DYSU #66 - Friendly Critters (and a Sneak Peek!)

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at DYSU!  This week, we would like to see some "Friendly Critters"!

Here are our fabulous sponsors for this week:
5 Gift Certificate

Winner’s choice of 7 digital images

Winner’s choice of 4 digital images

Here is what I came up with:
I used an ADORABLE new stamp set from Paper and Such called Patriot and Friends.  This is actualy a sneak peek as this set will not be released until Monday, April 9th!  Isn't this daschund super CUTE?  I just LOVE the fabulous, punny sentiments that come with this set.  The set has two different dog images as well as two different cat images and 5 sentiments to suit both and cover many different occasions...

I used papers from the MME Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks 6x6 Paper Pad, stitching the background papers together.  I used Spellbinders Labels 9 to frame the main image.  Because the next largest die would create too large of an outline for my liking, I traced around the outside of the die and cut it out by hand to create a smaller mat.  The sentiment was stamped with SU! Classic Ink in Basic Gray and tiny 2mm White Flatback Pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty were added to all of the flower centres on the background paper.  Finally, I added a few more flatback pearls in 3mm and 4mm, some twine from The Twinery in Flax, and a Vintage Button from Papertrey Ink in Spring Moss.

Anyway, I hope you'll head on over to DYSU to see what the rest of the DT cooked up!  

Don't forget to check back here on Monday for the Paper and Such Release Day Blog Hop and see how YOU can WIN the ENTIRE new release!

I look forward to seeing what you create!

Happy Stamping!
