Puppy Love

Happy Holly-Day Friday!!! 

Whoo Hoo, I am off this weekend!!!  I get extra happy and cheery when I work a weekend and then get the next one off, lol. 

Today is my day to show case a card on the Loves Rubberstamps Inspirational Blog.  I am using Best Friends Luka by La La Land.  We were talking about this at work today.  Why we love these Marci and Luka images.  For me, they are cute and so rewarding to color.  First off, there is a colored image on the front color of the package.  They kind of give you some ideas, like where to put the creases or how you could shade.  I don't always follow these but they are useful when I'm trying to decide.  And then there are the spaces.  Not too big but not so small I can't tell where the end of my Copic Marker is, lol.  I just love them.  The Luka reminds me of my sons.

I also used the new La La Land Heart Border Die and the Heart Banner die.  These will be in the store soon, along with some other fabulous La La Land Dies.  So keep on the look out in the New Items section.   The paper is Simple Stories, Take a Hike 6X6 pad.  I used Memento black ink to stamp up my image.  The tops of the banner I used Card Candi Coffee Bean with the Candi Fix adhesive.  I also glued it all down with the best glue ever! 

Although I did not use a button on this, our current Challenge is to use a button, you can read all about it here.

I missed last weeks sketch challenge over at the MFT's Forum and so I thought I would play along and be better late than never, lol.   I also am playing along with the La La Land Blog Challenge - No flowers. 

I hope everyone has an exciting weekend!!!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments!!!
