You're a Hot Dog!

Good morning everyone!

I am having a couple of days off work, well-deserved if I do say so myself as I had a big deadline yesterday and made it, yay! Hubs is also off, so we are planning to take some day trips, weather permitting of course. It's looking fine now as I type this, but of course that doesn't necessarily have to last! We shall see :)

I wanted to share with you a card I made for the fresh Fab 'n Funky Challenge, the theme is For a Child. Lots of things you can do with this theme, perhaps a baby card, or a card for a boy or a girl. I went with the latter (more for a boy than a girl I think, but I'd like to stay open minded ;)) and made a fairly simple card. In my experience, children are not really into very elaborate card (which is great for me, as that's not my style anyway), but like something fun and clean. Say that's the style I went with for my card, using a cute Wiener dog. To add a bit of interest, I cut the buttom of the coloured paper and folded it back. I thought it was a fun technique, I am curious what you think! Anyway, come and join us if you can, we'd love to see your work!
