Quirky CAS reminder time, with a cute doggie.

I can't resist a cute critter, and this Bassett Hound by Crafty Girl from our sponsor Stitchy Bear is the cutest new addition to the dog basket!
I coloured him with Promarkers, cut him out (still using my new Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 dies) and mounted him on a die cut panel which is embossed with Creative Expressions clouds and coloured with blue chalk.
The sentiment is die cut with an IO die set.

This card has snuggled into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes (Tues Jan 13th)
ABC - A for anything goes (15th Jan) 10 only
Pink Gems - something new (16th Jan)
Allsorts - new and cute (Sat 17th)
Cute Card Thursdays - Something new 
Coffee Chocolate and Cards - no circles (Fri)
Creative Fingers - #62 anything goes (Fri)
Creative Card Crew - for a child (Jan)

This card is a copy of the one I made last week, except that I printed the two images on kraft card and coloured them with Prismacolor pencils this time. If you want to find out how cross this made me - read the previous post! Following some great tips by fellow WOYWWers Nikki C and Shaz in Oz I know there is a possible solution to the breaking leads, and that the splintering wood is due to quality of manufacturing! I need new pencils, different make I think.
Anyway, I die cut the panel and card out with my new Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 again, I am having fun with these. I love the end result, despite the Prismacolor pencil problems.
The images I used are Blue Tit 4 by IkeSart, and A Sign of Spring by Lil Diva both available from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

This little bird has flown into the following challenges:
Divas by design - anything goes (Wed 14th)
Simon Says Wed - something new 
Ike's Art World - something old (Prismacolors) Something new, dies and images) (Tues 20th)
Pan Pastels - clean and Simple (25th Jan)
