Birthday Dog


It seems ages (well nearly 2 weeks) since i lasted posted a card, but hopefully things will start to improve, as H from today is doing full-time, last week he was with me more, than he was at school !! - Monday we had to go in with him, Tuesday and Wednesday 9-12.15 and Thursday and Friday 1.45-3.15 !!! I'm also really sorry, as i have not even had the time to visit all of your lovely blogs.

For todays card, i thought i would have a go at a 'Criss Cross Card' and also a play with my new embossing folder 'Bone & Paw Print' - which when i saw it i knew i just had to buy. I've also used some Kraft card (well Stampin Up - Crumb Cake) for the first time and i so love the effect for a man's card. The cake on the tag is the same one with the image - i just masked it off and stamped it.
