Happy Saturday everyone!!
Sorry I am so late in posting today. I was so tired that I slept in this morning and then, I have been on the phone with my friend Heather for the past two and a half hours, so I am blaming it all on her! LOL! Just kidding, I was probably doing more talking than her!
Yesterday Izzy and I were able to get out for a little while but unfortunately the temperature dropped steadily all day and last night so that when I finally woke up this morning it was only 13 degrees!! I couldn't believe it. I thought we were finally starting to warm up again!
Well my best friend Tracy came over last night and we went to Babes 'R Us for some shower gifts and general baby needs. Izzy of course was in hog heaven because Tracy was there. She carried around the gift bag all over the store and kept calling it a purse. Tracy, who is completely wrapped around Izzy's finger, kept trying to convince me that Izzy needed a gift bag of her own. Uh No!!! I just can't believe Tracy sometimes! I think Izzy could ask for the moon and Tracy would try to give it to her! LOL! I just hope that Izzy doesn't realize the power that she holds!!
So onto my great sketch news!! Before Christmas I received an e-mail from Tamara over at Sketches by Tamara asking me to be a guest designer for this Saturday. Of course I said yes! I love Tamara's sketches as they are always so fun and different. It has been so hard sitting on this news, believe me, but now I finally get to reveal it! I decided to use Sketch # 13 for my card as I just loved the ribbon placement!
See what I mean! Aren't the ribbons so awesome!! I just love it. Well, if you don't know already I love dogs! They are so cute, although Jason/DH I don't want another one right now! LOL! So when I saw this stamp at H and M stamps I just had to have it! I started this card by stamping Doggy Years by H and M Stamps on white card stock and colored him in with my copics. Following the sketch I layered on green and rust paper along with DP and popped my image off the background. I cut out a "buckle" and using some rust polka dot ribbon made a collar at the bottom or my image. For the sentiment section, I stamped the sentiment on three different strips of paper and mounted it on rust card stock and green DP. I then tied a ribbon around the sentiment and attached a small dog bone button to the bow. To finish the card, I added three rust brads to the corner! I just love the little doggie on this card and I can just imagine him thinking to himself that he has waited forever to dig into a nice juicy bone!
Well, thank you for sharing in my wonderful news and thanks as always for stopping by!
