Bonnie in the Window......

A few weeks ago I was in my local stamp store and saw this cool window die from Poppy Stamps.  I don't own a 'window' stamp - so I thought it would be a great purchase!  So, for my first card using it - I wanted to make a doggy looking out the window.  Here's the card:

This Skipping Stones dog stamp looks just like my neighbor's pup Bonnie. She comes up to play with Buddy and Nolie and they have a good time.  I thought it would be fun to send the card to Bonnie's mom.

It took some 'thinking' to get the card done because I wanted the background to be of the inside of the house.  So, I made some blinds and wall paper.  I stamped the window die cut with a wood grain stamp and embossed the 'house' with a PTI wood grain folder.

I cut a few Sizzix trees and grass (which - um.....yuk.....) - time for another purchase!!

So, I'm pretty pleased with the result.  Hope to have some more fun with this die cut in the near future.

Speaking of future...........I'm going on a short blog break!!  Be back soon :)

Thanks for your visit!

Love your latest buy... and the lay out is so very lovely. All that printing and embossing matches so well together as do the trees and the grass. Love the cute dog and the blinds are OMG so very real. Great card, honestly.
Bonnie's mum will be touched.

Hugs,
Monica
