Another challenge...

wow ...another challenge
Barb  found this one
Time to em-bark on a new cue word journey!  Whether an animal or nature lover, this one should be fun to brainstorm for!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
so here is my take on the challenge
I learned doing this challenge I don't have many things with dogs
so this seemed ok it had puppies ...
the stamp used was from Stampenous --Cheerful
the coloring was using my watercolours ..
Have a great day ...stop by the challenge and give it a try.
