A Christmas card of course

So today was one of those days, I had to sit nearly all day, looking out for my very very sick old doggie and trying to force him to rest, but everytime I move  he moves with me, so I decided to go play in the craft room, so he would be forced to just sit, and hopefully fall asleep!

So here is my share .....

On the inside I have created a snowflake border using the Martha Stewart Alpine Snowflake, edger and border punch, the little snowflakes it punched out I added to the flower cluster.  Very small and fiddly but I think added that little extra

Here is a sneak of the inside, I have left it so that you cannot see too much as I have already written inside it, and I just know the special receiver of this card will be reading ;) hush hush  shhhhh!

Bit hard to see from the picture, but the close up below might show a little better, once again with the punched out leftover snowflakes from the border I have clustered and layered randomly, topped with some bling, just to to give the extra texture effect  

and here is my big spotty baby, finally resting / passed out from his meds, he is such a stubborn one, but I love him and his brother dearly and will do anything to ensure he is ok.
Thanks for looking everyone, hope you like the christmas share !TTFN ! Simone oxo
