So sorry for missing a post yesterday, but it was a very busy day in the Barrett household.  We have a new family member...
meet Buster Posey~

For you MLB fans out there, yes, he is named after the San Francisco Giants catcher.  I was thinking something like "Kaiser" or "Hans", but DH came in from work and started calling him Buster Posey. 
Poor fella, he was full of matts and burrs and briars and fleas.  His skin is a disaster and we don't think he sees well.  He got groomed today (shaved to the skin) and the groomer thinks he's probably 12-14 years old.  He was dumped :-( 
How do people do that???
  He goes to the vet Thursday so we won't know his health status until then.  The good news is that he hasn't peed in the house and he is learning to use the doggie door!  YEA!!!

So in honor of our new acquisition, I have a card for you tonight that uses the sketch at Come and Get It challenges.

I used very old DCWV pet paper and cs.  Ribbon is from Papertrey and the woof clip is from Basic Grey.  The stamp is from Your Next Stamp and I colored it with Copics and Spicas.  It kinda looks like Buster, don't ya think?

I'll be entering this in the following challenges:

Craft-room Challenge - furry 4-legged family
Papercrafting Journey - hand coloured
Forever Friends Challenge - anything goes, must include an animal
Totally Papercraft - It's raining cats and dogs (1,2,or all 3)

Thanks for stopping by!
