ACHOO!




Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is "Get Well/Sympathy. Create a card using one of those themes.

I made this adorable card today using My Craft Spot's Feel Better Soon stamp set. This is the perfect sentiment set for get well cards and has a wonderful variety of sayings.

I stamped and paper pieced the dog using Peachy Keen's Howling Puppy. Some of my Peachy Keen DT sisters used this technique on their dogs and I just had to try one for myself. You actually "dot" the colors on using Copic markers. I think it turned out cute!
I embossed the background using the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder and stamped the "Achoo" sentiment by his nose....I think it looks like he could be sneezing, how about you?
I stamped the other sentiment onto a banner and added some tiny buttons to the sides. For the top pennant I used My Craft Spot's Tiny Banner Dies to cut it out and added another tiny button.

I hope you will all play along and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created! Have a great day!
