A puppy is love

Hello, hello my stamping friends!

Today there is a new clothes coloring tutorial by the amazing miss Elaine over on the CMC blog that you won't want to miss! We all love images with fancy clothes... ruffles, pleats and gathering but sometimes they can be a bit intimidating to do. Elaine really takes the mystery out of were to start with those fancy clothes and after just a bit of practice your stamps will be rockin' some pretty chic looking outfits too!

And not only is there a new tut up but there is also a new challenge to go along with it. Susana from SCACD generously sent each of the CMC gals one of there exclusive stamps to showcase the challenge and she is also putting up two huge prizes that you can see over on the CMC blog! To play along you can use any stamp you like for the challenge and you have until October 20th to get your entry in. We would love to see you join the fun! :)

My card today features the sweet "A Puppy is Love" Hearts and Hugs summer collection stamp by Victoria Case. Surprise, surprise... I colored the puppies up to look like my little luv bug Yorkie. What can I say, when it comes to coloring up pups I'm a one trick pony. LOL!
And since I had the whole Yorkie thing going on I ended up coloring this gal with my own brown hair and blue eyes and of course a fabulous orange shirt to finish it all off!

Well that's all I've got for today... thanks for dropping by. :)

A great self portait! We had a yorkie for 14 years. It just about broke our hearts when she passed away and there aren't many days that go by when we don't think about her.
