Hello Friend!

It has been a long time since I have played
with a challenge over at
as family health issues have kept me quite busy.
I think everything is about back to normal as it can be
so I am finally back at The House.
Now I HAD to make time for this challenge
because my Cyber Scottish Sister Cheri is Hosting her
'Who Let the Dogs Out' Challenge' and
this card was made for her.
Now when I make my cards for The House I always try
and make them with Repeat Impression Stamps.
I wasn't worried this time as I knew I wanted to use
my Scottie dog die my Hubby bought for me
and of course add tartan paper.
Then I remembered a stamp I purchased from
a win I had over there some time ago - hence the
Friend sentiment - You Cling Set
Here is how I made this card.
I have used black/re and white card stock.
The Scottie dog (Marianne Designs LR0339)
was cut from black card stock as I wanted
him to be white. I heat embossed a piece
of card stock in white to give a rough textured look
and glued the black cs to it. A shame you can't see the effect.
The frames were cut from Spellbinders Hexagons
Tartan paper is Boofle which a girlfriend brought back
for me when she was in London.
I gave my Scottie a tartan collar and of course a dog
needs a bone so have added several and inked
for effect. I have used foam squares for layering.
The flourishes on the corner finished it off nicely
I thought and are from Inspired by Stamping. 
Thanks so much for dropping in.

Super cute!! That die shape and the plaid/tartan paper are perfect for this adorable card! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

Oh, SS!!! I adore your Scottie and you gave him such a handsome layout! What a sweet gift from the hubby! The "frieend" sentiment was a perfect way to add an RI stamp. So happy to see you playing again with the us at The House and I'm honored that you chose my challenge jump in again.
