Dog Gone It Anyway...

This card came together today exactly as I had envisioned it - and that doesn't happen very often, let me tell ya!  I was able to spend some time surfing my favorite challenges today and actually went to the designing table (aka dinningroom table) with a plan!  Love it when that happens!

The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps - I was fortunate enough to have snagged it when it was a weekly freebie and he has just been hanging out waiting to be set free.  I printed him with MS Word and set it up so I could print 4 on a page.  I colored him with Stampin' Up! markers in Bliss Blue, Blush Blossom, and Creamy Caramel.  The frame outline I drew by hand just using a ruler and a black gel pen.

This little guy will be included in my next box for Operation Write Home and can be used for so many "occassions" such as belated birthday, miss you, sorry, or any other events that our hero may have wished he/she could have been home for.  He was made specifically for the MWT at the Stars & Stamps blog where we making cards featuring the wonderful canine in honor of our very own mascot Pvt. Ciara.  Congrats Ciara!

So glad you could stop in for a visit!  Happy stamping!
