Cozy Puppy. Phrase Inside: "How You Doin'?"

Had too much fun with this one. The armchair and puppy are from Eat Cake Graphics. The paper for the armchair is Stampin Up (page 172 & 173) Designer Series paper in 'Blue Bayou.' The legs on the chair are water-coloured with chocolate chip ink. The craft ink is the best for this since the classic ink is too translucent to hide the white dots on the paper. The puppy is water-coloured with a mix of 'Chocolate Chip' & 'Apricot Appeal' classic ink.

The wall paper is paper by Basic Grey (Pre-169 Phlordilee aged & confused Phresh & Phunky). I'm super excited about the floor, because it's printed on whisper white cardstock from this amazing reference site under "wood" from Mayang's free textures & backgrounds website.

There are pictures of every surface you could need for cards or collages and you can download up to 20 per day. I was originally looking for wallpaper for my collage website (still haven't figured out how to do that, but I love the page for printing funky textures.

I think next time I make this card I'll add baseboard; what do you think? :0) Mel

Thanks Tracy!

I was hoping that the bubbles photo wasn't too goofy or risque. :0)

The chair is SO easy: just stamped it on the patterned paper and cut it out. (Stole the idea from my friend Kim) :0) This chair stamp was cheap (unmounted only $5.25.)

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments! :0) Mel
