Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential Challenge



I am really excited about all the awesome creations the DT came up with for Vicki's Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential challenge.  We were to create a Halloween Card without Halloween images.  I chose this adorable little Whipper Snapper Dog playing with toilet paper. He is a RAK from a sweet friend.  I thought he looked like he had mummy potential. I colored him with prisma pencils and added sparkling H20s to highlight.  Come join the fun.  You could win a gift certificate .
I also had the pleasure of meeting my DT friend Darlene (akronstamperdpk) IRL.. We had such a great time..5 hours worth of chatting..LOL. She was in town visiting and we had dinner together.

  6. This is so adorable, it's long been one of my favorite WS images. Every time I go to the LSS I talk to it, & hold it, but I haven't bought it yet...lol....I love the mummy sentiment. And how cool that you & Darlene got to meet!!

  7. Oh Dawn, this made me smile as soon as I saw it!
    Your mummy pup is just too adorable...great coloring too!
    When I was young, living in a very small country village...one of the 'bad' things kids did on halloween was toilet paper houses! Yep, late at night take rolls and rolls of toilet paper and wrap up houses, much to the surprise of the folks living in them! lol I guess there were worst things we could have been doing! lol
    Have a fabulous weekend!!
    Blessings, Maria
