Marianne Design Creatables Die - Classic Boats LR0199

Good morning fellow bloggers :D
I'm trying to get my time back in order following a period of chaos!
Hubby had his operation last week but I rained on his parade by being admitted on the evening before his 'op and they kept me in for 2 nights!

But, hubby has recovered well (never felt better in a long time) and thankfully, my scare turned out to be negative - pheeeeew :D

It was his 75th birthday on the 8th and here is the card I made for him...

Using one of my favorite dies to cut the Yacht - Marianne Design Creatables Die - Classic Boats LR0199
I must credit  Glynis from  (where I bought the die) for the inspiration. If you're ever in the Stockport area, her shop is well worth a visit ;o)
The Banner is SPELLBINDERS-S4-324)
DS used is from a K&Company stack and my bunting is hand cut

Before I go, I've just read this post from Lesleys Blog over at  FRESHFIELDS Animal Rescue Centre and wanted to pass it on.....
Ain't he adorable?

Mr Big Ears.
no I am not referring to the lovely Martin Clunes who is a great dog lover -  in case some off you were unaware of this, he is very active with a dog rescue in the South of England so he can't do much wrong in my eyes. No I am actually referring to   our adorable Kai who has been in kennels far too long now.He is a cross staffordshire bull terrier / german shepherd.It is an unusual mix and has resulted in a medium size dog with enormous ears and a very loveable personality. Not one person has enquired for him and we need a home soon or he will start to go kennel crazy and that would be a great shame and so unfair on this lovely dog. He likes to play with the kennel owners dogs(all females) And would make a great friend for another dog, maybe a labrador or lively collie  type.

Many thanks for stopping by :D
