A cuddle makes it all better...


I'm here on this lovely sunny day to show you a card using an image from the new July release at All Dressed Up...   This image is called 'A Cuddle Makes it All Better' - and is available HERE

I decided to use the girl and dog without the sentiment, so I could use my own.  It's easy to alter a digi image in Paint.Net  (a free downloadable programme).  If you need more info, drop me an email.

I also tried to give the little doggie some texture - a bit terrier like??  I've been asked a couple of times to do a tutorial on this texture..  Let me know if you'd like me to.

Card Recipe:
Image - All Dressed Up - A Cuddle Makes it All Better
Colouring - Copics
Dies: Lil' Inkers Stitched Square (probably my most uses die EVER), and Memory Box Stars
Sentiment: done on PC
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Paper - scrap from stash
White Gel Pen and Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Glue for dots
Gems and glitter - from stash

Here's a peek at the other new images...  I can't decide on my favourite this time...  I think they ALL are!  They're all available at the All Dressed Up shop HERE.
