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.

A big congrats to DJ Rants, the newest Featured Stamper (FS528) on Splitcoast! We were on the ODBD team together for quite a while & I’ve been an admirer of her fab gallery for a long time. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I kept the birthday theme & most of the layout, but I used different images, different paper & left off the top frame.
To make my birthday card, I die cut 3 white panels then sponged each of them from the top left inward, letting it fade to white in the lower right. I stamped & die cut the big Happy on the largest layer so the section wouldn’t be missed when the other layers were added on top. The little birthday was stamped on the lower right of the top panel. I also die cut 2 more big Happy dies out of white to shadow the stamped version. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

You have through Sunday March 19 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on March 20 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Marble Feathers Bg! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

Isn’t this new Chick w/ Butterfly adorable? After coloring it, I die cut w/ a pierced oval. The greeting was stamped on a piece of the leftover white & after die cutting w/ a pierced square, I trimmed it down a bit. To stamp the greeting, I lined it up in my Misti & stamped it w/ black. Then I shifted the white piece slightly up & left & stamped it again w/ lulu lavender to give it the shading.

Two extra daisies were fussy cut & I made a little sheer bow to go on the side. The grape background was die cut w/ the new Swirl Cuts Bg die. It cuts all the swirls but leaves them intact. A really nice effect!

Here’s a look at the inside. I had a piece of lighter lavender w/ the lg egg shape already cut out, so I thought it would be perfect for the inside. The Flower Corner was stamped in grape & I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights. Below this are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
