Cute and Cuddly

Happy Friday everyone! Yay, it's the weekend!!! :o) What are you all up to this weekend? We have friends coming over tomorrow which will be really fun, we are off to a craft shop in the morning, but don't tell my bank manager lol. I'm sure he must wonder how we afford to eat with the amount of card making things I buy!!

Yesterday I told you I had been colouring a dog that I was going to enter into the combo challenge with Lawnscaping and Wee Memories. Well here he is, it's amazing what a bit of pressure can do for you, I finally got him done!  The challenge is 'Cute and Cuddly'.  I immediately thought of this little dog, SO cute! 

I first cut out a Nestie frame to mount the dog onto, but then when I got out the check paper I wondered what it would look like made into a blankie and then this card came about!  Hope you likey!

I've been really tired lately, I just want to sleep as soon as I sit down to relax, which is no good when I have lots of yummy things I want to make!  I seem to be very behind on so many things at the minute, I really need to catch up so I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their wonderful comments.  I do try to get around to everybody's blogs when they comment, but it's not always possible, life gets in the way.  So, if you've left me a comment and I haven't popped by then please forgive me. 

I'll be back tomorrow with a card for Etsy Inspired Challenge, fun!


Stamps: Lawn Fawn 'Sophie's Sentiments' & 'Critters in the Burbs'
