Butch & Mimi

Ok, so I know I said I was going to take a little vacation from blogging, but I really wanted to get this challenge posted since technically it was due yesterday. This is our second 3 Little Dreams challenge, and this week we have a sketch challenge. Dream Team member Dani Marcus drew up this nice little sketch for us:

If you don't have a 3 Little Dreams kit, we are asking that you please use either Stamping Bella or Sweet n' Sassy Stamps on your creation. You can load them in our yahoo group, or to SCS (with keyword 3LDAUG) for a chance to win a little something from Katie at the end of the month. You know you're going to be stamping a card soon anyhow, and you know you own at least one bella *wink*, so why not play along?!

Here is my take on the challenge, using Stamping Bella's Butch and Mimi stamp:


Aren't these dogs just adorable? I actually don't have this stamp, but my good friend Lesley (SCS: Hoosierstamper) was kind enough to send me some images of it in a bella image swap we did recently. Thanks Lesley!

I opted not to use a sentiment on the front of the card because there were already so many words on the DP and it just seemed so busy already. I'm thinking of something like "for my best friend" on the inside, but haven't gotten quite that far yet.

I did a double row of paper piercing at the top of the page and drew in some faux stitching with my Chocolate Chip SU! marker. The rest is pretty self explanitory. Ok, seriously now, I probably won't be back until at least Monday. I need to spend some time getting things done around the house that have been neglected in favor of stamping. Like what? Oh, you know, little things... like laundry, dishes, etc. All of that fun stuff! :o)

Enjoy your day!
