Feeling "ruff"?

Hi folks,

Here's a quick card you can make for someone who's feeling under the weather, or just not good in general.  I found a similar card online about a year ago and it has been floating around in my mind to recreate it.  Here's the card!

I used the Doodlecharms cartridge and cut the puppy at 4".  The card base itself is 5"x7".  The brown layer is 4.75"x6.75" and the yellow lattice bace is 4.5"x6.5".  I made the sentiment on my computer and printed it on white cardstock, trimmed it up and backed it on brown cardstock.  I also used twine and wrapped it around the top layers of the card three times.  I used pop-dots to adhere the sentiment over the twine.  I also put the dog on an Action Wobble and used a white gel pen to add some dimension to the ears and nose.  Oh!  I also didn't have any googly eyes - I need some of those!  So I used my Liquid Pearls and did a dollop of white for the eyes and black onyx for the pupils.  Cute, huh?

Here's a picture of the dog in action.  :)

Craft on!
