What's up...

Hello crafty friends!

August 7th has snuck up on us already and that means we have a new challenge over on the 7 Kids Customers Create Facebook page. Not only that but we also have a new 7 Kids Exclusive Digital release that coincides with the theme of this challenge... DOG DAYS OF SUMMER. Sandy Le Doux has created four new digital stamps, Walter the Wolf Pup, Dozer the Pug, Baxter the Boxer and Parker the Puppy. For my card today I have printed out Dozer the Pug in grey scale because the no-line coloring technique allowed me to color in his big, beautiful eyes which added a fun expression to his sweet face. Part of that trick was also grabbing my handy dandy Sharpie extra fine white marker to add the whites of his eyes which makes it appear like Dozer is looking up into the sky. You will also notice that I returned to my card making roots and rather than color in a background I had fun using pre-made die cut pieces and fun Doodlebug papers to create a happy home for this little pup.     

Ok, so go grab your animal stamps and get creative with us! It's your turn to create something for our "DOG DAYS" themed challenge. As always there is a $20 gift certificate to the 7 Kids store to be won!
