Bloggers Challenge - Pets
Add a few curves to this women (she is VERY skinny, I am not), add some lined crocs for shoes, add a pooper scooper to her hands and take away the poodle from this picture and this is representation of what I will be doing in a few minutes. I love taking my two dogs (Tank and Joey) for their two walks a day. Usually we head out around 6:30am in the morning for a nice 20 minute walk and then after dinner around 7:30 at night, they get their second walk. I love walking in my neighborhood. The morning is peaceful with the birds singing and scuttering about. The evening is fun, often the neighbor kids are out and they greet the dogs warmly as we go by.
Today's BC theme was pets so I pulled out this often neglected stamp from DeNami. I paper pieced her dress, which was challenging. It was awfully small to cut at some points. Then I layered the card together with this beautiful paper from SU. I just read this papers is being discontinued so if you want it, order it now. It's called 'Elegant Soiree' and it's really, really nice. I may order a second pack. I added a grommet and a Baja Breeze bow and voila - my card is done.
This weekend I am off with a stamping friend to the West Springfield stamp show. I am bringing $50.00 cash (no charge cards for me this weekend) and I will browse around and find some goodies. Can't wait to see what they are showing. Springfield had some tornadoes Tues evening but the fairgrounds where the show is are okay. What are you doing this weekend?
If you want to play with the challenge, just make your 'pet' card, post it to your blog and add your link below. Have fun with it.
