Meet Cookie

I've used some new stash on today's card...I got some Hobbycraft vouchers for my birthday earlier this month, and popped in to the Hobbycraft in Norwich whilst I was there over the Bank Holiday and picked up a few goodies. This adorable chap is 'Cookie' from the 'Make a Wish' set by Helz Cuppleditch...the balloons were separate...and I doodled the string. I used the 'out of the frame' technique when I cut him out with my Nesties. I made the background papers, by stamping a 'Paw Print' background stamp (by Hobbbycraft) on plainish papers from the 'Max & Whiskers' pad by Basic Grey using Distress Inks ('Tea Dye' on the yellow, 'Faded Jeans' on the blue, and 'Fired Brick' on the red). I inked around all of the edges with more 'Tea Dye' distressed them, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.
