Debbie's Kit

My wonderful friend Debbie not only came up with this great swap idea, but she also provided today's kits. First up, how adorable is that little puppy? OMGoodness, I want o squeeze him. I colored my images in with SU markers. The balloon is cut out and raised with a dimensional. I also covered the balloon and the candle in Crystal Effects. I had a tough time trying to figure out where to place the sentiment until it accidentally fell on top of the puppy. So I just glued it right down, LOL. The inside of the card says ...so have your cake and eat it too! The Celery strip is stamped with the Canvas Background. It's mounted on a piece of Guava cardstock. I punched some holes along the top and bottom edges with my mat pack and paper piercer. Then added some faux stitching, to match the ribbon, with my white gel pen. For the dew drops, I just punched out a Guava circle and glued them on top of that with Crystal Effects. Debbie also sent us a bonus challenge and I couldn't pass it up. I LOVE this image and shame on you Debbie. I went and looked up the Rubber Romance collection and they have some adorable images. You are such an enabler!!!!! Now the tough part about this card, was trying not to eat the pattern paper. I'm serious, Debbie sprayed it with a cupcake scent and it smelled just like icing. That's dangerous!!! Ross caught me sniffing the card and made fun of me until he smelled it. His eyes got all wide and he goes, "That smells just like birthday cake". Just a quick disclaimer to the person I send this too, don't worry we did not lick the card!!! I colored my image in with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I added a photo corner punch and glued some Dew Drops on with Crystal Effects. Debbie, thank you so much for these wonderful kits. I had so much fun playing with them!!!
