Jellypark Friends Cuddly Wuddly Challenge

So it must be Friday if it is Jellypark day. And I am late getting this posted. Gasp! (I forgot last night; I was so busy finishing a book that everything else just flew out of my mind. Or slowly leaked. I am not sure which.)

I went to the eye doctor yesterday for my annual checkup. And I need such a slight change in prescription that I am not going to bother with new glasses this year. I figure I could use the money on more dies instead. And more ribbon and charms. And new paper collections. You know, the really important stuff in life.

Speaking of paper collections, I returned to one from last year for this card--Carta Bella Winter Fun. (Carta Bella has become one of my new favorites. That and Bo Bunny. Yes, yes, I will still use Basic Grey.) Anyway, I paired the DP with some Stampin' Up CS. And called it a card.

I guess I need to give you a bit more info. Like the name of my cutie-pie image, Walking the Dog, which I printed on MICBC. And colored with Copic and Twin Touch Brush markers:

Skin: E000, TTR131, TTR139, TTYR133
Dog/Hair: E40, E42, E43, E44
Hat: E08, R00, R56, R59, BG72, BG75
Scarf/Mittens/Boots: E08, R00, R56, R59
Coat: BG72, BG75
Leash: B000, B00

My layout came from the Friday Sketch Challenge #49, which I will enter with this card:

I used my Zutter for distressing the DP; I added some ribbon, which I colored with Copic ink and distressed with my heat gun; the dies I used are: Poppystamps Dachshund & Labrador, Whimsy Ticket & Corner, and MFT Mini Tabs Foursome. The corners were made with cardboard; I added two Tim Holtz Adage Tickets, a Maya Road Trinket Love Hanger, mitten and dog buttons, and some Washi tape. My ticket sentiment is from the Whimsy Friendship Ticket sentiment set. And now I can call it a card. You can call it whatever.

Do visit our challenge and check out the darling cards by my talented teamies! And while you're there, be sure to see the wonderful creations that my other teamies made using the two new release images--which are adorable, btw! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We are off to a BBQ party tomorrow and a Diamondbacks game on Sunday. Guess I'd best get my card for Monday done today, huh? Duh. Later, Peeps...


  1. your card is just so much fun, Penny! I love the shade of blue you used. that ribbon looks luscious! and I must say that you have tempted me to track down the labrador die. it is a must have since that is the only kind of dog we've owned for over 20 years! grins!

    your card is as sweet as YOU! enjoy your weekend! :)

  2. Penny, this is adorable. I love the dogs on your card and love the darling image, the fun papers, the great dies you used and your beautiful coloring. I think your decision for the new glasses is just what I would do to, after all our money has to be used for the most important things.

  3. fun fun fun! love the texture on your coloring

  4. Such a gorgeous card Penny. I love the cute image, beautiful colouring and wonderful embellishments. I especially love the buttons and die cut dogs.
    I hope you have a good weekend
    hugs Sue xx

  5. All the fun things to look at! Wonderful die cuts the dogs are all adorable, great layers of fun papers, amazing bow and your extra touches.
    Hugs, Pat :^)

  6. Fabulous fiesta of festive fun!! Love how you put everything plus more on your cards and get them to look just right - great colours on this one too :)
    As long as you can see to craft and read then why worry about new glasses????

  7. Gorgeous design, Penny. I love your embellishments and your coloring is terrific. Where did you get that little hanger? Too cute. :)

  8. Adorable Penny!! Love the layout and everthing you added.
    If I try to do that, my cards looks terrible but you always have the right things on the right place.

  9. Oh my, this is precious, Penny! Adorable coordinating papers and elements. I have been absent from JP challenges for awhile. I need to play along!

  10. Penny, this is adorable. I can't believe you would trade your eyeglasses for dies....well I guess I can, cause I have done the same thing sine I primarily wear my contacts. Another precious card with all of your wonderful details. Enjoy your weekend.

  11. Love this little girl. You've made her so cute, and I just want to hug that little puppy.
    Scarey thing, I had to grab a sweater when I looked at it. Those warm clothes are just a memory.

  12. Lovely card, the little girl is cute and love all the embellishments. Thanks for joining in with us at Friday Sketch Challenge.

    I, on the other hand, have a completely different story. Failing vision in my left eye, not due to my glaucoma. So I need THREE new pairs of glasses (got one already). That will cost me over 1K. Gargh.

    But I will continue to spend $ on stamps and inks and paints and dies and paper, because I have no restraint. So there... Even if I won't be able to see 'em.

    Anyways, the card is adorable. I especially love the dachsund die cut. buttons, hangar, and of course the beautifully colored image!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate the kind comments more than I can say! :^)
