You're My Top Dog

As promised, I'm back with card 2 for my DH.  
This one is from the dogs...

This is as CAS as it can be, which is totally not my style.  However, this beautiful stamp is so stunning that I did not want to overshadow it with embellishments! I used Spellbinders Labels #4 to cut out the image which is from Inky Antics by the Shady Tree Studio.  It comes in a set with 3 sentiments and a cat/bird scene, as well.  I am in love with the beauty of this stamp and there is a story there.

Our sweet Schmitzy that we lost just before Thanksgiving had a love/hate relationship with tortoises.  So much so that my DH bought me a tortoise charm necklace for Christmas in memory of our dear boy.  Schmitzy would find them in the woods, even when deeply hidden amongst leaves and brush.  He would then pick one up and carry it around, all the while growling.  I would take it away from him and go hide it in another part of the woods.  N.o tortoises were ever harmed other than frightened by their ride in my dog's mouth.  One particular one had been marked with nail polish by someone and this one came back repeatedly!  So when I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to have it!  What is really cool is that I won this set!!!  Anyway, this will be to Glenn from Sammie, Geena Bea and Abigail.

I am entering the following challenges:

Time Out - birthday with optional masculine twist

Crafting Musketeers - monochrome

That's it for now.  Thanks for stopping by!
