Woofer - Twofer

It's all about "Pets" in Blogland right now in honor of Darnell's wonderful Twofer challenge!

I don't have any pets (other than Bob) but if I did have I would dress them up like these cute little pups.

This fun birthday card has a surprise inside!  When you open it up out pops an ice cream cone!!

I will link to the products from below but the stamp set and paper are from Inky Antics.  I was actually surprised when I did a search today to find that the product is still available as I purchased the stamp set and special Honeycomb paper years!! ago : ).  Check them out Inky Antics has quite a few different stamp sets that use the special paper like this one.  They really are fun for a kid's card.

My next card is an Encouragement card.

I stamped their britches on pp and pieced them on.  I like how this card turned out but I don't like that you can't see my clouds!! I just HAD to darken the picture down far enough for you to be able to see them.  In real life you can see them but....  all I can say is thank goodness for Photoshop! : )

That is all I have today except to remind you that when everything is coming your way! ... you're in the wrong lane! : )

Please join the fun at Darnell's Twofer Challenge Blog.  the current challenge runs until the 24th.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Oh golly, Patti, these are so sweet and charming. I remember those specialty papers being sold a few years ago. How neat that they are still available for purchase. Your designs maximize the smiles for sure. That little guy holding up the cone and then his friend is so cute. Thanks so much for sharing. Hugs!

These are so cute Patti! The honeycomb ice cream on the inside is such a fun surprise! Those little dogs are darling in their overalls too. I love your clever idea of one lifting up the other. What good friends are for, right? I think you've got the winners for this challenge!

Such a fun and cute pup image, which you've made your own. What a wonderful and fun surprise on the inside of the first one. Great colouring and paper piecing on the second card and such a clever them both! (fun Photoshop image too xxx).

Marcia HIll said... dog loving heart is just in LOVE with both of these cards Patti!! Your pup images are just so dang cute and I love those overalls they're dressed in...especially the paper pieced ones!! And of course that cup cake is just way too much fun...LOVE it!

Two adorable cards, Patti. Love both of them.

Jill said...

Oh so cute, Patti! Always love seeing what you've been creating!!

Loll said...

Adorable! I love the pup and his britches!! :) What a fun card with the cupcake that opens. Any kid would love this card ... even the big ones. And how cute to have two of them on your second card. So creative and clever, Patti. And nice photo shop picture ... I was confused at first. The drawn in smiles are a big freaky! :) Thanks for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge! xx

Bobby said...

I love that inside surprise, Patti, and so would any kid who got the card. Your little pups are adorable in their britches.

Happy Dance said...

Oh Patti! First, that pup image is adorable!!! Sweet, simple lines and I have to say that I love them all dressed up in overalls! Both cards are wonderfully CAS, and you know how much that makes me smile! The patterned paper britches for your encouragement card works perfectly, and adds just that little extra 'oomph!!' I think that the way you've 'lifted' one, really sends a positive message. But secondly, and most adorably, is that honeycomb ice cream cone. That will send a million smiles to whomever receives this sweet, sweet birthday card. These are just wonderful. Thank you so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge!!! Bev

Oh, my word! Those are so cute and adorable and I love how the honeycomb ice cream cone pop up is inside the first one. You rocked this challenge!

Darnell said...

You funny, Patti! Now I think I'll have that last photo of those karazy pups seared on my eyeballs for days!! That really is a cute pup, so versatile, and I love how you have designed your two occasions with him! Opening that birthday card and finding the ice cream cone will have some little one squealing! I can see their face as the close it, open it, close it, open it, clo ..! And what a fun scene you created for your thank you design with the extra special paper-pieced britches!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell

How FUN is that pop up ice-cream cone!! I think I remember seeing products like that at our local Archiver's years ago. Sure do miss that store. These are as sweet as it gets Patti, darling cards!
