Sketchy Colours Challenge # 18

Hello,  here is a card I have made for the Sketchy Colours latest challenge.  It was a super sketch which I turned on it's side.  The image is one of a couple I bought last year (I think from Annie) & I haven't kept the details as to her name, sorry!  I've paper pieced her and distressed the papers with brushed corduroy whilst the accents and sentiment are  from my stash.
I would have entered this also into the Simon Says challenge and lo and behold, it finished last night!
However, with many thanks from my Challenge Guru Pinky, I can enter this into this weeks challenge over at Oh, Alice.  They are asking for monochrome and distressing.  Thank you so much Pinky :)

Here is my youngest DD with her furry 'nephew' taken on Sunday.  He is such a little sweetie and is now virtually at full size being 9mths whereas here is someone who is still growing..
here is a photo of the one of the rare moments when Murphy actually fell asleep and gave in!  His sleeps only lasted 3 minutes at a time, obviously they were power naps as he was just FULL of energy the whole day!  If you compare the photo on my sidebar, that was him 4mths ago!  It wont be long before he needs a sofa to himself and he is only 6mths!  He and Chester are bestest buds and they play non-stop, somehow never managing to tire him out though!
I have a photo of me holding Murphy but I look like I have had a bicycle pump connected somewhere and someone has madly pumped it up and up and up!  Needless to say, I cannot share that one as I can't even stomach looking at it myself!  Perhaps it's time for the Michelin Man to find himself a female replacement???  Send them this way....

Keryn a beautiful card you should enter it into Oh Alice, monochromatic and distressed. Love the pics, don't know how you keep a dog that size lol. Your daughter is a wee stunner and you are far too hard on yourself.
