Rock Dog


     Ain't nothin' but a hound dog, rockin all the time.....think that's what he's singing?  I fell in love with this little guy the minute I saw him and if you like him as much as I do then hop on over to the Birdie Brown blog and grab him cause he's Torico's freebie for the month of June.  I've used the sketch from Lesley Croghan's Seize the Birthday challenge which I was honored to be the winner of last time with my chef card for Jessica Knutsen's birthday.  The winners are chosen by the voting of your peers so that made the win doubly special.  :-)
    I was just remarking to my uber talented friend Katie Sims that CAS style cards are really difficult for me.  I always want to add more and no matter what I do they always seem naked and too plain.  STB has some really great CAS sketches to work with and this little guy needs to be shown as the star he is so here's my card in all it's nakedness.  LOL
     I was going to wait until tomorrow to post him, but he's so cute I just had to go ahead and share.
     Hope you're having a fantastic week!
