Threes a charm at Digital Delights this week

Good morning all

Today I have a cute card for the challenge over at 

This weeks challenge is 

Three's a charm
(use 3 of something)

I used 3 ladybirds on this card

Oh I'm so confused! - still not sure what day it is- again! - my working week has been changed around yet again this week and it really makes a huge difference.  I'm definitely a set in my ways girl!  I was making this weeks card right until the deadline - I had a great idea for this card that I decided wouldn't work - mainly because I hadn't looked at the digis properly - there are 4 dogs in this digi set and I was going to use 3 dogs on this card - but when I looked again - it would have been a mega size card or minature dogs  for that to work lol  - then my mojo just went out of the window!! -I eventually got it together sort of - though my husband said it looked like a card meant for a dog to him - so as I don't send my dog cards to often - I'm really not sure about it!!

I think I'll just plead insanity on this one and start again tomorrow!!
On the bright side - I loved colouring him - just so cute and I gave him a ruff shaggy sort of coat that I think turned out well - I used tiny strokes in four shades then shaded again with prismacolor  pencils and white gel pen and I was really pleased with the way the grass turned out too!  
He looked to me as if he was looking at something - so that's why he got the ladybirds.
