Today’s Ways to Use It Challenge (WT628) is a tribute to National Puppy Day. While I don’t have a dog in real life, I do have a cute one on my card & he’s learned to put mail in the mailbox. What a champ!  And on the subject of dogs…the last dog I had was a blonde cocker spaniel named Tigger. We also had a conure (parrot) we named Odie. We called him Odie (after the cartoon dog on Garfield) because he thought he was a dog. He learned to bark from Tigger, but his bark sounded kind of far away. We realized he was imitating the dog when he was barking from the back yard. The parrot we have now is named Linus (after the character on Charlie Brown). He also barks because he learned it from Odie. Guess I also have a thing for cartoon characters, lol.   Here’s a pic of Odie on his favorite cup.

In memory of Odie 1985-2012


To make my mail dog card, I put together 3 different images..the dog w/ the fence is one. Originally he had a big stick in his mouth but I drew a letter to replace the stick. The lovebirds on the branch is another & the third is the mailbox, which originally had a big smiling daisy w/ a letter in its leaf. So there was some masking going on here. After I colored everything, I used a self made cloud stencil & sponged in the sky, & stamped a lines bg, tone on tone on the blue frame.

Here are the Copics I used.

What a fun couple of challenges on Splitcoast today! When I read the Technique Challenge (TLC630), I just KNEW I had some baby wipe bgs already made. Sheesh..I made them so long ago it’s a good thing bgs don’t have expiration dates! And as luck would have it, they were good Easter colors. Can I get a high five, y’all!?

So, for the CAS (CAS421), Bunny Hop,  I also happen to have a cute little bunny that hadn’t seen ink yet. Colored him then cut around his little bunny body to insert the die cut window. Added the greeting & some fussy cut Easter eggs I stamped on more of the wipey bg & we’re done.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it, the Copics I used.

…went to a Party! In fact, all 5 little piggies went to the party! Today’s Clean & Simple (CAS420) Challenge asks up to use some string or an image w/ a string. Every little piggy has a balloon w/ a string, so there you go.

My easy card is pretty self explanatory 🙂 Party Hat Pig was die cut w/ an oval & all his little piggy friends were stamped, masking as I went & their balloons are from a little balloon punch. The balloons were punched out of white & I colored them & drew the little strings w/ a fine black pen. I will mention a little trick I use when I need more than one mask of an image. Stamp the image several (or more) times onto your thin paper. Hold them up to the light to line them up, then cut them out all at once. When they’re stacked like this, you only have to cut one to have multiple masks. I also save them in a baggy for future use.

Here are the Copics I used. Whoda thunk it took so many?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
