A CAS-ual Friend

cypdt2ndmar 001

At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Thought I’d try my hand at a CAS,one-layered card featuring the endearing Buddy by A Day For Daisies.They’ve been coloured up with Spectrum Noir Pencils with added white gel pen highlights.Edged with a hand pierced border with a break for the stamped sentiment to be fitted in.I suppose that’s about it really 🙂

Although my title is a play on words this image just reminds me of my DS2 and our sweet,funny dog when they snuggle up together ♥ She’s far from a casual friend…in fact every chance she gets she makes herself very familiar.Even with total strangers!!

Here’s a little piccy of her cuddling her ducky :

She’s a Staffie x Whippet – or as I like to call her…a Whiffie 😛
