3 2 1 at CraftyCatz!

Hello, I'm back again - but I promise it's a shorter post than earlier!  If you haven't seen it - my Polkadoodles DT card is below together with my very first attempt at a tutorial that is also on the Polkadoodles site. If you get chance, I'd love it if you could have a read through the tutorial and let me know what you think - does it make sense? is it too long? too many pics? too easy? Thanks!

But it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz - and we had some fantastic entries last week (and such a lot!) with our anything goes challenge! This week our challenge is '3,2,1' - so we want to see 3 of something, 2 of something and, yes you've guessed it, 1 of something! Easy!

I've used - 3 buttons, 2 papers, and 1 image and I've used LOTV stamp 'Yee Haa!'

I've coloured the image with promarkers and copics

Aren't they just the cutest pair! When Tilly the Dog was a puppy and Jack was 6 years old. I used to come home to find the dog dressed in football shirts, Jack would be getting her to ride on his skateboard, playing football, etc.!  All little boys need a dog really! (Especially one as daft as ours!). And now my cute little 6 year old boy has been abducted by aliens and they've left a towering, continually hungry and grunting male that vaguely resembles him, I have to say that Tilly the Dog still gets the most attention from him! 
The backing papers I've used are NitWit ones, with some added stitching (although don't look too closely, it went a bit wonky!).  I've added a Sizzix die cut star and buttons from stash!

So do have a look at the fantastic inspiration from the DT - and join in with your own 3,2,1! 
Back soon,
