Ooh, La, la aka Oops La, la

Pinspirational #6
This card is inspired by the somewhat new "Pinspirational" challenge.  Seeing this little pooch made me want to dig out my Teddy Bo image with the poodle.

My family had several poodles, they were very sweet dogs and my mother loved them dearly.  I couldn't get my mom out of my head while I was making the card so I made the card for her as if she were still here.  Even though she never dyed her dogs pink I think she would get a kick out the idea, who knows if she were around when my brother had his grooming shop she just might have let him dye her critters.

Usually I pay attention when I'm putting my card together but this time I did a big whoopsie.  The opening is on the left and the decorated side is upside down.  I'm wondering if my mother was reaching out from the beyond so that I wouldn't be able to give her card to anyone else...(eerie music playing in the background)

Here's the deets:
stamp - Teddy Bo "Walkies"
ink - hp printer
paper - Melissa Frances "Olivia" dp; Marcella by K "Trend Paper Kit" dp; Stampin' Up pink cs
miscellaneous - copics; bling; ribbon; twine; dog charm; MFT "photo corner" and "oval doily" die-namics; machine stitching

  1. Ha ha ha! It always sucks when you finish up a card THEN realize the opening is on the wrong side.

    I've done it before (& I'm sure I'll do it again.} Of course, I like to think it's kind of a funny, little joke when you give it to someone, especially when you get to watch them trying to open it.

    Fantastic card - All that delightful pink!
