My Girls!

OMG!! I can't believe it's been so long since I have been here.  I guess I just haven't being feelin' it..know what I mean?? Not too sure I do now but need to start posting some things.  Sooooo here goes! My first post of 2015 is a birthday card our girls gave their Daddy for his birthday.  I tried to color the girls realistically, but as you can see I failed miserably. I think you can kinda get an idea of how they look (can't you??).  You don't know how excited I got when I saw these doggies digis from Beccy Place! (I got way excited!) I always see these cute dog stamps but rarely do you find a hound and then even more rare do you find a beagle!!! - you rock Beccy!!! Our girls are both beagles but I didn't want the same dog twice on the card so I got the beagle and the basset (here) stamps. Shhhhhh, just don't tell Mallie that her image is really a basset, k?
 It's a very basic card, just printed the image on cardstock and colored with my copics (or I probably should say I attempted to color with my copics.  Funny thing is if you don't color a lot, you tend to forget how).  Here's a closeup to make my point, lol:
And a pic of the girls to show you how I attempted to color. It was taken at Thanksgiving and apparently they thought they were getting some turkey too.  The funny thing is we do NOT feed our girls table food so not sure why they were sitting like this, but it made for a great picture.
I'm going to enter this in Beccy's Place January Challenge, it's basically a anything goes, just use one of her images...so I used 2 (just call me an over achiever, LOL).
Beccy's Place: January Challenge
Thanks for stopping by, I'll try to post more often.

Your card is adorable Paula, I love it! I think you did an awesome job colouring both images, they look fabulous against the kraft cardstock.
The photo of your girls waiting at the table for their Thanksgiving dinner is so cute!
Cheers,
Beccy

OH My Goodness what a cute card and I'm sure Daddy loved it....your secret is safe with me Mallie will never know. The lady that owns the quilt shop I work at has three Beagles....I know she would love these digi's. I've never used one so guess I'd better give it a try. Soooo good to see you posting again. Missed you. hugs, Ruth Ann

I am grinning from ear to ear! Should I say they look just like you!?!
Sorry I haven't been around. We are packing for a move. What's worse is that we are moving to a house that is half of the size of the house we live in now. I am excited about our new house on Amelia Island in Florida but it is quite challenging to have to get rid of so much stuff!
I will be back around!!!
Your card is so cute - just like your girls!!!
