Barkley Says "Happy Birthday!"


Stamp Simply Challenge: Alter a Store Bought Card. I actually used a portion of a thank you card that I had received from my good friend Kathie--this cute little flocked dachshund image! Thank you Kathie!

Altering or recycling store bought cards can be fun! I just grabbed some funky Luxe Sugar Cookie dp that I had in my stash...covering a long chocolate chip base completely. So very easy!
I stamped the birthday sentiment from PaperTrey Ink (Birthday Basics) with Versafine Sepia ink onto PaperTrey Ink's heavy white cardstock. A Spellbinder Tag Trio die was used to cut the tag.
I used a bright pink Copic marker to dye some May Art Cream twine, then fashioned it into a little leash bow.
I'm eager to see what the other Stamp Simply DT members have come up with! Why don't you take a look as well!

If you plan on playing along with us, please link your creation back to Sharon's blog so that we may enjoy it!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENNIFER!!!
