The lovely Mac...

Yay, I haven't got my negative head on today, and I've managed to craft without too many disasters too :o)




My mum asked if I could make a birthday card with a westie on, for one of her friends.  Luckily for me, Sally-Ann released some lovely images last month that were perfect - this is Mac and I think he's so sweet, and very easy to colour too.  I've coloured him with promarkers and flexmarkers, and used prisma pencils for the grass.  The papers are Echo Park, with Stampin' Up textured kraft card.  The flowers were cut with a MFT die, sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the ribbon, buttons, bow and pearl were all from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Ooh... I think I've talked hubby into getting me the spring Magnolia club stamps for my Mother's Day present - wonder if they'll have come by then?  That is, of course, assuming that he actually remembers to order them!  Sorry for the flying visit, we're just about to eat.  Will be having my usual attempt at catching up with you all later :o)
