You Lift Me Up!

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to create a scene. They're featuring Newton's Nook products, so I used this Newton's Nook image for my card. I colored the sweet dog and sky with Copics, added some die-cut grass to ground him, and then used an EK bricked punch to create the vertical panel. I punched black cardstock, putting a strip of blue behind it, and added a snippet of red & white polka dot dsp to the edge for a little matching color to the tiny red hearts in the image and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a great Wednesday!

What a cute scene to go with that sentiment. It brings a smile to my face. I definitely like the border on the left, it is neat!

Well look at this cutie with his perfect sentiment. I always love that brick die and it look so nice in the blue and black. Have a good evening.

Don't you just love those Newton's Nook stamps!
Love your cute scene and precious card. I can just see Rambo floating away on a balloon.
Finally have a new computer and still trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing. It's not pretty having to re-learn everything!
Hope all is well with you.

OMGosh, this is such a cute card Carol! I love your sweet scene with this little doggie being lifted off the ground by the balloon, too cute!!! Love the brick die cut and that polka dot paper. This is a winner for sure and I love it! Hugs, Brenda

Another darling doggie. Love the side brickwork border, with the red dotty strip. The tiny hearts just add more flavor to this cute card, and you've picked the perfect sentiment to cheer a friend or just say 'hello'. (hmm..don't think I've seen this EK punch around, and must check out Newton's Nook. Never tried their images, but I've seen some cuties around blogland). TFS & Hugs

Hi Carol! I used another Newton's Nook stamp set for the first time today (I just bet it was from you I got the idea to buy it!), LOVE it - so many sweet images and such a great quality too.

Love this card, as always a lovely bit of whimsy from you :)
