Barkley Card

For those who don't know me, I have a son.  He's a furry child with 1 inch legs, long body, floppy ears and the cutest face.  He's my son Barkley the dachshund!  Barkley is an only child, a.k.a. spoiled rotten and truly is my pride and joy.  Don't let the 1 inch legs fool you.  Barkley and I have entered the "SPCA Doggie Dash" and were the first dachshund/owner to finish the 5K run.  He even helped me train for my first marathon back in 2005.

Needless to say, I have collected dachshund items over the years that remind me of my best friend.  And that includes stamps.  

Stampers tip...for those of you who have copics - Use them to customize your adhesive pearls.  I used T8 and T6 to color the pearls.  Gives them pigment to match your paper, but at the same time allows the pearls to still show their opalescent qualities.

Although he lacks opposable thumbs, he is truly a stamper/paper crafter at heart.  He spends hours in the stamp room with me crafting away.  And at times, I will find him sneaking away to the stamp room for quiet time and naps by himself.
