Weenie Time!


I knew when I spotted this funny Repeat Impressions sentiment stamp at a stamp expo recently that I'd find lots of uses for it, and I was right! This time I'm using it with a dachshund image since these dogs are often called "weiner dogs." The dog stamp is from Art Impressions, and I stamped it on a piece of retired SU! newsprint dsp, then colored it with Copics. The grass and flowers were done with stamps by Judith. I added some cloud stickers and a die-cut layered button done with an IO button die. I used a retired SU! spiral punch so I could play along with the SOS #156 - which is to use your oldest punch or die. 

I just wanted to remind you of a few challenges that you still have time to play along with. The Words 2 Scrap By #6 still has a few days left to get your entry in, and the challenge is "Oh, the places you'll go!" With graduations and weddings in the month of June that should give you some ideas to make cards to enter that challenge! Click the link above and maybe you'll be inspired to play along too!

Also, Deedee's digis June challenge is still in full swing and you have plenty of time to play along! Make a card and play along with us in June, and Deedee will mail you July's digi completely free! You can also purchase this month's featured digi at a reduced price, or get it free with a $10 purchase from the store. You can find all the details here.

That's going to do it for me today, but have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

I have to tell you a short story I think about every time I see this sentiment. When my youngest son was ... young/little, I called him a weenie. He looked crushed, and asked what I meant by that. I told him he wasn't trying his hardest. He said, "Okay, then SAY that, because 'weenie' is not a nice thing to call a little boy." I still laugh, but he was so logical!

Oh, and cute card. :)

Just precious. I love the dog stamp and also the sentiment. Those cloud stickers are cute and the grass/flowers really brightens up everything. Have yourself a nice day even though it is hot outside.

You always have the cutest puppy stamps. This one is no exception. He is just doggoned cute the way you've colored him and the papers you have added to the card. Love that you stamped & colored him on DP. Need to try to remember that trick. That sentiment made me just laugh, and loved this puppy's pretty flowers! Delightful card. TFS & Hugs

WEENIE! lol! I love it! That is ALL my kids will call dachshunds...to be fair it's much easier to pronounce :) Love this sentiment - it would make such a great pick-me-up for a friend (maybe one going through a divorce? Plenty of weenies there!) Love it :)
