YAY, snow again, NOT!
I had to share a funny pic of my fur baby "Ruffis". He's a chocolate lab with a bit of hound in him. He's Buddies daddy. (The one that got hit by a truck and had his tail amputated, yep, that's the one!) His momma was a beagle, yes folks it does happen. Poor old girl had two litters of his pups before she went to puppy heaven. She was a strong little thing. We call them "Beagledores", half/lab - half/beagle
On to my card! Of course, you now know why I was thinking about fur babies today. I used this adorable image "Hershey Bath" from Sew Many Cards. He's just too darn cute. I paired him up with some of my papers from an old Swirlydoo's Kit and ribbon from RRR. I made my bow and added a little blue stick pin with a heart on it. I pushed it down under the layers so you won't get poked opening it. I love the phrase "Oh no you didn't!", which is from Kraftin Kimmie's. I'm NOT happy with the coloring on the barrel, but I am happy with the glazed water look. I used my glossy accents for that and sprinkled just a touch of glitter on it. I also distressed all the edges and inked it with Tim Holtz, Weathered Wood. I'm really trying to use different products and colors that I'm not so comfortable with. One day I will actually figure out shading, until then I'll keep on trying!

I'm trying to make a point to also decorate the insides of my card as well this year. Nothing fancy just to finish it off.
I hope everyone stays warm!
