Good Boy

Hi guys, is it raining where you are? it is here yet again, I don't think one week of summer sun is enough to call it summer do you?
still it's a good excuse to make a card,
it's a card for a fella as it's my nephews birthday soon, and I'd totally forgotten about, it Oh should I admit to that lol, any way here it is ,
I've masked Edwin with the tree but cut out the dog to give a slight 3D effect, all the images have been coloured with copics,
my papers have all been sewn and some have been distressed with my distress tool, can you see my latest Sissix clock die peeking out, not used as  a clock this time though, but it just goes to show how versatile it is lol,

Simon says stamp ~ stitching
Simply Magnolia ~ anything goes
Magnolia-mania ~ seam
All that scraps ~ good ole summer
I will check to see if it fits any more challenges later,
I must admit having to sit on my hands as I so want to add flowers, cheesecloth, pearls etc lol but don't think he'd appreciate them some how !

Well I must go, I was on here yesterday afternoon when the door opened, I thought oh has my mum come, no it was 5o'clock and hubby was home from work, and there was me thinking it was about 3o'clock,
talk about getting engrossed lol,

Jim and Simon didn't half take the micky out of me for it too lol,

oh! should I have admitted to that as well  or not lol

see you guys later, hugs Liz xx
