A four legged friend......

Hello all!
             Happy 1st of the month to you all and I hope it's the start of some spring-like weather to replace all these awful storms and snow here in the States.  Also Happy St David's Day to any Welsh followers I may have!

              Friday means a new challenge over at The Outlawz alcohol markers group and for this week, our theme is pets - although my title says a four legged friend, you don't have to limit yourself to that as plenty of pets have less or more than four legs (or even no legs!).  So before I wander too far from the path, here's the card details - very easy as it's yet another CAS card.  For this one I used one of my own digital stamps called Deefur.  I drew him based on a photo of a very cute dog I used to share my life with, a Jack Russell Terrier called Oscar.  He was such a cutie and a real character - loved him to bits :)


                           This is sort of a one layer card apart from the fact that I matted the image layer onto brown cardstock and then on to the card base - so a three layer card really!  I coloured the image using the dot technique as I wanted to give him the look of texture.

                    I would like to enter this into the challenges at Simon Says Stamp , Through the Craftroom Door , The Paper Shelter , Divas by Design  and Craft Us Crazy .


Thanks for popping in :)

I love this and am so buying this digi RIGHT NOW!!!
Your texture turned out perfect and I like that you went with the less is more mindset because this little fella needs to pop and/or be showcased. I didn't realize you had an Etsy shop either. Shame on me!!!
Whilst I am here, thanks for sharing with us at TTCRD and for the super duper compliment you left me over at my blog. I miss our Bon Jovi banter...btw, did you sing Happy Birthday to him yesterday?
