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 http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=322082

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?
