80th Birthday Card

Good morning. I'm so glad it's Saturday! I've got lots of housework to catch up on but I'm definitely taking some time to craft. It's been a hectic week and I think I deserve it.... 

Before I start anything else I thought I'd share this card with you. It's for a good friend who will be 80 next week. He always like to get a card with a dog on it but this time I decided that his big milestone needed to be the focal point so I cut out the numbers using Colour My World templates and matted them onto patterned paper (Up, Up and Away) which I cut out with my TonicStudios Square Shape Mates and layered onto plain blue card.
The image is Cairn Terrier ( but I've only added some Ice Grey 3 Promarker to make it like a Westie) from A Passion for Stamps.
At the top of the card you can see the cute little metal Happy Birthday staple which I added with my Tonic Studios Embellishment Stapler...

See you soon!
