Good afternoon bloggers,

I would first like to apologise for my absence this past week, I have not made any posts and have hardly left any comments for anyone.  Sadly my Labrador puppy Coco passed away in the week, the vets said he caught an infection that got into his nervous system and to his brain and spine, there was nothing they could do to save him.. It is a big loss for myself and the family and we will miss him greatly.. but thankfully he is out of pain now and at rest... So I am trying to look positive on it.. :-(

I would also like to say that I am having a sale of some old cards and craft materials on ebay (seller: kellypotty) where I am donating 50% of sales to Cancer Research.. I will be adding new items daily so please take a look...

And now finally onto my first card of the week, this is one I have made for an order:
I have used the shirt and tie stamp by Funstamps.. I'm not sure of the backing papers as they were out of my stash (which is slowly going down)... I have used cord ribbon and buttons to embellish.. I have coloured the shirt in using promarkers (china blue) and I have paper pieced the tie using same papers as the backing ones..

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking..
Hugs Kelly

Oh Kelly, I am so sorry to hear about Coco. I know how I would feel if It was my Coco. It would have been for the best . You have made a fab card for a male. Hope to see more next week and keep your chin up!
