CardMaker-Flower Soft Blog Hop!

I'm so VERY excited to welcome you to the CardMaker-Flower Soft blog hop!  The CardMaker blog team is joining forces with our Flower Soft team to bring you some animal-themed inspiration!

You should have arrived here from Glenda's.  If you're jumping into the middle, head to the CardMaker blog to start at the top!

I love kraft and black together and black ultrafine Flower Soft is one of my favorites, so my card for today's hop is a simple design with a cute canine from Gourmet Rubber Stamps' Playful Pals.  It's a no-frills, guy kind o' card that's quick and easy to put together.  The tiny polka dot is actually from a Christmas designer paper pad, but it's a great contrast for the black and white dog bone cookie cutter stenciled background that I sponged with white pigment ink and dotted with Copic opaque white.

From here, you're headed to my friend, Jennie's!  I can't wait to get home from my Wednesday morning Bible study to jump on the hop myself!  :)
