Well, it's STILL snowing in Western New York! I'm okay with it because I finished TWO cards this morning and I want to show you both of them! This is an image from Mo's Digital Pencil. I'm so sorry I can't find it in her store. It was one of the freebies on Paper Craft Planet when she reached a milestone in memberships. I'm not sure what number, but you may be able to find it there for FREE! I love the paper on this card. I saw them first on Paulabella's blog.
My touch was to add the homemade chipboard buttons. I used the Sizzix button die that I got from SU, cut them from Cool Caribbean and cardboard then glued them together and sponged the edges with Teal. After that I tied yellow embroidery floss through them. Neat!
Mo's wonderful illustration is colored with copics-I think this kid's mom owns Geranimals! Even his sneakers match!! And the dog collar!
(I'm lovin' Cool Caribbean with Teal and Kiwi green! More to come with this combo!! You betcha!

This quickie card is one I made to mail to a friend of ours who fell and broke his hip. They have two new Golden puppies so I made the dog all yellow.
Wishing him a speedy recovery!
Thanks so much for coming by! Coming soon will be the Copic Creations challenge AND the Magnolia-licious March monthly challenge which is a fab sketch by our Jacque!
Enjoy your day! I'm off to dig the car out for a trip to the Post office-blog candy to get in the mail!

Love the puppy card. I have the same stamp and colored him similarly but was unsure what colors or paper to mount him on... thanks for the idea. Was just wondering if you free handed the black line border around him or is that a stamp? Thanks.

These are so cute! Lovin' the teal and cool carribean! And those buttons are so fun! I'll have to look into that SU die!

PS...I read your comment that you were off yesterday late in the day. So glad I didn't see that earlier or I would have been bummed all day! We so wanted a snow day! I don't think we'll have any after this! Lucky girl!

Those are so cute! I love, love, love Cool Caribbean - I swear, SU should have made that a permanent color!! I will be trying that color combo for sure! :)

Isn't it great to not feel guilty for being inside stamping! Same here in MA today - snow showers and cold! I love both of your wonderful cards Cheryl! that little cookie eating boy is adorable and the pup looks so darn comfy on his personal couch!
