The Pooch is Back!

That's right, the pooch is back at it again! Last week I posted two cards using TCP stamps, and I commented on how much I love TCP images but for some reason they are very challenging for me to use. Well, I think I figured out two possible reasons for this:

1. Have you ever seen Leigh O'Brien's work, her TCP work specifically? I tell ya, that woman is unbelievably talented...just take a look at her blog, Sunflower Studio! If I could just have a hangnail of her talent, and now she's been knitting and sewing-geesh, the girl is on fire! So, here's my thinking--I think I have to create some sort of Leigh O'Brien magic every time I use the Kitty or the Pooch, thus setting myself up for failure before I even begin, oy!

2. Second reason is that I just don't use the stamps often enough! The more I used those sweet little bad-boys last week, the easier it became to make something that I was really pleased with, thus Exhibit A:

The moral of the story: "Render creation using TCP images on weekly basis!".

Amy, I would say you have achieved your goal, but then I'm afraid you wouldn't practice your TCP each week. This is adorable!!

WHAT?! Your card is fabulous, as usual, Amy! You always inspire me! In fact, I'm gonna add you to my blogroll so I don't forget to check in often. I can't believe I hadn't done that yet. I must be sick-in-da-head. (I have been Mrs. Lame-O this year in the blog and forum department. I haven't even kept up with my magazines either...sooo lame! Oh dear...) Thank you thank you thank you for the wonderful "shout-out". YOU ROCK!!
