Stamp 265 MFT sketch

Gahhh!! Just getting this in under the wire.  I had in my mind to do this as soon as I got back from CO but lethargy took over and I digi-scrapped instead.  It seemed easier on my brain.  This is due posted on MFT site in two hours.

Wednesday Sketch Challenge #186  My mom needs a card.  She is home from the hospital and rehab and is itching like crazy with the shingles.  I thought this would put a smile on her face.  She loves doggies.

Image and sentiment is from MFT Hang in There (picked it up on super bargain sale) Open-mouthed smile love when that happens.   Die cuts are MFT Blueprints 16.   So the little ring around the puppy….when I cut the circle die, I see it has two stitched lines around it but so disappointed when I cut it out, only one of the stitched circles show on the die and the other is in the negative part of the paper.  so sad. Disappointed smile  Hmmm, what to do?  I found a plain circle die similar in size and very carefully taped it over the stitching that was in the negative portion of scrap paper and YES it worked.  Now I have my double stitching.

I colored my image with distress markers and water brush.  I am liking that water brush more and more. so simple. I thought the wood grain behind would be significant of a dog house.

  1. Reminds me of our mutt, Snoopy. He would howl in that position when he wanted attention. Love this card Janeen.

  2. What a cute little doggy and a sweet card. I hope you mom is on the mend soon. Shingles are no fun. Not, that I've had them but they don't sound pleasant at all!
