Woof !

Evening everyone,
Its been a busy few days  ! I am looking forward to the weekend .My daughter ,Sara, is coming over on Sunday from Barcelona until Wednesday ,so it will be nice for her to have a break from her work and wonderful for us to have her home to spoil hehe. The weather over here has been fabulous this week,so l hope it continues over the weekend.
 I started a new James Pattereson book last weekend, and its so exciting, but I have not had time this week to read anymore, so l am hoping to get in the garden this weekend and enjoy my book...

The card l am showing you this evening is a 6x6 card blank. I have used some distressed brown DP and a blue DP for layering and matting.l used promarkers to change the colours of the kennel and the 'woof ' die cut.l also used a dark blue and  a white pencil for outlining. The coredinations brown card stock has been put through an embossing folder and lightly sanded afterwards. As l wanted this to have a rather male look to it,l have added 4 staplers just for decoration... All dies have foam pads to give them a 3D look and all materials are from my stash.
I would like to pop this card into the following challenges...
Wishing you a lovely evening and good start to the weekend
