First, I have the paper kind to share with you!
YNS challenge is paper piecing well it was time to pull 'em out! Plus, I need a "boy" b-day card for this weekend (or more appropriately, my sons' need a card to give). Now in addition to the YNS challenge, my "boy" card is also for Yvonne Yam's guest designer challenge from Lynn Miller to recycle! The recycling is the plastic "stick" the flag is waving from. In it's former life it held a lollipop :>) The layout is based on sketch #133 from Card Patterns.
Now you know when I use this stamp one card is never enough and I also need a "girl" card for next weekend.
My card is just 3" x 3". I took inspiration from the latest CAS-ual Friday's challenge to make a mini card and combined that with the Paper Player's CAS Animal or Plant challenge.
Part of the reason I may love this little pup stamp so much is that he looks like my own pup, Bolt. He truly is the sweetest and I love him even after he gets loose and I have to chase him around the neighborhood! Even after he digs up my potted plant, digs huge holes around the tree in our FRONT yard, rips a hole in my DD's comforter to bury a bone in the house, or when he chews the kids toys that are left on the floor (that at least helps keep the amount of toys in check!). Believe me, he has a few habits that I would love to break, but regardless his sweet personality outweighs all the digging and chewing!
