Floral Gift Set and Hugs

I have a couple projects I'd like to share with you today.  First up is a sneak peek at a floral gift set of cards I created using JustRite's Beautiful Blossoms, Just Because Set, Happy Everything Tag, all of which are available from Dolce Stamps and Cards.  Dolce Stamps and Cards is featuring my gift set on their blog with all the details.  I'd appreciate your stopping over there to read about it and leave a comment.  If it's not up on the Dolce blog yet, it's because they are on Pacific time and I'm on Eastern, but it will be there eventually (smile)!

Next up is my weekly CCEE Stampers challenge card.  Joanne (aka JoJot) challenged us to make a card of encouragement.  Specifically, she'd challenged us to incorporate a hug of some kind in our design, if possible.  In case you didn't know, today is the last day of Hug Week.  I used this cute image from My Favorite Things (MFT).  I love how this sweet little boy is tucked right into his big ol' puppy's chest giving him a huge hug!  I also used MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch #29.

I colored the image with Copic markers.  I added stripes to the little fella's shirt with a fine tip black Marvy marker.  I used MFT's Die-namics Flower Trio (Rose Red cardstock) and Leaf Trio (Certainly Celery cardstock) and their Jumbo Scallop die (Soft Sky cardstock).  The sentiment actually reads Puppy Hugs, but, for my purposes, I wanted only the word "Hugs" on my card, so I inked it up with a black marker and punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch.

Please stop by the CCEE Stampers' blog to see what Joanne, Frances, Shirley, Tosha, and Cindy made.  Maybe you'd like to play along with us, too!
