Sorry its late....

Ooooops I had to quickly make this as I forgot my brother-in-law's birthday!!!
I used Chap Snoozing from Digistamp Boutique and coloured him with copics.
The papers are K and Company but I cant find a link, sorry.
I used my sewing machine for the stitching and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.





Oh and we went to a fun dog show and Toby was placed second in
'Dog the judge would most like to take home'
Here's a little piccie of him with his rosette.... (oh, and his cute new bandanna...)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
digistamp boutique - anything with a digistamp boutique image
Crafty Anns - Its a Man Thing
Wags n Whiskers - Anything Goes
Delightful Challenges - Stitching (real or faux)
