Best Friends...

Are you ready for a new card?  I found this image, as with many others I have used in my card making, at Mo's Digital Pencil.  This one, which I colored with Copics, is called Buds g (I'm assuming the "g" stands for girl because there's another image just like this one only the child is a boy.)  I just thought this was so sweet and because I'm such a big animal lover, I just had to have it.  When I was a very young child, my parents had German Shepherds.  One of the dogs, a female named Fritzi, was my best friend and "babysitter".  She watched me and my younger brother like a hawk and wouldn't allow anyone near us that she didn't know.  She kept us away from the street, the fireplace and floor furnace and would grab our father's arm and hold it in her mouth if he tried to spank us!  I loved that dog! LOL!  This cute dog reminds me so much of Fritzi, even though they are obviously different breeds.


All of the cardstock used for the card base and mats are by Recollections. I edged the yellow with a pink pigment ink pad.  The DP is from Basic Grey's Lemonade collection.  The mat on the front was made with Nestibilities Lacy Squares and the border on the bottom photo was made using a MS punch.  The greeting stamp is from a jillian vance design stamp set.  Ribbon is from my stash.  Pearls are from Recollections and the little heart puffy sticker as well as the butterfly and circle flower sticker were part of some blog candy I won in a blog hop.

That's it for today!  As always, I appreciate your visit and hope I have managed to inspire you in some small way.  Have a wonderful weekend and until next time....

Happy crafting!
