Crafting for all Seasons #90 "Birthdays"

Good morning all and a big welcome to all my new followers....I hope you enjoy your time here.

Urghhhh computers who'd have them....can't live with them, can't live without them!! I managed to install about 7 unwanted programs last night when an Adobe Flash update presented itself on my screen...I realised instantly something was wrong but it must have taken the best part of an hour to uninstall everything again!!

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Birthdays". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. Our sponsor this time is Limited Runs who gave the DT images to work with. A slightly "more is more" card from me today after all the CAS ones of late. This is for Lora whose birthday is next month.

I've used Birthday Puppy coloured with promarkers. Papers are from Wild Rose Studio's Bella pack.  Background is made with a Martha Stewart punch a round the page set. Oval dies are from Spellbinders; fence die from Magnolia; star die is a Signature die from Joanna Sheen; sentiment was a recent magazine freebie. Ribbon, charm and gemstone from my stash.

I must admit he doesn't look a very happy chap considering it's his birthday or perhaps it's just the daft hat he's been made to wear causing the hangdog look!!
