A Working Gal's Simple card!

I wanted to make a card last night...but was getting tired. Over the weekend I had colored some of the images that Florence had sent me. I really love my Prismas! So last night I pulled this little guy out and adhered him to some chocolate card stock. I layered it again on the red scalloped paper and again on the light brown. Paper was from DCWV. I distressed the layers. I wanted to sew.....but was really not in the mood....so no sewing..... I added some scalloped chocolate paper to peek out from behind and added some black sparkly dots. Then.....I added this "dog" tag. Does anyone remember these? I bought them probably 10 years ago and thought at the time how cool they were! They came with like a thousand individual words printed on "dog" tags! I am really digging into my old supplies lately! I used my Sharpie to highlight the word, heart. I added a red heart and drew a paw print on it. I also used a bit of ribbon and stamped the I and You with my Snap stamps. I think for my next blog candy which will be soon....whenever I can get my butt to the store, I am going to ask people to use some old supplies....old paper, old stamps, old embellishments....so start thinking!

Very cute, I love the coloring and it is still involved for a simple card woman! I'm impressed.
I remember those dogtags but suprisingly I don't own any but I could use an excuse to use some bead letters I bought 6 years ago and never used!
Call me anytime, Fox Security has an answering machine. lol
