Birthday Brutus

Inspiration for this card came from Marion's biride card at the Muse Challenge.

I've used Brutus from High Hopes and a Penny Black sentiment.  Coloured with pencils, paper pieced his collar, glossed his nose and added some sparkle to his medallion.

The Muse Challenge #39
Stamping Sensations October challenge - all creatures great and small
Penny Black and More October challenge - anything goes
Crafty Creations #244 - sparkle and shine
Stampin for the Weekend - anything goes

We had a gorgeous Autumnal morning ... it rained solid all day yesterday and again this afternoon, so it was a nice wee break!  Ruby-doo loves to get out to our local park to chase the ducks, bad dog!  Bit of a crappy pic, taken by Greggy ... sometimes I wonder how he manages to take some many photos of me out of focus (or maybe it's intentional haha)

And how's this for a fabulous sunset ....
