The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge #66 - "H" is for Hounds

Happy daaay Everyone... today over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers our challenge is "H" is for HOUNDS... now who doesn't love a good dog card?  But it turns out that in my collection of hundreds of stamps I do not have a good a dog stamp - REALLY?! So what does this Girl do?  Well, she searches on-line for a free Dog digi (digital stamp).
And not only do I find a FREE digi that is Exactly What I Need... but I also find a wonderful, new-to-me stamp store  called Tiddly Inks.  I downloaded ALL the Tiddly Inks free digital stamps offered and even spent a whopping $4.01 to buy a few more.  I think I may be going back... Grin... And here is  my card:
 Wait for it....
Ha!ha!ha!... This is my very favorite Groucho Marxx quote... Giggle.

I fell in love with this wee doggy digi, which I colored with my Copic markers and then added furry details with my brand new Prismacolor Pencil Crayons.  (I purchased this 60-crayon set on-line from for only $20 and the colors are beautiful and the soft leads blend as well as the expensive set - Swoon).

These pencils layed down color so beautifully that I filled in my books using only these crayons.  Of course I fussy cut out both the books and the Doggy and used foam pop dots to mount them onto a card base, and I enhanced the sparkle in his eye with Some Close To My Heart Liquid Glass.

So why not join us this week over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers?  You  have until midnight, September 2nd to link up your doggie-related project for a chance to be selected as the Queen of Snark or one of her Princesses... Blog Candy is to be had!
As always, thanks for popping by to see what I am up to, and please do leave me a comment if you like what you see!

    1. Edna, thanks for the visit and the comment! The books are a rubber stamp from Unity Stamp Company that I cannot find on their website so I don't think they are selling it any longer, although they do have several other stacked book stamps available.
