This card has a very strange story. Thursday evening I went to make my card for this week only to discover that I didn’t have any dog stamps. Not one stamp of a dog. I was shocked, but I know I have digi stamps of dogs, so no problem. We’d had a big storm that day and our Internet was down along with our Wifi so I discovered I wasn’t able to print anything. Hmmm, no stamps and can’t print. Truly a dilemma! I keep a file of images that I’ve printed but haven’t used that I often forget about. Surely I had printed off a dog at some point, right? I went through the file and found birds, fish, mice, frogs, etc. And way at the back of the file was this one lone doggie. I can hardly believe that it was that difficult to make a dog card! So I actually made a stencil with Paper Smooches Paw Print die and I stenciled the paws on the front and the back of the card with Rusty Hinge distress ink. Then I colored and fussy cut the dog image and then used adhesive to place it on the card. That’s it. How about that for CAS. It took me longer to find a dog stamp then it did to make the entire card! I love the paw prints. They look so cute running over the card.
I am entering these challenges:
- Addicted to Stamps and More challenge: CAS
- Simon Says Wednesday challenge: anything goes
- Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge: anything goes

I hope you'll come play along with us this week at the CAS challenge and hopefully finding a dog stamp will be much easier for you then it was for me. LOL! Have a wonderful Sunday!
