Happy Together

Hi there and Happy Friday to everyone! I'll be super busy today getting ready for my dd's Halloween Costume Party tonight - 20 of her closest friends all dressed up and ready for fun!

You know Friday is Stamp Something Challenge day and this week's theme is to Stamp Something Rubber! Don't use digis for this one! We are also using Pink since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! I am blessed to be friends with several 'survivors' of breast cancer. So Stamp Something with Some Pink!

My image is from Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design and it is called Me and My Buddy. This little dog looks just like my Pomeranian, but I didn't color it the same as my dog...too much black and I wanted it to be lighter! I colored this adorable little girl and her four-footed friend with Copics and cut it out with Spellbinders Labels 8. The papers are from my favorite My Minds Eye line called Pretty Please and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

I also used my Spellbinders scalloped circles set to cut the edge for my half circle portion of the sketch, but I have a trick! The circle isn't large enough, so I cut it in half and positioned it above and below the center so it looks like a whole piece. My image was going to cover it anyway so you can't see the missing area. I then used a Fiskars template to cut the half circle which also covers my 'trick.' All the edges are inked with ColorBox Coral Rose and I added some grosgrain ribbon covered with sheer ribbon and a few pearls. The flowers are Prima and Recollections mini roses and the pin is a Maya Road trinket pin with added beads.

Be sure to stop on over at the Stamp Something Challenge and take a look at our Design Team samples too. You're in for a treat if you do!

Challenges:
Digi Bells Guest DT Call - using EB image and sketch
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #90 - No Buttons or Bows

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Adorable card, Pattie! I love that colour combo! Are you having the party at your house? Sounds like lots of fun! I was so busy finishing my daughter's costume for her class party this afternoon, I didn't get breakfast until 12:30! LOL... Hopefully it makes it home in one piece so I won't have to redo it all for Halloween.
