Howdy All

I was up early today....4am. All 4 puppies plus my own Yorkie decided they should either sleep with me or cry/scream through the night. I admit to spoiling them but really. 4 Yorkie pups on my chest, and a full grown one on my legs. It was fun for about 2 minutes and then it became more difficult. They all had to lick my face at the same time and boy was that a traffic jam. So, instead of waking everyone up, I climbed out of bed to take us all down to the family room. I decided to start a card...sooooo...

I made this card for Trina`s Timeless Treasures challenge. I had never put ink on this stamp so it was time. I used versafine onyxn black and prismacolored pencils to color in the image.

I wanted to use sage green and brown....I had this great paper and wanted to use it. I like the way it turned out. I used the largest of the rectangle nestabilities and used chocolate brown paper to scallop. When I saw the photo above I realized I had put too bid a white dot in the eyes so I have since added a bit of blue spica pen for her eyes to just sparkle.

I tried the 2 layer flowers first with a brad but it just didn`t do it for me so I went for the button. It`s different and I like it.

The bottom edge looked plain so I used crystal effects and microbeeds to create the line at the bottom.

I can use this card for many things...birthday, get well card, think of you.

Hope you have a really great day. Talk to you later.

Awww, your story about the puppies is so cute. It's like you're mom to them. How sweet that they were all trying to lick your face.

Your card is way cute! You did a beautiful job coloring the image and I love the beads that you added. Very pretty!
