Walking the Dogs

Happy Wednesday folks! Boy a short week is great but I'm afraid that I'm a bit turned around by it this time thinking it's Tuesday : )  Wonder how many meetings I missed yesterday at work because of my scrambled up head!!!  But I'll take Wednesday because it's time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge and I'm excited to show this wonderful sketch today!

This is a fun one with all its layers. It's a perfect sketch for smaller DP prints on a larger card. And it's a good one to show off unique embellishments too. Great job Arlana!

We are so lucky to have Tiddly Inks as the sponsor of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week. Christy Croll, the owner, is generously offering a $10 gift certificate for Tiddly Inks digi stamps to the Grand Prize winner of the challenge this week. Thanks Christy for the terrific prize!

And we were so lucky to get a Tiddly Inks digi stamp to create our samples with this week. I've used the image "Walk the Dogs" and it's so darn cute. The first thing it made me think of is my 12-year old daughter who loves to wear her hair straightened like this and is the one to take our Westie dog out for a walk who looks like the smaller dog in this darling image!  It's colored with Copics and it was fun to color the white dogs by just shading in gray tones.

Here's a quick picture of our Tillie Mae!  Talk about a personality - this sweetie is full of it!

I used papers from Basic Grey's "Hopscotch" collection on my card - I love these soft colors. And the special dog embellishments I used were actually buttons I found at Michael's craft store and just cut off the shanks so they would lay flat on the card. And there you have it - a perfect card for any dog lover out there!

Be sure to pay a quick visit to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see the wonderful inspiration the DT created this week with Tiddly Inks images. I hope you'll join us in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week too!

Thanks for stopping by!
I'm entering my "Walk the Dogs" card in the challenge over at the Alphabet Challenge Blog where the theme this week is "D for Dogs".

Sharon, your "Walk the Dogs" image is too precious! I can see how it reminded your of your Tille Mae. She is cute, cute, cute! I have been walking my daughter's dogs, a toy maltese, toy yokie and a bearded collie. They are all characters but love their walks. Your buttons are so perfect for your card! I recognized them right away! I always look at those buttons too! I love your papers and your coloring is superb as always. Your dogs look like they could walk off the card! Enjoy the rest of the week!
