I've gone to the dogs!

Hello! Happy Tuesday! It's been awhile since I've played with the wonderful images available from Tim n Shells. They just got back into town from some uncivilized part of the country where there are no stamping supplies and no internet connection. *gasp* The very thought!! LOL Just kidding, I'm sure it was a much needed vacation and I'm sure they had a very relaxing time.

I made this card with a challenge in mind from a blog I stumbled onto yesterday. It's called The Sweetest Thing and this lovely lady named Karen posts challenges on Sunday's. But then when I visited Sheri's blog, I hadn't even gotten to my daily read of the challenge blogs, I learned the The Pink Elephant's challenge this week is an animal theme. So, whoo-hoo!! Two challenges in one card.

The sketch from Karen was a simple one and I loved it!! I created the background paper by getting free clipart from the internet of the paw prints and then just pasted them all over a page in a word document. It wasn't easy to get a uniform piece of dp with this method, so I had to improvise and cut in a paw to fill in the gap.

Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget that there's a new sketch on Tuesday Morning Sketches today, too. Come join the party!!
