Poochie Birthday

My last card this week is a birthday card for a friend.  Can you tell she likes to sew?  Here's a cute little sewing machine, some stitched dies, ric rac, buttons, sewing themed paper, and a darling little pooch on a stack of fabric.
This Fat Quarters digi stamp from Sassy Cheryl's is just too adorable, isn't it?  My friend's bundle of fur is a miniature Pomeranian named Lily and she's the tiniest thing ever.  This critter doesn't look anything like her, but no matter.  She'll be loved.
Is it possible to have too much fun making a card?
These are the Copics I used for coloring:

I have to run off and take care of business today when I'd really like to go play in my stamp room, sigh...  Can't always get what you want.  Enjoy your day!
