You have no idea how long I’ve been begging Ann to make a dog card!  I finally tried the traditional dog begging trick and it worked!

I really think she just needed to be in the mood to watercolor a dog that doesn’t look like me.

So last night, she finally did it!

Dog Thank You Card

I think she did pretty good for a cartoon-like look.  Yes, it’s a drawing that’s NOT very realistic….

But it sure is cute!

I really liked that she added one of my favorites to the card:  the Copper Trim!  (but next time, I’m going to recommend that she fan that bow out.)  Either way, that trim is like no ribbon we’ve ever seen!

Dog Thank You CardI think I’d like to play with this dog!  He looks pretty perky!

Card Making Tips

What colors did we use for watercoloring?

  • Chocolate Chip – Dog
  • Pacific Point – Bird
  • Tangerine Tango Marker for Beak
  • Sahara Sand & Crumb Cake – Ground
  • Soft Sky – Sky
  • Real Red Marker for Hearts
  • Basic Gray Marker for collar

If you end up purchasing this Bella & Friends stamp set in wood mount, you may notice that it’s a pretty full case of stamps.  So that you don’t have any concern getting them back in, we’ve taken a picture of how they fit in the case for you.

Don’t ask  me how I know that you’d want this.  I could just tell so we didn’t move a stamp out of its spot during the mounting process until we’d taken the picture.
