Completed Project Add: Cross Stitch - Creative Dog

I'm going to try something new.  I haven't been very good about posting my old stuff, but I have many of them ready to go, I just never found the "right" time to post them.  So I'm going to make Saturday the completed project post day, at least until I've run out of things to post.

First up: I think this one goes well with my Messy... But MINE!  I did this one a few years back.  It was a full kit and I'm kind of wishing I had decided to change the pink since I'm more of a blue kind of girl, but the pink might work as a better contrast against the green.

My favorite part of the picture, which is a little difficult to see in the pic are the two green stitches on his nose.  I actually thought it was a misprint at first, then I realized he'd gotten some paint on his nose as well.  I've done that... Why does it always seem like your nose itches when you have wet paint on your hands?

I do remember having a hard time framing this piece, I wanted one of the mats to highlight the pink of the border or green of the paint, but none of the colors looked right.  My sister was the main mat designer of this piece.
