Early morning walk

 Good morning, time for a new challenge at 

The theme for this fortnight is 
Father's Day/Special Man.
Today is my hubby's birthday so it seemed appropriate to share the card I made for him.
I've used Lavina Stamps to make the woodland scene, the silhouette of the man with dog is by Nellie's Choice. The sentiments, white embossed onto dark green card are Tim Holtz.
Geoff's favourite time to walk Marvin is early in the morning, often leaving home before it's properly light (alien!!!) and he loves to see the sun rise over the Banks and through the trees. 

Please hop over to Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog for some fabulous inspiration from my lovely teamies, then why not join in- we all have men in our lives and they like receiving cards too!
Thanks for visiting, have a great weekend.

You've combines the stamps beautifully Chris and effective spotlight element, perfect for your hubby. A friend gifted me that stamp and so useful with a family of dog owners.
