A Dog is Not Just for Christmas

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to Rachel and Shaz in Oz.  So happy to have you as new followers.  Hugz all round.  

I missed the red moon last night.  It was big and bright and clear til about midnight then it clouded up.  Then about 1am I gave up and went to bed.  Since it wasn't doing it's dance til 3am I decided I'd just catch it next time LOL.  Hoping I'm still around in 2033 and the whole thing happens at a more civillised hour ho ho.  

Talking of ho ho, I decided a little non-traditional xmas crafting was in order

I stamped High Hopes Andy and Patch Block, embossed and watercoloured.  Then I fussy cut, removing the background inside the frame as well and mounted it over some MME christmas tree paper.  I added a polka dot layer and mounted on a grey base card I smooched with Stormy Sky distress ink.  The die cut sentiment is part of Memory Box Merry Christmas to all.  I also took some of the smaller elements from the die cut and added to the image panel
