Lily Pad Cards, The Greeting Farm and Lucy's Lovely Lines.....

....that is a recipe for inspiring creativity for sure! Add in an image with a puppy and I'm a happy girl!
 What is unique about this card, you might ask? I did absolutely no stamping on it...none, not at all!  That sweet image, called Nancy's Puppy (I had to have it, it was a no-brainer) is digital. The sentiment and the text background (quotes about dogs) were both created in Microsoft Publisher. The patterned paper is Out of Print by Basic Grey, the coloring was done with Copic markers, white stitch lines and dots on the collar are a White Jelly Roll pen by Sakura. Those little doggie bone buttons have been in my stash for probably 10 years. It was about time I used them and this was the project they were waiting for.
 Make sure to check out the Lily Pad Cards blog to see this month's sketch and for all the inspiration from the design team. Don't forget to join in on the Sketch Challenge fun. 

I'm sorry I've only been doing one post a week.  Maybe I'll get my act together around here and get back to posting more regularly. I'm itching to do some more challenges. Which ones are your favorites?
~ Psalm 28:7 ~
"The Lord is my strength and my shield;
my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
and with my song I will praise Him."

  2. That is so great, Nancy! I should probably get that one for myself too, right? lol My problem is I haven't had ink in my printer for over a year now! *gasp* I know!

  5. Hi Nanc! I love this card! What a darling image and could it be more perfectly named? The papers, colors and adorable buttons all work beautifully together!
