Yappy Birthday

Good morning peeps.
We've had nearly a week of glorious sunshine here, even if there has been a cool breeze, so at least I have been able to get my raised beds planted and sown. The onions have made a recovery after I thought they'd died off and there are some green seedlings showing. Hubster has almost finished the largest and deepest bed so there will soon be another to fill!

Anyhow, the real reason I am posting today is that it is time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week the choice of theme is all mine and I chose -


So we would love to see your creations showing doggies, large or small.
As I type, ours is sulking in the kitchen because he would love to be with me but the windows are too high for him to see out of in my craft room and there is nowhere for him to get up high! He is an extremely nosy dog.
This cheeky pooch from Paper Smooches  reminds me of Max a little, but I've given this little cutie a few black patches!

The sentiment here is from a Stampendous set I bought on my way home from Port Sunlight, as are the paw prints!
I cut balloons from scraps of card using MFT dies and a Marianne one, the central panel, banner and number are also MFT. I'd seen a similar idea for a chubby chum holding the balloons out on the t'internet somewhere and thought it a great idea. Fussy cutting the little paw was rather tricky but worth it. To make the die cut balloons more realistic I added some white gel pen hi lights. The layout is more or less based on the one over at Can You Case it.
Pop over to the main Cardz4Guyz blog for more doggy inspiration and join in.
