It Should've Been Grey

Hello Nomad friends.  I hope you are weathering these strange times.  Who'd have thought.  I am glad I have my crafting and my garden.  And you.  It's nice to know that normality is an option somewhere.  I got a card yesterday from my friend Cat for the March Card Chain Challenge card exchange.  The March exchange is in full swing and the April sign ups are ongoing, started before it all went pear shaped, and we are hoping it will all go to plan, but who can tell.   Anyway, Cat included some Crazy cats and dogs she stamped for me so I just had to include one on this card.  Thanks Cat.

I made this as a birthday card for my brother who loves dogs.  I stamped the sentiment from Rubber Dance Funny Birthday set and drew a box around it.  I masked it, inked a stencil with festive berries distress ink and stamped it on the card.  I coloured the dog and fussy cut him.  I added a wash of festive berries distress ink to the bottom of the card.

Thanks for dropping by.  Stay safe and keep well.  Hugz
