Try It Out Tuesday #29 - A Gift for You!
Every now and then our furbabies need a little bit of attention. I tell you I could just eat my Hagrid up sometimes! Well, most of the time. He loves me unconditionally, only asks that I feed him and take him out to do his business and to spend time with him. He's the least demanding of my time and believe it or not, most days I get the biggest return on my investment from him!
For Try It Out Tuesday, our ever talented and creative Design Team Leader at SCACD, Suzanne Dean, challenged us over at Follow Your Heart, to make a gift and my neglected Hagrid came to mind. He's been so good with being shifted from room to room since Tiffany and Allie are here that I wanted to do something sweet for him. So I got him some doggie treats and reached for Rian from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! She's just way too cute for herself sitting there cuddling her little puppy! I could just eat her up!
Here's a copy of the whole set. I stamped Rian with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with copics. Then I cut her out using my top note die from SU, trimmed around the edges and cut out another top note out of the plaid paper and the band around the blueberry container is from the Pets Stack from DCWV. I highlighted her hearts on the cuff of her pants with some glaze and her flowers around her hoodie with my Spica Glitter Pen. She's all spritzed with my Shimmerz Spritz and I added a big flower from the Mulberry Street pack from Petaloo and put some buttons on the bottom corner laced with Scrapper's Floss. I was really pleased with how she came out and Hagrid loved his treats!
Here's a side view and below is a copy of this cutie's beautiful, sweet face!
And for an extra special treat, you've got to stop by Brani's blog. She's the highlighted stamper for SCACD and my gosh, what's she's done to Spunkette is breathtaking! Don't miss it!
If you haven't picked up these sweet stamps, you're really missing out! They are such fun to color up and go with any occasion. I am just taken by them and the more I work them up, the more ideas I get! Make sure you stop over at the store blog and see the other creations that my Designing Sisters have come up with. They're all absolutely fabulous! And take the time to make something for someone you've been neglecting. It doesn't have to be big or grand, just something to let them know you were thinking about them. It just makes you feel good!
