Some Days You're The Hydrant

A lot of days lately I feel like I should be given this card...being the hydrant is getting to be a bit old! But I know that you take the bad with the good, and good days are coming.

I'm playing along in both the MFT Color Challenge #52 and the Sketch Challenge #296.

I started by inking up a vanilla panel with some grout colored ink and the Small Brick Wall Stencil. I then adhered some washi tape to each side of a vanilla cardock base, and the brick panel. I stamped the sad looking puppy (I love him!) from You Make My Tail Wag and colored him in Cement base inks, and then the hydrant and colored it in blue. These were adhered to the card base along with a sentiment panel. I added a few Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carribean Blue for a finishing touch.

Did you know I started a facebook page where I promote all things crafty (think sales, new releases, etc.!). I would absolutely be tickled if you join me over there!
