a romantic dog smiles for you! { Penny Black }


Don't you just love this little doxie stamp "a romantic dog" by Penny Black? Recently, I saw this quote "dogs smile with their tails" and I knew that I had to make a card using the quote with this image. I typed it up in Word, using my Stampin' Up! font CD and printed it off on white cardstock. I colored the image with prismacolor pencils to match the paper. :) Can we say OCD?


The cardstock is a retired SU color marvelous magenta that I thought went well with this striped paper by KI Memories. The card is 6x6 folded in half to make a 3x6 card. I like the long narrow card for this image. I've added some polka dot ribbon (Walmart) and a Stampin' Up! flower punch with large brad. How do you attach ribbon to your cards? I've found that using "sticky strip" works perfectly. It is a double sided narrow tape that is super sticky. Mine is by Stampin' Up! but I know there are other brands of it too. I've got a couple different rubber stamps here that would be perfect for the inside sentiment: "My heart smiles with thoughts of you" and "Sending smiles your way". This was a FUN card to create and I hope it makes you *smile*! :)

Eeeks, I think I'm boiling my green beans over on the stove! Later....
