Crazy Daisy!!!


Consider this my Saturday/Sunday posting, because we're taking off for the weekend!! Yaaaaaaaaay!! Since this is my last weekend off before Emileigh goes back to school, we decided to take off to Toronto and do something fun!!

This afternoon we will be dropping off our maniacal Jack Russell Terrier at my in-law's house and then heading to the city! Our plan is to maybe do some shopping or something this evening and then go to the hotel, which has a pool!! When Emileigh was little, that was her favourite part of any trip.....staying at the hotel!!

Tomorrow we will be going to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) which is right on the lake and has a TON of fun things to do. Check out the link!! There are tons of shows and a daily parade, concerts, rides and of course the best part, SHOPPING!! Apparently there are pavillions with outlet stores and lots of good bargoons!! I can't wait! The weather is supposed to be decent tomorrow too!

So this card I whipped up last night to give my in-laws for keeping the dog while we are away. This stamp, along with a couple of other cute Whipper Snapper stamps, were sent to me by my Secret Pal, Terri!! This little guy looks almost exactly like our mutt!! It's perfect!!

I stamped the image on shimmery white cardstock and coloured it using my SU markers and doodled around the square. I matted it on Chocolate Chip and then used some SU patterned paper (it's retired now) and distressed the edges. The card itself is a 4 1/4 square of whisper white, matted with Chocolate Chip and stamped with the little pawprint stamp Terri also sent me. Then I used some SU eyelets in the corners, added some wrinkled brown ribbon that I got at Julee's store and added a cute little metal Around the Block dog charm that says FETCH that I got at Stamp Art yesterday. We'll pick them up a little something in Toronto to thank them along with the card.

So I'm off and I'll see you on Monday!! Don't forget, you only have until Wednesday night to enter into the Kard Kontest, so get a-stampin'!!! *wink*

We too are going away for the night. My son loves to use the hotel pool and order ice cream from room service. It's our mini vacation before school starts. Have a great time. I'm sure your in-laws loved that card. It is so cute.

I have a question for you...how do you get your doodling around the edges looking so great. Is there a trick to it? This card is great, I'm loving the doggie.
