Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! My dh is on his way home, been a long week alone with the kiddo! Glad I'm finally able to get a post up, seems blogger worked all all the issues, so all is good again!

Friday is Phindy's Challenge day. Today Anne gave us the challenge of using one image to create two cards. Fun challenge, since I know so many of us tend to use an image once then move on to the next one. Now for me this will be the third time I used this little guy, Nap Time, from Phindy's Place! 

For my first card I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #101, and turned it sideways. I tried some darker skin tones on this little cutie and made the dog a yellow lab.


 For my second card I made a little rag quilt (see the roughed up edges, lol) for him to lay on, and went with lighter skin tones and a chocolate lab.

Hope you will join the fun this week and play along with us. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you will be entered into the drawing twice and we really love to see them! Stop by the blog and check out all the DT samples, great stuff this week as always!

Card Recipe:
Ink: Pritner
Paper: PTI, SU, Basic Gray, Colorbok
Embellishments: copics, nesties, PTI buttons, MM brads, Tim Holtz ticket, distresser, cuttlebug embossing folder, sewing machine, dimensionals, twine, SU ribbon, EK Success border punch

Kathy your cards are lovely with this sweet image of the child and dog. Oh how I've seen that "scene" before. I love your take on the SSW sketch - all your special adds to that and the flip of the sketch are terrific. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
