For the Dogs

The Kite Flying Fhiona set from Your Next Stamp is still sitting on my desk.  Honestly, there are so many great images in the set and I am full of ideas that I can't wait to share.  Here is one of those ideas, using the cute dog image, which just happens to look like my own pup!

I took the sketch from Paper Player's challenge #43 and kept it CAS.  I also think the images are super cute, which fits with Wee Memories challenge #52, All Things Adorable - and the sponsor is Your Next Stamp!!!

Well, one card was not enough!  Once I had the dogs, of course I needed a card with Fhiona walking a dog :>)
I added lots of texture to this one with embossing, paper grass, and ribbon, which fits in with the Your Next Stamp challenge #40 - "Texture It".  Plus, texture is Paper Sundaes' challenge #65.  The layout is based on Mojo Monday's sketch #187.  I have to give this one a try too in Wee Memories challenge #52, All Things Adorable!!!

Even two cards are not enough, I told you I was having fun with this set.  I actually stamped about 2 dozen of these pups on different PP and have been fussy cutting whenever I was in the car passenger seat the past couple weeks.   Even though this is a "girl" set, the dog is one of those images that would be good for a "boy" card too! 

I still have more dogs that I cut out, so don't be surprised if I sneak in another "walking the dog" card.
Smiles,
Julie
