Every dog has its day

     Don't cha just want to squeeze him!  I think he'll be waiting around for my uncles next birthday.  hee hee  This cute little guy is from There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I've used him to create my "Lavishly Layered" card for this week's challenge at The Kraft Journal.
     I started my card with a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock.  I used Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock and some Mud Pie Bazzill to mat the designer paper panels.  The DP is actually from a digital paper pack.  I don't print off my own papers very often, but I loved the fun colors.  It's from Shery K Designs.  I did some hand stitching around the orange panel with DMC embroidery thread.  The pup is colored with Copics and I added a button tied with Hang Tag String to the sentiment tag.
     We want to see your layered creations for this weeks challenge.  Remember you must use kraft paper or products from Kraft Outlet to be eligible.
     I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  21. That's what I'm afraid of. What WILL the dog do when that day arrives? Poop MORE in my yard, slobber on my slipper as I unsuspectingly slide my foot in first thing at stupid o' clock, match the tears at the other end of the couch, lift its leg on the nice Pastor again, who spontaneously dropped by, dig tracks in the grass trying to capture a squirrel...gosh, the horror of it just goes on and on! Dangit, despite all of that, they are just the most terrific pets and you've certainly captured that here. Love the dotty grass and blue shading and the always sensational lavish layering..LOL.
    Hugs!
