Who could resist that face?

There's that sketch again, I told you I really like it!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter with your family and are refreshed.

This is another BugABoo digital image along with a few additions from my Stampin' Up! collection.   I colored this pup with the same Copic markers that I used on Friday's pup, I just mixed them a little differently.  These are the colors I used:  C8, E27, E3 &  E33.  The papers are PTI Spring Rain & Dark Chocolate with SU Creamy Carmel, Black and  Neenah Solar White.  The Dark Chocolate panel was done with a Papertrey Ink embossing plate and of course I used my Nesties circles and ovals.

I know all put together my card looks very straight forward but I had to let it sit on my desk overnight before it was finished.  I had to change the card base from Aqua to Spring Rain and I had to stamp something on that SU Creamy Carmel square & I didn't have the bone yet.  Do you ever need to walk away and come back for another look before you put it all together?   Funny how the next day it simply falls into place.

I think this card would be a nice one for Operation Write Home,  missing you would be perfect for the inside!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog and for telling me you do read it all LOL. I am always curious if girls actually read all the stuff we write or if they just want to see the projects. Good to know that all the writing isn't for nuthin - at least some of the time.
If you do make up the template be sure to let me know so I can go drool over it :-)

Thanks again -
Stay sweet,

Stampin Pam

I love all the texture with the great embossed background and the text behind the image! The bone is the perfect accent to go along with this cute pooch! I not only leave my unfinished work overnight, it often goes for days before things fall into place! LOL :D
