one man and his dog

Well hello!!!

boy it seems like a long time since i was on here! what a week. My dad had a cardiac arrest, well actually two, and has been in the Freeman hospital back in England and was unconscious for a while but he is making great head way so I am back! Had this card sitting on my desk since last sat so now he is on the mend and looking like shall be home this week I thought I would get it stuck down and blogged! Heck it was even supposed to be his bday card!!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-

Magnolia-licious Challenge blog- Celebration
Simply Magnolia- Shabby Chic
Midweek Magnolias- Anything goes with a Magnolia image
Magnolia Forever challenge blog- Your fave stamp
Craft Heaven Shop inspiration and challenge blog- Bingo- stamp, distress, pattern papers/dies pattered papers, twine/ sentiment, distress , dies/ lace , stamp sentiment

So for this challenge I used the cutie that is Edwin with Tin Tin the dog. I had been waiting to get my paws on this stamp forever and finally it came back into stock and this is its first outing!

I coloured Edwin and Tin Tin with Distress Inks. The papers which I had to hunt for as Kaisercraft discontinued them are called 'Furry Friends'. The are brilliant!!!!

I used dies from Magnolia, Go Kreate, and Tim Holtz. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. The lace is from Live and Love Crafts. The rhinestones are from Kaisercraft. I distressed the edges and then edged them with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo'.
