Now onto my card: I've used "Waiting", one of the new Christmas release, available here.
As soon as I saw this stamp I knew it had to come home with me, I love it :). Both the background and the dog are paper pieced with just the branch and bone coloured in with my Copics. Papers are by Fancy Pants and the grosgrain ribbon is tied across the bottom. The panels of DP are zig-zag stitched to the background in a red thread. There's a little Glamour Dust on the tree branch and beside the ribbon, not too much as these papers are natural, not blingy. Oh, I have a confession about that second bone on the card: I edged the scalloped circle with a red pen - and the pen slipped - time for a quick rescue :). I cut an extra bone and put it on a foam pad, problem solved.

I hope my card inspires you to play along with this great sketch, don't forget, you've got to be in to win!


  1. Fun, fun, fun! Did I say fun? Incredible card, Anne. Love the colors which are perfect with the image.

  2. Hi thanks for leaving a comment on my blog...Stones fan. Great to see your blog. Love the card with dog waiting for the bone. Great backing paper too. You don't happen to prefer dogs to cats? Most crafters seem to be cat orientated. We have a mad Springer Spaniel.

  3. Gosh, I don't see my comment. Wonder what happened? Let me try again.

    Love your fun card Anne! Super colors and wonderful take on this week's sketch!

  4. Brilliant card Anne and well saved with the extra bone, that was quick thinking and worked perfectly.

  6. Anne - Love what you did with that little doggie! hmmmm brilliant idea to paper piece the dog! Your colors are so festive.
