¡Feliz Cumpleaños!



We're celebrating a co-worker's birthday today, and I realized at the last minute last night that I forgot to make a card for him. Yikes! I came upon this cute Chihuahua party dog stamp and thought he'd be something fun and different from the traditional masculine cards that I'm so terrible at making. I crack up over the expression on his face (the dog's face, that is...hee!).

I colored the images with Copic markers and then used my More Mustard marker to draw the lines on on his hat to make it look like a woven straw hat.

Stamps: Canvas bg, Party Hearty, and $1 chihuahua dog stamp
Cardstock: More Mustard, Taken with Teal, White
Ink: Tuxedo Memento Black, More Mustard
Accessories: MS zig zag border punch, More Mustard brad and marker, Copic markers

He is so cute Charlene!!! Love it!! I wish I had that stamp in my repertoire. My sister in law is nicknamed ChiWawa by my brother.(You have to know them to understand why.) It would be such fun to make a card with this for her.

Gorgeous coloring, colors and layout!!
