Ribbons and a Critter


My friend Mary Anne loaned me a cute stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps to make Valentine's for next year. Among those in the set was this cute wagon. It comes with a pile of hearts to put in the wagon, but I opted to put this cute little Art Impressions dog in the back instead! The sentiment is from a G studio $1 stamp set I've had for eons and it just seemed perfect for the expression on this chihuahua's face :)

I colored the image with Copics, added some PTI red bitty box dsp and PTI enchanted evening cs. The die is from SNSS and the ribbons are from PTI and Pizzazz Aplenty. The yellow stars were cut from snippets of cardstock in my bin. I had a few stars left over, so I randomly stuck them on the card to fill in the white spaces.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash #154 - Pet or animal/critter theme
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #9 - "R" is for ribbon (use ribbon on your card)
Snippets Playground #127 - Use Snippets
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is just perfect!

This is my kind of card, my friend. I love to make scenes and use my stamps together. Bravo! You sure put that wagon to good use! The thunder has started, so I must cut this short. Boo...

The dog in the wagon is darling...too cute. My friend is just starting to make dog cards so will show this to her! She is going to love this idea too!

Great fun and bright design...perfect for this little Mr Perky Puppy!

Your card is adorable! I love the details and the cute image. However,it is a fine line for our challenge theme and I'm going to have to ask our designers if they think a wagon qualifies for a buggy. I know that horses pull wagons and buggies so we may have to research it a bit as I don't want others to become confused. I hope you understand. Again, I do love your card and appreciate you sharing it with us at Cards in Envy.

OMGosh, this is just too cute Carol! I am loving your little dog in the wagon and yes he looks like he is saying "are we there yet?". lol He so looks like he wants out of there! Love the ribbons and papers you used and I love the angle of which you placed the paper! Hugs, Brenda
