Poochie on the Roof

Poochie's in the house! Yippeee!!!! My stamps from The Cat's Pajamas arrived on Friday...I ordered a bunch of Poochies...he reminds me of our mini Schnauzer, Shadow. :)
This image, Pooch on the Roof, is perfect for my friend Janet's Corrosive Challenge #5 because this week's challenge is to make a Christmas card with animals. Plus, I get to knock off my Christmas Card Per Week with this card...double yippeee! I decided to use Jen's Sketch For You To Try for the layout.

Poochie is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto TE Choice Snow White...this cardstock takes ink beautifully for solid image stamps and copics too. There was only a smidge of colouring on this image...talk about whipping up a card in no time! I added some Stardust Stickles to the snow on the roof. The sentiment is also from The Cat's Pajamas.

I used Janet's fave colour combo for this card. The base is Kraft, which I ran through my snowflakes Cuttlebug folder. Then I added a layer of black topped with some Making Memories FaLaLa patterned paper.

The final details are a ghost snowflake with a rhinestone center and some ribbon from my stash. Thanks for a fun challenge Janet, and a great sketch Jen!

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
