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!

Hi Bev

Here at last!!!

Life is a bit manic at the moment so my commenting has gone a bit to pot .. .. but I will be back on track soon.

Loving your card. I made this for one of our Scottish friends last year .. .. but it didn't look this good.

Love how you have replicated the ribbon into your image. Gorgeous colours and all super neat .. .. I love it (as I am sure your friend did).

I hope you are having a good week.

Love Jules xx
