Puppy Party Punchie...

I am still working away on all those birthday cards we're needing here soon. This time I have gone back to another of Jackie Topa's fabulous punch art creations...and have dubbed it puppy party.

List of Ingredients:

Chocolate Chip (Textured), Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss (Textured), Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Basic Black and Real Red
Stamps: Lots of Thoughts (SU)
Ink: Whisper White Craft Ink
Punches: Word Window, Wide Oval, Large Oval, Small Oval, 3/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Circle, 1/2" Circle, 1/4" Circle, Heart to Heart
Accessories: Pure Poppy Bakers Twine (PTI), Woodgrain Embossing Folder (Craft Concepts), Divine Swirl Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Vintage Cream Pure Wool Felt (PTI), Brown Lettering (CM), Cloud 1 & 2 Die Collection (PTI), Mounting Foam (Kaisercraft), Mini Glue Dots (SU), Crystal Effects (SU), White Gel Pen and SNAIL Adhesive.

I have hand cut the long grass at the kennel door since I don't have a punch for that...but I know there are some groovy ones out there that do that too! I have also hand cut the kite. The puppy (I know...he is large for a puppy ;-) originally had horizontal slot eyebrows too....but no matter which orientation I put them in, he seemed to look either sad or angry. So I ditched them. case you were wondering...the 'R' stands for Rover...of course!

Overall, I am pretty pleased with how this one turned out. Hope the birthday boy likes him too!

Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
