Birthday card for my hubby


I'm finished with my Valetine's Day cards so I thought I would work on birthday cards for everyone on my list.  This card is for my hubby.  Our dog is always begging for dog bones and we find them all over the house, so that's why you see the punched dog bone on the chair and on the floor.  He also loves sweet stuff so the saying fits him perfectly.

The darling little dog, chair, saying and milkbone box are stamps from Eat Cake Graphics.  I paper pieced the chair, chair legs and hat.  The dog and milkbone box were colored with Copic markers.  Designer paper is Blink of an eye by My Mind's Eye.  I was trying to use a paper that had a masculine feel to it, but it was really hard to photograph.  Oh well, I know he will smile when he sees this one.
