Good Afternoon to you all, as some of you may know i walk a dog for a neighbour as she can no longer get out to walk him.  Rufus was what we call here in Spain a street dog and was managing to survive but one day as Pam and her husband were out walking (about 5 yrs ago) they were going back to their car, opened the car door and Rufus jumped in and quite clearly adopted Pam and John, he has been with them ever since.  He has absolutely no plans of running away or leaving them as he is sooo well looked after there.  He is a bit tubby i must admit even with the long walk i give him each morning.  I have grown quite attached to Rufus even though he can be a bit grumpy with other dogs, not all dogs just a certain few he has taken a dislike to but i am slowly getting him over that.

The card i have made is for Pam & Johns Granddaughter 5th Birthday needless to say she is a true little 5yr old girl who loves Pink - she adores Rufus and Pam thought a card with his Photo on would be just the ticket so here we are.  Pam hasn't seen it yet but i hope she likes it.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges.
Shelleys Images - Anything Goes

The Pink Backing Paper is Dovecraft 8 x 8 and the flower paper is fromVintage Rose.
The sentiment die cut is spellbinders and the butterfly is a memory box die.
The ribbon i bought from our local bazaar shop and i just love it.
The Beautiful charm was made by my daughter Helen.

Thank you for passing by and looking and thanks again for any comment left.
