An early good morning

Well. I'm burning the midnight oil!  At last I have managed to make a card.  I couldn't miss this one because on the 1st July my sweet hubby and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary.  I was stumped as to what to make........I didn't want to do the red rose/red hearts bit - plenty of our cards would have those on so I went for something I have never done before .......... Teddy Bo.  I tried to make it romantic but not too slushy ........ hubby did ask me why "he" had a bare bum in it lol - thankful he didn't think Bo was me hahaaaaaaaaa.  We had a beautiful day - our sons took us out to dinner (with their partners) and when we got to the restaurant we found that hubby's family had all come down from wet Wales as a suprise.  There is just me and my dad in the UK on my side of the family - he was there too.   What a wonderful day to remember :)

I would like to enter this into
Sorry the picture is a bit dark, weather is awful here in the UK at the moment ........

Such a cute download of Bo and Bea - I didn't seem to be able to get the fur just right so had a go at "dotting" using my promarkers - I think it worked out quite well.  The papers are from my stash and they are faux stitched (I bought a small sewing machine but still seem to do it by hand lol).  the flowers and leaves are all cut out of the 12 x 12 paper; these are also faux stitched just to add more dimension    and I used dimensional glaze on the centres and the row of spots on the front of the card.  The  numbers40 are quickutz that I've had for yonks these are also glazed to make them pop!
