This is for CC486 - Old Calypso Delight. My second for this challenge. I've been wanting to use this little stamp since I got it and I thought this week's colors would be perfect for it. I don't know who I'd send it to, since it would seem to imply that the recipient led a dog's life, but I say that about lots of cards I make and an occasion always eventually comes up. Or I'll use the stamp again for another card and mask out the text (as cool as it is) and put some other sentiment there instead. But I'm thinking out loud here and what do you care? Again, fun color combo!
Thanks for looking!

What a cute stamp - I can see that it would be one that says "buy me". And the colours are great - I think my parents once had a sofa that sort of green, pretty much. I like it set against the mulberry paper, it gives a masculine feel which goes well with the image. And I'm sure you will find the right occasion to use it - someone who's going through a rough patch (but still has a sense of humour ;-)). However, that dog appears not to be leading what one thinks of as a dog's life!

I think it's great! Perfect for a retiree (if they have a sense of humor) or just a cute card with a thank you inside! Go with it! It will bring smiles from your cute image and wonderful, bright colors and coloring!

I love this stamp, and I love the sentiment! I agree, perfect for a retiree or someone who just won the lottery! Or even someone whose dog has it really cushy! Anyway, great card! Thanks for playing in this week's color challenge!
