Inhale Courage

Courage is the new optional theme over at Path of Positivity! What does courage mean to you?  I believe courage is shown every time we step outside of our comfort zone.  What might seem like a small step to my neighbor, might be a huge step for me!  Recently, we took a big step in adopting a GSD (German Shepherd Dog).  Now, this might not seem like the most courageous step one could take; but I'll tell you, it is a big undertaking!  

This made me think of all the GSD's, Malinois, and Bloodhounds out there working to protect us on a daily basis with our local law and military.  I have seen some live demonstrations of what these dogs can do and it is amazing how they and their handlers can work together.  

This beautiful shepherd digi is part of the Paw Prints Digital Stamps from Beccy's Place.  I colored him up with Copic Markers and combined him with paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and some embossed Kraft paper.  A little twine pulls it all together.

I plan to send a few of these cards out to our local Sheriff's Dept K9 and their human officers with a gift card to a local ice cream shop who gives out Pup Cups!  That way, the pups can treat their humans to a treat while they indulge, also!  ;)

 My card is off to these challenges:  

2 Crafty Critter Crazies:  AG with a Critter
Crafty Cardmakers:  Add a critter
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends:  AG
Just Us Girls:  Pattern Paper
Outlawz~Paper a la mode:  Dry Embossing
