It's a Doggone Monday!

Happy Monday!! I thought I would start off the week with another new stamp from DoggoneStamps, the Westie ! Yay for Westies!!! I think you all know that I have a Westie, Chansey. This guy looks like him too! Well, except for the bow tie and shirt, that is.

I followed Jana's weekly sketch over at the DoggoneStamps group at Paper Craft Planet. Behind the Westie, I matted his picture with two sheets cut with the TopNote die for the BigShot. The Circles were cut with Nestabilities and I embossed the background with the cutttlebug dots folder. I colored him with colored pencils, trying to show some of the "yellow" tint that my Chansey has. He is not really pure white, and my puppy actually has a yellow-ish stripe down his back!

Hope you had a nice Easter and that your week is off to a great start!

What a cute stamp! I sure wish they would do a Giant Schnauzer! Again, I love the layout you used and the combo of the labels dies and the circles are quite creative. BTW, I love your post titles! They are clever! Best, Curt

Yep, he does look like your Chansey, but when he's black, he looks like my Oliver! Very well done, Lauri! I love these stamps!!!
