Something not christmassy for a change

Down at the 3D Cards Challenge Blog (, they are currently having a challenge to incorporate fruit into your card. Now, I'm all for eating 2 pieces of fruit a day, but I found it hard to get inspired and add fruit to the crafting mix. Thankfully, when I was perusing through my crafty magazines, I came across this little doggie. It's not really in season, but I really couldn't resist. Also, I liked the fact that it was so different from the Christmas Cards I have been making recently, too much Christmassy cheer early on in the year is overkill for me, although I am sure there are plenty of crafters out there who start in January for next year! I was planning to also submit it to the Gorjuss Challenge (not a square card), but I missed the deadline :( Oh well, next time perhaps! Backing paper is Smirk (I LOVE that stuf, it's just too cute), Love and Friendship set I believe. I have decorated the inside a little bit as well (a very good habit I picked up from Mary J, although I am not as good as her at it yet!), but I also like a big surface to write on so kept it small and around the edges. Finished it all off with white peeloffs and a sentiment. I like the fact that the card shape it a little unusual because the topper is wider than the card. How I am every going to get this into a regular envelope though............something to worry about later!
