Life Has Been RUFF

Hi there! 
I am a dog lover and I know many of you are as well. I had a great escape this week to my nearby crafts box store. What I liked best about the excursion was getting to meet, Bonnie, a delightful therapy dog. Her owner said their outing to the store was the first time out in months for the pretty canine who really needed to socialize. How well I could relate to that statement and my new furry friend. 

You can only imagine how much I enjoyed coloring this doggy lineup and setting them into a simple scene. I did some masking with the stamped images to rearrange the pack, fussy cut then colored using Copics. The sky and grass were ink blended with Distress Oxide inks. ( Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover.) 

It felt good to make this card for a friend that has been going through the mill with health issues. The dog images are from Puppy Power (Waffle Flower Crafts) and the sentiments from Friends FURever (Honeybee Stamps.) I know I will get lots of use from these sets. The sentiment continues inside with "No bones about it... You are PAWsome!"

I am playing with Freshly Made Challenges who inspired me with this sketch this week.

I thought the differing heights of the pooches mimicked the vertical lines. A little bit.

That's all for me today! Hope to see you soon!
