Hello Monday my friends! I hope this finds you well. We have a super fun challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - IT'S A DOG'S LIFE.
UPDATE: I AM HONORED TO HAVE MY CARD SELECTED AS A FAVORITE FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 16 AT SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS!! THANK YOU!
Our Jack Russell, Jasper, lived 19 good years with us. Sadly, he passed over the rainbow bridge several years ago and we really miss him. He was definitely top dog in our house and knew how to run things. One of his favorite things to do was to jump in the car when we said "go for ride?" Of course, he would jump in even if we didn't say that, and there was the one time he jumped into the postman's vehicle - in one side and out the other when he realized it wasn't us. So many good stories of a dog's life. So have fun with the challenge this week!
I started out with some paint and stencils.
Once dry, I stamped the words on, but it wasn't straight and didn't show up enough, so I ended up restamping it. My stenciled stars are more blobs because I used a bit too much paint, but all's well in the end.
Images are stamped and colored...(the dragon is from the Tim Holtz Stamptember 2019 set )
A couple of good friends ready to head out and party! Who talked them into the pink and orange polka dot bow ties? Well, maybe if we keep our shades on, no one will notice us!
Card all layered up and ready to go, or so I thought until I added sprinkles for the background.
I decided to add a sprinkling of bling across the card for a fun touch.
Good friends don't let you do stupid things....alone
Apparently my dog's life is a party life, and looks like he has a good friend to hang out with! I hope you are inspired to come join us this week and share your version of It's a Dog's Life with us!
As you may know, the Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.
We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!
