Creative Crew Challenge - Card for a Child

Good morning, and what a change in the weather! its dull and overcast here and im sure we are in for some rain! Mind you my lovely Rocky Bear is glad of it, its much coooler for him and its the first time in 2 days he isn't panting!!! poor boy is not suited to the heat in his lovely black coat. He is settling in so well, we can not believe our luck. We have him booked in to the vets tomorrow evening for a check up and we are currently looking for an obedience class. He is very well behaved already but a little more training can't go amiss.

Well unfortunately since our new arrival im obsessed with cleaning the kitchen and conservatory so keep the allergy reaction to a minimum. So far so good none of us are suffering. As a consequence i have had little time for my blogging and crafting, this is why my challenge card for Creative Card Crew is a day late. I am sorry i havn't been able to visit your blogs over the last couple of days but promise to catch up at the weekend if not sooner.

Some of you will already know its my babys 12th Birthday today, Happy Birthday Ben! We are off to town for a little spend and something nice to eat. My middle son Jamie is staying at home to dog sit!!!

Hope you all have a lovely day.


I made this card using an image sent to me via a RAK i believe it might be an Elzybels image but not certain. Not sure what the papers are either. Sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the presents are a Quick kutz die. The traffic lights are stickers, again not sure what make, sorry. This card was basically made using up some bits and pieces. Hope you like it!

Hope to catch up with you all again later, hugs for now Linda x

Angie said...

Happy Birthday Ben,
Fantastic card,
enjoy your lovely dog,

Elaine said...

Great card!

Glad Rocky Bear is settling in well. The heat isn't great fun for dogs. My girl has been alternating between sunbathing and lying full stretch on the kitchen floor.

As far as training goes - check out clicker training. There might be a class in your area, or you can pick up a book online (which is what I did) - I've found it excellent - no force, and it's a really pleasant (and effective) way to work.

Happy Birthday to Ben!

Angelo said...

Congratulations on Rocky Bear. He looks like a lovely dog. I like rottweilers. Most of them are quite calm and well-behaved.
Nice to have you back in the JCBC challenges again :) Your card using Tanja's sketch is lovely.
Have a great day.
Hugs, Kristin :)
