RRCB81~Not So Seriously Stampin UP

 Well, today I made this sweet little card using my newly purchased stampin up set called Not So Seriously.  It retired in 2012.  I am still amazed that it was only $1.75 at the consignment shop.  That's awesome.   I just love these little dogs.   I looked it up on pinterest and came across a card using a bone.. and thought that is a perfect idea especially for the sketch at: 
Now making a bone should be easy, right?  Well not for me, I had to resort to google. Then of course, it was to big so I had to flip the sketch on the side.  Oh yes folks, I tend to act first and think second.   Any ways I do believe it turned out swell.   I colored in the little pups and then fussy cut them out, along with the bone.  I know that sentiment on the inside is an older one too from stampin up, I just didn't look that one up for the year.  I'm going to send this out to my doctor who is retiring.  I hope he will like it.  So sad to see him go.  
I'm also including the morning 6am picture of the moon in my backyard, just over the black walnut tree.   The lights you see on the left are from the train yard.   Hubby was out walking the dog, so hence our yard light was on too. 

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  I hope you will take a moment and look around at my other cards, projects and pictures.  I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog and my facebook page  
Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping


  1. Ohh!! what a sweet and fun card for your doctor, I'm sure he is going to love it.
    I love it too, this cute pups are simply adorable and I admire your creativity flipping the sketch to accommodate your fab bone.
    Thank you for sharing your fun and beautiful card with us at RETRO RUBBER and also, the picture of your backyard illuminated by that gorgeous moon.
    Hope you come and play again soon.

  2. Love your card, PJ! That image is so adorable and your bone was the perfect touch. We are always happy to see your cards in our gallery and hope you will play with us again very soon.

  3. I think that using a bone for the horizontal element was genius, PJ. Very clever. It looks also as though you did some clever buying to pick up the stamp so cheaply. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  4. Anothr great buy! Love the bone with the dogs! I'm sure your Dr. will appreciate your efforts. Love the photo with the moon.

  6. This is awesome PJ, I love that you used a bone instead of a shape. I love it, that image is awesome too!!! Thanks for joining us this time at Retro Rubber. Claire DT

  7. Such a delightful card, PJ! I remember seeing that set but do not have it. Using the bone shaped layer was genius and worth your attention. Love the DSP and the card inside as well. Thanks so much for playing along with us on this sketch challenge.
