Doggone Good Day!

I hope all of you are having a doggone good day!  I have been without internet service for the past two days.  You would think that would mean I spent a lot of time crafting…..nope a lot of time on hold with tech support.  Why is it internet service providers always want to say it is your problem and not theirs???  I am back up with intermittent service…a new modem is in route.  I can only hope that resolves the issue!  I hope you are having an enjoyable weekend crafting!  I was finally able to sit down tonight and create something.  I fell in love with this little stamp set the moment I laid eyes on it.  This cute little puppy is part of a new stamp set in the 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book.  The best part, the whole set is only $6.95.  I combined the stamp set with a new paper packet, Victory.  Victory is a great paper pack for all of the boys in your life.  The reverse side of this plaid is a cool camo print! You can also see another pattern from the Victory paper pack as my background in this photo.  I based the card on the sketch layout this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the original sketch-

I love the clean fresh sketches at Freshly Made Sketches.  If you have not joined in on the challenges yet, you need to get stampin!  All supplies on this card are by Close To My Heart, except where noted.
