It's your birthday...celebrate with a bath!!!

This will be my pooch tomorrow ( minus the mice, I hope!!! )
as she goes to the groomers for a bath and a haircut.
I have to keep it quiet though - if she suspects that's where she's going
she will hide under the cupboard and refuse to come out!

This is my card for the House Mouse challenge,
where the theme is 'Make a Splash!'

It was a very simple and quick card.
I coloured the image with Copics and added glitter to the bubbles.
The little doggy is a button - I just used pliers to snip off the shank
and the 'happy birrthday' is lifted with foam pads.

Stamp - House Mouse 'Soggy Doggy'
Design Paper - Basic Grey - Max & Whiskers
Happy Birthday Stamp - Cat's Life Press
(Papers and text stamp available at Crafty Emma's Store )

Oh this is so cute! What a lovely image. I love the little Scrabble tile sentiment.
Well done on the diet! I was doing ok until i made chochloate orange cupcakes for the lunch boxes this evening....first of all i only licked bowl and spoon as everybody knows there is no calories in that...unfortunately i also couldn't resist warm cake either. Oh well tomorrow's another day!
