Ian's card - a clean start!

Hello there lovely blogland people - I'm hoping you're having a good day so far - I'm feeling quite relaxed because although its my rainbows session later we have a promise party tonight and these really tend to run themselves - usually anyway!

Today I've got a card to show you made from some house mouse decoupage from Joanna Sheen - I've made the card for my friend Ian who keeps several rather large greyhounds - so I thought a doggie card might go down well this year!



I made this card using the housemouse decoupage as I wanted to make a new begininings card for the joanna Sheen/ housemouse challenge - well I thought the card is for a birthday - that's often a new begining - and the image depicts a clean start! Well thats my logic anyway!

So I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

housemouse-challenge: New Beginings
joannasheenchallenge: New Beginings
CACBcraftyannschallengeblog: recipe
willowsketchiechallenge - theme - cute
MAWTT:movingalongwiththetimes happy birthday
tuesdaythrowdown: Furry friends
papertakeweekly: A bow.

Thanks for dropping by today and for any comments you choose to leave - it really is fabulous to read your thoughts!

Big Hugs

Rachel xx
