Best Friends

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week. We've been having crazy weather and flooding this week--I have my fingers crossed that we won't have any more rain this month!

I'm guesting with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge again. :)


This week's challenge is "You've gotta have friends." The team is using stamps by Art Impressions, although you don't have to use AI stamps to play along. 

Here's my card:

Best Friends

I used the Art Impressions Cat and Dog Mini stamp set for my card. The set has heads and arms for a cat and a dog and stamps for their backsides. They're made for a window card, but instead, I made a ledge out of pp.

I colored and fussy cut the cat and dog and used some hearts and sentiments from the Pen Pals Die-Cuts (and yes, that pink heart is wonky). I layered some Pen Pal papers underneath.

Here's a close-up:

Want to see the inspiration for my scene?

This picture was taken 10 years ago, and while Marma (the cat) didn't like other animals, after five years together, she could peacefully co-exist with the dog. ;)
