Sorry Please Forgive Me

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Anne Harmon our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is ...... 
Apparently today is Tongue Twister Day. Most languages have their own versions of tongue twisters. In sign language, they are called “finger Fumbles”. Use a tongue twister to inspire your card. 

When I was researching tongue twisters for this challenge, I found there were hundreds out there ... some similar in style. I was almost hard to decide which one to use for my inspiration on my card. But finally I decided about this tongue twister .... 
If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?

As luck would have it I have an old Darcie's stamp that is a dog chewing shoes which was perfect for this tongue twister and challenge. 

I pulled out one of my Sizzix Stand-Ups die sets which I haven't used for a couple of years.

For the paw print background I used a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, stamping the backing using white pigment ink and then over the top with Catherine Pooler Daydream ink.

For the base of the card I used Altenew's Classy Stripes Stencil and white pigment ink.

It took a while to decide what sentiment to use for this card .... in the end I thought it would be great for a "Sorry" card. I used a stamp and coordinating die set from Honey Bee Stamps for this.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

I love your fun card! Such a cute saying - which I've not heard - and as always so creative and interactive!
