Tracy's Sketch Challenge #32

Hey there! I hope you're having a terrific week. Thank you to everyone who stopped by on their way around the Artful INKables blog hop yesterday - I truly appreciate your comments, and I think that a hop is a great way to showcase new releases!

Today I have a card that I made for Tracy's Sketch Challenge from last week. Tracy posts a new challenge every Thursday, and I try to play along as often as I can :) I pulled out my "Sick Poochie" and "Dogtor's Orders" stamps (from TCP, of course) and got to work.

Can you tell that this card was made around the same time as yesterday's card (hence the stitching)? LOL! I seem to go through phases with techniques like that :) The patterned paper is from the "Penny Lane" collection by My Mind's Eye. I have to say, I really like how the texture on Poochie's quilt turned out; he looks much more cozy in his bed now :)

We might be in for some major Spring snow (aka heavy and wet snow) between now and Saturday afternoon - some forecasts are saying as much as 2 or 3 feet for us here in Conifer - yikes! The kids are already hoping for a snow day on Friday, but we have to wait and see which direction the storm takes...

I just love the stitching around the cards you've done lately! One of my favorite things to do! So very pretty and clever to stitch the quilt on the bed!

Hope you avoid the snow!

Gorgeous card! I love the edging treatments and stitching. My jaw dropped when I saw your forecast. I have trouble picturing that much snow especially this time of year!

I love your stitching, Toni! Especially on the blanket!
