Top Dog Birthday!

Here is my card for this week's sketch.    I used my new Brother Scan and Cut 2 that I got for Christmas and cut out the images of the dogs from the My Favorite Things Top Dog set.   I don't have the dies from this set and could not wait to try out my Christmas/Birthday present.   My birthday is two weeks before Christmas.     I have been wanting a Scan and Cut for about two years and finally decided to take the plunge.    Mostly because my stamping orders have become more die driven because I hate to fussy cut.   I would rather spend the money on stamps and other fun things.    I will still order dies, I got this mostly to cut out my stamped images.  

It really works easy but the trick is to have a really dark black line. Otherwise it cannot see it well, however, I found it was really easy to use and can't wait to see what else I can do with it.   Any ways, back to the card, :-)!  

I love this Top Dog set from My Favorite Things.   I am a dog lover and a family full of dog lovers so any type of card with a dog works well with anyone in my family.     I used this weeks sketch from My Favorite Things and was going to make it into a Valentine's day card but decided to make it a birthday card.    (the birthday sentiment is on the inside - which I did not take pictures of :-(.

I just love the new Scalloped dies from MFT.   I love the stitched detail and the little scallops.   On the inside, I stamped the Sketched Chevron background and a birthday sentiment from MFT Birthday Wishes and Balloons.  

I am off this week for work so I am hoping to get a few more cards made, make some Christmas tags for next year (never seem to have enough time before and don't remember in the middle of the year).  I figured I would use some of the sets that I did not get to use this year as of yet.    Check back with me this week, I should have several posts to share.

I hope you have a great holiday week!    See you soon!
