Harry the Stuffie Gets Happy Mail

Can you believe March is done and gone already?  I don't know where it went, it just flew by for me. April means another challenge at Making Memories Crafting and this month we have a colour inspiration as the challenge theme.  It's a very pretty colour palette which ranges from a powder blue to a very soft lilac:
Our sponsor this month is Scrap n Dipity and they have a fab selection of digital images and some pretty papers.
For my card, I decided it was time to dig into that large pile of Stampingbella stamps I have. With us moving, I barely stamped beyond May of 2016 but that didn't stop me from buying them. This little guy is Harry the Stuffie Gets Happy Mail and I decided to try the dotting technique for fur texture. It's ok but I definitely need more practice.
Well, time for me to wrap it up and get some supper cooking! I've been trying to cook more, eat out less and overall make a serious attempt at being healthier. Who knows... maybe exercise is the next thing!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
