A {Mod, Mod Poochie} Sketch For You To Try

Hola!! Here it is--Saturday and time for another installment of Jen's A Sketch for You To Try! It's also my nephew, Edison's FIRST birthday, so you can only guess who this card is for! I really got off the beaten path on this one (for me-I rarely do boyish cards--I have 3 girls!!), but I dearly LOVE it!! I've had my Cat's Pajamas Clearly Swanky Mod, Mod World set ever since I almost got Alma and I lost and late for her shuttle ride to the airport back in April (Arlington Stamp Day weekend)--those were the days. These poor stamps have been sadly neglected since then, as I have felt guilt this whole time for taking a wrong turn on the freeway and could not bear to look at them and be reminded of the horrors!! So just like the lady who got stuck to her toilet and decided it was finally time to come out of the bathroom, I, too have decided it was finally time to use poor little Poochie and I am so much better now that I did. Little did I know, my suffering could have ended so much sooner with the simple use of this cute stamp set that I had this whole time! So if you're feeling a little down, get out the most unused (or never inked) stamp set that you do LOVE and give yourself a little "therapy session". It works wonders! All kidding aside, this was a SUPER fun card to make, and I even used my Cricut for the little stop sign! Jen's sketch for this week is fairly easy and uncomplicated. I just chose a larger image for the lower panel, but you could do anything with it! I would love to maintain my level of newfound guiltlessness by looking at what you come up with, so be sure and use keyword SFYTT and upload to your gallery over on Splitcoast. Before you do so, though, zoom on over to the swanky blogs of Amy, Carole and Shannan for some more guiltfree stamping samples!!

Also, the next SNEAK PEEK for Storage Units Ink and More is here! Blurf on over to Kimberly Gajewski's blog to see what she has created. She is having a giveaway of her debut set, so you don't want to miss commenting over there, too!!!

TIP: Use brads, buttons, or eyelets to add a little embellishment to anything with wheels.

  1. I agree -- it's impossible to feel bad and use TCP stamps at the same time! Love your cute card and Edison (great name!!) will, too! Have a great day, Sus!

  2. This is just super cute Susan!! I love it!!

  3. Darling card Susan! Love the addition of the stop sign! Too cute! :D

  4. I love this, Susan! I don't know where to start! The image is super cute, the bright colors are so fun. Love the stop sign, the dry embossing, sponging ... see? I love it all!!

  5. What? We got lost? I didn't even know! Hee! Hee! I was just thankful to you for getting me back to the Hotel.

    What a great card. The stamps are saying "Thank you for the ink. We were getting thirsty!"

  6. Hi Susie!

    I was here looking at this cutie patootie creation this morning and got interrupted by a cute little 9mo. old named George, but I'm baaack to comment! This is one cool pooch! Love the colors and your pooch!

  7. Oh...look at Poochie...buzzing around the Dallas Ft Worth freeway, trying his best to avoid Susan's taxi service. Look at his darting eyes and white knuckles. I don't blame him, I hate driving in Dallas! But nevertheless, he's pretty darn cute!
