It's Those Crazy Dogs Again

Good morning and happy Saturday. Today we are flying home from Spain - it seems really strange to be saying this as of course as I'm typing it we haven't even been yet lol. I'm very happy to be sharing my second Country View Crafts Tim Holtz inspired piece for this month - a very special birthday card.

It's a very simple background with my favourite Halftone and Rings stamps, Distress Inks, and bones from the Crazy Dogs stamp set.

Now the fun part, lots of stamping and cutting, colouring and Stickeling!
I've used Crazy Dogs stamps, and dies.

Just look at that face :-)
There's lots of Glossy Accents on the dogs eyes, nose, and tongue. A wet nose and tongue = a happy dog!

The presents have been coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Stickles. It seems like ages since I've used these. I know you can use a heat gun to dry these, but I still like to dry them overnight so that I can assemble in safety ;-)

A 70th birthday is definitely something to celebrate! I like that there's always the perfect word in this Celebration Words die set.

I would hate him to forget how old he is, so I've added a nice big 70 cut from the Wordplay die, and added some quilling strips as balloon streamers.
There's still time to join in our challenge, so I hope to see your across there.
Have a great week, and thanks very much for looking xx
