If you've arrived here from Annette's blog you're on the right path, if not and you'd like to start at the beginning you'll be on the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps blog.


My card uses a digital image from Cuddly Buddly's Lilyboo Designs called My Top Dog.
I used Copic markers for coloring and my layout is Operation Write Home's Sketch #26 pictured below.


Here are the Copic markers I used:

Skin:  E00, E01, E11, R21
Hair:  Y21, YR21, YR24, Y26, Y28
Jeans:  B91, B93, B95
Shirt:  R35, R46, R59

Award:  B21, B23, B34
Grass:  G40, G43, G46
Glow:  YR30, YR31

Be sure to leave comments on each stop so you'll be in the running to win one of the fun stamp sets from

How "small world" -- Just last night I came across the digi you used! We love our pets, and the "pet show" series is really sweet. Thanks for sharing your darling card.

Lucy said...

I don't have Copics, but I do love digi images. It's a great way to find an image for just about any idea. This is simple enough that even I (a relative novice) could do (though not as well). Thanks for participating in this great international blog hop. What fun way to spend part of a rainy afternoon.

JoAnn Ross said...

Once again, you just blow me away by the perfection of your card, especially the coloring. And THANKS for the yellow glow hues. I was trying to get that on some fall cards I was making but they just kept coming out too yellow. So, I ordered those two colors; they came yesterday and the cards look so much better!

I showed your soap inspector to my sweetie. We laughed at that photo!
