A Dog and a Swap

Well, it's five days into the new year, all the excitement has settled and it seems really quiet around here!  Of course I do have my fabulous Finn to keep me hoping.  This morning he helped himself to the bananas (left over from Christmas Stockings) I had ripening on the kitchen counter for some banana bread.  He only got half of one before I caught him, let's just say he hates being ignored (I was on the phone)!!!  For those of you who haven't been introduced to Finn here he is. 

Who could get angry at that face??  So now instead of banana bread I'll make some Egg Nog Bread I found a recipe for.  I'll let you know how it turns out. 

 So on to the crafty part of this post.  A while back, actually some time in November I was in a swap and this was my swap. The swap was a Canadian (so like those for the postage) swap and the challenge was to use something new from the Holiday Mini (the Spice Cake DSP) and something from the new IB&C (Faith in Nature stamp set).  Love that Spice Cake paper. There is a little bling on this card, but not so much that you could still classify this as a masculine card.
Hope this inspires you!
