Fat or Fluffy?

happy new year 2016 wallpaper     
HAPPY NEW YEAR, Friends and Followers!
   
     Since it's Friday again, we at QKR Stampede have a new challenge for you and our theme is "Feathers or Fur."  We want to see images of animals that have feathers or fur on your cards!  I sure hope curly wool counts as 'fur.'  :-D

     Check out the sentiment!  Most years following the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and New Year celebrations included), this has been my excuse for the 10 pounds I've gained.  But this year, thanks to carefully following the diabetes routine I've been doing for the last 4 months, I had no gain at all!  Woohoo!  I used Digi 15611 "Old Ram."  This time the sentiment is mine.


     I colored with my ProMarkers, then die cut the image with a die from QuicKutz.  The copper paper was embossed with my "Linen" folder and the striped 'paper' is actually lightweight canvas fabric.  Both the ribbons came from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I used my new bow maker to tie the double bow.

Simple! Everyone knows ladies would rather be called fluffy than fat! LOL Very cute, Miss Connie! Love those sad blue eyes, and pretty card design! I hope your Christmas celebrations were extra special. I'm beginning to emerge from this last exacerbation, and hope to be visiting more regularly, soon! Happy New Year! hugs, de
