This is a fairly colourful card – much more cheerful than my normal cards (it’s the amazing Cosmo Cricket paper). 

This little guy is for my father in law’s birthday.  The inside says “…you handsome dog!”.  I think he’ll like it.

The stamp is a Recollections stamp from Michael’s.  I did a review on a set a little while ago and have since purchased this set (I think I only have the two so far).  I have to say that the quality is quite excellent.  The image stamps cleanly and the ink doesn’t stain the stamps like it does with my Hero Arts clear stamps.  I don’t actually mind stained stamps but it’s nicer when they don’t stain.

I stamped the bone separately and cut a slot in the dog dish for the bone.  The image is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with an aquapainter and SU markers (as usual).  The red strip with the black gingham ribbon is actually a piece of cardstock with the ribbon attached to it using Scor-tape.

Another quick layout to add to the pile!  Still in the UK…
