Birthday Trio

Well that certainly was a wet day yesterday... it was my birthday but I decided to spend it at home and stay dry and warm! I'm popping by with a quick post today to show you a card I made using some wonderful little dogs cut with an All Occasion Dies which was one of 3 sets of dies which I won in a challenge over at CD Sunday (thanks so much for this fabulous win). I used a snippet of black card to cut the dogs and placed three of them (there are 6 in total) on a piece of card which I'd cut with a Memory Box 'piestra tile' die, then added a leftover snippet of DP behind that before sticking to the base card. To finish I stamped a Happy Little Stamper sentiment from the 'mix mash' stamp set.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'

The ABC challenge 'T is for three'

CAS on Sunday challenge 'pets'

Simon Says Monday challenge 'trio-tastic'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by at such a busy time. I'm chasing round trying to get on top of things to be ready for christmas this year.... but that would be a first for me! It's the overseas posting date I'm in a panic over and it doesn't help that my Mojo keeps playing hide and seek.
