More wagging and less barking...

Hello again!

I bet you are surprised to see me posting on a Sunday and with a non-DT card no less. Well, today is the last day to enter submissions into this year's Card Design Superstar contest at My Favorite Things and I decided to throw my hat in the ring once again. It's been a few years since I've participated and I wasn't even really sure if I was going to join the fun this time around either but I got the idea for this card back in early summer and I could never make the time to put it together. I knew there would be a lot of masking as well as all the coloring of the different dog breeds if I wanted to do it right and do it well. That all seemed a bit overwhelming for just a card to post on any ol' day of the week. But once the contest was announced I had the perfect incentive to sit down and bring this idea to life. Being that I work with dogs and spend most of my days, walking, feeding and playing with all number of canine pals you can imagine I have an affinity for collecting cute dog stamps too. So I grabbed dogs from a bunch of the Birdie Brown sets and paired them with this casual cutie from the retired Birdie Brown Let's Hang Out set since she best reflects my work attire... very wash and wear, LOL! Then I just settled in and colored them all up and gave them an expansive dog park to be visiting, complete with an entrance sign that borrows it's sentiment from the Playful Pups set which seems to be retired now too. I gotta say, I'm really glad I finally got this one out of my head and onto a card and it came together even better than I had hoped. 

So wish me luck, the talent in the Coloring Virtuoso category has set the bar extremely high!
