Four Legged Friends


I really, really, REALLY wanted to slap a few sequins on here - but since this will be the card that Rambo gives Jim for his birthday later this year I was told (by Rambo of course) that was NOT a guy thing and not add them!  We always do what our little four legged friends want!

I used a recently purchased Hero Arts image on this along with some textured blue card stock, strips of patterned paper scraps, and a Simon Says Stamp sentiment.

This is my take on the sketch from the challenge at Sugar Pea Designs and I'll enter it in their challenge.  They really have some cute stamps. 



Thanks for stopping by........

ohhhhhh, this is such a cute card, and perfect for Rambo to give Jim! He's one smart doxie to avoid the sequins too! LOL I really like how you colored and fussy cut this image, and used it with those striped panels of dsp! Arfee Arfeeeee to Jim (that's doggie speak for happy birthday) :)

This is a perfect stamp for Rambo! I think maybe a couple of sequins would be fun. But then, I'm not a guy.

Lori Kobular said...

Great take on the sketch! Love that sweet puppy! I think Rambo was right that it doesn't need any sequins!

Donna Hanley said...

Jim will be thrilled when he sees Rambo's card. It is so darn cute. I love it when you put sequins on your card, but I can see Rambo's point to leave them off of this particular card. Hope you are having a good day.

NanaConnie said...

It's a perfect Rambo card, Lynn! I'm sure he's right about the sequins but maybe a little confetti? lol Love it all, my friend.

Lesley said...

Here is another case of me thinking I had commented, and oops, I didn't! This sweet doxie set is in the lineup here to get inked. How very precious your card is. It looks amazing, Lynn.

lauren bergold said...

on the other hand, having seen rambo's cards... (he's GREAT at distressing and paper-piercing, lol!!!) ...i'd totally favor your design sense over his!!! surely blue or grey sequins would be considered manly enough, lol??!? :) :) :)

Deepti said...

Hehehe this made me smile :) fun and adorable card !

Shelly Schmidt said...

This is such an awesome card- love your DP too. I have to tell you, every time I see a doxie I think of you : )

Marilyn said...

Super cute card and I'm pretty sure if Rambo says sequins aren't a guy thing, well... maybe they aren't but I don't think either of them would have minded.
Adorable doxie with all the gifts piled up and I like the heart embellie and love the textured paper.

So cute and seems pretty calm with all those gifts on him.
