Card for Uncle Derek

Wowee, it's been a bit of a draughtly day today, though we didn't get the lashing rain that had been forecast (excitable weathermen on telly as usual!)  LOTS of leaves down, hopefully the wind will leave some and let them change colour :(

Ah well, the crappy weather forecast meant I hadn't any plans for today, so had a lovely crafty day and got loads of washing out on the line to dry in between card making ... anyone fancy some ironing?

This card is for my Uncle and features Brutus from High Hopes, isn't he a sweetie!!  Coloured with pencils and some glitter added to his dog tag for a bit of bling.  Central panel popped up on dimensionals and then sentiment (Paper Smooches) also popped up again.

  2. Great card Lynne - I'm sure your uncle will be pleased with it - especially if he's a dog lover! I'm fine thanks - I just haven't had time to do much crafting recently as we were doing some work to the house and decorating in August and then it has been really busy getting settled back into school as I am back to teaching two different subjects at A level (after only having GCSE classes for the past couple of years), as well as a private pupil for A level tuition. Hopefully I will get myself organised to do a bit of crafting this week! Thanks for your concern,

  3. This is just adorable Lynne.

  11. Uncle Dereck is going to love it...


  12. Brutus really is a sweetie. Great card!!! Too cute.

    Oh, those weathermen can get really excited sometimes. You would think the world was ending. :-)

  13. Lynne, this is such a great card! Brutus is so lovable! I love the bone sentiment, too!

    I hope the ironing wasn't too traumatic - I never understand how it multiplies! Though it goes by much more quickly if there's something good to watch on the telly!

    Oh, and thanks for joining in at The Squirrel and the Fox!

    Take care!

    love Mags B x
