Woof and Miaw.....

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: I've often been asked if I'm a cat lover or a dog lover and I always answer BOTH!!  My hubby and I grew up in a home that always had cats and dogs, plus birds, hamsters, and fish so there was no surprise that this challenge from SHOPPING OUR STASH was right up my alley.
Here is the card I created for your inspiration.

I don't know about you but, I simply love the Kaztelkraft critters, I have several sets of this totally funny and fabulous animals whos facial expressions are simply priceless.
I used two sets of stamps here, the grumpy kitty is from the set called Russian Cats and the smiling doggies from The Dogs set.
Stamped the images with Stazon black ink and colored them with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils, the sentiment was painstakingly stamped with this super old alphabet set, it was a bit tricky to line up the word "Cheese", so thank goodness for the MISTI.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Sassy Succulents" and the little chickies from Tiddly Inks and it's called For the Birds
So I hope you go and dig out your kitty and doggie stamps and come to play with us in the gallery.
Don't forget to visit my teammates' blogs to check out their fabulous creations and leave some comment love.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

I do love these critters! They are colored perfectly, and the bold yellow card looks great and adds to the fun cheery nature of the card.

So cute and funny! You blended those sets together so perfectly! And isn't this typical of dog personalities vs cat personalities!? My husband and I were just talking this morning about pets, pet hair (he cleans carpets and pet-owners are very crucial to his business, LOL!), and why we don't have any!! I will enjoy my pets through your card and my family members who do have them! Have a blessed day, my friend!

I grew up with cats and dogs and many years on a farm, so maybe that explains why I love all critters, too. These cats and dogs are fantastic and so cute how you put them together! Perfect masking and coloring, and the ideal sentiment inside, plus the "say cheese"... you did an amazing job lining up those letters!

Such a fun card! You've colored these so fabulously, and great job lining up the alpha stamps! Even with a MISTI, I still can't line alpha stamps up, so I just embrace the wonkiness! LOL!
