I♥ProMarkers Challenge 215- Cats and/or Dogs

Morning all, well just anyway as it is nearly midday in the UK! This week on the I♥ProMarkers Challenge the theme is Cats and/or Dogs.

We are being sponsored by Dies to Die for who are offering a £10 voucher as a prize.

Usually I have no problem creating a cat card! I am a cat nut but yesterday (yes I left it late) I was completely mojoless. Made one horrific card, then coloured the image below but all inspiration was lost, even Pinterest didn't help. Yet today, no problem, card came together just like that, so slightly late here is my card:

Papers- First Edition, New Leaf
Sentiment- Stampin' Up

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers- All Creatures Great and Small
One Crazy Stamper- Anything Goes
Crafty Catz- Animals
Polkadoodles- Animal Magic
Crafty Blogger- Die Cuts or Embossing
My Craft Creations- Anything Goes

Hilda and Hercules from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Now once upon a time Hilda's glasses weren't as good as they could have been. She went to the local dogs home to get herself a small house dog. The assistant being a wily fellow realised that Hilda would be a great dog owner, so he may have insinuated that puppy Hercules was in fact a full grown terrier. I think Hilda is not quite as daft as she might have looked but had already fallen in love with the fuzzy shape of Hercules! Now Hilda gets no hassle from anyone when she is taking Hercules for a walk; small children even look forward to seeing her out and about in the park as Hercules is a big softy inside and more than ready to give a ride or two.

You can find Hilda and Hercules HERE

Happy Birth Spray from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

I'd like to point out that I would never advocate spraying on walls (not least because I'm no Banksy) however if you have access to some little cans then why not go mad on a birthday card! Okay so I am not that good, if it had been me spraying with mini cans the paper would have remained clear and the desk and walls would be splattered, so I chose the next best option, my printer, Dr Digi's Spray Can image and some ProMarkers! But the thought was there! You can find the Spray Can image HERE, and here's the best bit- it's free!!!!!
