Pets R Us for Stamps R Us



The theme for the challenge over at Stamps R Us beginning today is Pets R Us!!!  So for the next two weeks, you need to create something with a pet on it.  It doesn't necessarily have to be a dog or cat either.   I mean, it could be your goldfish, horse, lizard...just whatever suits your fancy!  Different people have different pets sometimes.  When I was younger my brother had an iguana for a pet!  Nasty little creature if you ask me and I was always just petrified of it.  I was afraid it was going to get out of its cage and get in bed with me!!

This little pup is from K n K Designs - our sponsor for the challenge.  So many cute images there and you really need to check them out.  I colored him with Prisma pencils and paper pieced his little "detective" jacket.  I used some Handsome Hunter (although it looks black in the photo), white, and some unknown plaid designer paper.  

Thanks for stopping by and be sure and check out the Stamps R Us challenge!

Hi Lynn,

These are one of the few blogs that I seem to manage to comment on... as it does show the Name URL section. In the others I am not even able to because this section does not surface at all!!!

This card is cute, cute, cute... I love his hat and his jacket. Such a cute doggie! And thank God that iguana did not get into bed with you... I am mortally afraid of creatures such as these... You should see me when I spot a lizard. Just cannot stand them.
