Just Us Girls #120 - Color Challenge

Hello friends!  I'm sooo glad it's the weekend!  My students have been trying my patience this week.  I think we need another break from each other!  Sigh...

Well, let's talk stamping and get our problems off our shoulders, shall we?  It always relaxes me...especially when I'm coloring like I did today.  Over at Just Us Girls, our challenge this week is a color challenge and our amazingly talented Vicki has chosen some Valentine colors.  So I had to go with that theme!
OK, so is this not a cute image or what?  I purchased it eons ago at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.  It's from Inky Antics called Sniffing Treats.  I love dogs, so all cute dog stamps like this one just jump into my basket when I'm shopping there!  However, this is the first time this stamp has seen ink!  Why is that?  This dog just reminded me of our dog, Lizzie.  (Sidebar here:  As I was making this, she kept coming over to me in my stamp room.  My stamp room is in the basement and on the other side of the wall is her bed.  She is very tired tonight after a long day with her master (my hubby) and she wants me out of the basement so she can sleep!  Her eyes are just pleading for me to turn off the radio and leave!  Too funny!)  Anyway, I colored the image with the red and pink colors (and brown for the dog).  I added some glitter gel pen to the ribbon on the heart.  The punched heart border was done with a Martha Stewart punch.  I salvaged some of the hearts that where punched out of the border to place above the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Love Everywhere by Taylored Expressions.  Cute stamp set!  I added a red velvet button tied with some pink floss.
I followed this sketch from {Freshly Made} Sketches.  I just found their blog and am now following it!  I love me some great sketches, and their's seem to be fresh and fun!
The JUGs DT have made some really pretty cards this week!  The blog looks so pretty in all this red, pink, and white!  Stop by these blogs to see more fabulous inspiration from the team and our Featured Designer.
