Just a Few Cards


Hello and happy Friday.  I managed to make a few things over the course of the week.  First up--it's starting to get close to Halloween, and that gave me a good excuse to pull out some older PTI dies and stamps (various Petite Places stamps and dies) to make this Halloween card.  I had planned to enter this card at a few different Halloween challenges, but I missed them all.  Oh well.  I am entering this card at PTI The Great Cover Up (Halloween card), Addicted to Stamps and More #415: Die Cuts, Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies, and WWC326: Occasions (Halloween).

I really could not wait to dive into some older MFT stamps that I just finally got around to buying, and ended up making two cards.  The first card is inspired by the sketch at MFT Sketch Challenge #562.  I really love this sentiment, and I think this will be a fun card to send out.

This next card took a bit of fiddling around, but I finally got it how I wanted it.  I was late to figure out that the stand alone dog face went with the dog that was shown only from the rear.  Duh...

I used the colors from the MFT Color Challenge #174 to make my card.  First I cut down the front panel of the card and covered it with die cut shiplap to make a fence.  Then I gave my dog a house to stand on to see what was on the other side of the fence...

Here we see the dog peeking over the fence to say hello.  Of course, this happens on a sunny day in San Diego.  I am thinking of all sorts of fun ways to use this dog, so stay tuned.

Thanks for Visiting


  1. All three cards are so well done, Joyce. The third one captured my heart though. Can't wait to see what else you do with the set!

  2. oh my goodness Joyce, 3 simply over the top (fence) cards! Love each one but those sweet puppies are the best!

  3. I love all of these cards! Beautiful sky blending for the little Halloween scene. I have no idea why I don't have that hydrant sentiment in some form, lol - and it's perfect here! And yay, I love your cutaway peeking over the fence card. Thanks for adding the Halloween scene to Addicted to Stamps and More!
