i Ruff You

How sweet is this image?  Doodle Palace have produced him in various guises before and now here he is for Valentines.  Funny how I think of him as a he and not a she!  We used to have a Basset Hound when we were young and, let me tell you, the detail on this is spot on!  So much so, that I emailed Dee and Robin to ask if they were owned by a Basset!

And here is the closeup of the I'm going to let you into a secret.....if you look very closely, left hand side as you look (thats the side that this writing is on relevant to the picture!)....right in the middle of his ear, is the tiniest white mark!  See it???  Ok, now, see the cute brad above his ear (should have just said the ear below the brad rather than all that left side business!) - well, I thought I would stab a little hole for the brad to go through, so I didnt scrunch the pic when I was doing it - and then stabbed his ear!!!  

Ooo and I copied a sketch from Create4Fun Challenges so would like to enter him there as well!
And also - Challenge up Your Life are looking for Valentines Cards with Hearts! Guess what - secret crafters want hearts too!  AND Lexi's creations want hearts and valentines too.  And promarkers challenge is to use an animal or beastie image - oh yes! - see how useful this image is???

Well, if you would like to buy either the sunflowers or doglet - pop over to Doodle Palace - they go on sale today!  Thanks so much for taking the time to look!
