Sweet Stampin Challenge - Dies/Punches

Hi everyone! It's time for our weekly challenge at Sweet Stampin and the theme this week is dies/punches. Once again out came the LOTV image! I adore these little boys with the flat caps on LOL and even better that they now are available in a digi format..so much easier to store. Our challenge at Sweet Stampin has changed now ..we do it 'just for fun' ..so come on and join in!
We had a sprinkling of snow but nothing to write home about but the temperature really dropped last week and it was really icy but now it's really mild and dreary cloud overhead for the past few days. We had a stroll down the beach early this morning and Woody decided he would brave the icy cold North Sea lol well he didn't last long and I think he was glad to get back to the car for a nice towel dry, of course the older and much wiser Ollie just looked at us as if to say 'is he mad????' Well I must dash it's our youngest Grandson's birthday tomorrow and we are popping over with his pressies..can't believe he's 15 already!!! Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Ooh that's fabulous Sue! Love that fabby image and your gorgeous masculine card design. Hope it's not too cold for you over there. We've had a big storm tonight, so it's not at all Summery today. But we have had some lovely sunshine before this. So can't really complain! Big hugs, Wends xoxo

Hi Sue me wonderful little blogging matey.
Oh that card is gorgeous my litle pearly dots queen.
Yes you are right those images are much better in digi format, as I could hardly see the other type to colour as they are so small.
I don't do as much colouring these days beacause of my eyes, but I must explore the new digi ones.
Your colouring of that image is perfect, and he sure is cute.
Brave little Woody paddling in icy water, but there is some thing to be said for the wise old owl Olliebobs not going in too.
Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
Big sloppies for Ollie, and Woody.
I bet Woody has grown some now.
Lots of crafty love. Fairy Godmother Jenny L.

Love this sweet card Sue, the image is gorgeous and I love the colours. Our two are real water pups, Bowie goes into ponds, ditches, piddles and streams and sits down to cool off after running after deer, pheasants or rabbits. Bumble likes to stand in water and just watch!! We arent quite sure what he is looking for but there have been mink in the brooks around us, so we wonder if he spotted one at some point!! Hope you are well and that Hubby is recuperating well xx
