Feathered Thanks and a Pebbles Predicament

Hiya stampers! Today's card is for a Moxie Fab challenge to make a Clean and Graphic card. There is a big celebration all week at Moxie Fab in honor of a special issue magazine, Card Style. Check out the fun!


I used the new Pretty As A Peacock stamp set and colored the image with Copics. The large feather is stamped directly onto the white cardbase (Pure Luxury White) then colored. Then I added two narrow strips of paper scraps. I've been loving using my scraps this way and it was the perfect way to add a graphic element to my card. After adding the paper strips, I stamped the sentiment, then adhered the focal image with Pop Dots.

Now I have a few pictures of the predicament Pebbles found herself in the other day...

Pebbles' favorite thing to do, when I get something in the mail, is have me put her tennis ball in the empty box and close it up so she can get it out. She has a great time tearing into the box and retrieving her ball. A nice sturdy box can keep her busy for quite some time, allowing me some time to stamp.

On this occasion, she tore a whole into the box, stuck her head in and then lifted her head, causing the box to open, with her head still stuck inside.

She didn't really let it bother her and kept trying to drop the ball in front of me. What a goofball! By the time I could stop laughing and catch her, she managed to free herself on her own. Gotta love Cocker Spaniels, they know how to have fun. :)

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is full of fun!

Theresa - I love the card. We have peacocks where I work (on the grounds), so I've collected peacock related items, to include a couple of stamps as I find them. Love this one and haven't seen it.

thanks for sharing Pebbles' adventure - that was fun!
