A sweet friend and blogger recently got a Yorkshire terrier and I wanted to make her a card to offer congratulations, so this is what I sent her. The digital image is one I downloaded several years ago, and unfortunately it has no name attached to give the artist credit, but I love how that little dog has it's paws out of the postage stamp box! I framed it with a black panel and then added a die-cut postage stamp mat to go underneath. I left the dog sketch uncolored, but colored the frame edges with a Spectrum Noir marker and added a SNSS sentiment. The vertical panel is a water colored snippet that was embossed with a square lattice ef by SU! I stamped paw prints on white and punched them with a small circle punch, adding them to the panel along with a scalloped punched border made with a retired SU! punch. She's absolutely delighted with her new puppy and is about to welcome a 2nd dog soon too, so I wish her all the happiness in the world with her sweet pooches :)
I'm sharing this with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge #9 - which is to always use a critter on your anything goes project.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We were invited to a friend's house for dinner and had a really nice time mingling with her very large family and feeling right at home.
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day whatever you do!
