Luke's birthday

Oooh, a whole afternoon of crafting!!! I printed off some images, coloured them, cut them out, picked some papers and they've been put on one side for when I have some time later in the week.

I did manage to complete one card though, I wanted to get this done as it's my lovely grandson Luke's 15th birthday in a couple of weeks' time. They've just had a puppy, sister to ours, and they have an older dog too. I thought this image was perfect, it will certainly give him a laugh!


I managed to put the DP on skewiff so a rescue job was in order. I cut the front off and made an easel card - not the first time I've rescued a card that way!



I've used:
Image is from Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers and cut out with one of Nestie's Label dies, as was the brown mat behind
DP from Monti's Pixel Playground Dog and Cat set
Yellow and brown card for mats from stash
Card Candy coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment computer generated

Fab card - I've just swapped places with you! Had my brothers lab puppy for the afternoon - now hoovering and mopping behind him! Worse than having a baby!!! Glad I'm not the only one who does "rescue" jobs - yours is brilliant BTW! x
