 Hello everyone,

So did you read my title, you haven't seen that before....because..Ta is my debut on my new DT challenge blog AS YOU LIKE IT  so a big thank you girls for inviting me, and putting my name forward, I was so thrilled to asked by Annette from Netty's cards  I didn't really take much thinking or decision making..I'm in. 

So our challenge this fortnight is..Pets..

I had to make a scene, my cat does this thing with me and it really terrifies me as I'm not sure if she will go or not..
So I started with my sky and grass...

Added a row of houses over the road[ you get where I am going..]

Put up a fence..and forgot to colour my houses and they were glued down..

Coloured the houses over the road, my heart started to pound at this stage..

Did a bit of pencil blending..and here she is, just to get my blood pressure up..

So the scene was set...

Nice and flat for posting..

Put Holly in place, now I'm sweating..She sits there and eyes up the little black over at house sits under the car and stares back..I know they play at night as I've seen them through my security camera, just don't like a stand down on such a busy, busy road..

Then the final touch, or really an after thought was to add the two tree branches to make depth as I have a tree in my front garden..

I spend my time hanging out the window saying, Don't you dare!!

So there we go, shows us your Pets over HERE would love for you to come on over and join in..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..

Congrats on your new DT job, Chrissy! Such an honour to be asked for!
Gorgeous creation and I hope your blood pressure is well again. Can imagine how you felt when you saw the onloured, but glued houses.
But the way Holly is sitting will not be good for your blood pressure!
Have a great day!

So glad to have you on the team Chrissy, it's another really good one. As for your card, it is wonderful! I kinda guessed we would see Holly. I had no idea she was such a tease! BTW, the branches are brilliant!
