Tail Wagging Day


Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it’s time to introduce our new challenge hostess which is Lois Bak.

Apparently today is Newspaper Carrier Day – so Lois has challenge us to use newsprint on our card.


Of course the day I decided to make my card, there wasn’t a newspaper around for me to use even though it was the day for the local paper to be delivered arghhhhhhhhhhh … not to be defeated I ended up looking in the recycling bin and found a advertising magazine which I figured was close enough.

The cute little puppy I used on my card is one of the new Peel Off Sticker sheets from Elizabeth Craft Designs … this one is called Puppies.

I love using the Peel Off Stickers with Double Sided Adhesive Paper and ECD Cool Diamond or Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. This is  what I did this time round but I adhered my newsprint to card and then covered it with the Double Sided Adhesive Paper, applied my Peel Off Sticker and then covered it with the Glitter and then colored with Copics. You can see the newsprint peeking through on the puppies head and tummy.


As you can see I have created a Pivot Card using the Katie Label Pivot Card set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I added two more Peel Off Sticker puppies to the left and right hand sides of my card and also added a few bone Peel Off Stickers along the bottom.


Here is a close up of the left hand side of my card.


And a close up of the right hand side of my card.


And finally the back of my card.

How delightful your cards always are, Frances! That "pawsome" is so cute for a play on words. Your little newsprint pups are pretty cute too.

I had to look closely to find the newsprint; but, once I found it, I was really impressed! Those pups are adorable!

Sweet puppies...stickers? They are darling! I love the colors on your wonderful card, Frances!

The dogs done on the newsprint look so effective - and so sweet. And, grins, I guess they might be newspaper carriers in their own right, too!
