Ruff's Up!

I had volunteered to send a card to a tween boy and hadn't gotten around to it until now. So this was my attempt at boy humor. First time I used gems for this type of embellishment. Hee... Hee... I think when you have dogs you spend a lot of time cleaning up after them. :)

The inside of the card has a little pop-up with the same dog and it says "What's the scoop?"

I hope he will appreciate the humor. I will try it out on my son when he gets home to see what he says.

My second card is a scrapling which I made into a magnetic bookmark. My middle daughter gets very little attention being the middle child and loves to read. So I combined the Hero Arts challenge which is to mail a card to someone into a special bookmark for my middle daughter. She will love it as she is a big reader and it has her initial on it.

The stamps for the bookmark / Scrapling are all Hero Arts. I covered the K with purple stickers and it doesn't show in the picture as nicely but it is a beautiful sparkly purple. The ribbon runs along the inside.

I used a thin magnet that we got at a parade. We are always getting these little rectangle magnets at parades, in the mail, etc. So this was a great way to recycle it as it is very easy to cut them and use them as they are so thin.

The dog-house is hero arts stamps for the dog and bone.

Thanks for stopping by...

    I don't know about a teen boy, but I loved the little dog card. It really made me smile.
