Fitztown German Shepherd

Here is my animal fix for the week!  I just couldn't resist this German Shepherd image by Morgan Fitzsimons.  It is not available at the Fitztown shop yet, but if you email: and supply a link to this post they should be able to provide the image.

I colored him with Copic markers and the paper is from October Afternoon.  It's one of my favorites so I bought lots.  Can't afford to run out!  Chalks were used around the edge of the image for distressing.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Great Impressions  Animal Friends
Robyn's Fetish  Animals
A Gem of a Challenge  Animals Any
Animal Friends Challenge  Must have an Animal
Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe  Anything Goes with Chalk
Digi Galore  Anything Goes
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge  Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew  Masculine
Fan-Tastic Tuesday  Anything Goes
Through the Craftroom Door  Anything Goes
House that Stamps Built  Fur or Winged Things
As You Like It Challenge  Do you prefer images of people or animals, and why?  I definitely prefer animal images.  I have always loved animals and it gives me great joy to bring them to life on paper.
