Tail Wagger

It's the 10th of February, which is pretty exciting! This is the day that the Unidentifed Image Card Swap Group can post pictures of their cards. So you just might happen to see several cards featuring an adorable puppy.

The Unidentified Image group is an on-going swap group on SCS. There are nearly 30 members. Every other month, one of the members serves as hostess. As hostess, she chooses a stamp and sends images to every member of the group. We all make cards with the same image. It is great fun to see how others use the image.

This month Linda (ljhart on SCS) is the hostess and she sent us the Stampotique "Tail Wagger" images to use.

Here's my card:

 Linda loves butterflies, so I'm glad this image includes a butterfly; it reminds me of her!

Here's the inside of my card:

I have to admit, the first card I made is a bit different than the ones I sent to Linda. This is a 3 + 1 swap, but fortuately the guidelines specify that the hostess send 6 images to each participant, just in case there's an "OOPS!" or something.


my first card looks like this:

Then I discovered the image was placed a bit differently on the cardstock, which didn't allow the horizontal layout with my Nestability. So, being flexible, I just switched the card to vertical instead. LOL!

This is my 48th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Well, I just love both versions!! A blast of sunshine in a cold, wintery month! Love the papers (you have the BEST paper stash!) and how cute you colored the puppy! Love the one white eye patch! The DP on the inside is too dang cute. What a great set of cards!

Stop having a bone embellishment!!!! How cute is that?! The yellow and black is so sunny and fun. I like how you colored the dog's different spots.

Barb said...

I too noticed the bone embellishment first--too cute! I love both layouts and the patterned paper is the best! Love the bright colors and the ribbon over the ribbon is a perfect touch!

Beautiful card!! Jeanette, you ALWAYS have the best layouts. In fact, my card for this challenge is a CASE of one of your layouts!! I couldn't resist the awesomeness! And this is another FAB one. Love those yellows and your coloring is awesome! Thanks for the inspiration!
