Happy Tails to You!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has been fabulous! This started out to be my CAS Challenge card for yesterday (if you haven't seen the DRS Thursday Challenge, please check it out!) But as things sometimes do, it got out of hand and ended up not as CAS as it was supposed to be. After the mishap, I surrendered and added a few more layers and extras.

It was going really well and I guess that should have been my first clue that it was all about to head south. My little dog Spot (or should I say Spots), was stamped and I added a little tan color to him and some spots cause he just looks like a Spot to me. And I had made a pretty quick background on the tan c/s using just one stripe of the woven plaid border. I was attaching Spot to his layer and I dunno...something that looked like ink...don't know where it came from...smudged the upper right WHITE corner of Spot's little box. I was able to save Spot by cutting him out and attaching him to another white layer (I washed my hands first). But by then it wasn't CAS any more.

So I punched the lower edge of the greeting panel then used pinking shears on it. I used a 1" circle punch on the button ribbon slide and threaded thru some left over thin strips of bg. I attached it to a slightly larger die cut circle and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished. Not exactly CAS but not too involved either.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
