Do I Stack Up?

I recently learned that Revco will break into a hearty howl at the words, "Whoot whoot" or "Peep boop boop". I think he is afraid that the robots are going to take over and enslave us all, so he's aiming to rally the dogs to stop the uprising. Maybe he knows something I don't. Hmm.

In the mean time, I have been working on some projects for the inaugural challenge at the Do You Stack Up blog. The theme this week is buttons, so you'll see a lot of them today. First project is this ATC Valentine I made using an image from Pricilla Styles. I love the old timey valentine look to this image, so I ran with that in designing the card. I'm rather pleased with it.

And this one counts double because I used a sponsor's digital stamp...this adorable birthday rat (mouse?) from Stretch-n-Bubbles. I'm a big fan of buttons so I went to town on these, picking out all kinds of neat ones from my stash. I actually had to go to my backstock and re-fill my button tin after making a few of these. Oh and check out that border punch from Fiskars. Itty bitty cupcakes! Aww!
Wish me luck! The Do I Stack Up blog has already been generous...check out the horse stamp set in the right sidebar here...I won it! Once it arrives, I'll make some neat equine themed projects to show them off. I had recently been thinking my collection is deficient in horses. If I wanted a horse image in the past, I basically had to amputate a unicorn horn or a carousel pole.

you have some fabby cute cards on your blog, and love your hound! thanks for stopping by and leaving me a lovely comment.

PS - I'm in the UK so it doesn't cost any extra to send a square card - our rates go on thickness as well as size/weight and can be a bit complicated! The main thing is to keep below 5mm in thickness, so no big embellishments this year!
