for Crusoe


Crusoe the celebrity dachshund has been an internet rage for quite some time, and I love all the videos and antics he gets himself into. He recently had back surgery, so I thought I'd send him (and his family) a card just for fun while he's recovering. You can read all about him here.

I started off with some pool party cardstock, adding a Tim Holtz crazy dog with a big stick in his mouth - because Crusoe loves to pick up sticks. I used the MB woodland branch to make the stick and tucked it into his mouth after making an extra cut. The fence and grass were both done with SNSS dies, and the sentiment is from Inky Antics, die cut with a SU! framelit. I added a dog-bone brad from my stash, along with a die-cut tiny sun.

I'm sharing this at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes" this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great Wednesday too!

Carol

Crusoe is wonderful to wake up to each day, and I sure hope he mends quickly. He will love your fun card! I love the way the fence is tucked into the grass. Isn't it fun watching him open mail in his videos?

Thank you, Carol, now that I've seen Caruso in his walking sling compared to Borat in his bathing suit, I'm never going to be the same! This is a very sweet card. I love that look on the doggie's face, sort like he isn't quite sure what to do with such a big strick treasure.

This is such a cute card. I love the dog's face. He looks as if he's not sure whether to hold onto the stick or drop it and pick up the ball. A great fun card that will give the recipient a smile I'm sure. Barbxx
