HAPPY MONDAY!!

Hi all! Boy, am I posting late today!! Having a new puppy around really throws off my schedule - LOL! Not to mention, I am soooo tired from getting up with him at night. I can't wait until he stops whining and missing the litter! So, anyway, on to my card for the day. This one is for the weekly mojo Monday challenge issued by my upline Kimberly (love ya, girl!). We had to make a card using any background stamp we have. Well, I chose my Stitched background stamp because I ADORE it!!! So, the base of the card is Regal Rose card stock. The next layer is Pretty in Pink and is stamped with my background stamp in Regal Rose Classic ink. I added faux stitching around the edges and used my corner rounder on both pieces of card stock. Then, I used some of my yummy dp called Rose Red Prints Designer Series and cut two strips, then punched them with my Ticket Corner Punch. I added three Regal Rose brads to one and two Jumbo Pewter Eyelets to the other. I threaded the eyelets with Regal Rose narrow grosgrain ribbon. The flower was fun to make. The base is punched out of the opposite side of the same dp using my Circle Scallop Punch. I then pierced each scallop with my paper piercer. Then, I used ALL of my SU! Circle Punches and punched them alternating between Regal Rose card stock and Pretty in Pink card stock. The center of my flower is a build-a-brad which I decorated with a punched out flower from the same dp using my 3/4 inch circle punch. I added some white dots around each circle layer using my white gel pen. The sentiment is from my Just Celebrate stamp set and is stamped in Regal Rose Classic ink on Pretty in Pink card stock, and punched out with my Small Oval Punch. I adhered it to a piece of Regal Rose card stock punched from my Large Oval Punch. Using my Regal Rose Stampin' Write marker, I dotted the outside of the oval, and added a small piece of Regal Rose narrow grosgrain ribbon. Lastly, I popped it up on dimensionals and voila, all done! I hope you all like it!!! See ya tomorrow - I am off to blog browse!

So cute! Love the pink, and those big eyelets! Did you try the ticking clock in bed with the pup? That might help a little. I hope you get more sleep tonight!

Such a Gorgeous card!!...love the colors!! You could try putting an old t-shirt in the kennel that you wear for a little bit or a little towel or blanket you rub on yourself and throw it in the kennel or wherever he is sleeping...makes him think you are holding him. Worked for my fur baby.
