A boy's best friend

Are you the lucky winner of the signed DVD? Check the post below to find out. I was very lucky to win some stamps from the lovely Kath Stewart and this is the first one I have used. It's a Sugar Nellie stamps and I just love the old fashioned look of him. He has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I used the colour scheme from the SN challenge on Facebook, not a combo I would have chosen but I am so pleased with the result which suits the image so well. The papers are HOTP from a 12 x 12 pad. I stamped the sentiment onto a Tim Holtz journal tag and added some baker's twine and buttons.
Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl My 2nd entry using this lovely sketch
Cupcake Entwined
The Crafty Pad B is for (boy and buttons)
Stamps R Us Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles Where the boys are

I'm selling at a craft fair today so planing a crafting day so get some more stock made and finish some off with inserts etc.
