Try It Out Tuesday - Catherine the Vet

It's been way too long since I've been visiting with you all! Sorry I've been gone, but my mom's been in the hospital, I've been working more at my part time job and I spent the weekend stamping at Stamp New England and meeting people I've admired and learned so much from on the web. I've been gone long enough though and I think Tuesday is a great day to rejoin the world of blogging.

Our Try It Tuesday Challenge passed down to us by our talented, ever fabulous leader, Suzanne Dean, for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD), was to create a card with a stamp from Anki's Sweethearts, illustrated by our very own Anki Bargman and sold exclusively through Susana, and use only two layers and two embellishments. Man, was this hard for me! I didn't realize how much I shimmerzed, stickled, flowered and glitzed up things until tonight. Well, Suzanne, I did the best I could!

I've loved Catherine the Vet ever since I laid eyes on her. She's just the kind of vet I'd love to have taking care of my Hagrid. I think the bandaide on the little puppy's behind is too cute! I love this adorable paper with doggie food from Bo Bunny that I've had in my stash. I've had it since I brought my Hagrid home. I gave the bottom of the card and the circle a bit of texture by using a cuttlebug folders and popped Catherine and her bag up with some dimensionals. I used some Scrapper's Floss in Tan as ribbon to hold the gold heart charm, just like my little Hagrid holds my heart.

Make sure you stop over to our Design Team blog, Follow Your Heart, to check out my other fellow Design Team buddie's creations. They're just fabulous!

I promise not to be gone so long from now. I've really missed spending time with you. I'll be back tomorrow to share some pictures from Stamp New England with you all. It was a great time!
