Another birthday and Ruby's coming home!

This is going to be uber quick as I've got a million things to do before I pick Ruby up. Yes she's coming home today! She's doing really well and is adjusting to the harness great.

It's Pierce's birthday today...happy birthday honey!!!

I made this card yesterday (as opposed to 5 to midnight last night lol)
I wanted to do something a bit different with Magnum and the Add-Ons so I masked the present to make it look like he's got a stack of presents instead of just one. This was fun to's been a while since I did any masking.


For a change I borrowed Mary J's style of cutting the image out...dont' look too close at the jagged edges!


The masking up close


IRL the colours of the pp are gorgeous.

That's it! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to enter your cards into the Challenge Blog by 9am Monday for your chance to win!

Have a flabulous weekend!

Catch ya later x

Aw glad to hear Ruby is doing well and coming home. That'll be a weight off your mind.
And Happy Birthday Pierce - hope you got him a nice pressie :). Your card is great - love the masked pressies, funny how photos never show up the paper as good as it looks ey?
I finished my Nikki & Ben card at last and it's on my blog if you want a wee look.
Am going to see if I can make some time for the challenge blog today!

I'm glad Ruby is doing so well and a big Happy Birthday to your hubby. I love your card. The stacked presents looks fantastic and I think your cut-out looks very nice. I really like those papers and they're perfect for a male card.
