Muddy Paws Challenge

I think I really challenged some of you with these ribbons, I know it was a little tricky for some.  But that's what a challenge is all about, and you have all come up with some magnificent cards and projects.  It really amazes us how some of these creations are made.  Well here goes....... I hope you are sitting comfortably as there is a lot to see.

Before I start I should tell you I took the cards to our local woods to photograph, and the lighting depended on which way the tree above me was being blown by the wind!!!  I almost jumped out of my skin when a dog came to investigate what I was doing!

Beryl made this wicked canvas featuring her westie Harley at 4 months old, isn't he gorgeous. The background was created using Tim Hiltz Distress Inks - never tried those.

The two cards above are also from Beryl, I love the pink one.

Carol made this card with a photo of her dog Neo.  He is a black lab and was 15weeks old. Just perfect.

Carol also made the 2 cards above.  The stamp used is called "Uplifting Occasions"  it caused a giggle in the office.

These 2 cards were made by Jan, the taggy ribbons at side of the top card have been threaded through eyelets, so it is like a hinged book.  Very ingenious Jan.

Linda's card features her cat Wolfie.  Wolfie lives in Scotland with her 2 humans, she leads a very busy life looking after them and ruling the neighbourhood as she is the boss cat!  She is nearly 2 years old.

Linda said she took a little while to work up inspiration for these cards.  They are fantastic Linda.

This is Margarets first challenge with us, her three cards are above.  The pop up card is great fun, with the cats peering through the greenery.  Hope you enjoyed working with the ribbons Margaret.

Marjorie also struggled to find inspiration, then "ping" she goes and makes 4 cards.  This was the first time she had thought of making a childs card.  Great idea to cut the paws out from the ribbon to use on the cat card.

I had seen Natalie's cards on her blog but was getting rather upset that maybe they had got lost in the post.  But they were delivered on Friday.... phew!  They are gorgeous.

Natalie also sent in this decorated box (the white ones we send the challenge ribbons in).  This a really good idea, maybe I should include an empty box with the next challenge - what do you think?

Tina (who was not last!!!!) altered CD. Brilliant.

This card features Tina's dog Poppy her mini labrador who is almost 2.  Poppy is with her friend Brodie who she loves, Brodie is almost 3 and a westie. 

Tina also made this fab box..... with a surprise

What a delight, it's amazing.

Tracey and Paul came up with another stunning pair of cards.

Wilma sent this enchanting cat card, I am sure it follows me around the room!

Wilma also sent in the stunning album, I first saw it on her blog and could not believe she had made it for the challenge.  Do you want to have a look in side?

The album is about her 2 wonderful dogs, Brodie 14 years and Domino 11 years.

They are never happier than when they are near water!

Domino - Dogs Laugh with their tails!!!

Lets play hide and seek

Wilma I am speechless, thank you so much it is a work of art.

We are still waiting for a few more to arrive, I gather Maggie is in New York and Sue has just got a new puppy and seems to have no time for crafting!!

Thank you all so much for the time, creativity and love you have put into this challenge - will I be able to inspire you as much with the next one?!
