Being Brave Here.....

Well, I've been brave as of late! I've tried out for another couple of design teams! One in particular is for the "Whimsy Stamps Design Team"! I'm nervous as I am pretty hard on myself, my own worst critic you could say! What the heck, you only live once! Not to mention you usually wind up pulling out ALL the stops when you do, and get a great card for your stash! Without further ado, here's my entry;



I was blessed with this doggy image from a kind lady from "Tavias Charms" so I'm not sure what the company is, the paper is more from my mega stash, the big eyelets are from SU as is the twine, flowers are Prima's and the actual house is from Michael's craft store! I actually hand wrote the "doghouse again" comment - you couldnt' tell could you?! LOL! I also used my nestabilities for the scalloped shapes too! I LOVE my nestabilities!! I have more coming in this week - caved on some more despite trying to save up for a big event coming soon!

I am sure we all know a guy or two we could send this rascal to eh?! Funny thing is though, in my's probably me that would get it first! LOL!
