Celebrate - A double challenge!

Happy Friday everyone!

Hope that everyone is getting ready for a good weekend! The weather is as promised here... sunny and warm! I also lucked out on the yard work for today too ;) My hubby finished right before I returned home from my sister's house.. hehe

My uncle's birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I always struggle with masculine cards. So when I saw the new release from Meljen's Designs called A Dog's Day and the Challenge #8 Seeing Spots. I felt inspired by the image called Chili Chihuahua! He loves Mexican food and Sangria.. How perfect!

I also combined it with the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge #50.

I printed out a few copies of the image and then hand cut peppers for the side and a set to raise on the image itself. Not sure if it showed that well in the pic, as usual :(

I hope that you all have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by :)
