This month I have made two cards, as Kim is off house hunting & packing so she didn't have time.
So here's my second card....one of the lads that volunteers at Gentleshaw on a Sunday with us has totally fallen in love with Nico...who hasn't lol....anyhoos his mom gave me some harnesses with leads for Nico when he is older. So I thought I would make a thank you card for her as they are really expensive harnesses with the padding & you can turn them inside out for a different colour, so I just wanted to say thanks xx

I love those green candies, and how they complement the green paper, which I just noticed you actually lined up with the pattern on the brown paper. It looks GREAT!

Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash!
