Polka Dot Happy Birthday

It's been a little while since I got the time to make a card as I'm working a lot more than usual at the moment. It's lovely to be able to relax with my crafting stuff some evenings but isn't always possible. I'm certainly not complaining as it's great to have a job!!
Well, here's the result of my latest efforts...
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday,
got the inspiration from Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge
and I'm entering it for Design Dollies..Birthday
and A Spoonfull of Sugar..freestyle

My feet are lovely and warm as I type this as I'm looking after a little Westie for a week and he is lying on top of my feet while I am on the computer! He runs away when I get the camera out for some reason but if I can catch him sleeping I'll upload a photo..

    Has looking after the Westie made you fancy a dog then or is it nice just to babysit for a while?

    Take care, hugs Tara xx
