A Doubledog Dare!

By tomorrow I'll be about 3 weeks behind on my DDC cards so I sat down and stamped tonight to at least pull it in by one week!! My talented friend Julia's (aka Create with Me), stamper designer teacher extraordinaire hosted the DDC the week of April 20. She sent us a link to the cutest Two Scoops Digi image which is FREE to use from their website! I had started this one immediately because the little pup is so dang cute, and time just got away after that. I do that a lot, color an image, then can't figure out what I want to do with it on a card. So when I sat down tonight to mess around with it, I almost ended up starting all over again. But I finally settled on cutting it into equal squares and adhering the image pieces to black cs -- mosaic style. I still had the KC&Co. Que Sera Sera DP out on my desk from this past weekend so I found some that matched, ran it through my BS with the bubble EF and mounted the image onto it. I "spotted" the bottom border with faux yellow jewels, tied a little scrap of brown polka-dotted ribbon I had and attached it to the image with a mini-clip from SU (you can't believe how tiny those things are!!). Anyhow, I have two more to go...I'll plan to do more stamping tomorrow night! Hugs to all. Thanks for checking in!!
