Poochie Christmas

Well I am home safe & sound & I must say after nearly 2 weeks it was sweet to be in my own bed last night!! I had an absolutely fantastic time at Karen's and in TO BUT I am one tired girl!

I made this card last week before leaving Karen's but didn't get the post done - we were having too much fun at Bare Essentials that night (how I wish that store was in Canada!!)

For this card I used Mercy's sketch from last week (technically still this week) MTSC39. Poochie is stamped with mementos ink and I paper pieced his shirt. The DS paper is from Making Memories (Falala) and it's layered on Prism Spring Willow medium and paper pierced. The bottom layer is bravo burgundy which I embossed with cuttlebugs swiss dots folders. I used build a brads but instead used crystal effects on top; which I love the look of & now I think my brads will get used! I finished it off with burgundy grosgrain ribbon.

I am off to put my stuff away; my stamping suitcase (yes it's separate from the clothes one - good thing I can check 2!) was much heavier on the way home so I am off to find my room so I can play with all my new stuff!!

Have a great day - make sure you pop over to Mercy's on Tuesday for this weeks sketch

Cute! That is one perfect bow, my friend - did you use the Bow Easy? I use crystal effects now too for my Build a Brads - I find the clear sticky things that come with it don't stick. Great tip, TFS!
