BLD Tuesday

Mornin' hens!  It's time for another By Lori Designs Tuesday post.  Whoopie!!  Now, believe it or not, this is an exact replica of my little GRANDDOG Lilly!!  Tee-hee!  I've included a photo of her so you can see the resemblence!

She's a TWIN right?  OMG, I do LOVE that little girl.  She's SO STINKIN sweet!  The DH and I love taking care of her and we spoil her rotten every time she comes to visit.  That's what grandparents are supposed to do right? Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Anyhoo, it was her birthday a few weeks ago so I HAD to make her a card!!  Pfffft!  Hellooo??  She's my baby!!  Gramma HAS to make her widdle girl a card...  *snort*

Ok, so I started by printing the image "Dog" from the Lollipop collection at ByLoriDesigns, on both the  Kraft colored CS and again on white CS.  I shaded the white image with a few highlights and then paper pieced it to the Kraft CS.  I cut the image panel out with my circle Nestabilities and then (with the die in place) added some distress ink around the edges.  I printed the sentiment directly on the DP and then stitched around all the edges.  To finish, I tied on some CUTE striped twill ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel, and then added a few brads at the top!  She LOVED it, she told me so..... REALLY!!  Tee-hee! Now, there's still a few days left in this month's That's Kraft Thursday challenge, so if you haven't entered my challenge yet, well HOP TO IT hens!! I'm just LOVIN' all these FABULOUS entries.  And don't forget, you can enter the same card in the Catered Crop challenge too!  This week's FEATURED ingredient is KRAFT paper!  So, make it a TWOFER challenge!  Woo-hoo!!  You hens ROCK at these challenges!!  Have a GREAT day!  {{{hen hugs}}}
