I like to make handmade cards and my dogs are with me every step of the way. I have cardboard boxes from Costco with pillows made up for them to sleep in while I make my cards, so I have boxes of dogs! Three of my little ones have gone over the Rainbow Bridge, but I know they are still watching over me.

OWH Sketch 164
I missed making a card in time for last week's sketch challenge 164 at Operation Write Home. This card came to mind as soon as I saw the sketch, but I could not think of a patterned paper to use. I also have never made a card with the cutaway on the crosspieces like I did here, so I felt stalled out. I finally knew I had a workable idea to try today when I spotted this 12x12 sheet of Basic Grey paper that I had pulled out to use for a Father's Day/Dad card or some type of masculine looking card. Since I knew I wanted to use a brownish/grayish marbled paper to stamp the sentiment on, this BG paper looked like a good match.
