Happy Pawlidays!

Hi there, blog friends ~
I have two cards to share ...My first card is for Freshly Made Sketches, using this cute little Christmas pup stamp from MFT. 




I used Copic markers to color the puppy and added Glossy Accents to the light bulbs. The berries on the wreath were made with Nuvo drops and the die cut sentiment was cut with gold foil. Also, the striped paper is from WRMK...acetate and gold foil...so pretty IRL.

*******************

For the past week, I've been hunting through my stash for a sentiment for the CASology cue card (Sorry), and shortly after I finished my first card, I found it! The irony is the pup from my first card works perfectly for this card, so I decided to use it again...hope you don't mind :)




This time I colored the pup in light brown and I also changed the colors on the Christmas tree lights. The brick background was stenciled in grout gray and the sentiment was stamped using MFT Label Maker Sentiments. 
That's it for me...have a wonderful week ahead!

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Happy Pawlidays, Label Maker Sentiments
Dies: MFT - Happy Pawlidays, Joy; SSS - Wreath
Stencils: MFT - English Brick Wall
Paper: MFT - Gold Foil; WRMK - Acetate (Clearly Posh)
Misc: Copic Markers, Glossy Accents, Nuvo Red Berry Crystal Drops

That sweet puppy is so adorable. You have to smile when you see him all tangled in the Christmas lights. :) Two beautiful cards, Barb. Love the lovely gold shine on the first, and the stenciled background on the second. Great work! xx

So fun to see the same adorable pup on 2 very different cards. So very versatile. Love how you have colored him, and the sorry sentiment is absolutely perfect with the image of the puppy who has gotten into the Christmas lights. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Go ahead, Barb, use him again, and again! I adore that little guy, and your glossy accenting on the bulbs! Terrific times two, in my book! xx

The only thing better than seeing one sweet tangled-in-the-lights puppy is seeing two! And oh, what sweeties they are! The first fills me with joy; the second - apology accepted! Who can resist that face!
