Sick As A Dog

We are still on school holidays which ends this week and it has been lovely.  Before Easter one of my brothers was outside doing some work at Mum and Dad's and tried to chop one of his fingers off.  He was actually hammering in some stacks and got distracted and lucky for him (even though he had a very squashed finger) the doctors managed to stitch the top of his finger back on.  My lovely son and I felt so sorry for him, we are very lucky in our family and don't end up with many injuries, that we decided to make him a little gift and a card.  So I jumped on the net (as you do) looking for something appropriate.  I found this very cute dog that I cased from Rhea Anderson.  So I made a card and a pouch to put chocolate in.  Yes chocolate is a cure for everything!  So here it is......
 A decorated block of chocolate and card...
 Ohhhhh, my little dog looks sad doesn't he.....
 Wanted to give you a close up.....
 And the cute card with his doggie tag around him.....
 Just kept the inside plain with a bit of sponging, into the sponging at the moment....
 And look how cute this card is.  I love it, sponged all over the front.  He doesn't like it but I told him it was very artistic....
And the inside, I was very impressed with his efforts....
I am just going to write down all the punches I used for the puppy.
