You Can Never Have Too Many Black

stamp pads, shoes or dresses. How many black stamp pads do you have? If you're married you may heard some form of that question at least once. If you're happily married your spouse has probably learned not to ask too many questions along those lines. Either he/she doesn't care or doesn't want to know or is brilliant and actually understands why you have to have more than one.
I love this little doggie, he is one of the coolest dudes around with his beach umbrella and lemonade. He's a Cat's Pajama critter and if you're familiar with those stamps you know that there's also some frisky penguins in the line (if you're not familiar with them what's holding you back, go check them out). If this were one of the penguins holding that drink I'd be certain it was a hard lemonade but poochie here, he may be a tea totler. Let me know what you think, I'm not too sure.
I need to scoot out of here so I'm gonna go right to the deets:
Stamp - The Cat's Pajamas "By the Sea"
Ink - Brilliance Graphite Black (I finally broke down and picked this one up, you don't want to know how many other black stamp pads I have); Ranger Shabby Shutters
Paper - The Paper Studio "Sketchy Beach Icons"; Banana Split cs from MFT;
Miscellaneous - Water Dew Drops; Sulyn glitter; chipboard (under the glitter); ribbon; SU markers
Here's the challenges:
TCPTUES109 - the sketch (thanks to Leigh O'Brien)
The Color Throwdown #92 - Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive, Kraft
Tuesday Taggers - Step Outside Your Comfort Zone for me making a round card is outside my comfort zone, I've only made them when challenges call for them
Stampin' B's #58 - make a card with food or drink
If the Shoe Fits FF#34 - Rain or Shine (I like shine)
Charisma Cardz Challenge Week 19 - Sweet Treats include food or drink
The Shabby Tea Room Week 9 - Chipboard (the glittered swirl is a piece of chipboard I covered)
Papertake Weekly - Shiny Sparkly and Special
Paper Cutz Challenge #41 - use the image of a cat or dog
