Birthday Hi with Loads of Love......

Sorry I haven't had a chance to Stamp much this week, VAT Returns sure do come around quick! For this card I tried to keep to the layout on Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch for Wednesday. I don't think I have used this Tailgating Wheel before and there was just enough room at the bottom to fit it in. After stamping and colouring in the doggies I ran the piece of whisper white through the Big Shot with Swiss Dots embossing folder. When I ran the snail adhesive on the back, the dots went flat where I had embossed it, so I ran my bone folder over all the dots to flatten them, Hey Ho!

I paper pieced the Loads of Love car on some Old Olive designer paper and used the jumbo eyelets for the wheels with a green SU rhinestone in each centre to finish.

I stamped the sentiment in Close to Cocoa and used the 1" circle punch to cut out then layered this on a 1 1/4" circle of Close to Cocoa and pricked around the edge using the pricking tool and mat.

I coloured the dogs in with SU Markers, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.

Talking of Dogs - SID was in the Dog House yesterday as he bite through a wall heater electric cable! Luckily it was switched off at the time! We were all chatting at the time. I had a lovely visit from one of my downlines called Maria pop over to her blog and see what she gets up to using Stampin' Up Products, her cards are so YUMMY!

Anyway Busy, Busy,
Thanks for looking,
