My DD brought me my new Elzybells stamps and I wanted to ink them up as soon as possible. The first one is for Poetic Artistry's Mojo Monday #15. It's a cute sketch and I thought it would work well with this little fellow. I did some paper piecing on the balloon for interest. Also, I stamped some little dog items, also from Elzybells, on the cross piece. While you can't really see them well, they are a dog dish, a slipper and a dog collar. The little paw prints are by Pink Cat Studio. I used some Caramel Fun Flock on the dog's body, but not his face as it would have covered up his eyes, nose and mouth which are just to cute to cover. Then, I mixed some white and blue Fun Flock and just dabbed by glue pen in hopes it would look like clouds. I added some Prima flowers and dog bone brads from Archivers. Hope you like it.
This is also a Poetic Artistry sketch, but it was for last Monday. I really liked it so thought I would use it even though it's too late to be entered, but that's okay by me. Sketches are necessary to me so when I see one I like, I take advantage of it. This is going to be sent to the Mom of one of my Shackie friends who is recovering from a nasty little bug. I hope he makes her feel better. For this card I started with Cool Caribbean cardstock, added a little Petals & Paisleys DP by SU. I left the mat a little larger on the right-hand side where I placed my ribbon. The 'just a note' is by Elzybells and the 'get well soon' is from PTI's Little Lady set. And that's all there is to this card. I hope Tami's Mom likes it.
