Paw Pals

It's Thursday so time for a new challenge on the Cute Card Thursday blog - and this time we want to see your 'Paw Pals', it could be kitty kats, cute puppies or even teddy bears .. .. whatever you think fits the theme.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Whiff of Joy, stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and to see the rest of the DTs creations.

This cute LOTV stamp was a favourite as soon as he came out and has seen ink several times already.  I've coloured with my Copic pens plus added the sparkly Stardust Stickles - does anyone else notice that there's something in Stickles that makes Copic pens bleed? I might have to rethink my Santa cards this year (save throwing in the bin) and go back to loose glitter and a glue pen.

Here's the card:

I've used papers from the MD Wintertime pad, adding the embossed faux stitching around the edge and inking with brown chalk ink so the stitches show up.  The white snowflakes and doily MD dies I've embossed and inked with a blue chalk ink that's got contaminated with grey .. .. interesting shade though!  I die cut the text and found the red hearts in my waste jar to finish off - nothing too fanciful on this one and all stuck down reasonably flat so should be ok to post at the flat rate.

The Marianne Design things I used for this card include:
Wintertime Paper pack PK9100
Merry Christmas from LR0225
snowflakes CR1225
large white doily LR0112

No challenges I could see to link up with this time.  Today I'm slow getting motivated, overslept and woke with a thick head ... but I need to get on so will go hit the shower!
