PAWS I CARE!

PCP challenge Blinkie


Today is a SPECIAL DAY!!!!!!!

In addition to this being my take on THE SWEET STOP's newest sketch SSS48 (shown below), this is also what I like to call...

A CARD FOR A CAUSE!!

Beginning today and running until Saturday, March 27th, PaperCraftPlanet has hooked up with Whimsie Doodles to have a 'PAWS I CARE CHALLENGE"!  All you have to do is make a card inspired by the 'sk032010' sketch below using any animal image!  If you don't have any animal images, you could consider purchasing a new set that Melyssa Connolly, the designer/owner of WhimsieDoodles.com, designed for this special event! 


This adorable stamp set, called PAWS I CARE, features some cutie patootie dogs and cats and hilarious sentiments to go with, and ALL for just $5.00!!  And what makes this challenge even sweeter is that ALL proceeds from the sale of this digi-stamp set will go to a local SPCA!  So, you can feel great that you are helping some animals in need when you purchase the set!!

And what would a challenge be without a PRIZE!?  Just upload your card to the PCP gallery {HERE} using the tag sk032010, for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate from Whimsie Doodles!  The lucky winner will be chosen next Saturday, March. 27th!


  
Isn't this sketch the best?  I love Korin's sketches at THE SWEET STOP, they are awesome!!  I took this sketch and turned it sideways and then realized that it was totally similar to the sketch we were to use for the PaperCraftPlanet PAWS I CARE challenge!  So I combined the two and VIOLA!  If you play along this week at The Sweet Stop, you will be entered to win a prize!  THREE FREE DIGIS at The Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps STORE HERE!! WOOOHOOO!  I love FREE!!

My Fuzzy Wuzzy SPIN on this card may be hard to find!  NOPE it isn't the furry dog!  It is the scalloped ribbon on the left; it is velvet! The velvet ribbon is by American Crafts, the pawprint ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, the papers are by My Mind's Eye and the pearls are from Kaiser Scrapbook!  The oval punch is by Stampin' Up and I used Copics to color my image.

I am also entering this card over at TOTALLY GORJUSS!  This week's challenge is RIBBON!!! And WELL, HELLO!?  Look at that uber cute pawprint ribbon!  Just begs to be seen, doesn't it!?

Be sure to check out all of the SugarBabies cards inspired by this sketch at the SWEET STOP BLOG HERE!

See you tomorrow! 
I have some exciting news to share!
