Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog!  The 1st of a new month means a new challenge over at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge blog!  As always, we are Anything Goes, as long as you feature a critter!  This month, our sponsor is the lovely SheepSki Designs.

For my card, I chose to work with this cute image called Walkies:

Don't these two look cute going on their little walk?  Everybody needs a bit of exercise now and then!  I sized and cut the image with my Silhouette Cameo, and colored it with alcohol markers.  The background was created with the Twisted Sunshine stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs and Martha Stewart glitter paste in Sour Apple.  The green is more muted in the picture than it is in real life, and of course the glitter doesn't show well either. 😐  I added the black sentiment strip for them to walk on, but I did have some trouble coming up with a sentiment that would make sense with the image, AND fit the size the strip needed to be.  I finally settled on this one from the Happiness Messages stamp set from Hero Arts.  I'm hoping it suits the image well enough!  Everything was glued down flat with Bearly Art glue, except for the image, which is popped up on foam tape.
