Toy Dog

Hi!  I'm sneaking in with only a few hours to go on the current Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop.  I'm also linking up to CASology, where the theme is "Toy".  I chose to use a "toy dog" for my card :)



I actually made this coffee cup/dog combo last weekend, but couldn't get it looking good on a card.  I put it to one side and now I'm now to the last six hours of the Coffee Lovers' Challenge, I just had to make it work somehow!  I'm not in love with this card, but it'll do.

The wee dog, who looks a lot like our wee toy dog, was stamped, colored and die-cut.  The coffee cup is a MFT die and I sponged the edges to give some dimension.  I also stamped the "Merry Christmas" sentiment across the band using Soft Stone ink for a tone-on-tone look.


And that's pretty much it.  Thanks for visiting!

Such a sweet image! That little dog is the cutest thing ever! Your cup looks almost real; your sponging is super! Love the pretty and festive red patterned paper on the side and that how it compliments the little Santa hat. Really a sweet card. Bev

This is so adorable I can't imagine why you don't love it! The way you sponged the edges of the coffee cup really makes it look round and your coloring of the Dexter look-alike is spot-on! Well done, you!!
