Happy "Molly-days"

Welcome to the Studio!

I know the title of this post doesn't make much sense to most people, so let me explain...
Molly was my Scottie.  I was blessed to have her in my life for 15 years, and lots & lots of Christmases.  I even had a "Molly" tree bedecked with white twinkle lights, plaid ribbons, red & green glass ornaments, and a Scottie Angel on top.  That began on Molly's very first Christmas and I've always sang "Happy Molly-days" around the house during the Christmas season.

I'm wanting to get a jumpstart on my Christmas cards this year - I didn't send hardly any out last year...ugh!  I was poking around on the internet as I'm prone to do and found a digi stamp site called Delicious Doodles.  They have some awesome stamps.  There is something for everyone, whether you're looking for a Scottie, a vampire dude, fairies or flowers, they have it.  My other inspiration for this card came from Creatively Candace.  I totally LOVE her card!  I used papers from the same collection on my Scottie card.


I also used a sketch from Dawny P. at Pink Piggy Wiggy.  I modified it a bit so it could be a 5x7 instead of square and did a bit of rotating for my Scottie in a stocking.


And you can't forget the inside of the card...


I'm going to be entering this card in two challenges this week.  One is  for the Delicious Doodles, The Challenges.  I found their challenge site while shopping for digi stamps.  I just love their stuff.  The current challenge is a 1, 2, 3 recipe.  I used one (1) Delicious Doodles digi image; two (2) pattern papers, and three (3) diecut items, sentiment tag, doily oval, and border OR three sparkling red holly berries.  I know it's kind of a stretch with the berries being on the inside and all.  I'm just in it for the fun, but do love those blog badges and comments;)

The second challenge I'll be entering this card in is the Love To Create Challenge Blog.  Challenge #21 is Anything Goes.  They have new challenges every Monday.
