Hi everyone! I hope your week is going great. Mine is hot and busy as ever, but I'm good because my A/C is working! I have a card today to share that uses an image I dearly love. It's called
I Love You Ole Pal and was drawn by my sister Lynne Stansbery for Squigglefly. I really don't think I've done the image justice with my coloring, but I do love the quotation by Gene Hill I found to use as a sentiment. The full quotation is
Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless hes owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes.
If you want the sentiment, I'm offering it free for you here.
I used Copic markers to color and chalked a little yellow in the background. For some reason I find yellow a good neutral color for backgrounds. I used a really cute dog paw charm that I got from Squigglefly DT member Rhonda Zmikly and the gold trim is something I got from Squigglefly DT member Charlene Mitchell. I think both of these elements really make the card. Thanks ladies for the fun goodies!
The rest of the card is pretty simple and easy to see what I used and did so I won't go into any explanations. If you've ever loved a dog, then I'm sure this quotation speaks volumes to you as it did to me.
In other news I am sorry to see my daughter Chesney Young leave Squigglefly to pursue other avenues. Her artwork will be sorely missed at Squigglefly, but I do know that she has plans to open her own shop at some time, and you can bet I'll keep you posted! Hope you're staying cool wherever you are, and thanks for looking!
