A Girls Best Friend!

Sorry I know I have been a bad blogger and have been awol for the last week but I have been incredibly busy getting even more products uploaded onto my website in preparation for the launch (seems to be a never ending task at the mo).
Anyway last Monday we celebrated my mums birthday, she is a huge inspiration to me and in all honesty my business would not exist without her help and support. Well before I get too mushy I wanted to share with you the card I made for her. I used the new Kanban stamps with the Old English Sheepdogs as I grew up with these wonderful teddy bears and my parents still have 2 of them, Dylan who is an amazing 15 and a half and Harry who is 7. We began showing them when I was 14 and I quickly became the groomer so the image of the little girl brushing her cuddly friend seemed soo appropriate.
