Operation Write Home Challenge - Sketch 192

It's Sunday!  That means a new card sketch challenge at Operation Write Home.  Here was today's sketch:

 
 
I had purchased "Birthday4Cookie" from Stephanie Barnard at a convention a couple of years ago.  Cookie bears a strong resemblance to my Bailey.  Since I was intimidated with cutting her out, Cookie had never been inked up.  Stephanie very recently introduced dies to match Bithday4Cookie and I was on it!  So I introduce you to my inaugural stamping of Cookie aka Bailey:
 



I'm so pleased with how this came out. I need to practice using my Copics - this was a pretty easy image to start with.  Boy do I need practice! The card base is made with my favorite Close To My Heart Colonial White Cardstock.  The decorative papers are all Anna Griffin.  The patterned papers are from her Fifi and Fido Collection.   And of course, the stamps are all from Birthday4Cookie by Stephanie Barnard for Stamps of Life.  What do you think?

  1. This is absolutely adorable! I love the fun and bright colors. I think you did a great job coloring the puppy. And the paper piecing looks just awesome on the present. Great job with this week's OWH sketch!

  4. Thank goodness for dies, huh. I'm not good at cutting at all, so I get very nervous doing that technique. Cookie is just adorable and you did a fabulous job showcasing him. Your colors are all so nice, bright and cheery. You should show us your Bailey, maybe she could be your Blog Dog.!!!!! I, for one, love to see Blog Dogs. Enjoy your week.
