Back again with another stamped card to share with you. Today’s card is a birthday one.
Lean in close, friends. A little secret about this card. I had planned to use a different dog in the set for my card. The intended dog? A fluffy Pomeranian that reminds me of my Marley and whose name I always sign with cards to my grandma. However my coloring looked awful so I went with this little dog instead as I had colored at the same time and he looked pretty good. Good thing my grandma won’t mind that it’s not a Pom. 😉
To give the little dog a little extra personality, I added a party hat and cupcake. What dog doesn’t look great in a party hat? Well, that is all dogs that will actually allow themselves to wear party hats. 😉 (For the record, Marley typically knocks off any hats I put on it, but I continue to try. Wink!)
The papers are just an assortment of scraps from my box of scraps. The colors aren’t exactly all the same, but I think it’s OK sometimes to just give yourself permission to run with it and say, “I don’t need to be perfect today. My card does not need to be perfect today.” I mean, there are no card police officers out there, at least last time I checked there were not.
Alright, that’s what I got for you. I’ll be back again later, gators. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
