At last!!! A CARD!

Flippin' Heck! I thought my mojo had emigrated for a while there!
They say that there's always a silver lining to every cloud don't they?
Well it's true in my case, 'coz I've broken my big toe, *OUCH*
BUT! It means I'm more or less confined to my craft room.....(the silver lining). Hee Hee
I wanted to play along in the Peachy Keen challnges for a while,
but as my mojo was missing, I just KEPT thinking about it and did nothing.
Until now!
This is quite strange for me, 'coz I'm on the other side of the counter now that there's a new DT.

My card was made using my favourite PK stamp set PK-277, 'Vivienne and friends'.
It has to be my favourite, 'coz it was made especially for ME by Kathy,
(to cheer me up after my breast cancer surgery, two years ago this month)!
WOW how time has flown!

I tried to make that cute little doggie look as much like Harvey as possible. 
You can see a picture of him on my side bar near the top.
The background is pre-printed on A4 card with the stone wall and clouds.
The trees and two of the clouds are cut from MFT dies.
(I cut the wall so I could slot the tree inside).
The grass is made by the Martha Stewart grass punch.

I'm entering this card into two challenges... 

I will be back tomorrow with another card I made for a friend's birthday.
Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for sticking with me!

Ouch! It's amazing how much we need out big toe for isn't it! Hope it heals quickly, or maybe it knew you needed to spend some time in your craft room to get the old mojo back ;)

Darling card and I can't believe it's been two years already! Have a great week :)

I'm sorry you are hurt, but wonderful that you are "confined" to your craft room - I need to go and do something to get myself confined as well!

Your card is lovely, so happy and just enough whimsy to make the recipient smile smile smile!

I love that this set has dear meaning for you. It's also grand that you honored Harvey in your creation.

Thank you for sharing this with us at Opus Gluei, I really hope you return for more challenges with us!
