Here's the order of today's HOP:

Wags 'n Whiskers blog

Back to the Wags blog and comment on your favourite design!

For today's card, I chose to work with "Toby's Big Day"...what an adorable birthday image!! The papers are October Afternoon, and the sentiment is from another clear set I had in my stash of stamps.

I coloured Toby with Copic markers and created a "dotty" background after cutting him out with Spellbinders. The present was paper pieced with more October Afternoon paper, and shaded with a Copic marker.

Are you loving these images?? I know we are...they've been so much fun to play with! Your next stop is the talented Crystal who has a gorgeous project to show you today! Remember to leave comments along the way for your chance to win!

When you are finished hopping, you can buy these sweet new June images HERE!

Blessings stampers...and have fun!
