Happy Weekend, y’all! Hope you’ve got something fun planned for the weekend – I think Mr. Finn is going to have a play date with his “sister” Scout. She’s two years old now – but from the same mom and dad as Finn. Her mom says she’s all ready to show Finn the ropes. 🙂
We’ve been taking the little man out to the arena in the evenings after we feed and playing ball with him. He loves racing after the tennis balls and pouncing on them! And when he gets tired and done with us, he races around us and leaps on the golf cart. We stop on the way back to the house and he gets a big drink of water from the horse trough – I’ll try to get a picture of that, it’s pretty cute!
It’s really amazing how quickly he’s assimilating into farm life!
Then he comes in and goes in his kennel. He’ll spend a little time trying to get the peanut butter out of the big stuffed bone (thank you, Amy Koenders!)…
My card for today is another one using the beautiful This Christmas DSP sheet music paper. I added some images and die cuts using the Santa’s Sleigh bundle, and this is what I got. Take a look-see:
The layout for my card comes from the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #249:
I started by double matting the sheet music paper from This Christmas DSP on Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black. Then I wrapped a length of Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and one of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim around the panel, securing them in the back with scotch tape.
I “made” an oval doily by taking a Silver Metallic Foil Doily and cutting it in half, then gluing it back together with some overlap – making it an oval. I knew the seam would be covered up by the tree.
The tree in question is from the Santa’s Sleigh stamp set – I heat embossed it in Silver on Very Vanilla and then cut it with the matching die in the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits. I used some Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to adhere the tree onto the newly oval-ized silver doily, and then popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits – I cut three of them from Rich Razzleberry and then adhered them in a stack with Liquid Glue. I used more little dots of the Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the card front.
The decoration on the right side is comprised of a length of Rich Razzleberry 3/8″ Ribbon from the Trio Pack in the Holiday Catalog – I doubled and stuck it under the other ribbon with a Glue Dot. Then I added a couple of Silver Foil boughs cut with a Pretty Pines Thinlits die with some Liquid Glue. The final touch is a little bow, tied with two lengths of Silver Metallic Thread and one of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine, added with a dab of Liquid Glue. And I nestled a Christmas Trinket Embellishment in with a Glue Dot.
On the inside, I stamped part of the sentiment from Santa’s Sleigh in Rich Razzleberry – since it’s a photopolymer stamp, it’s easy to ink just the first part of the sentiment! Then I added a tiny bow – also from Santa’s Sleigh – heat embossed in Silver. Across the bottom is a piece of This Christmas DSP, matted on Rich Razzleberry and Basic Black.
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another of the Santa’s Sleigh trees, heat embossed in Silver, on the front…
