Watching my youngest son (he's four) develop a relationship with our yellow lab (he's nine!) has been amazing. He's taken to calling Tulley "his puppy" and is constantly quite concerned about his whereabouts. Often times I find him sneaking food to the dog, explaining to the dog duties of a being a partner in crime, or resting his head on the dog's belly. It's really sweet and I need to remember to let him savor these moments while I can (even if it means a couple extra pounds of weight for the dog or possibly being hit with a nerf bullet...)
Mandy at Limelight Papercrafts has this fabulous sketch challenge and this week you can have a chance to win a prize of Basic Grey Sugar Rush Woolies if you participate and use chipboard! I'd love to see your interpretation of this challenge for sure.
My card started with the negative image of a chipboard flower that I covered in paper. I stamped this cute puppy onto a panel and then glued it behind the chipboard piece. I slightly offset the big circle so I could have room for a sentiment.
Limelight has some super amazing store closing deals-including sales on a few Lawn Fawn Stamp sets!
