Polkadoodle challenge 4!!

Well, I just can't settle today!! My dad is on his way here from his home in the seychelles, probably over the ocean still as there was a 5 hour delay,grrrrrr!!!! I am sooo excited as we haven't seen him for 2 years which seems like forever. I have checked the flights and he should land at 1pm now so I am just waiting!!!
While I was waiting I decided to get my polkadoodle challenge done,check out polkadoodle HERE
After looking at the DT's fab projects I decided to be brave and try something a little different so I went for a gift tag ( I have 9 birthdays in June to sort stuff out for so this little guy should come in handy!!)
I love the freebie paper , I printed it out and stamped my little woodware doggie on it. I stamped him twice and popped up just his head and paws with foam dots. I coloured a few patches with a light brown whispers pen to make him look cute!!!
I made the kennel using my paper pups cart and inked the edges a bit then stamped and heat embossed the 'just for you' tag. I also inked a little bit of the paper with sme brown ink and popped it behind the dog for the inside of his kennel!! The ribbon is from my stash.
Right I'm off to tesco now for supplies!!
Thankyou for popping in xxxxxx
