TPC #83 Cute with Buttons

Morning everyone.  Been a sad week here in the Cross household as we sadly had to say goodbye to our beloved Dylan.  He would have been 13 in November and we've had him since he was a pup.  His health deteriorated further to the point he couldn't walk and kept falling over.  The vet had been waiting for an MRI scan to take place in four weeks to see if he needed surgery.  As he got worse last weekend both myself and Pete felt we couldn't put him through any more as he'd already had two major operations this year resulting in the removal of both eyes.

This photo was taken on our camping holiday last year, before the surgery....

Rest in Peace old man and run free. 

On a happier note we have a new challenge for you over at Totally Papercrafts.

Now, on to this week's challenge, our sponsor this time is

Whom have kindly offered as a prize,

FOUR digi images of winners choice.

I used one of my images from Mo and it gave me the perfect opportunity to try out my new star shaped nesties - perfick!!

I'm quite chuffed with how this turned out as I really wanted to try and create a male card for this theme.

I hope you like it.  I'm also entering this card into the following challenges......

Bronte and Bella's Challenge - Boy Attitude
CRAFT - Children
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a lovely weekend.
