Well I'm not quite sure where the last week disappeared too. My Father-in-law was rushed into hospital last Sunday evening with Pneumonia and was in a pretty bad way. They managed to get him stable but he's been on the High dependency ward for the last 7 days with little improvement until yesterday, when the consultant said he was finally improving. My card today is one that I was asked to make for a 70th birthday for a lady who loves dogs. It's an 8x8 card and I used Joanna Sheen's Giordano Puppies and Kittens CD for this one. I found some textured card for the matting that matched the colour of the little dachshund on the topper and also cut out a die cut dog (die from Tattered Lace). The flowers are from Heartfelt Creations and the Greeting from All Occasion Dies.

Hopefully this week will less hectic.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

It's a wonderful card Sue. Sometimes crafting can help reduce stress during tough times. It was good that you had a commission project to work on. Lovely work as usual.
