Woof, woof!

A card today for a card swap, with a dog theme as a recipient has a lovely dog.  I kept the card just cream and black to match the beautiful ribbon. 

I started with a 6 x 6 cream card blank.  The heart dog image is a die cut from the Spellbinders 'Pawing Around (Dog)' set of dies and attached to a cream stitched square die cut and layered on a black mat.  The background is embossed with a Sue Wilson 'Pawprint Lattice' embossing folder.  The ribbon was bought at a local fabric shop and layered on a strip of black card. All the black card was snippets, so I'll be off to share my card in the Playground.

I am joining in the following challenges:


I thought I'd share a few photos of  North Devon, a place we visit regularly.  It was especially beautiful last weekend in Ilfracombe where there was a 'Morris' festival on. 





There were lots of groups of people Morris Dancing, a traditional style of English dancing which dates back centuries.



Here are some of the dancers in action.  
The video clips should be working now!

  20. Hi Liz,
    what a brilliant card for a dog lover.
    I love the black and cream theme and that ribbon and heart die cut are so fab.
    ooooooooooo! I loved the morris dancers video clips I could watch them for ages as they are so very talented people.
    Last time I saw morris dancers they also sang sea shanti songs too which was a bonus.
    That part of Devon looks very pretty.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  27. I adore your cute doggie card Liz and great in black with cream and the ribbon is perfect. I love the videos of the morris dancers and Ilfracombe is lovely especially in the sunshine with the bright blue sea and sky. It is not too far away from here but haven't been there for a while, we tend to go to Lynmouth more but all the North Devon coast is beautiful. x
