Happy Barkday to Lori



Happy "Barkday" Lori!!! It's Lori McCroskey's Birthday and the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team has decided to throw our amazing owner a surprise birthday blog hop!!!  She has no idea!!! This was definitely a covert operation that's for sure.  Katie had to sneak onto Lori's Clearly iStamp blog to start it all off, and each participating DT member has created a special birthday card for Lori and is posting that creation today in their blog hop post.

If you just happened upon my blog today, you'll want to start at Lori's blog where you'll find Candy's creation.  You should have arrived from the amazing Katlyn's blog where I'm sure you saw some great eye candy. 

For my card, I've used Kim Teasdale's set, Dog Days and Dog Days Celebrations.  I've watercolored the dog with my Tombow Markers and a waterbrush.  I then sponged in a sky and some grass to create an outdoor type scene.  I used a button instead of the balloon to create a bit more dimension in the card.  I love how it turned out. The DP is from Crate Paper and Bo Bunny. I've had it sitting on my desk all week waiting for time to make this card.  It just screams fun!!! 

Thank you for visiting my blog today and your next stop on the blog hop is Sarah Taylor.  If for some reason, there is a break in the hop, there will be a master list at Lori's blog.   

Enjoy the eye candy that the DT has for you today!!!
