Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Anything Goes!!

Can you believe it is the first of the Month again and time for another Anything Goes Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge!!! I chose the darling Bernard:

Mo created several darling dog images a few months ago and I chose this adorable St. Bernard and colored him and he has been sitting on my desk just waiting for the perfect opportunity to get made into a card.  The only problem I had was trying to find a fire
hydrant LOL.  You would think with all the cricut cartridges I have and all the free SVG images online there would be one..........but NO........after wasting too much time looking I finally printed off a clip art image and cut it out,  second best I guess. 

I used two different dog dp's, that I had,  a little picket fence,  a paw print ribbon, and a paw print ribbon attached to a Play TH tag chain.  I added a few hand made roses and sprig leaves and my Anything Goes card is complete. 

The Sentiment is from a Dog stamp set I got at Michael's, with all different Dog related stamps and this is one of my favorites. 

Side Note:  When I was growing up:  back in the dark ages--a good friend of the family who was actually a dwarf, used to raise St. Bernards.  We always thought it was so unusual that a small man would choose such a large breed to raise.  I remember Andy even now and can remember him stopping by to visit with my parents. 

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the my DT sistahs have created for you to see and grab a Mo image and play along.  Remember for every 25 entrants Mo gives a prize. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!!

Hey there sugarplum!! I know how frustrating it can be to search the internet for something and come away empty-handed. Frustrating! But, I gotta tell ya, the fire hydrant you selected is fact, all of your pet elements are pure perfection! I love this Mo image....and, as always, your coloring just blows me away!! Hugs. Pat

This is so so cute, I have Bernard as well, but have yet to color him up. Thanks for the inspiration. I am sure that your dear friend Andy would love this card.

Cathy, your card idea is simply fantastic! The fence and the hydrant are so perfect for this cute puppy! I really know this problem having an idea in mind but not having all items to realize it. But fortunately you found a hydrant at least!

Hugs, Anja
