Boo-Ya



This grumpy pug doesn't look like he's anticipating a very happy Christmas does he? LOL It's an image by Stamping Bella and I knew right away who I'd make this card for. We have relatives that have a chubby pug that never looks happy about much of anything LOL I colored the image with Copics, adding a Tim Holtz Santa hat with some liquid applique on the fur and die-cut it with a MFT stitched circle die. I made the sentiment panel with little wooden stick stamps - since I didn't have any stamp that seemed appropriate for this image. lol The dsp is all from a Fancy Pants Blissful Blizzard paper pad I've had for longer than I care to mention...yes, I'm a paper hoarder.  The little tab at the top was done with a (r) SU! mini banner punch and I added a SU! enamel dot in a matching color.

I'll share this with the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies December challenge - just use a critter on your creation.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

This is the cutest pug ever. Those grumpy looks seem to be going around and this is a great one. I love that plaid paper and I hoard my paper too. Not because I don't want to use it but I never seem to have the right color or pattern to use. I admit though it's hard to cut into it! I have been trying.

Oh blimey, that's one hell of an unhappy pug but tbh I think Stamping Bella captured the look of the dog perfectly. I love how you've made him seem more miserable by adding a Christmas hat... that's funny Carol, if he could talk can you imagine lol. Great card and I'm sure your relatives are going to get a good laugh out of it x

So cute, Carol! Your little pug might look grumpy but this is sure to bring a smile to the recipient! I love your coloring and the puffy hat! I will just say that I too still have some of this same paper in my stash from long ago! Never thought to use it for a Christmas card! I might just have to give that idea a try! Thanks!
