DOGGY CHRISTMAS CARD FOR SOMEONE SPECIAL
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge this week because I feel like I've been negleting it. I've been busy doing Christmas card orders, but I cannot express how grateful I am to Hazel and her blog, because if I hadn't discovered her and the blog, I wouldn't have all my own personal cards done yet! I've also re-discovered knitting and I'm making little Christmas puds that go on a well known round chocolate treat. They look lovely, the link for the recipe is here http://appletreecrafts.blogspot.co.uk/2011/12/free-knitting-pattern-mini-christmas.html. They are so quick to make, I'm doing them for all my family and special friends.
Back to the card....this is for a very special friend I met years ago through work. Sadly, she moved away and made a new life Lincoln way, setting up her own dog-grooming business. Hence, the card had to have a doggy on it! I've made a simple easel card, using some snowflake and dotty papers on a silver base card. Bit of stripey ribbon, and die-cut doggy courtesy of my Cricut! I love him!
Last minute entry in the challenge but fingers crossed for a win because the prize is lovely!
