Man's best friend!

Hi All,

Today's card is one i made using a LOTV rubber stamp from their early collection.  I love this dog stamp it is so cute!

I stamped the image and coloured it with promarkers, then cut out a dog kennel shape from some recycled backing card, then made the roof from an old coffee cup sleeve. Die cut an arch shape (sizzix) from burgundy card, and attached it so it looked like the entrance. Die cut some dog themed attachments from a sizzix die. Attached a couple of brads and a Best wishes greeting. Attached it all to a base card.

I think i am going to send this to one of my Brother in law's as he likes dog's.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Just for you.....


It has been a while since my last blog, been busy with the boys, and having a break away.  Trying to get back into my craft room seems such a challenge lately!!

Today's card is one i have made from a sketch on the Bearly Mine Blog challenge.  It is really simple but effective...

I Stamped the image and coloured in with crayons( for a change),  layered it onto a die cut scalloped circle (Spellbinders). Matt and layered the pink spotty paper onto brown patterned paper and then matt and layered some pink daisy patterned paper onto white card. Attached them all onto the base card, I also stamped the Just for you onto a a cut out message tag. Then added some lime green ribbon leaves and white felt and rose bud flowers to finish.

Products used Papermania rose buds, Hot of the press patterned papers, Papermania patterned Daisy paper, white felt flowers from poundland), rubber stamps freebies from magazines.
