Holiday Mini Bailout #9: Good Boy!

Here we are my friends, we've reached Day 9 of my Holiday Mini Bailout series. Until the 19th I'm posting 12 easy cards measuring 4" x 3.5" that you can make quite easily. If you find yourself in an unexpected festive deficit these project might give you a few ideas... hopefully.  I'm also using up my hoarded stash and sometimes, bits and pieces that I find lying about my craft room. So join me while I tidy up my messy "studio".

Today I have this little idea for pet-lovers:

The background paper is from my local craft shop. I fished it out of the bargain bin a couple of years ago and a stack of 50 assorted A4 sheets cost me 50cents. It really is a bargain because these papers a embossed in silver. Not obvious in the photo but the raised design is shiny silver. Can't understand why I waited so long to use it!
The little dog is "Scottie" by Adam Pescott and I layered him on red SC cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles die.

Close-up of Scottie. I coloured him with SN markers.  Dog: IG1 & IG2. Antlers: TN7 & TN8.  Vest, hairband, bauble: CR9 & CR10. Bell: GB2, CT4 

Here's the inside. The sentiment is from WMS Seasons of Love Tags stamped with Rhubarb Stalk.

This is a very easy card and I made half a dozen in one evening and promptly sent them out the next day. Since I decided on a white Scottie, the colouring is simple and minimal.

Scottie and I are joining these linky parties: Paper Pretties #69 "Red, Green, Choice"; Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Callenge #103 "Anything Goes Christmas"; Card Crafters Circle #53 "Red White and Green" and Freshly Brewed Designs #125 "Christmas".

So that's another quickie done and dusted. Thanks for dropping in. I have three more cards to show you, so join me tomorrow for the final furlong! See ya!
