We're going to the dogs...

I made 3 cards for a co-worker that's moving into another position within our organization. True, she's not totally leaving but those of us that were working with her on a daily basis will definitely miss her. So I made some cards to show her that. She's a dog lover (she has 3 of her own and is part of a local dog training organization too) so the choice of images was pretty easy (all are from Meljen's). :) Here they are and the challenges I was inspired by for each:
1. Crafty Cardmakers - use something you got for free: I got the dog bone template for the card base for free on-line
2. Flourishes - anything goes but buttons and bow
3. Frosted Designs  - die cuts: the image, mat and sentiment panel are all die cut
4. Lots To Do - easel or shaped card
5. Paper Makeup Stamps  - don't be square
6. Simple Doodles - shape it out
7. The Sweet Stop - sketch...we'll very loosely based on this sketch :)
8. Totally Gorjuss -  sparkle

1. Aly's Sunday Challenge - distressed
2. Challenge up your life - easel card
3. I Did it Creations Challenge - "surprise me"
4. Mark's Finest Papers – Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge - use die cuts/punch
5. Meljens Design Team and Challenge: anything goes
6. Sentimental Sundays - distressing + sentiment
7. The Crazy Challenge - tons of shapes
8. the sweetest thing... - sketch
1. For Fun Challenges - red, brown, and cream
2. INKY IMPRESSIONS CHALLENGES -  add flowers
3. Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!
Aloha,

What fun cards! Don't think I can pick '1' favorite, they are all so cute! I have a strange feeling that Malie helped you design these, you are both so creative - you at designing and her at hiding her treats! Have a great day!

Love, SAM aka MOM
