Baby's 1st Halloween

If your looking for the House Mouse Blog Hop click HERE
Hello everyone x
My cards today is using the Digital Delights image PUMPKIN DUMPLING. When I was given this image to design a card for a challenge, I knew exactly what I wanted to do BUT it was not suitable for the particular challenge coz it had to promote Halloween.
My cards were show cased on the Digital Delights blog but I had not posted on my blog ....... that's until now x


Before I show my cards, I wanted to show you some pics of my staffie. He had 7 mass cell tumours removed. He is feeling much better now (thank goodness). The vet said his fur should grow back in about 6 - 8 weeks time.
