Heard You're Sick as a Dog

Happy Saturday! It's time for the weekly Diva Sketch Challenge. You probably arrived here from Alisa's blog. If at any time a link is missing, you can head over to the UDI blog to find the next person on the blog hop. This week's sketch is a pocket card.

This set is one I earned for free during Sale-a-bration, and I was so glad it did not retire at the end of June. I love this little dog!

Here is a list of supplies used:
Stamps: Wellness Wishes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Love Letter DSP
Ink: Black Staz-on
Accessories: Black 1 1/4" striped grosgrain, 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and 1 3/4" circle punches
Markers: Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede

Here you can see the inside of the pocket. Since I used the Love Letter DSP to make it, you see the pattern on the reverse side. Pretty cool, huh?

This is my first post since coming back from the Stampin' Up Convention. What a fabulous time I had! Over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing some of the cards I swapped and received while I was there.

Shortly before I left for convention, Stampin' Up had the following post.

"Wear your Simply Adorned charms and chains during convention for a chance to be one of three daily winners! To enter the contest, simply visit the Demonstrator Resource Center and find a Stampin' Up! employee wearing a button that says, "Show me your Simply Adorned." The employee will take a photo of your Simply Adorned creation and then place it on an inspiration board located behind the Product Café.

Three winners will be selected each day by a panel of judges in the following categories:

* Most creative
* Best use of new Stampin' Up! colors
* Overall cutest"

I had ordered the necklace and charms as soon as they were available, intending to make a grandmother necklace. That never happened, and the morning before I left for convention, I got up early and made this. I used the Tote-ally Tess set, stamping and coloring her little accessories and paper piecing Tess. The back side of the charms feature the Love Letter DSP.

I stopped at the booth on Thursday to have a photo taken, and when I went back on Friday morning, I saw that my necklace had been selected as most creative! I received this lovely stamp set as my prize.

Needless to say, I was on "Cloud Nine" the whole day.

Now, on to Becky's blog to see what she did with this week's sketch. (Hi, Becky! I can't wait to see you on vacation!)



  1. Great card! I love how you used the DSP for the card base - great way to use that double sided paper. Congrats on winning a prize for your necklace, it is fabulous!

  2. What a cheery card!!! Anyone who is under the weather would perk right up when they got this!

  3. I love the card and the necklace! I will have to make one for myself.
