If I Were a Dog........


Well, I hope all my Canadian friends had a lovely day yesterday, whether you spent it relaxing in your backyard or out doing Canada Day things! Yesterday we just chilled out at home and had a couple of visitors. We did some barbecuing and of course, I got to stamp!! Heehee! Emileigh and her girlfriend went and took in the Canada Day celebrations at the park and then stayed for the fireworks. We could actually see them from our backyard too! It was nice but quite cool!

Today is our actual holiday from work, so that's nice. I have a million things to do.....no, literally! I'm not kidding. The library has asked me to do a display of my scrapbook pages and stamped cards, so I have to put that all together to take to work tomorrow. Also I have an out of town Stamp Camp on Thursday and one here at my house on Sunday. Every year I call them "Kimmie's Katalogue Kickoff Party"...heehee! I know everyone is itching to get their hands on the new catalogues and I can't WAIT to place an order!!! I need the new papers and new ribbons aaaahhhha!!

Anyway, on to the card. I made this one yesterday using my Whipper Snapper stamp called Pup 'n Bone. He's so cute. And no, he isn't one of the new ones I purchased this past weekend!! Tsk, tsk. You thought I'd spill the beans!!! I stamped him in Archival Versafine in Black Onyx ink on shimmery white paper and used my Stampin' Up markers to colour him in. On this paper, I find that I can shade areas by going over it again with the same colour marker, like the underside of his belly. I doodled around the frame and then offset two pieces of cardstock behind him in Vintage Violet and Certainly Celery. The patterned paper is by Flair Designs and the card base is VV. The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkadoo and I stamped it right on the pp in Black Onyx. I added some of the VV stitched grosgrain, which you can't get anymore and also those little white bones at the bottom are from an All Night Media punch. I pop dotted the main image and I'm done!

There were a couple of questions in the last post so I will try to answer them all. RSNutt asked about the 'Piggies in Tutus' stamp and who the maker is. Well, actually it is a row of 3 Hedgehogs in Tutus....hahaha!! Maybe the picture doesn't show them too well, but it is by Penny Black!! I LOVE PB stamps! She also asked about Moose stamps. Well High Hopes Stamps (who I am a Design Team Member for), has some awesome Moose stamps!! Go to the site and search for Moose! There is Mudzie Moose and Milton Moose....I just love them! And Shelby asked about the Flip Flops stamp and it too, is by High Hopes! Here is the link to their site: www.highhopesstamps.com . Tina is a doll to work with and be sure to tell her that Kimmie sent ya!! I want her to know she made a good choice asking me to be on her Design Team!!! Speaking of which, I am working on some exciting stuff with High Hopes right now......but I can't tell you yet!!! There are some cool things in the works and I'll share them with you a little later!! *giggle*

Well, today I'll be busy working on the cards for my Katalogue Kickoff parties, so I'd better get to it! Hope you have a wonderful day, and don't forget to comment to be eligible to win my Kimmie's Kandy!!

What an adorable card. The sentiment just makes me laugh! Sound like you're a busy gal. Have fun with your display and your Kick-offs.

That sentiment is just hysterical...I can just picture you wiggling back and forth! *snort*

Good luck on your "showcase" at the library and on your catty kickoff...
