Webster's tilting his head

I had one of those days today where I just injured myself from start to finish!  First I sliced into my thumb when cutting the carrots, then I snipped my finger with my scissors when making this card and to finish me off I whacked my thumb on a shelf.  Ouch, ouch and ouch!

Anyway, enough waffle ....  here's a sweet little puppy for you (and a naughty one at the very bottom of my post!)  This is Webster's tilting his head from Eat Cake Graphics - coloured with watercolour pencils and popped up on dimensionals.

My general card design was inspired by this week's featured stamper at Splitcoast - here's Virginia's original.

I must confess, it felt like it took FOREVER to make this card!  I splattered my BG with white paint (I love my Tim Holtz splatter paintbrush thingy) and then die cut the sentiment (Simon Says Stamp).  I added clear gloss and glitter to the white sentiment.  Sequins from Taylored Expressions and some clear bling to finish.  (The colour of the base is more like the pinky colour in the close up)

And just to finish the doggy theme, here's a wee pic of Rubydoo.  She has the whole garden to sit in, and where does she choose?  Yip, the middle of my border.  Don't think the delphinium will recover (don't look at the weeds LOL)


  1. Love the bright clean look to your card, can I say that when it has splatters?. You know what I mean, I hope. If not, then we'll blame the meds! Why do pets always insist in sitting in the one place they really shouldn't? Got to love them for it! Cara x

  2. Oh my, Rubydoo is about as cute as she can be! She wouldnt' be in trouble with me with that sweet face :) I love your card - very classic and wonderfully fun!

  3. It looks like you adhered a number of the Happy Birthday die-cuts from the pink cardstock and adhered them at an angle. I love the look of it! Sweet card. That little doggie is so cute. I have to say, though, he doesn't hold a candle to your Ruby. She's gorgeous!

  4. Love this card Lynne, the colour is fab, such a cute stamp and the details are perfect. Pleased you are joining in at AYLI and having Ruby along too is an added bonus!! xx

  5. Love your doggy card, did have chuckle about Rubydoo in the flower bed.

    Your little Ruby is gorgeous (even if your delphiniums won't be!!!)
