Happy days

Back again, two posts in one day, certainly doesn't happen very often! I have had a very happy day today, spent the morning with a lovely friend who I haven't seen since well before Christmas. We spent quite a lot of just chatting, there was a lot to catch up with! We did, however, take Mathilda for a walk around the woods, which took longer than expected as there were lots of doggie friends to greet! She is one friendly puppy! (if a little rough!!! -her manners still leave a lot to be desired! She doesn't quite understand that most dogs don't really enjoy being biffed around the head with a giant muddy paw!)

After her walk she was feeling a little tired so she thought she'd sit on the sofa and watch a spot of tv....
Anyway, back to the card, this weeks challenge at LIM is to make a one layer card with the theme of sport or exercise.  This is my offering! The stamp is by Little Claire, a bit of masking and distress ink and added a touch of glossy accents. Job done! (as my son would say!)
No snow here ...yet!

Hi Chris, just had to stop and comment here as well! Great card, perfect masking but it's your Mathilda who is the real star - well to me anyway! Isn't she just gorgeous!!!

Love the name as well, just wondering how you came to pick it? We've got a couple of kittens (in addition to their mum and our old boy (totally unrelated!)) and they've ended up being called Ewok and Worried - baby names that have just stuck!

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Love the card would be great for any sport fan The dog ain't half bad either ha ha She looks really comfortable but the TV program has obviously got to a sad part in the film, hence the downcast eyes. Or does she know she shouldn't be there. ha ha Happy New Year

Does Mathilda have trouble changing the channels on the remote with those big paws??? LOL Great card and a Gorgeous doggy... who in my opinion just shades it over the card as being the best photo in the post!!LOL
