When I saw today's sketch from Karen @ the sweetest thing I was soooooo excited because I knew that I would be able to use a LOT of patterned paper! Woo hoo!! Sometimes a sketch can be fun, but you don't get to see much of the fun papers, so I really loved this one!
Also, I would finally be able to use my ric rac border die from Taylored Expressions!
I knew that I wanted to use it for the line between the 2 triangles,
so now I just needed to decide on the papers and the image.
This past week when I colored the paper smooches dog from Woofers & Tweeters, it brought back a lof of memories of my mini daschund. He was only 9 pounds so when he played in the flowers I couldn't even see him! That's the inspiration for today's card.
I even put the sentiment in the patterned paper...
Well... I did it on purpose... my dog used to coax me to play by crouching and hiding in the flowers, so this worked for me as the dog and the words are hiding in the flowers.
I paper pieced this portly little pup and shaded with copics.
I REALLY LOVED this sketch and I am working on at least 1 more, if not 2 more with this same sketch for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #184.
Mother's Day was AWESOME!! My family gave me a marker holder for my new copics, a few new die-namics, and some organizational cubes for my stamping room. My hubby took my kids to an amusement park for a few hours so that I could organize my stamps and create a few cards!
This one is finished and 2 more are in progress on my stamping desk.
YAY FOR MOTHER'S DAY!!!
