Paper Sundaes Challenge 12

I haven't won any Wags n' Whiskers stamps, so I am entering into the Paper Sundaes' challenge to try to get some free Wags n' Whiskers stamps. I just adore those new released stamps, they are so darn cute. I will continue to play until I win some new released Wags n' Whiskers stamp otherwise I will just have to shell out some money to get them.

This week's challenge for Paper Sundaes is a sketch from Christine. Here is my card. I used Hambo stamps for the image and the sentiment. I had it for awhile now and haven't have time to play with it. This stamp and the saying is just hilarious. I finally inked it up couple of days ago. Stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury 120lbs white cardstock. I love Gina K's PL cs, they are just fabuluous especially this 120lbs, super thick, no leaks through the back and it is very smooth to color with Copics. Did I tell you I am addicted to those Copic markers? I need to buy more colors, but will wait until have a a little more spending more. The designer paper is from DCWV - Boy Nursery and Scenic Route.
I am giving this to my office manager's husband. He helps us with all the repairs at the clinic, so I thought this card is just so fitting. I didn't stamp inside the card because I need to ask my office manager if she wants me to stamp a birthday saying inside. Here is the inside of the card.
Onto more personal news, I took my cat, Lay into the vet for a dental cleaning. This is first teeth cleaning after 13 yrs. We should have done it earlier, but after his brother's experience with the dental cleaning about 5 yrs ago, it scared us, because that vet gave him too much anesthesia and almost killed him. This vet we have been using for 2 yrs now and the veteranarians are great, very knowledgeable especially since Lay is diabetic. Lay also got 2 extractions and off course tons of tartar removed and hopefully his breath will smell better. Lay is recovering really well.

ink: Memento Tuxedo black, Stazon Gray, Copic markers
paper: Gina K PL white, PTI chocolate, DCWV dp and green cs, AMUSE wood dp, demin blue - unknown

Happy Easter & Challenges

Happy Easter! Just came back from dim sum. I love all this month's new Wags n' Whiskers stamps (sports related). They are so darn cute. I am keeping my fingers cross that I get to win some of these stamps. I made this card for this week's Wags n' Whiskers Challenge 17 - Sketch by Tina and for the Stamp Something - Pink Somethings Challenge. I love pink especially with the pink and brown combo. This stamp is from Wags n' Whiskers. This stamps was what actually attracted me into Wags n' Whiskers and Stamps and Create store. I colored the image using Tombow markers. They are poorly nelegected after I purchase Copics, even some of the markers are out of ink. I stamped the image on watercolor paper, embossed, then watercolor using the Tombow markers and Aqua brush.

I made this card for Chris, Hope for Cats for all her rescue work. Actually, I wanted the sentiment to be "Cat Diva", but there was a dog on there, so I just changed to a sentiment called, "You're the cat's meow" from Inky Antics. The inside sentiment is a Gina K stamp. I focked the stamped paws.
Thanks for stopping by.
