Teach A Dog New Tricks

Guess what I woke up to this morning??
Ugh, how can that be, it's April...and my poor, poor Spring flowers!!!
Before I "cry" I wanted to share with you my card that is at/on
the Classy Cards 'n Such blog today for our "die cuts" challenge.
This is a really easy challenge...and a great prize is being offered....
dang it, I wish I could enter...lol!!!

Hello, Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
I have a fun project to share with you I made for this weeks challenge
Speaking of challenges, why don't you join in, we would love to have you.
You can always see our list of weekly challenges listed to the right!!

Now onto today's project!!
Who said "You can't teach an old dog new tricks?"
Well, that's what I did....
I taught this dog just  how much fun it is to fly a kite...
and his little "fluffy" buddy is waiting for his turn!!

The card base is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square, the background is 5" x 5".
I cut a bit of whimsical polka dot grass using Impression Obsession die "grass"
The clouds were cut with Memory Box "Puffy Clouds "
The kite is a fun die also from Impression Obsession "Kite die cut set "...
it comes with with a smaller kite die as well as  few other cutting options.

I added some "flocking" for a bit of a fur look to the little white dog
The larger dog and the smaller dog  are from Impression Obsession "Dog Die Set" 
I sponged TH inks on for a bit of golden color.

Additional items used in the making of this card are:
Joy Foam Pads Small

OMG this is just such a cute card! LOVE this little spring time scene you've created! I always can come to you for inspiration! Well done my friend!

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, how fun is this!! The little doggie and kitty are so sweet!! I love that he's flying the kite!! What a happy, spring card!! Love!!

We had frost and temps in the low 30's but thankfully no snow. I think the frost is still going to kill all the flowers that are popping up. Boohoo :( But your spring card perked me right up!! Have a great day my friend :)
