The Male Room Challenge #19

What is black and white and read all over? Do you remember that silly riddle? If you do, you are showing your age. I thought that was the funniest joke only a million years ago when I was about seven. 

The answer? Why a newspaper of course. ( I did kinda give it away. The riddle is better not "red")
That is the challenge today over at the Male Room.

Use newsprint on your project. You can barely get a newspaper these days. Most news is online. I grabbed a left over newspaper from our waiting room because, I haven't read a paper in years.

My card is using another adorable pet stamp set. This one is "furry friends" from Avery Elle. I mean just look at that face..... isn't he the cutest. He reminds me of my pupper Cubby. Anyway this guy just wants to please his owner by bringing in the paper.

I added a bit of watercolor wash and a newsprint stamp from Hero Arts to complete this oh so sweet card.

Ok, now it's your turn to dig up a newspaper or a newspaper stamp and enter the challenge over at the Male Room. I can't wait to see what you create!

I love this cute card. The little dog is adorable. I like the use of newsprint in the background, the sentiment and the one in the dog's mouth. Great card!

And yes, I do remember that joke - it's one of the few that I can actually remember :)
