Sketch Me Dotty!!

I haven't done a challenge on Splitcoast Stampers for awhile, so I thought it was time to get a couple done in one card!!

This card is double duty - the Sketch Challenge and the Ways To Use It Challenge.

The stamp set I used is from My Favorite Things - Punny Farm. I chose the chickens today. I can't believe that this is the first time I have inked up those chickens!! I mean, I work in a hen house for goodness sakes! you think that would be the first thing I would reach for!!

The Ways to Use challenge today was to use dots!! Dots in your embellishments, make a dotted background, stamps that are dots!! anything that has to do with dots.

I love this challenge because I love I chose some polka dotted Offray ribbon and a polka dotted photo corner! Cute, don't you think??!

Marcie had left some patterned paper here, so I grabbed that and worked it into my card, so I am not sure what the make is....sorry about that....

I did some faux stitching around the edges of all the layers with my black ziggy does such a nice precise job. I coloured the hens with my copics and then sponged a bit of blue and brown for sky and the ground!

My poor Schnauzer Rosie has been soooooo sick! When she peed on my carpet, she was NOT sick.....that was on purpose!

But last night she ate half a belt. Yep. My son went to put on his leather belt this morning and the buckle was chewed right off and there was only about 12" of belt left. Oh man, was she sick, literally! Lots and all day! Little pieces of leather throw-up all over the place. ugh. sorry.....

But poor thing...... tell me - when do they grow out of the "I see it, I chew it, I eat it stage"!!? She won't be two years old until August.

We live on a farm and we have had dogs all my married life (28 years)and NEVER have they ever gotten into so much MISCHIEF!!
That crazy Rosie.......she does seem to be feeling a bit better tonight.....hopefully leather is not toooo poisonous!

Well, off to bed for me. I'm Zonked!!



  1. I love the dp on this card! It's so cute. I once had a yellow Lab, Autumn, who ate a TV remote control button. It came off the remote but we just kinda balanced it there. One day mom was pressing it and it stuck to her finger and as she raised her finger it popped off onto the floor and as we looked down for it Autumn was looking up as us chewing away and wagging her tail. I still laugh when I recall that! And that's one of the less yucky things she ate!

  2. Hi it's me again...forgot to invite you to my blog for a goodie!
