Challenge #4 - Reminder "Our best friend"

Hi guys, Myriam here, it´s reminder time!!

The only rule for this challenge is to include the best friend

we can have: our pets!

It could be your dog, cat, fish, bird, etc and even your dream pet!

For this challenge we have two generous sponsors:

First Place will receive 7 images from Bugaboo Stamps

Second Place will receive 4 images from Sweet Pea Stamps

Third place will receive 2 images from Bugaboo Stamps


(Added again because it was left out until Friday and it is too gorgeous not to be seen - thanks to Lori for being a great 2 month Guest Designer and we hope we see lots more of her work).
Lori said: I usually find backgrounds on an image so hard but these images just guide you to try. I teamed it up with a simple punched border.

For my card I used the cat image from Bugaboo. I plan to use it when I am not talking to my husband ... LOL

 (I need one of these Lori - Cazzy x)


I've always loved horses. I think they are super smart animals
with a big heart!
My dream pet is a horse!!

For my second project I did a Easel Card for notes.
I used this lovely digi Regan Kubeceks puppy love from our

My dog, Lara, is the most loyal and funny friend that anyone can wish.. This lovely digi "Mini set dog blocks" provided by our sponsor Bugaboo is perfect to show all that funny faces that usually our dogs use to make.

Hi every one! To my project today, I made a card with my beautiful cat. She is my beautiful cat Bonnie , she is a beautiful young lady, playful and very spoiled . It is the first time I have a cat in the family and has been an adventure.
 In this project I used the beautiful digi from our generous sponsor  Sweetpeastamps.

Apologies to Bugaboo, I should have finished this one last week. I used the brand new Mini Set Kidz Clowns to make this card, it is so cute I couldn't resist. I remembered some freebie circus paper I had that was perfect too. I just kept wanting to add little details, like the ticket, pom poms, twine and button!

I made a detachable pin badge too.

Inside the card is decorated in the same theme. Shown here with the badge detached from the front. I can't have cats due to my family having allergies to them, our dogs like to chase the ones that come into the garden. It would be a fantasy for me to have cats! 

You know I have a thing about cute cat images don't you? Well this cat is so cute I had to show you, I don't think I have coloured it well, but I did my best. The cat image is from one of our great sponsors,  Sweet Pea Stamps and it is called Happy Himalayan by Concetta Kilmer.

Here is another Sweet Pea image,  A maiden and her unicorn by Concetta Kilmer.

Another Bugaboo image, Kidz Boy Puppy which reminds me of my grandson with our dogs. 

I made a frame using the gorgeous norma-burnells-olivia-and-peter-digi, from our sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps, and using the Faber Castell watercolor pencil.

This is the most easy way to use the Digis and it is also beautiful. Just chose the color, print and cut. I used the Puppy-Love--heart-string_p_604.html digi, from Bugaboo Stamps.

Finally, I decide to make a Best Wishes card using this darling digi  Turtles--flower_p_1022.html., from our generous sponsor Bugaboo Stamps. This time I used watercolor pencils, some gems and embellishments.
