The challenge this week at Craft Your Passion is Hexagons.We have the fabulous Simon Says Stamp,The Paper Shelter and Stamp Fairy as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Cockatoo Rules! from The Paper Shelter and coloured him with Copic Ciao Markers.I found an old quilting template amongst my Mum’s old sewing stuff  (that I inherited) and cut different patterns from one of my fave collections.So favourite are they that I try not to use them!This card will be for my son’s birthday so they’ll be staying within my house at least!!:D I created a patchwork effect background with them.The embossing folder I’d been umming and ahhhing about for a while but knowing I had to make something for this challenge it quickly became a must-have!I used a paper photo anchor and bracket for the same paper collection.I pierced a hole in the photo anchor and added a brad.The ‘Go’ sign is from a bag iron on patches my SIL gave me.I stuck it onto the backing piece of card using ultra adhesive tape.Yeah,I know it’s really an octagon but it went well with the image ,I thought 😉

Today is Bonfire Night in the UK.Altho’ I say ‘Night’ we have had fireworks going off most nights since the end of the Summer 😦 My poor doggy is beside herself  – she’s a baby at the best of times!Have to admit some of them make me jump out of my skin,they sound like bombs going off!
Here’s a pic to show what a real baby she is :
Might keep the blanket wrapped around her ears tonight.At least it could muffle the noises for her.The pic quality’s not great as it was taken on Hubby’s iPhone.
Don’t forget to keep your pets safe tonight – altho’ Im sure you won’t 🙂
Thanks for looking

    This card is so fun. Love the bright patterns and the patchwork background. Great colouring of Mr. Cockatoo. I really like the embossing and that photo turn. Both are wonderful details. Hope your dog survived the loud night…poor little guy.
