Yappy Day!!! Sketch Challenge 162

As I am a dog lover, as soon as I saw this set Yappy Day - SU, I had to have it. I thought it would be great for this challenge.

I also thought it was a great idea to use my scrap pieces of paper. We all have them and I know I never make it a point to use them. It really is such a waste not to use them up.

I am really loving the looks of the scalloped edge right now.....and of course the ticket corner punch.

Here is the link to the Challenge at Splitcoaststampers

Ok, now the details of the card. PS, I will always work from the base of the card up. I think it is easier explaining it this way, as that is normally how I assembled the card.

Card base is Chocolate Chip - SU 4"1/4 x 5"1/2. Shimmery White - SU 4" x 5 1/4 then I used the round corner punch for the scalloped edge, then I punched all the holes with the smallest hand punch and applied my Brads (bone shaped). Purely Pomegrante - SU 4" 3/4 x 2", ticket corner - SU punched all corners, Wild Wasabi textured - SU 3" 3/8 x 2" 1/2, ticket cornered only the upper 2 corners, Soft Sky - SU 4" x 2" 1/2, Shimmery White - SU 2" 1/16 x 3" 7/8 stamped the bone with creamy caramel - SU.

As for the Dogs and the house, I used watercolor paper, then cut them out using an exacto knife once the paper had dried. Then I put the house on flat, and popped up both of the dogs. As Joyce would say, "but you hate cutting little things out", you know I do.......hehehe). I know most of you are looking at this and saying, "she should have colored the Poodle different". I just can't, my family had a black Poodle (he is now in doggy heaven) and I will always color them Black in memory of my MacKenzie. (tears are flowing)

I did this little guy awhile ago, but as I was posting Yappy Days set, I figured I would share these as well. They are Shaker Magnets (like you couldn't tell ;-)) They are just missing a little bit of paw printed ribbon around them.

Enjoy, TFL

So cute! What is in the shakers? Do they stay sealed well?
