Thankyou card

The last theme for Novembers Challenges over at Gingersnap Creations.
GS 129 'Once in a Blue Moon' , is  make a thankyou card.
My card is for a special friend, and  I even got round to making the box.
The card is layered, using a tree bark folder and a branch which I cut out. My stamp of the Collie Dog is from a Joanna Sheene set.
The stamps used for the rest of the piece are Chocolate Baroque, Artistic Outpost and a few that have long since lost their makers names.
Trimmings are from my stash. Shading is vintage paper, tea dye distress inks and watercolour paints.
This was to have been my last post as November  Visiting Artist  for Gingersnap Creations, but  I was so excited when I was invited  to visit for December as well.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.

I will be trying to visit all my lovely followers blogs, but I am having a few computer problems, using my OH's laptop at the moment and so missing my big screen.
