Happy Bark-day....

Pssst! For my Shopping Our Stash post, just click on the link or keep scrolling down.

Good morning peeps! I want to share a card I made based on sketch #56 from the CAS-Colours and Sketches blog:

Here's the inside:

and the sketch:

When I saw this sketch, I kept thinking about a big pile of presents in the bottom corner. When I was looking through my stamps sets, I saw this cute doggie and immediately knew that pile of presents would become a pile of bones - a perfect birthday gift for that little guy! LOL! (Wish big indeed!) I made a handful of masks and kept moving them around as I stamped the pile. Colored the doggie and added shading to the bones with my Spectrum Noir markers, stamped the sentiment, finished the inside, and was done!

That's it for now. It's a rainy day here today (but warm, so I'll put up with the rain!) I should get some more housework done...but I'll most likely be coloring more images instead. (Hey, the housework isn't going anywhere.) ☺Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day today!

Stamps: Paper Smooches - Birthday Buddies, Birthday Sampler, Paws for a Cause (bone)
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
CS: Copic X-Press It; The Paper Co.
Accessories: Spectrum Noir markers; Fiskars corner rounder; black pen
Adhesive: SA by 3L - MyStik permanent, 3D foam squares

HaHa housework never goes anywhere, super cute card, love your take on the sketch, I'd like to colour more too but I have to take the cat to the vet for blood work. Never again will I make an appointment in the afternoon when she is fasting. I feel like such a meanie. only two hours to go.

Nice job masking that big pile of dog presents! The purple as accent colour is a great choice. :)
