Time to wake up, the dog wants a walk. This is such a great image isn't it.
Image and paper - Little Claire
Medium - Copics
Ribbon and buttons - Crafty Ribbons
Dies - MFT stitched rectangles
Other - burlap, twine

Well what a horrid day for weather yesterday, dull and wet. Had a lovely day in the craft room. I had 4 magazine commissions last week so I was finishing off the last of them and working on some orders. Went for a yummy carvery last night with friends. Looks like another wet day today so a day indoors again. I want to try using the newer laptop rather than the one I normally use. The new one has Windows 10 so that will be a learning curve. Nice roast, last episode of Dickensian and Call The Midwife. Enjoy your Sunday.

It was a bit of a dull weekend but it sounds like you kept busy and had fun. We managed a very long walk on Sunday without getting too wet and it did involve a nice pub lunch in the middle of it!
It does look like the dog on your card is after a walk but I'm not sure he is going to get one! Your design is brilliant; the check paper and hessian give it a lovely manly feel :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
