Swirls and Pearls

Another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown begins today and we have the theme of Swirls and Pearls!  We're being sponsored by Sweet and Sassy who also provided the images for the DT.  Be sure and stop by and see all the rules and then enter for your chance to win!

Although we really don't need another four footed friend in the house right now, I'd love to take this precious little puppy home with me!  I colored the image in Copics, added the swirly peppermint paper, the sentiment, then the snowflake and pearl.

Thanks for stopping by.....and be sure and head on over to Tuesday Throwdown!

Lynn, this is one of my favorite SNSS and you have done a remarkable job with it. The peppermint candy paper is the perfect pairing. Like you I could take him home and cuddle him all day long, but two is enough for now. Enjoy your day.

OMG! sooooooooooooo totally UBER-cuuuuuute and such a fab choice of papers etc to go with the adorable stamp! (however, the puppy would like me to tell you he thought it was SQUIRRELS and pearls when he signed up... which is why he's a little bit sad-looking in the photo, lol!) :) :) :)

You find the sweetest little critter images. I love this little guy and what a treasure he would be peeking out of that boot on The Day. Great coloring. Some lovely shading on the boot & puppy. The peppermint border is delightful with this one, and of course you know I love the stitched square with the snowflake trim. Happy wkend, & TFS
