Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #15

My, how the week just flies by when you are off work. You can guarantee, when I'm back in work next week, it will feel like the longest time! It's Sunday though, & time for a new sketch & recipe at Crafts for Eternity! This week, we would like you to,
1. follow the sketch
2. use a check pattern
3. include a dog in your card.

My card is quite simple, I've followed the sketch quite faithfully, & as it's a boys card, I've not done much in the way of embellishments. The image is from the Mary Hall range at Sugar Nellie & the DPs from MME Wild Asparagus. This is a great layout for using up odd scraps! I used orange ribbon & embroidery thread for a bit of texture.

I hope you'll pop on over to the C4E blog & have a look at the gorgeous work of my DT colleagues. If you join in, you could win one of the fab goody bags on offer from Michele.
So is everyone fed up of the snow yet? Even my boys have lost interest in going out in it now. My hubby keeps e-mailing me, saying he is off to the beach in Sydney. But he leaves tomorrow & is due to get home Tuesday night. I'm just praying there is no more snow that could delay him. The boys & I have missed him so much. It will be a bit of a shock to the system for him when he comes back to minus degree temperatures!!
Whatever you are up to, I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for looking!
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Andie!!! Hey what a super great boy card! I love this to pieces. Fabby touch using the button and embroidery floss!
I'm sure you will be thrilled to have hubby home, it is always so hard to do it all by yourself when the kids are a little as yours.
Hope you are keeping warm!
Hugs, Dena

This is lovely Andie, perfect boy card and the check papers are excellent with it. Sure you will be glad to have hubby home and hopefully with no holdups! Don't know if I would be any good on my own for 2 weeks, your a real martyr! Hugs
