Time Out #186 - Theme Challenge

 Hello!  The Theme Challenge over at Time Out this time is PETS

I love my dog Martha.  She's a black and white English Springer Spaniel and she's adorable (IMHO!).  So, I had to use this cute dog in black for this challenge.  I stamped it using black ink and die cut it several times to stack it for dimension.  I used the same black ink and embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder.  I knew I had some old Basic Grey paper with a pet theme and had to dig it out.  I chose this pattern and cut a piece and a black piece of cardstock to mat it.  I added three black hearts to fill out the white space.  I'm sending this to our neighbor's son who comes in the evening to take Martha for a walk.  He rings the back doorbell and Martha runs to the door jumping up and down because she's so excited to go for that walk with him!

Here she is when she was just a puppy of about six months old.  She is 2 1/2 years old now and so furry!  She was sitting by me in my craft room when I took this picture.

You can see more from the Time Out design team on the Time Out blog.

Oh Martha is so adorable, is cute little eyes! Bubbles is nearly as big as him now and he is only 7 months old! Your card is perfect for your neighbour. Love how you got the image to look so closely to Martha and grounded using that fab paper. And like that shading of the sentiment-looks double x

Your card is so sweet, as is Martha. I love the story about your dog walker and how excited she gets to see him. Love that strip of perfect patterned paper and I love the font for your sentiment.
