A Poochie Challenge!!


Good Thursday morning!!! It's going to be a BEAUTY of a day today, here in Ontario! It's supposed to be the warmest day this week and lovely and sunny!!! I'm up SUPER early this morning because Emileigh has a Badminton tournament with her school and has to be there for 8am!! Ugh!

Normally I am so busy with all my design team requirements, new releases and stuff, that I almost never have time to play with stamps by other companies that I love! The Cats Pajamas is one of those companies!! Unfortunately, I have very few of their stamps at the moment. I was able to get some of the Clearly Swanky Sets when they released them at Christmas time last year and I'd like to get some more....I believe they are releasing a new set this weekend!! I hope my local stamp store gets some in!!!

Anyway, this week Leigh O'Brien is holding a TCP Challenge on her blog and it's a SKETCH challenge, which, as you know, if my FAVOURITE type of challenge! So how could I resist??? And it's a loooooong card, which I love! So, I pulled out this stamp of Poochie holding a flower pot that I got in a Pay It Forward from a friend and stamped it three times. I chose these coordinating patterned papers by Imaginisce because they are so springy and soft! I love the contrast between the gentle colours and the black for the card base and matting. I coloured Poochie using my Copic markers, doodled around the frames and added Stardust Stickles to the centers of the flowers. I pop dotted them on the middle strip, added some yummy American Crafts ribbon along the bottom and some Basic Grey brads at the top. The sentiment panel is made my stamping the Hanna sentiment and punching it out using my Marvy Oval punch and the matting is punched out of Basic Black using my Marvy Scalloped Oval punch. I'm really lovin' the way this turned out and I'm going to add this awesome sketch to my book of sketches.......when I get around to making it!! *giggle*

Have a super sunshiney day!!
