I have this blog as a place to share my creative self -- be it card making, music playing, scrapbooking, altered art, home decor, or whatever direction my art takes me. My dogs are always a part of my home life, so they have to be a part of my blog, too.
I have today off, and I spent some time creating this card. I made it for 2 reasons: 1) this image takes me right back to childhood and my first pet, Sniffer, and 2) I'm applying for The Paper Shelter's design team and wanted to use one of their images when I apply. What better image than this one that brings back such fond memories!
On with it! Let's see the card!
This is Peaceful Easter from The Paper Shelter. If you are unfamiliar with The Paper Shelter and their products, every image purchased comes with a black and white version of the digital stamp (in PNG and JPG), a colored version, a matching paper, and a composition. How great is that?!? I have purchased and used their pre-colored images when I'm in a hurry, along with the digi paper, and they are wonderful.
I colored Peaceful Easter with Copic markers, using the colors of Sniffer (white with pink nose and ears), and using the color of my hair in childhood. However, my hair was never that neat!
I made this card in my typical style to show The Paper Shelter. As always, the image takes front and center. I used several Spellbinders dies on this, and a Prima Marketing doily die. Designer papers, shimmer trim, and card stock are from Close To My Heart. The tie dye crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. The stickpin was made for me by a friend. You have to love friends! Speaking of friends, "Julie's 3rd Blogoversary Blog Hop" is fast approaching. It's March 20-22. I've gathered friends and many sponsors for a fun hop. I hope you can join us. The fun starts here!
The Paper Shelter wanted our email addresses. Mine is somewhere on my blog, but it's quite obscure. To make it easier for TPS to find me, here it is: julieodil at charter dot net. Thanks so much for checking out my blog!
