Hello, I "ruff" you,

**** *** **** ** **** ****.
First person to fill in the blanks to the song lyrics and name the band in which I am attempting to adapt my darling doggy creation to wins a surprise!!
So, finish the song, name the band, do it first, win a little sumthin' sumthin'.
I encourage you to leave a response even if there is already guesses because they could be wrong and maybe they wont want the surprise which means I go to the next on the list.

G'day folks,
it's Sunday in OZ and that means
it is time for a new challenge at

it is not too late for you to hop on over to

I just deleted my boohoo rant and am back with a few tender morsels of details. This creation was made with the adorable Wilma from Magnolias Raising the Ceiling Collection, I bought it at Waffles store, you can find the link above. I masked off the rose that she has in her mouth so that one lovely pooch could dominate the creation. The papers are Basic Grey, the image was coloured with distress inks and cut out, popped on top of a circled image that was shadowed in Faded Jeans, I felt that in itself was enough, I wanted those rosey cheeks to pop!! The flowers are from my stash, the buttons are from the super duper Princess Kristy, and the lace and gingham is from my stash. Did I skip something? I hope not!!

Stephanne OMG - I coloured the little magnolia puppy with the rose in his mouth the other day, same colours, with rosy cheeks (but not as good), and stuck him on a doily too....then I decided I hated my colour choices, so he is waiting to be revamped - this on the other hand is gorgeous!!!!

OMG, who could resist such an adorable face. You have managed to color this pup up to perfection. I can almost smell that new puppy smell. Sounds like your using every minute of every day up! Sounds like house hunting might be going well. And Mom is coming for ten days, that will be fun. Try to get some rest.
