A Boy's Best Friend

Good morning all.
It's been a very sunny week here, but I do appreciate that some parts of the UK have had an awful Spring Bank holiday.
Anyway it's time for a new challenge at Fantasy Stampers.
We are a STAMPING challenge so that needs to be the main focus of your projects, sadly digi images cannot be included in our top 3.
This week we would like to see projects on the theme of -


Here is my card.

I've used a magazine freebie from Lady Bug Crafts I've had for quite awhile. The little boy could be my Grandson, except for the red hair and our dog Max. Max is sulking as I write this because I wont let him up on my knee, as during his walk he managed to get some sheep poo on his neck and wont let me wash it off. Looks like a two man approach is needed!
I look to be following a bit of a theme with my layouts here, I do like to use the die cut window, it gives that little bit extra interest on a simple card.
This time I used a snippet of NitWit DP behind the aperture and cut a couple of scrap strips edged with a MS edge punch to create the grass, coloured with Copics to blend in the Copic coloured fussy cut image.
The banner is made by extending a single ended die from a MFT Blueprints set and stamping with a simple Happy Birthday.
That's about it then from me. Please check out the rest of the fab DT and join in this week.

I'd like to join in over at -

  1. Love this card Julie. The circle apperture is a great idea and would be really useful to use up smaller pieces of backing papers.
    Our sunny weather seems to have come to an end today but we have been lucky enough to have a fabulously sunny half term week.
