Dexter in a Flying Helmet......

Good Evening, I hope everyone is enjoying the same weather we are, we have had glorious sunshine for 3 days now and it's been wonderful.
Anyway back to crafting. I have been meaning to use this gorgeous stamp from Penny Black for ages as the little spaniel reminds me of my very own Dexter so finally here is my creation. I used the great sketch by Caz over on Cute Card Thursday's Challenge blog which was really fun to use. However, due to the size of the image I had to create another 8x8 card.
These boy's fit into quite a few challenges this week so they will be entered in the following: - Sketch by Caz - Lots of Dots - Challenge#11 Polka Dots Tea Party (Lots of polka dot dp) - Challenge #31 'Bling it On'
