Ruff Day?

I am so lucky!
Even though Margaret moved to CO summer of 2011, we have stayed friends.   Today, I found a card from one of her posts in my mailbox!
I am the proud recipient of Easter Wishes, her post from last Saturday.
It is so beautiful, more so in person than in 2D on the blog.  
Well, she needs to be watching her mailbox, too, because I mailed her and the girls a packet on Wednesday and she should get it tomorrow!
Don't ya just love surprises like this???!!!

Okay, on to the card for tonight.

This was a fun card to color and make.  I used the template from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  The doghouse and fire hydrant are from Craft Lounge (sad to say, they are out of business) and the pup/sentiment is from Inky Antics.  I used an MFT opoen scallop die for the doghouse and nesties for the small scallops and the 3 circles.  The images are colored with Copics.  DP is ancient stash from Wal-Mart, I think, and cs is DCWV.  I added some brown Swarovskis for some sparkle.

I am also entering the following challenges:

QKR Stampede - Animal Antics
Stemplesonne - Fur & Tail
CCEE Stampers - Oldie but Goodie - All stamps have been in my stash years - 1st inking for doghouse and hydrant!  Little pup has been inked a lot.

So glad you stopped by!
