My Dog, Rudolph




I love this doggie and haven't used this stamp in years. I met a friend in Northern Ireland some years ago by using this stamp. It is Lynne at  Ruby-Dooby-Doo Crafts. She has the cutest Westie ever named Ruby and this reminded both of us of Ruby. I think of her every time I see this stamp. We met on Splitcoaststampers and now we're blogging pals. All because of Ruby. :-) If you click her link, you can see Ruby. Hi, Lynne!

This was such an easy card. I made mine a one layer.I started to give it a ribbon but didn't think it needed another thing. I colored it with Copics and did a little shading on the dog. The sentiment was added and that was it.

I want to enter the following challenges

 Addicted to CAS #27  has a fun challenge. The Code word is PET. I don't have a pet any longer but I still love them.

Rudolph Day at Stamping for Pleasure-It's the last challenge of the year

This is so sweet Brenda. Love your card. We found a small and neglected pup in our garden a few weeks ago ( possibly left there by someone who knows we are animal lovers). My husband is looking after him while I'm visiting friends in Sydney, Australia, and we're hoping our six cats and the dog will be getting along, so that he can stay with us permanently...

Thanks for joining in with Rudolph Day.

What a sweetie, I'm glad you left it just as is and did not add the ribbon. It's doesn't need a thing.
Enjoy your day.

Thanks for your sweet comment! I appreciate you participating in the Sisterhood Challenge! I am thinking floral images might be my thing.
I hope you have a wonderful blessed Thanksgiving!

This is just perfect as it is, and such lovely shading. I have this stamp (NBUS) bought because the DD loves dogs. I'd forgotten I had it. Glad you got to enter Rudolph Day at Sarn's. I didn't have time to get anything done & scheduled. Glad you did, and hope I can get by to enjoy all the loveliness at Sarn's & the Playground...TFS, Hugs & Happy Turkey Day. Stay warm, be safe if it's icey where ya'll are.
