Art Impressions - Doggy Kisses

Thursday already! Usually a good thing, but not when you're on annual leave and go back to work on Monday. Boo hiss! 
I couldn't resist this stamp set, Doggy Kisses from Art Impressions and was lucky to find it for a good price on eBay. I stamped the dog in black archival and coloured him in with zig clean colour pens and polychromos pencils before cutting him out. I stamped the sentiments and paw print from the set and die cut them using Simon Says Stamp Stiched Circles. I also used these to cut out the aperture on a piece of paper from my stash (?Craftwork Cards) which I'd trimmed to fit a 5x7 card. I glued the paper in place and added everything else on 1mm foam tape. This adds a little dimension, but will still post at the standard rate. 
Speaking of recovery, Willow had her final post op check up on Monday and was declared to be doing brilliantly. She's got her onsesie off and is now back outside, having gradually reacclimatised her during the week and providing a regular supply of warm snugglesafes. 
I've been in touch with a local rabbit rescue and on Wednesday she's off to meet a bunny who will hopefully become her new companion. Fingers crossed that they like each other.
Finally, I was trying to get a picture of Willow on my phone to send to a friend who lives "down south" and who loves bunnies even more than I do (yes, unbelievably that is actually possible. Just.). I think I woke her up judging by the stretch and yawn!


  1. Aaaw - what a cute card Cara and I love how you coloured the poor doggie. So perfect as a get well card. I'm glad to hear that Willow is doing well - she looks very comfortable in her little house and I hope the meeting goes well.
