How much is that doggy?

I always use to feel sad for that poor doggy in the window as I listened to that song as a child they don't do nice songs with a story very often now but I like songs with a story, another favourite is the little boy that santa claus forgot, though I never quite understood it until I lost a little of the Christmas magic of who Santa really is. Enough rambling and reminising and onto a card.

Another fab and oh so cute Sugar Nellie stamp from Funky Kits and get your order in by 2 and Mark pops it in the post the same day fab service.
Anyway I was looking on their gallery for ideas of what to make for my 10 year old nephew, awkward age not grown up but not a wee boy either I do think 10 to 14 is hard as it should be called tweenager not teenager. Well saw a fab card and decided to use it as a base idea for mine so Sugar Nellie DT to the rescue and a great big thank you from me.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and cut it out added a bit of sparkle well it is for Christmas. I then used a Go Kreate die which I also got form Funky Kits and cut out a shape to mount him on and embossed it with a brick design. I then added some Martha Stewart punched leaves and mounted that on snowflake embossed paper. A few gems to finish and a tag and done, hope he likes it.
