Sweet Doxie

     I was recently able to get my hands on this adorable Dachshund die.  This card kind of evolved on it's own.  It started with a play with some watercolor paper, which was then die cute with a semi circle cross stitch die.  My card base is in rust and the designer paper is from K & Co's Sweet Nectar collection.  Next I die cut the Doxie and used fingertip daubers and ink pads to apply color.  I used some SU ribbon for a cute bow, and Golden Sunset Nuvo Drops as my accents.  I added accents to the dog with a Copic.

     Just a quick post for a Saturday.  Hubby is dog sitting, for our son, and I am manning the resident Doxie at home.  August sounds like it will be a jam packed month and getting us closer to hubby's Halloween retirement... Woo Hoo!  Thanks for stopping by.

Really pretty card, Mary Anne! That doxie die is awesome and I love how you've added the color! Pretty papers just make this card stand out! Another card well done, my friend! Enjoy your weekend and I hope you find time to do lots of crafting! Hubby's Halloween retirement will be here before you know it! I know he can't wait! :)

Absolutely so sweet! I love the die and that cute semicircle! That is a fun and different shape to use with cardmaking. Might have to search that one out. Thanks for sharing!

That's a wonderful little dachshund die, and it would be perfect for a pet sympathy card with all the flowers! Great coloring and such a sweet design too!
