"Working Like a Dog"

I've been "working like a dog" the last few months, and especially the last three or four weeks.  I just had to flip my calendar because September 1st is here.  It has been nearly a month since I posted last, and I really want to get back in touch with my creative side. 

Hmmm . . . "working like a dog?"  Anyone who has been to my house and has seen my dogs would not relate to the term.  My companion dogs do not break a sweat.  They spend their days being lazy and cute, and they do a great job with both of those things.

So I decided to take a break from work today, I created a little something for the Paper Smooches Spark Challenge.  During my creative process, I realized I was looking at an old challenge.  But I was having too much fun, so I kept at it.  It was a color challenge . . .

And here is my design, using some awesome paper from Authentique coupled with my Paper Smooches stamps and dies.  

I actually cut her mouth so she could hold the flower.   Yes!  She is a she!  She reminds me of my sweet little girl, Samantha. 

I can't enter the challenge, because I missed the deadline.  But the inspiration was AWESOME, and it was a nice break from "working like a dog."

Supplies Used
Cardstock from Bazzill
Pattern Paper from Authentique
Stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
Ink from Close To My Heart
Ribbon from my stash
