Furry friends

Hi friends!

Today I've got a pair of cards to show.  They're 4x4 cards, which I cut down from premade card bases that I had lying in a drawer.  The background paper was made by me by rubbing distress ink all over my craft mat, spraying it down with water (and a little stamp cleaner- oops, grabbed the wrong bottle!) and then using it as an ink pad and stamping the polka dots on with my very favorite background stamp ever.  Personalized backgrounds!

I cut the circle mats with my nestabilities.  I don't do a ton of manual die cutting, but buying the two sets of circle dies was a really good investment.  Between them and the few circle punches I have, I'm just about always set for the right size circle I need.  The text paper is from an Authentique 6x6 pad.

I stamped the sentiments and images from two Jaded Blossom stamp sets- Puppy Love and Kitty Kitty. Then I colored in the image with my Bic markers.  Now they're a cute little set of furry friends!

I'm entering these cards into the following challenge:  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, You Gotta Have Friends
