A Muse-ing Little Scene

Would a "hotdog" dog dream about a hotdog? I don't know, but this little scene came to mind when I saw the hotdog on a skewer and little Sniffer. This is my "entry" in the Scene challenge for A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA.

I am sooo looking forward to this long weekend! I'll be working at Angela's on Saturday which is always fun. On Sunday and Monday I'll be cleaning my craft area and designing cards for some upcoming classes. I know this doesn't sound very relaxing, but to me it's just heaven to have two whole days to do what I want. I hope your weekend is filled with fun and relaxation!

I just love the palm tree and hammock and a setting sun just makes it all so peaceful. I masked the blue band and stamped the 'island' and sun and palm tree. I then used chalks to create the rays. It's a little difficult to see, but I also used the Rosie's Roadshow Cloud template and chalks to give the sky a cloudy effect. All images and notecard are A Muse.

I forgot...

I wanted to describe this card and I totally forgot. I love how the donkey peeks out from between the cacti. I got this effect with masking. I stamped the cactus on the right, masked it and stamped the donkey. I then masked the donkey and stamped the cactus on the left. Voila! No matter how many times I do this, it still seem like magic, but of course, I'm easily amused.

This week's A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA challenge is using punches. I can't enter the contest, but I think my card fits. I used a Mega Scallop square and a circle punch.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Day!

This is my first posting and I have a lot to be happy about! Here's my list:

1. I have great (and patient) friends who helped me set up this blog.

2. I heard that I have 2 cards published in the newest Take Ten. I haven't seen them yet and the anticipation is killing me.

3. I'm looking forward to this 3 day weekend.

What are you happy about?
