This sweet Golden Retriever was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. I had fun using scraps to make the party hats and stars that match the colors in the stripes on the background paper and reflect the two sentiments, which are from the digi set.

Scottish Terriers always make me smile. They seem to have such unique personalities- reserved, almost haughty, with a little bounce to their step. I did a bit of research and several sites called them proud, extremely sensitive, and easily insulted. What an intriguing combination. For this jaunty little guy, I dressed him up with a scrap of tartan plaid that I snipped from the wrapping paper that I used a background on the card. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. The sentiments are both from the set.

I have more than a dozen old roller stamps from Stampin' Up [SU] that I never used until I found instructions on Pinterest for converting them into border stamps. It is so much easier to get a nice image when I can use them with my MISTI. Am slowly converting them over to border stamps. This is the latest one I've converted… and it’s the first time it's been used at all. I love the cute little bears, and the scene reminds me of a song that I used to teach pre-schoolers when I worked at a college nursery school. I colored the images with chalks plus Tombow watercolor markers for shading and small areas. I liked the way the little hearts on the bears clothing is reflected in the background paper. So, I stamped the sentiment [a retired SU stamp] onto vellum so that the little hearts can shine through. Am entering this card into a few challenges, including the Monday Simon Says challenge "Transport it" [one of the bears is transporting a beehive to the picnic. Although, I think that might be a dangerous job… especially without protective gear!] and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Travel/Vacation" [the bears look like they are at a family reunion. I come from a long line of family reunion goers… and always loved that the annual family reunion meant a few days of traveling and all the excitement that came with the trip… and especially the idea that we'd get to eat junk food from gas stations. I'm not sure why, but it always seemed that ice cream, corn dogs and bagged candy tastes best when eaten in a moving vehicle. Maybe it is because my five siblings were usually eyeing my treats so they seemed like real treasures ] and Double D's Pick a Pattern challenge [the stripes and hearts in the background go so perfectly with this image… with all the cute little hearts. I even stamped the sentiment on vellum to allow even more of the background pattern to show. So fun.]
