A boy’s best friend :)


**Please click on the pic for a clearer view.For some reason they always look a little blurry on the blog page 😦  **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Bingo.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

What an adorable pair these make!My Best Friend by Crafty Sentiments has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and I even went for a furry effect on the pup.Found these fabby papers and kraft card on offer at Every Crafts A Pound – love ’em 🙂 I used my favourite jumbo corner rounder punch at the top for a little extra interest and dragged out an edger punch I’ve not used in a while.Added a die circle and clouds,with a stamped sentiment.Created some texture by wrapping some paper twine around the border panel.

This is for my son’s 11th birthday.He loves our dog and she loves him  Altho’ she isn’t shaggy like the dog here her facial expression and lollopy tongue are very much the same!She also fusses over him the most as he’s the youngest and even tho’ she’s petrified of water she transforms into ‘The Guardian of the Bathtub’ by laying down beside the bath the whole time he’s in it!
