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.

The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. 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!
