Some Odd Girl August Sketch Challenge (and Taco update)

Hello my friends & followers!  I wanted to get my entry in for Some Odd Girl's August Sketch Challenge before the window of opportunity was completely closed.  Here is the sketch:
And here is my card using SURPRISE! - SOG's Preppy Pups set along with SURPRISE! - My Mind's Eye 'Sunshine' paper collection in my favorite color combination: sky blue & chocolate brown - I used to think this color combo. 
looked funny, but after seeing it plastered all over the campus of my alma mater for four years it kind of grew on me and since undergrad was such a positive experience those warm, fuzzy feelings probably seeped into that color combination as well - I am always drawn to it when I see it in products in stores.  I used Copic colors E74, E77 & E79 to color in the adorable pup.  I am going to start needing refills in my E-family soon with all the pups I color, LOL!  

(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I am also entering this card in the following additional challenges:
     I've had some folks inquire about how Taco Papacito is going (for the original story, please see this post). Thankfully, he has found a foster family (even if it isn't mine, sniff sniff!) so he at least isn't living at the vet's office anymore.  I am waiting for more information on the cost of his eye surgery so I will know how much needs to be raised and have already had a BUNCH of really sweet ladies representing several stamping companies step up and offer to help with a blog hop and crafty goodies for blog candy - so please keep checking back!  And a HUGE thank you to those who have already donated (since Taco is now at a foster, it is probably easier to donate to Jansen's Animal Hospital directly if you are interested in helping out - just ask your donation be put toward Taco Papacito's bill for neutering, shots, and boarding fees).  Thanks so much for your concern and support of this sweet little dog trying so hard for a second chance at a happy life!
