Here's my inspiration using this cute little pup from the January New Release 
He's called Yarn guard pup by Miss Rach and is available HERE

I so enjoyed making this card - I had an idea that I would make it fairly CAS and masculine and I think I achieved at least the last part of that! (perhaps a few to many layers for CAS - but definitely ok for a male card!) - though I'm sure "he" could become a "she" with a colour change and some pretty embellies

The hop will run for 1 week and end on Friday 10th January at 12 Noon EST, when the lucky winners will be announced right here.

Below is a complete list of the hop in case you get lost along the way

Here's what I did...

Digi - Yarn guard pup by Miss Rach from Whimsy Stamps
Coloured with - copics, prismacolor pencils and a touch of white gel pen
Papers - Dovecraft Christmas 
Card - MFT Kraft
Twine - MFT
Buttons - from my stash
Sentiments - produced in word
Dies - Spellbinders (round) Memory box (flagtails)

Oh how much I love this card. A dog and yarns. . . . things that mean so much to me. You made the card really masculine by the details.
I´ve now made a card of my prize in the last bloghop. You can soon see it in my blog.
Have a wonderful weekend.
