Life On The Ocean Waves

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Bonnie.  Glad to have you along.  Hugz all round.  Woke up this morning to sunshine.  Wow, that's a rare thing.  Rushed out, only to nearly end up on my rump!  Sunny but cold!  That was as unexpected as the sunshine!  I know it's winter but it's been pretty warm here.  I think cold and sunny does top grey and wet so I shall just enjoy it while it lasts.  

Over at High Hopes Stamps the challenge is Furry Friend so I inked up this fun Andy and Patch stamp and went CAS.  

I stamped Andy and Patch on a piece of card and coloured using watercolour pencils.  I used a black sharpie on the frame and cut out my image.  I masked the card and used Dreamweavers Waves stencil sponged with Stormy Sky distress ink then added the stamped image.
