Dogs & Cats

Hello friends and followers!  Today I have two cards for your viewing pleasure, the first is based on Sketch Challenge 88 from Skipping Stones Design (they are having free shipping this week BTW):
Kinda tricky right?  I turned those slivers of circles into puppy paws to create the following card using SSD's 'Dogs Vol. 1' set that I LOOOOVE:
(Man I can't wait until I have enough space cleared to set my photo cube up!)  The 'paws' were created from sections of oval punches with tiny 1/4" punches circles for the toes; the paper is from DCVW's 'Pet Stack' mat stack.  Since I used a dog in this card it also fulfills the requirements of Shopping Our Stash's Weekly Challenge 13 - to use a dog or a digi or denim, I of course went with dog.  

My second card was based on Sketch TESC143 by Taylored Expressions:
I used "Frightful Night' stamp set from Taylored Expressions and the ingredients from a past card kit to create this card based on the sketch:
All the supplies, including the brads, patterned paper and ribbon, were included with the kit - pretty convenient huh?  ;)  This there are polke dots on the patterned paper and on the ribbon as well this card satisfies the Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge 14.  

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my creations, I hope you like them and I hope you have a fabulous day!
