Blue Skies and Smiles


Here's my take on the OWH sketch challenge #209. I used this adorable Simon Says Stamp dog image, coloring it with Copics and adding some blue skies and green grass to go with his fun smile. The papers were a gift from my sweet friend Mary Anne and the blue bits were snippets from my stash. The little blue gemstones are from Pizzazz Aplenty. As always, I tweaked the sketch just a tad bit to accommodate my image, but I'm happy with the way this one turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great Sunday!

I'm happy with the way it turned out also. I love it. I used the swiss dot e/f also on my card today. I like the papers and I really like how you made your three embellishments on the bottom. Great thinking. Enjoy your day.

Love the title of your post - makes me feel warm! Your little doggie is very cute and I like your colors. Keep warm. TFS.

Oh, Carol, your card does indeed make me smile, makes me chuckle out loud actually! For some reason I always think the expression on that adorable dog makes him look like he just did his business where he wasn't supposed to and maybe if he makes this face, you won't look over there and notice!!

Enjoy the day! Hugs, Darnell

I love how you layered up the sentiment in the circle. The extra layers make a small stamp work in a bigger space. Well done! :)

Oh, that dog is so cute in that pretty scene you made. It looks like the day we're having. It is 62 degrees and sunny. The wind feels just like March. Of course, it is bring those frigid temps again.

LOL at Darnell! He does have that "oops" look on his face. I really like the blue with the peach, Carol. Nice job!
