Let's Give Thanks at CRAFT

Good morning sorry this is late but my head isnt with it at the minute as my Uncle Norman passed away yesterday aged 107 yes 107. Guess at that age we should be ready but you just think he will always be there. RIP Norman another bright star to watch over us from above.
Ok enough of that you came to see what the thanks is about. 
This week at Craft we are giving THANKS so why not make something as a thank you. 
This time of year so many schools are finishing for summer in the UK so it could be for a teacher. maybe a little card for a friend to say thanks for being my buddy.
Our sponsors for this challenge are
pop along to the challenge for details of the prizes and also read a little about our sponsors
For my card I have used a image called Buddy from A Day for Daisies
I coloured the image with my promarkers mounted on some blue mirri card and arched the top. The sentiments are from various small stamp set I own. The dog house is a Mcgill punch. I shaped the base card to reflect the shape of the image. Not sure if I pulled it off. (mind else where sorry ) Dp is from stash and added some small blue gems for a little bling.
I picked this because this reminds me of my nephew sat with my dog.
Hope you like my card I am not sure myself but this must have taken most of the day to do. lol.
Hope you will come and share your thank you projects with us this week.
Well i must dash as i have a music concert at school my nephew is in and friend is actually the music teacher that comes in to do it.
Have a lovely day and here is a little picture of my uncle
