Braveheart Bo

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.

We had an awful day weather wise here in Warwickshire yesterday (I think most people in the UK did) it rained and rained and rained ~ only clearing up at tea time.  There was a 'lake' outside our gates in the road because the drain that is there couldn't cope with the amount of water!

Today I have a Birthday card to share ~ made for a very good friend who just happens to be Scottish.  He and his wife are the breeders that two of our Beardies have come from ~ they show their dogs and every year at Crufts he wears his full Scottish regalia ~ I have photographic proof of this!  So, when I saw this image I thought it was perfect.



There is an awful lot of detail in this image and took me forever to colour it in!

Sweet Little Donkey

Hello everyone out there in blogland  .....

Firstly, I want to say a HUGE thank you to Debby who very kindly pointed out that she couldn't leave a comment on my blog ~ I checked this out and there was definitely a problem.  It worked when I first set up this blog and now it doesn't?  I spent some time checking all the settings and finally managed to get it working by enabling the little window that pops up on most peoples blogs to leave a comment ~ I will never know what went wrong, but I am very glad to have now sorted it.  So, if you have been trying to leave a comment and couldn't, it is now fixed.

Anyhoo, here is my share for today ~ a Birthday card for my Mom and her birthday is today.



My Mom adores donkeys so I thought this image was perfect.  

I have decided my long winded descriptions of how the cards on this blog have been created are a little tedious to read, so I am going to try and just 'itemise' what I have used instead ~ let me know what you think.
