MCT 30th Edition Release Blog Hop: Puppy Smiles

by Veronica

It's Release Day!!! And you know what that means: all of the fabulous new products you've been seeing on the Design Team's blogs are available for purchase today - and at 20% off (more on that below). If you've landed here from Kim's blog, you're on the right track. If not, check out Emma's blog so you can start this Hop from the very beginning.

Today I've totally re-imagined one of the new dies into something completely different. Can you see what I did?

Try to SPOT it. (<--- that was a hint)

Did you guess the puppy? You're right! I took the chick die from Hello Chickie, flipped it upside-down and made a sweet little puppy in a basket. The puppy's face is a combination of Peachy Keen face stamps. The eyes are from the Princess Face Assortment and the nose/mouth is from  Critter Faces Set A Medium.

I hand-cut the ears and drew on the spots. The little basket (also from Hello Chickie) hides the fact that the puppy doesn't actually have a dog's body. I stamped the sentiment from Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments (available today) onto one of the Stitched Square Speech Bubbles.

This card is for my cousin who just had a little boy. Her baby shower isn't until next weekend - little Chance decided to come almost 2 months early!!! Mommy and baby are doing very well. I'm usually a gift-giver, but since I won't be able to make it to the shower, I'm sending a gift card. I used the Stitched Gift Card Pocket on the inside of the card to hold it.
