Good morning crafty friends and visitors

Well, I'm now ensconced in my new, but original craft room, and in the process of labelling what is what etc etc.  I did find quite a few goodies I'd forgotten about but, I have boxes of craft items that I'm sorting on a daily basis.  I aim to do 2 per day but quite happy if I complete one!  If we do get a buyer for our house it all, obviously, has to be packed and moved again.... volunteers welcome to call 😏

Today's card is made for a nephew in law and I'm so pleased I managed to grab a few bits and pieces to put something together for him

The base card is a 6" square with a smaller panel of black card then a smaller panel of tartan paper by Stampin' Up

The spotted flag is the other side of the tartan paper, I love this paper pack

I achieved the textured coat on the dogs by firstly colouring them with a brown spectrum noir watercolour pen then went over it with a very waxy Derwent Inktense pencil in 'baked earth' 

I've had the above Clarity stamp for 3 years and this is the first time I've used it!  The stamps are fantastic quality 

Thank you for visiting today and for your lovely comments on my last post, stay extra safe as there are plenty of people out there not adhering to the rules and regulations by not wearing masks etc, it so maddens me to hear/read about it!
