Sweet Stampin' - 4-legged friends

Our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is '4-legged friends' - nice and easy :o)  We're sponsored by Whimsy Stamps who are offering one lucky winner 5 digital stamps of their choice, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who is providing a £10 voucher for her fab online store.

My card is one that my mum asked me for - it's for a Sheffield United fan...

 

I've used Football Maxwell from DigiStamp Boutique - perfect for paper pieced football shirts, which is what I've done with him.  I coloured the rest of him with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are Pink Petticoat, printed onto linen card and lightly distressed with Tea Dye distress ink.  The scalloped borders were cut with an MFT die, the corners were cut with an inverted corner punch - they're the 'left-over' bits.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Dex is all better now so no more cuddles for mummy!  Hubby has made himself feel really awful by going back to work.. I hate to be proved right lol.  He admitted yesterday that lots of people at work said he didn't look well enough to be back.  He's now back to huddling under a blanket shivering and coughing, so it looks like being another fun weekend in our house!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far :o)

  27. Hi Lisa, fab card - great image and love your layout.

    Poor mummy not getting anymore cuddles! But nice that Dex is better.

    It's not nice being proved right when it comes to someone else being ill, but maybe it's shown hubby that he isn't well enough to go back? I would find it very difficult not to be saying told you so now - which is mean, as my hubby wouldn't do that to me, he just wouldn't have let me go in the first place. He's been known to take the car keys off me when I've been struggling to get into work!!!
