of days ago. It's actually going to be plus 2 degrees C tomorrow.

Just so daring, the cutest little scene. Love that background paper the pink is so pretty and your flowers look so nice. Nice how you framed it all in and love your coloring. Have a super week end.
Hugs, Pat/♥

Heartmeltingly adorable! Oh, how I love this! Pretty paper and super cute image. Your coloring looks pretty fabulous to me. 100% chance of rain this weekend, so I'll probably be in my stamp room at least part of it. Poor me.

Gorgeous! The pink suits the card Viv more so with the crackling ;)
And what is wrong with the fur colouring??? I like the dotty style of adding colour!

That is the power of pink Viv - it just kinda sneaks up on you and before you know it, there's another pink card on the desk!

This pink DP is GORGEOUS and the flowers frame the cute image so beautifully :-)

Big hugs, Kat x

This is just so beautiful. Your fur needs no work from my view. He is simply fluffy and adorable. I just discovered Sugar Nellie about a month or so ago. Loving the cuteness.
