BLD - Beach Boy Todd and Summertime Hannah

Our sick puppy went to a different vet yesterday and we received confirmation that he has Puppy Strangles and not allergies. He is on a much bigger doses of corticosteroids and will be in foster care for some time. Left where he started off in life, he would have died last week from this auto-immune disorder that has presented itself. The steroids have caused his appetite to kick into overdrive, so the poor little guy is frantic hungry all the time. Once his facial swelling is completely gone, we can start weaning him off his prednisone.

I'm getting back to being a bit more on schedule and so I have my By Lori Designs post ready on time and on budget!

The spotlight this week is on Beach time Todd and I gave him a nice tan. I can only dream of a nice tan... ;)

I doodled around the outside of the image using a fine tip sharpie pen. I really love the effect.

These fish are from the Summertime Hannah digital image which I cut using Gimp - a freeware image editing program. My daughter showed me how or my images would be a real mess! :D I coloured them using STICKLES! The glitter in the stickles makes the fish look like they have scales and it is DIVINE!

I printed off several of the star fish that come with the Summer Time Hannah image to embellish her after I covered them with Stardust Stickles so they would SHINE!
