Great challenge Jeanne! Think happy thoughts and make someone smile! Well, I hope I have achieved that with this card. This dog and his cute kittie slippers puts a smile on my face!
That's why I need your help. I don't have this dog stamp. This was copied and printed with the computer. It is a retired Penny Black stamp named Fetching Slippers. I am looking for someone who might have this actual stamp, and be willing to stamp me a few images of it and send them to me. I would be forever grateful! Please message me if you have the stamp and are willing to do this! :0)
For my card, I came up with this little scene from a comic in the newspaper. I added the mirror, pot, flowers and the dog with slippers. I clear eb'd the dog, pot top, and flowers. The dog was popped up. I drew and cut out the curtains from a magazine picture. Didn't realize the dog was so big and that he would cover up the best part of the curtains! lol The whole scene was put on a white card that I sponged the edges black.
The mirror was made by sticking metal repair tape on a piece of cs, then painting the squares with acrylic paint. Well.....I hope you are a smiling! TFL :0)

Yes, Cathy, it did make me smile, and laugh, very much! You snuck this one in when I was commenting on your last one LOL! Absolutely love your little comic scene. All that work but what a wonderful result. I love every little detail and the fabulous colouring of the PB image. This is a great stamp and I know a USA company that has retired Penny Black stamps. I'll look it up tomorrow and send you the link. You never know, they might have it. Perfedt WOW card!

Made me smile too. Most of your cards make me smile or my jaw drop!!! I am not sure how you clean pools and think up these creations. Hope none of your clients are on SCS. They may start wondering tooooooo. I hear what you plan to do, see the results and still wonder how...I am starting to sound like my sista, Anne!!! Oh no, she will need another vacation if she reads this!!

Oh this it too cute! I have never seen this image before but how adorable! Hope you find him! Love all the fun details you put in this! Love the mirror, vase of flowers, bg... it is all fantastic! I know it ain't easy to get things to "fit" size wise when doing these little scenes (esp. mine tonight) but I think this came out awesome!!!
