Welcome friends, followers and TSG MOABH-hoppers! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all Mothers everywhere - even if all your children have paws like mine! ;) Bet you didn't know that TSG's MOABH was the main impetus causing me to create my own blog did you? So, I am very exciting to be participating again this year. I was assigned two sets this year; therefore, I have two cards for your viewing pleasure in this post, the first of which is HSH - Hanukkah Additions - I was SO excited when Jessica created a Hanukkah set (there are not a plethora of them out there) and it coordinated with Home Sweet Home as well - bonus! I used the Stamp School's Geometry Class Sketch from 5-9-12 to create this card:
(Holiday card count... 7? Man! That is just dismal! It should be six times that by this time of year... I better get cracking!) I was really dissatisfied with all of my white inks, I always used to have to emboss to get that crisp white look on colored cardstock, and someone suggested I try Colorbox's Frost White. So I picked one up from A.C. Moore with a coupon and tried it here - I think it looks pretty good! Note - this is not a fast drying ink, I heat set it so it would not smudge. What do you think? In addition to MOABH & the Stamp School sketch challenge, this card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- The Craft Room Challenge - Emboss It (I used the Swiss Dots CB folder for the background), and
- One Stop Craft Challenge - Monochrome.
Aren't these puppies sweet?!! This card may end up being a birthday card or a Father's Day card from Ty to his Pop, so I left the sentiment on the front of the card 'Woof!' offset by tiny bone resins and figured on the inside I could right either "that means Happy Birthday in dog" or "that means Happy Father's Day in dog" depending on which occasion I went with. The Green Galore background is embossed with the Houndstooth (fitting for a canine card, no? 'hounds-tooth' get it? Hee hee hee!) CB EF, the colorful paw print paper is from a DCWV dog scrapbook stack and I created a strip of DP using the 4 different paw print designs included in the set as well and put some pretty bone ribbon over it. Then I added a strip of these adorable paw print satin cut outs by May Arts to complete the sketch. I can never make enough dog cards...
This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
- Craft Your Days Away Challenge 45 - All Creatures Great and Small,
- Allsorts Challenge - Week 154 - Card for a Man or Boy,
- Pixie Dust Studio Challenge 126 - For the Boys,
- Totally Papercrafts Challenge 116 - No Pesky Girls Allowed, and
- The Craft Room Challenge - Emboss It.
Thank you so much for stopping by and seeing my creations. Don't forget to leave some love and comment on as many blogs along the MOABH as you can - you never know which the mystery blog will be for the BIG BIG prize - FREE TSG STAMPS FOR SIX MONTHS!!! WOWIE!!! GOOD LUCK and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!

Holy moly! You were assigned TWO sets!? Well double-yay for us! I love the first card - especially the embossed dots and the colors...but the second one totally tugs at my heart strings...you know why. :)
Lovely Hannukah card! Super adorable puppy card!
Great cards Meredith! love that puppy dog!
Meredith your cards are both gorgeous! Love the layouts of both!
Very cute Hannukah cards, I am always looking for new ideas. Your other cardis also sweet.
Hey, Meredith, great cards! I hear ya on the holiday cards. . .my count is like 3. . .not good :(
Great job on both cards Meredith. I thought the first was embossed (which I hate doing!!) so I may have to try that ink out. Being a new puppy owner, I have to say I love the second card more!! Snickers agrees with me. Really cute.
great cards - your dog one is super cute!
These are both wonderful. I'm really loving that first card. Love the white ink you used, thanks for the tip on that one. I also have a hard time with achieving the kind of crisp look I want with white inks and don't always want to go through the trouble of embossing.
How wonderful to see a different tradition honoured such a powerful image. I've often thought our hobby was short of images for different faiths. Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
A duo of purely adorable cards. I love them both. :)
Beautiful holiday card and such a cute puppy card!
Both gorgeous cards :) :) :)
Dogs always have a sweet spot in my heart and this one is no exception. Love the image and all the pooch details making it into a beautiful card. Thanks for joining us at Totally Papercrafts this week. Linda
