New card whoo hooo!!!!

Curse my hubby having last week off - I hardly got anything crafty done but I did finally get this one finished last night. No challenges in mind as hubby nicked the computer off me most of the week so I'm a bit like a fish out of water at the moment and I've got no idea what is going on in challenge blog land so if anyone thinks of anything that this can go in to - just shout at me and I'll love you forever!!!
Anyway onto my card. I've used a digi image from my buddy Stitch called China Doll. It was one of her last ones from 2009 and she is just getting back into the swing of things now as she managed to get herself the shingles and it affected her eye so she's been in a lot of pain lately and not been able to do what she loves the most, (or the housework by all accounts!!!) making digis for everyone to use on their projects! I had loads of fun making this one as I got the glitter out as well - one red sparkly dog coming up (and the cats too) and the old trusty Sakura Glaze pen. I had forgotten I'd got it actually but I'm sure I'll be needing a new one again soon now that I've rediscovered it as I'm using it loads again.

Hope you like it anyway - oh and guess's snowing again!
Take care everyone and watch out later for Digital-Ink Co's new challenge.
Okay thanks to Susan for letting me know about these two (looked for the others but couldn't find them - think my eyes have stopped working properly hehee), so here goes.
I'm entering this into Incy Wincy Designs Pink/Red and black
Aly's Sunday challenge and it is uncanny how similar her sketch is (twist it a bit) to my card with out me even seeing it before.
Thanks Susan - you're a star hun!!
