Snow blast and a doggy card

It's a Winter Wonderland here! We had 6"of snow just last night alone! Here is a pic of the walkway to my front door :-) Those little caps peaking out are my pathway lanterns -one had some protection from our Blue Spruce!!

I was asked to make a couple birthday cards using doggy images and used today's Featured Stamper challenge to get me started. This week is paulatracy (Paula), one of my fellow Elzybelles!! I was thrilled to see her honored today. She has coloring skills that are off the charts! I chose this card to case. You can see that I was a bit distracted with today's snow activities and strayed from the layout a bit, but the inspiration is still there -thanks Paula!

Unfortunately, I don't know the name of this doggy stamp, it is part of an unmounted set that my mom gave me, but it has a matching little kitty that I may have to ink up soon! I used Basic Grey's Urban Prairie DP and paired it with PTI Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist and Vintage Cream all framed with SU Blue Bayou.

Card Deets:

Stamps: Unknown Dog, Verve's Black tie birdies (sentiment)
Paper: PTI lemon tart, vintage cream, and aqua mist, SU Blue Bayou and Basic Grey Urban Prairie (Jacksonbelle Embellishments)
Accessories: Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, circle nesties, swiss dots CB folder, sponge, white gel pen, cream grosgrain ribbon, Coal Shimmerz, and yellow brads -all 3 from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts.


  1. The card is really cute. The snow is beautiful. I have been a little jealous of all the snow people have been getting. It has been really warm here and it doesn't seem much like Christmas. I guess the grass is always greener, right? :)

  2. What an adorable card!! :-) Still am in awe by all the snow! Stay warm!

  3. This card is absolutely adorable!
    We also had lots of snow - 13 inches! And now it is -22C! So cold!

  4. Yowza, what is all that white stuff in your yard??? ;)

    Love the puppy card, adorable!

    Stay wame GF!!

  5. Yikes, gf, that's a lotta snow!!! I bet your boys are lovin it!!! I love the card you made, too...soo cute, but then, I have never seen a Michelle design I didn't love!!! I hope you and your precious family have a wonderful Christmas!!! Thanks, also, for the beautiful Christmas will go on my wall of fame in the craft room!!
