Dogs are the best

For this card I've used a quote from a film:

'Dogs are the best. Every time you come home they act like they haven't seen you in a year.'
The Negotiator (1998) - Lieutenant Danny Roman

I've used the quote for today's Daring cardmakers challenge: film quotes.

Years ago I wouldn't have agreed with this - I hadn't been used to having a dog until I married John, who had a lovely dog at the time. For a while we were without a dog and then John got his first guide dog, followed by a second one ... but sadly had to say goodbye to Josey because of John's deteriorated health, so now we are without a dog.

This is also for Less is more 80: one layer fur or feathers. As the card need to be one layer I printed the quote - I had a few goes with paper first to make sure I got it in the right place when I used the card - and it worked!

The stamp is a favourite (because it looks like Josey) - I coloured the image with a couple of copics.


This is also for:

Kreative Basel 4: animals/pets
Little red wagon 146: dog days of summer
Dutch dare 178: furry friends
