RaggaMutts Folly

Hello People.  I have a quiet day to play so I started snooping on everyone's blog and found some fun challenges to enter.  CEC was having a challenge to make a funny card,   Well funny is right up my alley so I went into my files to find some digis I had not ever used before.  I found this funny, but darling image called RaggaMutts Play Ball from Digi Doodles.  When I checked their blog they were having a challenge for plain and simple cards.  So I got busy playing.

Tammy from Tammy's Spot had sent me some new paper to try awhile back.  I was saving it for something special and today I was in a special mood.  This paper is  Cryogen White Iridescent from the Paper Temptress.  Well I will just say I fell in love with it.  It is pretty and sparkly, but when you color with your Copics, the ink just goes on so smooth and stays on top of the paper so you can blend it perfectly.  I started coloring the image and stopped just to place an order for more!  I don't think I will ever go back to GP again.  I absolutely love love love it!

RaggaMutts is matted with some striped paper I got at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago and don't remember the company.  The tan is a beautiful piece from DCWV Linen Closet.  It is such wonderful quality too.  (I must be in a paper mood today because I am really enjoying crafting with  these two sheets of paper).  It is mounted on Very Vanilla SU cardstock (which is my favorite cardstock too, hee hee).  I used my scalloped rectangle Spellbinder to cut the tan frame, then used the popped out piece for the inside card sentiment.  Popped a couple of buttons and brads on it and I was finished.

The sentiment was stamped with a SU stamp from a Christmas set I bought a few years ago.  The inside sentiment was partially handwritten and partially stamped from a Christmas set that I believe may be Inkadoo Stamps, but I am not certain.  I bought a big set at AC Moore and didn't keep the box.

Hope you enjoy sharing my fun day of crafting and I hope to see some fun cards you have made.  So get busy, post something new and I'll stop by for a peek.
