A happy Monday morning to you all!

I wanted to just take a moment to say thank you to everyone who stopped by and left a sweet comment about me Featured Cupcake Sampler day last Friday. It truly meant a lot to me and I feel so blessed. Thank you. :D

So as you may or may not know, I'm currently in Minnesota (Warroad- near the Canadian border) at the moment looking very interested in the making of windows.....*clears throat*! But we did go to a glass factory where they make sheet glass which was really interesting! I'm such a geek sometimes! hahaha

Anyway, I made this card Friday night and photographed it Saturday morning before I drove to the airport - I'm a crazy woman! Every Friday Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge is released and her DT take turns hosting the challenge. This week's gracious host and (who's blog I love to stalk!) is Lori Craig.

I used this stamp from Doggone Stamps because it leant itself perfectly to this sketch, WSC77. The part that took the longest was watercoloring the Lab. I found it hard to create a lot of depth with the brown inks. I had to apply the Close to Cocoa in layers and wait until they were completely dry before adding the Chocolate Chip as my darkest layer of color. I added some black for his nose and called it quits.

Blog Hop Alert!!

If you haven't seen my little golden retriever button in the left hand column, Doggone Stamps is having a blog stroll this Saturday, April 25th. If you have stamps from DGS and would like to play along, head over to this thread on our PCP site and sign yourself up! (Mary, I know you have some! LOL) We will start the blog over at the talented Lauri Ingram's blog, so head there on Saturday morning at 10am EST.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope Monday isn't too horrible for you!

I feel my arm being twisted...go easy will yeah! I'm still recovering from Club Anya, but I will go check it out. In fact I have do have some doggones that need some attention. Love how you colored this Sandra...I found it hard to get the dark shadows in too, but I used copics. The blue paper and that clear button treatment is perfect.
