Less is More - Week 120 - Theme

Hello everyone - well it's back to thermals!!!  It's been so cold here today - bright spells and heavy rain but a bitter wind.  When are we going to get some warmth???  Anyway to warm myself up I shut myself in my craft room to complete my Less is More challenge which, this week, is:

This week is theme week at Less Is More and we hope you enjoy the choice.  We know you will come up with some fabulous creations.  We want to see cards with
Cats and/or Dogs 
We want to see cards with your favourite pet or both. We know you will all use your imagination. 
I've used Swirly Whirly Cats from Little Claire - aren't they cute?  They've been coloured with chalks and I've added Atyou Spica for a little glitter.  I die cut the MB Grand Gothic Arch from a piece of card and discarded the die cuts but then die cut it again from some thin veneer I had in my stash so it looks like a wooden window.  I've backed it with some b/p from my stash and mounted it all on a square card blank.  The sentiment is called Ticketed from Stampology and I used my SU oval and scalloped oval to punch it out (with more veneer to mat it).  The final touch were some pearls from The Hobby House.

As is my wont..........I actually completely misread the challenge - I saw that great picture of the dog and cat but then saw the word thought any pets would do!!!  Yes, I know, senior moment strikes again!!!  lol  Anyway I had been itching to use my new Bella with Teddy stamp from Wild Rose Studio.  
The image has been coloured with Faber-Castell pencils and was set in the aperture die cut with square nesties.  I then added a frame using the square and scalloped square nesties.  The sentiment is part of the set.  I thought it was a shame not to share as it's such a cute image and I would definitely like Bella as a pet!

Thanks for dropping by - hopefully the weekend will be better; weather wise.
