Happy Birthday,Sorry I'm Late

I'm crazy about this English Bulldog from Gingerloft, he just looks so remorseful  I want to give  him a hug:O). Plus I am frequently late in getting Birthday cards out , so when I won a Top Three placement from Gingerloft with a free digital image as a prize and after casing their shop I knew exactly which image to pick. He is just perfect for that OMG I forgot to get a card off moment, why anyone would forgive  you ,wouldn't they, when they see his sad face.   I know he is in trouble re the wrecked garden bed  so one could use him for a lot of 'oops' moments couldn't they? Why not head over to Gingerlofts for their latest challenge (theme 'Happy Birthday') and where my little bulldog card is making a guest appearance:O)
